As we are working on the first version of the Bridge, we have been focusing on two specific areas and we would like to ask your opinion about it.
The first one is editing references. In the first version of the Bridge, we won’t be able to offer the possibility to edit or add references directly in the interface, therefore we will redirect editors to Wikidata.
The second part is information related to the license. We want to make sure that editors are aware that their contribution will be published under CC0, the license of Wikidata, and avoid any misunderstanding. We tried to adapt the standard license information message and to integrate it smoothly in the Bridge interface.
If you want, you can also have a look at the interface behaviour when the user’s connection is too slow to properly launch the Bridge, and when a permission error occurs (if the user is blocked on Wikipedia).
You can check the different paths on this prototype. Please keep in mind that it is a click-dummy, not a fully functioning interface, and most of the time you can only click on one element to progress through the path.
We would also like to point out that some functionality that you might have seen in the previous prototype has been removed. The reason behind it is that we wanted to show you the Bridge as it is planned to be rolled out on the very first wiki for testing it’s first features. The previous prototype included features of the second roll out stage that are currently not under development.
We’re looking forward to hearing what you experienced while testing: what did work for you, what didn’t? Did anything block you or happened unexpectedly?
Thanks in advance!
