Facilitate deployment of the visual editor at the Japanese Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Estimated Story Points


During the last months, several announcements have been delivered there about the upcoming deployment of the visual editor.
After soliciting feedback for months, was resolved.
The last round of feedback (from en.wp editors who know Japanese) has also been positive.
I posted several notes to "village pumps" and users' talk pages last week.
The main announcement, which includes instructions about the single edit tab system, has been translated.

Event Timeline

Next steps:

  1. drafting a short notice for noticeboard and editnotice, as suggested by a community member;
  2. linking to the local, quick-help page that Miya wrote;
  3. moving the latest announcement from the April archive where it ended up automatically to the current page.

All of the above has been solved, thanks to Miya's help.

Data point: 4682 registered editors made 70k edits last week; 5445 IPs made 25k edits. Hence, @Jdforrester-WMF, I'd like to request a staged rollout (IPs later, separately from everybody else). Thanks.

We have agreed that the rollout starts on Wednesday 11th when it's morning in Japan, and it affects registered editors this time.
All of this has been communicated to the community, in addition to highlighting the useful fix for launching WT or VE from keyboard shortcuts.
Thanks @Trizek-WMF for your help in watching the situation during these weeks!

I think work from now on is regular maintenance.
