Make desktop Topic Containers easier for people to parse
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This task represents the work with revising how the information within the Topic Containers people will see on the desktop version of talk pages is displayed to make it easier for people to understand and engage with them.

Where "understand" and "engage" in this context means making it easier for people to both:

  • A) Recognize the Topic Container as a cohesive unit that represents/summarizes a discussion/all of the content/comments beneath it and
  • B) Read and understand the discrete pieces of information within the Topic Container (e.g. date of last comment, number of people participating in the discussion, number of comments posted in the discussion)

Considerations

  • Whatever we do to evolve the design will need to be able to accommodate a potential future wherein people ought to expect to be able to interact with the pieces of metadata. E.g. upon hovering on "number of people" people will see a list of people who have commented in the discussion (T309752), upon clicking the "last comment" indicator people will be shown the comment that's been posted most recently (T309751).
