At Talk:Code_of_Conduct/Draft#Wider_participation.2C_still there is a discussion about how to announce calls for feedback about the proposed Code of Conduct for technical spaces to mediawiki.org contributors. The idea of a watchlist notice has been suggested. As far as I am aware, we haven't used this feature in mw.o before. I guess this is a good place to ask for feedback about using this feature for this purpose.
Technically, this seems to be done by editing MediaWiki:Watchlist-details. Questions:
- Is this use of watchlist notice OK or not?
- Should we do it by editing MediaWiki:Watchlist-details or is there another way?
- Should we use plain text with links or i.e. a Template:Notice?
- How often and how long should these notices be kept, i.e. One week every time that there is a major call for feedback or more often?
