Wikimedia Foundation website/2017-2018 update/Development stage
The development stage involves writing the preliminary content for the site, making sure all of the information is accurate, and designing it to reach external audiences.
Melody Kramer will be serving as the editorial lead for the process. In that role, she will be working closely with an external content designer and with subject matter experts identified from across the organization.
What is being developed
Where content will be located
The new Wikimedia Foundation website will have a more focused scope than the current site. As a result, not everything currently on the Wikimedia Foundation website will be a part of the new website. This table provides a basic overview of where content will be located when the new site launches. Pages currently on the site will be categorized accordingly and then relocated or repurposed as necessary.
