Gui, improvement advertised as point 1 in this text. Image: Gryllida.
Here is version 3 of the 'welcome a bit' tool.
1) Now with easier gui signup -- see instructions here.
2) For those of you who receive notifications to talk page, gui is available to remove obsoleted notifications. A script is available now to facilitate this. If you add
to your Special:MyPage/common.js, then at the end of each section which was added by 'welcome a bit' there will be a large blue word 'Remove'. It prompts to delete the corresponding section in two clicks. Thanks to Qwerty number1 for suggesting and testing this feature.
3) Also now the notifications say which categories the articles belong to, and who is their author.
In the next version I plan to sort the list of articles, which you are being notified about, by date. Please share your suggestions.
Usability improvements: This project will make the mobile visual editor easier to use. The goal is to let contributors stay focused on editing and to feel more confident in the editing tools.
Wikimania: Several members of the Editing Team will be attending Wikimania in August 2019. They will lead a session about mobile editing in the Community Growth space. Talk to the team about how editing can be improved.
Talk Pages: In the coming months, the Editing Team will begin improving talk pages and communication on the wikis.
The VisualEditor on mobile is a good place to learn more about the projects we are working on. The team wants to talk with you about anything related to editing. If you have something to say or ask, please leave a message at Talk:VisualEditor on mobile.
