The Collaboration team at the Wikimedia Foundation is tasked with encouraging more new users to sign up for and contribute to Wikimedia projects, encourage new editors to continue participating, and help active contributors to be effective.
You can find us in IRC at.
The team is currently working on:
- Designing and developing cross-wiki notifications, and other Echo improvements.
- See tasks linked from phab:T113228
- See a short list at Notifications#Future plans and requests for feedback.
- Researching workflow processes.

- Flow, discussion and collaboration software. Now in production as opt-in for talk pages, help pages and village pump-style discussion forums, on wikis that request it.
