Upcoming Changes[edit]

As some of you may know, the Usability Initiative has been running a beta over the past several months. Over 570,000 users across all the Wikimedia projects have tried the beta, with about 80% of users keeping the beta after trying. Approximately 7,500 Commons users have tried the beta with 86% of these users still using the beta. Some data about the beta is available here.

Given these encouraging results, we are planning on making the new usability features the default experience for Commons users during the second week of April. We wanted to make users of the most heavily used gadgets aware of this change. We appreciate that many gadgets rely on custom user scripts and site-specific JavaScript; Our changes are not especially related to multimedia usability, but we need your help to make sure the most used tools are compatible with the new interface. If you encounter issues using the beta, please share your feedback on the dedicated page.

A similar message has been placed on the Admin Noticeboard. Also, you may find more information about the Usability Initiative here.
