Community Updates: sharing initial designs[edit]

Newcomer homepage with proposed Community Updates module

The Growth team will test a new module on the Newcomer homepage that can be used by communities to highlight important community events and initiatives. This Community Updates module will be Community Configurable, so communities can decide to highlight specific events, projects, campaigns, and initiatives, that are set by admins using Community Configuration.

We are sharing initial designs with our pilot wikis (Arabic and Spanish Wikipedia), the Wikimedia Event Organizers Telegram group, and also sharing our plans here. This module’s final design will depend on your feedback.

The hope is that this new module will help new editors deepen their involvement with the wikis and connect with other contributors, projects, and community initiatives.


  • Do you have any feedback or concerns about this project idea?
  • Do you think this module will help your community highlight important events, campaigns, and projects?
  • This feature will be designed to be Community Configurable by Admins. Do you think this feature will be used on your wiki?
  • Do you have any suggestions for making this feature more impactful or meaningful to your community?

Thanks, I've just messaged you privately. Although I also welcome any public feedback here, even if it is critical. Thanks, - KStoller-WMF (talk) 22:26, 26 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
