  • OwenBlackerXHTML, CSS, Wikimarkup. I'm particularly interested in removing all text (I have a strong astygmatism). Anyone bothered by adjacent links might be interested in {{,}} (that is: the template "comma", which inserts a superscript comma between adjacent citation links. 18:41, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
  • OptimistBen (talk) 22:33, 18 April 2008 (UTC) Not exactly a programmer, but I'll try to give feedback and maybe do some minor programming someday.
  • FlyingToaster
  • Sergey Chernyshevtalk 25 February 2009 - interested in front-end web performance optimization for MediaWiki and Wikipedia; useful UI and user experience extensions like OpenID, Widgets (mine), Header Tabs (mine), data-centric extensions like Semantic MediaWiki/Forms/Formats.
  • B C Jordan -- student new to UI design, interested in simpler editing UI
  • PretzelsTalk! 17:31, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • User:Anime Addict AA - mainly concerned about usability issues, especially the way-too-big pages that some editors refuse to split into more, because of notability issues (I dare to say they invent), or even if the split is made, it's just used as an excuse to AfD the split article and "artificially" reduce the main article's size; other things that I find valid above is the problem about new users, that they are hardly taught and that jargon on Wikipedia is most of the time more important than the actual facts and contents of the articles. 18:02, 13 October 2009 (UTC)
  • User:Barney Lerten -- I too think Wikipedia would grow hugely in quantity and quality of pages/info if the special characters were hidden from the vast majority of users and the tools were adapted to make it possible to do most general-purpose things with a mouse click or general word-processing style. The article body should default in edit mode to showing in true WYSIWYG fashion, with a back-page showing the raw Wiki code for those in need/so inclined. THAT would be revolutionary, a true Wikipedia 2.0 'for the people' and while the chances for abuse also would jump, I think that would be drowned out in the dramatic increase in material - and folks' willingness to keep the material fresh and accurate (and fair)!
  • Tarheel95-- I think I can combine my expertise with outlines with this project!! I'd love to help out!
  • Dodoïste (talk) 21:09, 12 September 2010 (UTC) - Especially to work on navigation architecture, menus, breadcrumb and seven plus or minus two.
  • SMcCandlish Talk⇒ ʕ(Õلō Contribs. – I am all about usability. Getting proper full HTML support in MediaWiki has been a years-long goal of mine (with some progress actually made against initial developer reluctance to add support for things like <dfn> and <kbd>), along with undoing bad practices on Wikipedia that violate the letter or spirit of the HTML, XMTML or other specs, commonly accepted usability wisdom, or known accessibility maxims.
  • EdokterTalk -- Clean and simple code is my motto, without forgetting functionality. I am fairly knowledgable on HTML and CSS, and I keep an eye on several templates and site-wide CSS files. EdokterTalk 01:21, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
  • --Amadscientist (talk) 20:14, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • User:Nicereddy - User interface/User experience enthusiast. Enjoys nav boxes, collapsible sections (for unimportant/navigational parts), unified design, timelines. Dislikes gradients, ugly wikicode.
