For background on the entire newcomer tasks project, see this epic. Because of the size of this project, this separate epic was created to work on the “guidance” portion of the project.
The newcomer tasks project uses the newcomer homepage to give newcomers a set of suggested articles to edit based on maintenance templates that are in the articles. We believe that users will be more likely to complete suggested edits if they have some in-context guidance that explains how to complete the edit.
Therefore, the work in this epic will be about providing newcomers with guidance in the editing context that explains how to do the edit, helps them understand when they're finished, and gives them ways to learn more.
Our approach will be to use the help panel to provide this guidance.
