How the deployment process works

  1. The Growth team deploys the features in "dark mode". The features are available to anyone who enables the features in their preferences.
  2. The Growth contacts the wiki, because this wikis is eligible for the deployment.
  3. The community is in charge of testing the features and improving the default settings provided:
    • La interfaz necesita ser traducida, o las traducciones deben ser revisadas. This is done both on translatewiki and at the local configuration page (Special:EditGrowthConfig). Esta página de orientación puede ayudarlo a comprender este trabajo de traducción.
    • Help links are checked on the local configuration page
    • Maintenance templates are checked on the local configuration page
  4. The test period runs on two weeks.
  5. If no major blocker is identified by the Growth team, then the features are deployed to all new accounts.

If the wiki contacts the Growth team, then the Growth team checks of the deployment is possible following the defined conditions. If so, the Growth team processes the same way for the deployment.

También proveemos alguna información útil tanto para tutores como para recién llegados, y estas páginas deben ser traducidas también.

Mentoring (optional)

How this works

Mentors are important: they help newcomers to make safe first steps on the wiki.

Each newcomer has a random mentor assigned to them automatically. There is no obligation for the newcomer to contact their mentor.

We recommend having one mentor for every 500 new accounts per month, i.e. if your wiki has 5,000 new accounts per month, you should have 10 mentors signed up in order to handle the volume of incoming questions. We advise to have a minimum of 3 mentors. Have more mentors than needed will decrease the effort.


The Homepage will pick names on the link found on Q14339834. This is our default configuration. You can also provide a link that is not listed on Wikidata.

How to format this page is a critical point! Please follow these indications:

  • The format of the page is a list of mentors, using a special format: [[User:Name]]|Description (add no links nor wikitext in it)
  • Protect that page, so that only experienced users can sign-up

Conditions to get the features

The Growth team has deployed the features to all Wikipedias. But any wiki can request to have these features, with the following conditions.

As detailed on our focus, we will work with the following wikis by order of priority:

  1. Our pilot Wikipedias – we address all the feedback they give us.
  2. Wikipedias – they get the features as they are, but we may consider suggestions of improvements from those wikis.
  3. All other Wikimedia projects – they get the features as they are, and the team will not have time to prioritize improvements specific to those wikis.

Bug reports will be prioritized by the Growth team.

Features will all be deployed (no substitutions, except if incompatible with an existing process), as "experiments". Experiments means that a portion of newcomers will receive the features (the treatment group), and a portion will not (the control group). By comparing these two groups, we will be able to measure the impact of the feature on newcomer retention. Some wikis may not have these groups, at the Growth team discretion.

The prerequisites to get the features are listed above.

Other MediaWiki wikis, not hosted by Wikimedia, can check on Extension:GrowthExperiments to get the features.


  1. 1.0 1.1 "Create an article" is not a task. In Suggested edits, there is a placeholder for this task, but the button is grey, inactive. Create an article is a very complicated task. It is actually the sum of all other maintenance tasks suggested. So encourage people to work on other tasks, before trying to create an article. However, we don't want to block newcomers from creating an article. This is why we provide a link to an help page to create a new article.

Before June 2021, this process was different. Please see the archived version for comparison. The creation of the new process is documented on Phabricator.
