The Editing team is working on mw:Talk pages project/replying. The Reply tool is one result of the big mw:Talk pages consultation 2019. Editing is planning to offer the Reply tool to your community as a Beta Feature soon, probably on Wednesday, 14 October. The Reply tool has been used to make more than 25,000 comments at about 20 wikis so far. Your Wikipedia was chosen for the next group because you are already working with the Growth team.
Here's what you need to know:
- Using the Reply tool is optional. It will be turned off. If you want to try it, please go to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures next Wednesday (or maybe Thursday).
- There are a few things that you might want to check.
- Check mw:Help:DiscussionTools/Why can't I reply to this comment? for information about "unsigned" templates and other information.
- Some languages use a particular style for signatures. For example, Japanese does not add a space between the comment and the signature. I don't think that's the case here, but if I've guessed wrong, then you can define the signature format for all users at MediaWiki:Discussiontools-signature-prefix.
- Missing or wrong translations can be fixed at Translatewiki.net.
- If you have questions or encounter problems, please leave a note at mw:Talk:Talk pages project/replying. That's the fastest way to reach the devs.
If you have questions or concerns about this Beta Feature, please contact me.
