I’m happy to let you know that Media Viewer has just deployed on our first pilot sites
1. First Pilots
We just released Media Viewer enabled by default on Catalan, Hungarian and Korean
Wikipedias, as well as English Wikivoyage. Next Thursday, we plan to deploy to more pilot
sites: Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hebrew, Polish, Romanian, Thai, Slovak, and Vietnamese.
Try it out for yourself on the Hungarian Wikipedia:
2. First Metrics
, we jumped from 100 image views per day to 1k/day, about a 10 x increase.
And on Commons it was much higher, due to the ‘View Expanded’ button: from 240 image views
per day to 24k/day yesterday — that’s a 100 x increase ! You can track the adoption of
this tool on these first metrics dashboards.
3. Share your feedback
