Improving the User Experience of the Wikimedia platform involves making tools easier to use in all the different Wikimedia Projects. Currently, for example, many or most templates need to be manually copied from one Wikimedia Project to another. This means that the majority of templates are not available on smaller Wikis. One possible way to fix this is by creating global templates. Such templates and tools should also be easy to adapt in different languages, for example: to languages with right-to-left script. A part of this Initiative includes improving the documentation of the current tools to make it easier to adapt and reuse them.
Tools to connect cross-project and cross-language functionalities to provide an enhanced experience of the knowledge contained in the Wikimedia ecosystem for a particular interest, informational need, or inquiry.
- Clear pathways for advancing new wiki proposals (including new language versions) and for reusing community-developed software features on them.
- Developer tooling and high-quality documentation to allow technical contributors to create and maintain tools with usability and efficiency.
