@Pginer-WMF a small gotcha came up regarding the button label 0 Languages (which goes back to the recurring question of whether the count on the button should be the total number of languages available, or the number of additional languages available) — curious what you think about the following:
looks good to me 👏
for now let's leave this as-is (i.e. Pass)

Alright, I tested these two options on usertesting.com:

my apologies for not clearly separating the two decisions here:

@ovasileva @Jdlrobson — after @Volker_E and I spoke today we realized that a slightly different button styling should be used here. Apologies from both of us for not bringing this up sooner. cc @RHo @Pginer-WMF

@ovasileva @Jdlrobson: @RHo just pointed out to me that the yellow notice doesn't get added to the user links, it is actually the Talk page link transformed into (or replaced by) the yellow notice. In other words the yellow notice IS a special version of the talk page link. I'm noting this because it might mean that option #2 in the description is more complicated than we thought (since in new vector the Talk link isn't exposed on the page, it's inside the user menu).
after speaking with @ovasileva today we are leaning towards keeping the status quo: two separate buttons. Some notes:
after further considerations I've decided to move forward with the down-arrow icon:

@ovasileva putting this in needs QA for you to take a look at. Things to try:
additional context: on mobile there is a "Log in" button within the main menu, and from there you can click the "Join Wikipedia" button. As far as I can tell there is no "Join Wikipedia" available aside from going through the "Log in" button. I wonder if there is any way to compare the data between mobile and desktop to see if it provides any direction for us @ovasileva ?

@Pginer-WMF thanks for the information and mockups.

@ovasileva and I chatted about this earlier today and came up with a few alternatives. Also de-scoping anything that would require us re-building the login form...

@ovasileva I've made most of the updates we discussed:

@Ladsgroup do these look better?

just remembering that we did have an aspirational idea early on that we would communicate whether or not a page is locked/protected within the Edit button (similar to what we do in Minerva)
@Pginer-WMF thank you for your thoughts. I am processing them. In the meantime wanted to post these two options which don't have a "person" icon:
