Talk pages are integral to many workflows including receiving feedback on edits from other contributors.
To make it easier and more intuitive for Junior and Senior Contributors to *participate* on Talk pages, the Editing-team is exploring ways to improve the workflow(s) for starting a new discussion. In an effort to improve Junior Contributors' experiences starting new discussions on talk pages, we designed a workflow that initiates from the new topic button and transports a contributor directly into the article where they will draft and publish a new topic and discussion on the Talk Page. We will now conduct a series of usability tests to ensure that the workflow is an improvement from the current workflow that we had previously tested.
**The primary goals of this test are to gain insights on the following: **
- What parts of workflow do Junior Contributors have difficulty with?
- What mistakes do Junior Contributors consistently make in the process of attempting to start new discussions?
- What about the new workflow do contributors find to be intuitive?
- Does this workflow break any workflows of existing Senior Contributors?
//Note: We are coming into this testing knowing that discoverability is an issue and will continue to be a concern after this feature is (knock on wood) implemented.//
