The Great Basque Redesign
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Basque Wikipedia has been an early and wide adopter of novelties, such as Wikidata powered infoboxes, ORES article assessments sitewide or a fully renewed frontpage. Nowadays, we are eager to have new products, and give new users, specially students, a place where they can read, edit and interact easier.

This project will receive ideas on what can be made and, more important, how. We want to start this redesign process as soon as possible, and having clear ideas is key for this.

Any idea on how to make things happen is welcome.

@Theklan, will you be at the Hackathon in Prague? If so, we need to talk. :)

@Trizek-WMF Yes, I will be there and yes I'm going to buy all of your products.

Now that is ambitious, Theklan! One more suggestion for an easier article search, either in EU WP or all projects, could be to 1. intelligent search by avoidance of spelling confusion (diacritics, capital letters, etc.), or/and 2. search returns by just adding the first letters of the words contained in the article's name, e.g. Sphinx water erosion hypothesis, result delivered by inserting letters or swehyp (six letters).

That is a suggestion. Cheers
