Jan Paul Posma and Ryan Kaldari completed the back-end work and fixed bugs. Roan Kattouw reviewed the code and enabled the extension on a public prototype wiki that was used for informal user testing. The extension was then deployed to the English Wikipedia on June 30 (see announcement).

The code was completed, and the feature deployed to the English Wikipedia at the end of June. The Product research team published a basic analysis of its usage, and stories of its evolving usage and impact. This project is now considered to be completed.

Development was completed in July, with minor fixes in August. Dario Daraborelli analyzed data from the usage of the tool on the English Wikipedia, which showed that WikiLove messages were disproportionately sent by new editors. Data specifications were published in preparation for the release of data dumps; Summer of Research fellows also worked on an algorithm to automatically categorize WikiLove comments.
