New editors were more successful with this new tool.

The New topic tool helps editors create new ==Sections== on discussion pages. New editors are more successful with this new tool. You can read the report. Soon, the Editing team will offer this to all editors at the 20 Wikipedias that participated in the test. You will be able to turn it off at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion.

@Whatamidoing (WMF): I don't understand what is new about opening a new discussion (it is called Add Comment on Wikinews talkpages). There must be something I am missing, but I am pretty sure I have been using this for years on all wmf-wikis?
Just curious. Ottawahitech (talk) 13:53, 8 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It's like the [reply] tool, except for making a ==New section==. Some people like it; others prefer the full editing toolbar. I think it is more popular with new editors. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 01:14, 9 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
