The about page has a typo: Phabircator in stead of Phabricator. Ad Huikeshoven (talk) 15:53, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Ad. I fixed it. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 17:09, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Search bar[edit]

Suggestion: On https://diff.wikimedia.org/, the search bar is towards the end of the page, which doesn't give a smooth experience. Generally search is at the top of a page, so that users can quickly search and get to wherever they want to on a website. For a while, I thought there was no search feature at all, and no way to reach the post I wanted to, however, I later used Google Search. It would better if it is at the top. --KCVelaga (talk) 07:05, 29 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks @KCVelaga: for the feedback. I'll past along to the design folks to consider. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 15:16, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
Great, thank you. KCVelaga (talk) 19:18, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Motivation?[edit]

What was wrong with the previous three platforms? Or is it more about different content scope and editorial process? Pelagic (talk) 21:55, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Hey @Pelagic: I don't think anything was wrong with the previous platforms, just things have changed over time. The Wikimedia Blog became more of a external-facing publication and then was stopped all together. Wikimedia Space was a prototype blog and forum, and was shut down. Diff is a continuation of both, with lessons learned and adapted to community needs in the present time. So like you said, more about content scope and editorial process – and the ability for us to support! The move of my team from Community Relations to Communications helped make an argument for, and bolster the support needed, to take on a community blog with an open editorial process.

Notifications?[edit]

I didn't find a possibility to get notifications when new posts are published. Personnaly I would like to get an email once a week. --Hadi (talk) 16:07, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Hello Hadi. I too want to have notifications on Diff. We're working on a solution that meets our legal and security needs and I hope to have an update for you in the near future. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 21:40, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Question about Diff[edit]

At [1] it states that there are "editors," which can approve posts and are from the Wikimedia community. I don't see this mentioned anywhere else on Diff though. Is this still being developed? Sam-2727 (talk) 00:25, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
