The Wikipedia Usability Project aims to make Wikipedia easier for everyone to use.

This project aims to promote the application of usability best practices and/or web usability. Many other projects focus on the content of Wikipedia - this project focuses on the presentation of that content.

Issues[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

The logo of the project by Kooky. Green represents the user, the three branches represent the web of information Wikipedia provides, and the middle path is the clearest, the one the project strives for. The shape recalls a blooming flower and the Wikimedia logo, as well.

This project hopes to make Wikipedia easy and pleasant to use by applying itself to the following areas:

Queries[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

  • Wikipedia talk:Community Portal#Request [୧] - "is there no way to get a better interface? most people have javascript its just that its all so very confusing- maybe that is supposed to put most people off? NO indication where one is supposed to join up/post/ pages and pages....protocols... and all the jargon offputting. you need to attract people who don't necessarily have computer knowledge but subject knowledge you should make it easy for eg. my grandfather, who is an expert on aviation history to contribute to this online resource- its all so very confusing!!!!!"
  • User:OwenBlacker/Usability — a disagreement between two users (one of whom is me) over matters of accessibility and usability that may be of interest to members of this project. — OwenBlacker 19:59, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
  • At Talk:Isotope table (complete) we are debating a proposal by User:Greg L to put the article's full isotope table, and Isotope table (divided)'s table, in a single larger article. Much of the argument is about usability, as well as performance. Input from the Usability project might be useful. --JWB (talk) 16:49, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

{{User WPUsability}}

  • M (talk) — Non-broken, compliant, and proper CSS and HTML code. Setting standards for meta elements (boxes, tables, etc.)
  • Dodoïste (talk) 21:09, 12 September 2010 (UTC) - Especially to work on navigation architecture, menus, breadcrumb and seven plus or minus two.
  • SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. – I am all about usability. Getting proper full HTML support in MediaWiki has been a years-long goal of mine (with some progress actually made against initial developer reluctance to add support for things like <dfn> and <kbd>), along with undoing bad practices on Wikipedia that violate the letter or spirit of the HTML, XMTML or other specs, commonly accepted usability wisdom, or known accessibility maxims.
