Current projects[edit]

Accessibility for reading[edit]

The current site typography on desktop and mobile makes readability difficult. We will work on typography and typographical preferences that make the site more accessible, and easier and more efficient to use.

Desktop Improvements[edit]

We have built out improvements to the desktop experience based on research and existing tools. Our goals have been to make wikis more welcoming to new readers and editors, and easier and quicker to use for all (both newcomers and veteran editors). The skin is currently named "Vector (2022)".


Recommendations for communities[edit]

Our changes have an effect on the community-controlled pages and code. This is why we have developed the following recommendations:

Keeping the code stable and aligned with these best practices is important. We gladly assist interface admins, gadget and user script developers, and module and template editors.

Keep in touch[edit]
