Hi all,

As you might have noticed, especially if you're an English Wikipedian, the
 Editor Engagement Experiments team has been working on redesigning the
user experience of account creation, A/B testing new designs and
functionality for the past couple months.

We finished our final A/B test last week,[1] and we're now moving on to
make the features which tested well permanent.[2] In order to make sure
that the experience of signup and login are consistent, we also plan to
make some changes to the design of login.[3]

In order to answer any questions people might have and gather feedback,
we're holding the first office hours about our redesign work. We also plan
to enable the test version of the new account creation experience at 100%
(rather than 50/50, as previously) so that people can give it a try.

When: Saturday December 1, 2012. 19:00-20:00 UTC. Time conversion links
etc. are on Meta.[4]
