Wikipedia is beautiful, and while looking fancy is not one of the main assets of any encyclopedia, emphasizing the strength of Wikipedia through clever UI/UX decisions is an asset. This page is a space for community designers, WMF designers, other Wikipedia enthusiast designers and data analytics to gather thoughts around moving forward with UI/UX needed changes, if any.
