Thank you for these new forms. We really need it!
Unfortunately, this announcement on French Wikipedia was not really
appreciated. :-( You have posted in English, and the form is still in
English. Badly, we have a lot of French language defenders, who totally
dislike English posts. This is not cool at all, and I'm deeply sorry of
All the translation has been updated on Translatewiki. I hope you will
change the Enghish words to the French ones on the forms soon ! :-)
Thanks again for your work !
It's okay. I totally understand. I'll just post at the Anglophone Bistro
next time, if I don't have a translated message. :)
The translations are not yet complete, which is why some messages are in
English. I gave a link to the translatewiki list for French, and it will
get fixed before we roll it out to frwiki as the default.
We should let Oliv (the latest post) know that if French Wikipedia already
has pages for help about logging in etc. you are of course encouraged to
redirect or change the links in the login page to point there.

This is a (couple hours late) notice about what Editor Engagement
Experiments deployed today.
First up: after weeks of controlled testing and lots of follow up work,
our redesigns of account creation and login are available for testing on
all Wikimedia projects. Per our blog post, we're doing this on an opt-in
basis for about a week, to ensure localizations have time to be done
correctly and that there are no critical bugs undiscovered. After that,
we'll enable the new forms as defaults.
Along with this, we deployed a change to the CAPTCHA extension used
across Wikimedia projects to add a refresh button, whether you're viewing
the CAPTCHA on login, account creation, or the edit window. Hopefully this
will lessen frustrations for new or anonymous editors when trying to fill
out one of our security checks.
If you want to talk further about the login and account creation updates,
I've posted to the Village Pumps of the top ten Wikipedias, and will
shortly to the English version of the other sister projects. We're also
holding an IRC office hours on Saturday, at 18:00 UTC, to discuss these
