The task force of the usability team has experienced a significant growth lately. Our one-person-team was increased by the arrival of Trevor Parscal, who transferred from Brion Vibber’s team. Trevor brings in not only excellent technical knowledge and skills, but he has extensive experience working at a usability firm as an interface designer and developer. Trevor has very sharp eyes for details both in graphics and development.
A big Thank-You to those who are sharing the ideas and adding knowledge to the project page. Trevor had started evaluating editing extensions. The progress is posted here. If you know of good editing extensions or have one brewing on your hard drive, please let us know by adding it on the extension nomination page. We appreciate additional comments if extensions are compatible with MediaWiki 1.15alpha. The rating system will be available soon, so it will be fun to share that with you.
