Make Draft namespace visually distinct from articles
Open, MediumPublicFeature


Author: swalling

(Placing this in Wikimedia requests since it is specific to a namespace configured on Wikimedia sites. English Wikipedia for now with bug 60264 unconfirmed.)

English Wikipedia community members have requested that pages in the Draft namespace make it clear to readers and editors that they are not yet encyclopedia articles.[1] Currently, there is little styling on them that is different, other than the title prepended with "Draft:".

We currently are working on several design options under discussion with the community,[2] and would probably apply a design change to all Draft pages on all wikis. This may require us to fulfill the new extension request at bug 57315 depending on preferred implementation.
