Grants talk:IdeaLab/Make Wikipedia pretty!
I think Wikimedia might already be working on this problem. They hired a new designer who made this back in 2014: https://trello-attachments.s3.amazonaws.com/51acdf853e84334c1b0005f8/52f9c6debcbc380178a3f8a3/986b8f8da869a487feecb36d5c95439c/Tangram_motion.m4v. If we like it, we should push Wikimedia to take it out of their "freezer" section of their workflow and maybe more into https://trello.com/b/EXtVTJxJ/mediawiki-ui Frances Soong (talk) 16:52, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
The best thing about Wikipedia is that it has not changed. Whenever things change people complain look at Facebook or Windows 8 for example.

Wikipedia redesign process
Hi Merry Kay. Thanks for submitting your idea! Giving Wikipedia a new look that is more interesting to women is definitely an interesting idea. Have you looked at the Wikipedia page on unsolicited redesigns? It has a lot of good information on the pros/cons of redesigns and tips for making a redesign as successful as possible. Once you've checked out the page, I'd love to know how you would refine and update your proposal. Please let me know if you have questions. Cheers, Alex Wang (WMF) (talk) 22:11, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
