@ppelberg please be more careful when copy-pasting. For example, the following is certainly not true:

testing has preceded the planned introduction of Topic Containers as a Beta Feature at these wikis. //E.g. Central notice campaigns and deployments at all other Wikimedia wikis

– these are the partner wikis, nowhere have Clear Affordances been deployed before.

Good spot, @Tacsipacsi – task description updated.

Originally, this was meant to make several changes. However, right now, only one change is being made: the "[reply]" button will become a "Reply" button.

The next important change in this series is to add a new button at the bottom of the page for starting a ==New topic==.
