This task is about providing a more personalized, explanatory welcome message to newcomers with 0 edits about the value of editing.
This is intended to be a short term solution before the newcomer tasks module and other newcomer module improvements are introduced and more actionable recommendations may be incorporated - see task T223221.
1. Rebrand and copy changes:
Update the copy in the module to better explain its purpose and potentially rename the module itself.
2. Provide an illustration or other visual which highlights their 0 status and encourages them to start contributing
The graphic may also indicate to users that connecting with their mentors or asking a help page question also counts as an edit.
Original task description
Homepage mobile user test showed that the unactivated state of the impact module can be confusing and would need further affordance for users to easily understand what could be done from there.
Users showed how misleading for them was to understand:
- what "impact" means
- if articles they have created are also shown there (they find a difference between an article creation and an article edit)
- what "edits to other kinds of pages" are
We propose re-wording the copy of the module to better explain its purpose and potentially rename the module itself.
Proposed rebranding of the module:
- "Your edits"
- "Your work"
