Design Strategy needs wikipersonas.org registered. The domain should redirect to design.wikimedia.org/strategy/wikipersonas.html.
Hello. My name is Bethany and I work in the WMF Design Strategy department. I am working with OIT to make my account compliant so that I can make such requests. Sorry for the confusion.
The domain registration is authorized by Margeigh Novotny, WMF Sr. Director of Product Design; it is not a public discussion. The url design.wikimedia.org/strategy/wikipersonas.html is currently 404. I am trying to get the domain name registered first. I will soon file a task for the landing page.
Hi and welcome @Dendelele! You may want to tell WMF Design Strategy to follow https://office.wikimedia.org/wiki/Guide_for_new_hires#Account_creation in the future, as that makes it possible to recognize and verify WMF employment (I cannot find your name on WMF's internal contact list either). Thanks a lot :)
Hi @Dendelele In general if you want WMF to buy a domain name you would first contact @CRoslof at legal to actually buy it and then SRE to add it to DNS. But before doing that i strongly recommend contacting the SRE team and specifically the Traffic team about these plans. Adding a new domain name isn't a trivial thing. It requires consideration, code/config changes, buying/creating certificates etc. Also SEO people might want to be involved. Is there any place where people can read more about wikipersonas? Is there a certain date associated with this?
@Dendelele / Design-Research: Unfortunately closing this Phabricator task as no further information has been provided since January 2020. After you have provided the information asked for and if this still happens, please set the status of this task back to "Open" via the Add Action... → Change Status dropdown. Thanks.
Hello. Sorry about the delayed response. I am on maternity leave. COVID
delayed our plans to launch the wikipersonas website. It something that
will likely be taken up sometime next year. Sorry fir any inconvenience.
