The Growth team is working on new tools that would help communities to welcome newcomers and grow:

  • Newcomer tasks: a feed of task suggestions that help newcomers learn to edit. Newcomers have been making productive edits through this feed!
  • Newcomer homepage: a special page that hosts the "newcomer tasks" and is a good place for a newcomer to get started.
  • Help panel: a platform to provide resources to newcomers while they are editing.

All this requires existing community involvement (have some mentors, get maintenance templates ready) but it worth the case!

What will attendees take away from this session?

Discover the new tools, know their benefits and how to implement the tools.
