Features and design work on the Wikimedia MobileFrontend mobile gateway
Status: (2014-10-monthly) This month the mobile web team created a new experimental interface for WikiGrok, a feature designed to provide an easy way to contribute structured data to Wikimedia projects. We are currently showing the two different versions of WikiGrok to readers and logged in users on the mobile beta site on English Wikipedia and gathering qualitative and quantitative data on engagement with the feature and quality of contributions. We also focused on backend integration to allow us to generate Wikidata questions on more articles, in preparation for testing at scale on the stable mobile site in the coming months.
