Story

As an editor who is motivated to improve Wikipedia and collaborate with others seeking to do the same, I want people who are starting new conversations on talk pages and/or commenting in existing ones to do so in ways that we, as a Movement, deem to be civil and respectful [i] so that the wikis can remain an environment all people can describe as, "...inclusive, welcome, safe, and harassment-free..." [ii]

Requirements

Mockups

Note: see T274832#7178086 for thoughts about how this might be integrated with the DiscussionTools interfaces.


i. Read: in ways that uphold the Universal Code of Conduct

Event Timeline
