Hi everyone, Per our blog post last month, we've been testing redesigns for account creation and login across the projects. We've been doing so on an opt-in basis, but we've dealt with any major bugs and translations are complete for quite a few languages.
Starting tomorrow and barring any last minute hiccups, we're going to start rolling out the new designs. Right now we're limiting it to about 30 projects, including the following... - Wikipedia in 21 languages, including English, German, French, Italian, Polish, Dutch, Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, Korean, Czech, Swedish, and others. - In English: Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikispecies, Wikinews, Wiktionary, and Wikiquote. - Wikimedia Commons - Wikidata - Meta - MediaWiki .org There are still local customizations that will need to be made in many of these, but they are the kind of thing that doesn't require a developer to do, just edits to the wiki. Look for announcements soon on your local Village Pump equivalent for more info, or check out our testing documentation. I'll be around to help any of these wikis that don't have an admin handy to make requested changes. The remaining projects we have held off on because there are localizations still to be completed (on translatewiki) or there are problems with localizations already finished. Since the work of localizations is never 100% complete however, we are putting out a hard *deadline of June 5th*, after which we'll be turning on the forms for all projects, in all languages. If you're interested in learning more about which wikis in particular need help, please email me off-list or get in touch via my user talk page anywhere. Please speak up if you have any questions. You can still try these new forms on any Wikimedia project via the method mentioned in the two links below... 1. http://blog.wikimedia.org/2013/04/25/try-new-login-accountcreation/ 2. mediawiki.org/wiki/Account_creation_user_experience/Testing -- Steven Walling https://wikimediafoundation.org/ P.S.

Has anyone figured out how to avoid this in Gmail? _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l
