Support for making MediaSearch the default search experience on Commons
Open, MediumPublic

Description

What is the problem?

We are planning to make MediaSearch the default search experience on Commons, and we need to explain why to the community, seek their feedback, and detail our rollout plan.

How can we help you?

We would like help drafting and posting the announcement, determining the rollout plan, and pinging supportive community members.

What does success look like?

The notice is posted and community members are comfortable with the rollout plan and have an opportunity to give their feedback.

What is your deadline?

We would like to post the notice by the end of February 2021. The first phase of the change (to anonymous users, with an option for logged-in users to opt-in) will take place at the end of March 2021. At the end of April 2021, we plan to promote the change to all users (with a preference to opt-out).
