rOMWC290f5eb56408: Enable DiscussionTools as a beta feature on four wikis
I have no "authority" here, but I would prefer if the Editing-team provides feedback first, before deploying this. I love to see the interest in trying out DiscussionTools but I would also want to make sure that the Editing-team has capacity to handle feedback from more of our communities.
T245794 and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/rOMWC290f5eb564088a454ea61884669648b2e5f5b749 for reference.
However, for the time being, please do not enable DiscussionTools at zh.wiki.
As @Aklapper mentioned , before we can deploy these tools to more wikis, our team needs to finalize our strategy for how we will scale to more wikis while continuing to be responsive to feedback.
You can expect more details from us before about our plan to scale these features to more wikis before the end of next week (8-May).
@VulpesVulpes825, in stating the above, I assume you are referring to the following sentence that appeared in our latest newsletter , "If your community also wants early access to the new tool, contact..."?
If so, I can see how this led you all to think we are ready to starting enabling the features on more wikis at this moment.
I'm sorry this created confusion; I hope the plan we will share in the next couple weeks will make it clear how we will be enabling DiscussionTools on wikis that are requesting them.
Thank you for your patience, @VulpesVulpes825.
To ensure the Reply tool is working as expected, it will first be made available by way of adding an extra bit of text ( dtenable=1) to the URL of the page people are wanting to use the tools on. [ii]
Once we are all confident the tool is working as expected, it can then be deployed as a Beta Feature.

i. Considering all that is going on, I think it important to communicate that plans may change. If they do, we will communicate this.
ii For example, to use the Reply tool on this page, https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:%E4%BA%92%E5%8A%A9%E5%AE%A2%E6%A0%88/%E6%8A%80%E6%9C%AF, people would need to type this URL into their browser: https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:%E4%BA%92%E5%8A%A9%E5%AE%A2%E6%A0%88/%E6%8A%80%E6%9C%AF?dtenable=1.

Enable DiscussionTools as a beta feature on zhwiki
Has been enabled globally using query string parameter. Expect Editing Team to take longer time for strategy for expanding this beta feature to zhwiki.
