Why are we doing this?
As we continue to work on making Wikitext easier to learn and understand for all users, we would like to explore how a guided introduction to Wikitext could potentially help users more quickly learn how to work with Wikitext.
As a new editor, I'd like for there to be an introduction to Wikitext the first time I visit the editor
- Include on boarding screens before the first time a user edits, both to introduce them to the general rules of editing and also to show them common syntax elements.
- Include a sort of sandbox article where specific syntax elements are 'highlighted with a blue dot and the user can click around to see what each syntax element represents

- These screens use the same layout as the main app on boarding screens
- Background 'confetti' should animate out from the center of the illustrations as per main app on boarding
- Reading themes are supported and text and UI elements should be adapted to fit the theme. Illustrations will remain the same as on default.
- Tapping 'Skip' on the first screen or 'Get started' on the last screen brings user to the editing interface.
- Animating elements of the illustrations
- Creating a place where users can re-visit these screens later
