[Epic] Talk pages consultation 2019 support
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Danny is working on plans for a large-scale global consultation about talk pages, with the goal of coming to consensus as a movement about building or changing an on-wiki discussion system that will work for all of the Wikimedia projects. The consultation will start with coming to consensus on the problems that we need to solve, the good things about existing talk pages that we need to keep, and a common definition of what "better" means. It should end with a set of feature requirements that a product team can build next year.

This is going to be a big, high-touch project of uncertain duration, and it's going to need a considerable amount of support from Community Relations, both in the planning and execution.


Timeline:

Phase 0, Jan-mid - Feb 2019: Planning
Phase 1, mid-Feb - end of March: Collect information
Phase 2, April: Trade-offs and prioritization
Phase 3, scheduled for May: Review potential direction


First steps on this ticket will be conversations between Danny and CRs, to figure out the pre-planning and source the cross-functional working group.

Hey @DannyH, thank you for creating this task.

First steps on this ticket will be conversations between Danny and CRs, to figure out the pre-planning and source the cross-functional working group.

Is this something we can wait until Erica and Benoit are back from holiday to schedule?

Hi @CKoerner_WMF - yes, I scheduled a meeting for Friday Aug 31st.

Sorry, I thought this had already been communicated. Given his extensive knowledge, interest and passion in the area, Trizek will be the main person to follow this project, with a second specialist to support him (name TBD).

@DannyH, since as he says he'll be OoO next week, I'd really appreciate if the aforementioned meeting could be rescheduled.
I can ask your dept admin myself as soon as you give me the green light :)

I've now asked Megan to look into this. :)

She has kindly highlighted potential new dates, so I moved accordingly.
