@Volker_E can you give an estimate for when you'll be able to complete "Recent Update cards" above? @DarTar and I are trying to finalize content for launch. LMK if you have questions about requirements beyond what I've described in the task description.

@Whatamidoing-WMF I would double-check with legal on this. Just because the microsurvey is a MediaWiki extension doesn't necessarily mean that it needs to adhere to the same standards as AFT, or that oversighters need to be involved. Unless I missed something. I assume the data will be captured and stored privately and securely, and made available (if at all) after the fact. So from a legal perspective whether the survey responses will be public or not will be handled by the consent form, and our default is to let people know that they are releasing their responses into the public domain.

Also, @Volker_E Have you done any work on the 3-column link list class (see ticket description above for details)? Looking at your commit history, I don't think you explicitly created this as a class. I tried to 'fake' it by using featured project cards, but it didn't work well, for two reasons:

@Volker_E I added content using the new team member and featured project cards. I'm running into a small alignment problem with both classes: They align on the bottom instead of the top. This creates 'crooked' rows when there are different amounts of content on adjacent cards.

@Deskana @Neil_P._Quinn_WMF @jmatazzoni I see that this is being de-prioritized. I understand that y'all are busy and that impact analysis is often seen as an unnecessary extra step, especially when the product seems to be "working fine", but I think in this case it would be really useful to perform such an analysis. If Neil or some other analyst wants to take this on, I can collaborate with that person on the study design.
