Description

Opening bug to get a link to 'Want to edit this page?' added to the One Mozilla footer.  

Purpose:

This would be a channel to introduce people who are interested in contributing to our websites to steps to how to get started and open bugs that they could work on.

Design:

This has been included in earlier designs for the new site.  See the link under the last modified information at:

http://davidwboswell.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/desktop-mockup-v3_1.png

Content:

When this is clicked, this can bring up a lightbox with the content on the following page:

https://etherpad.mozilla.org/edit-this-page

The lightbox would also include an instance of the Get Involved page form.

I've been thinking about Mike's comment that 'edit this page' sounds more like an invitation to change the text on the page than to work on the code of the page and also Jeff's thought that a similar link for localization opportunities (like 'would you like to translate this page?') would be good to have.

Considering this, I suggest generalizing this to one link that can cover any type of contribution opportunity related to a web page (coding, designing, writing, translating).

We could do this by having one 'Make this page better' link in the footer that could bring up a page that talks about how people can contribute to Mozilla's sites in general with links to specific areas, like the l10n wiki page, for people to learn more.

Considering that, I've added some new text on this etherpad:

https://etherpad.mozilla.org/edit-this-page

CC'ing Matej for his thoughts on the link wording and wording for content that comes up (also to let him know this could be a channel for reaching out to people interested in design and writing contributions).

I'm concerned that "Make this page better" sounds like we're saying there's something wrong with it. I agree that "edit" might not be exactly right either, so here are a few other options:

Help us with this page.

Contribute to this page.

Work on this page.

Help build pages like this one.

Get involved with Mozilla websites.

I've also made some edits to the etherpad. I'll update the headline there once we land on something here.

I like "Contribute to this page", for the reasons Matej mentioned in comment #2, and because it somewhat ties in to our use of 'contribute' as a way to get involved with Mozilla in other contexts (ex. mozilla.org/contribute).

'Contribute to this page' sounds great to me.  Thanks for the word polishing Matej :)

Great! Made the appropriate changes to the etherpad as well.
Steven, 
Copy is done. Can you take a look at the requirements here and let us know if you have everything you need for implementation? My only concern is lack of designs. It's a simple lightbox but may need some mockups and graphics.

I wonder if just linking to a new page would make sense here. I don't see anything in the text that references "this page".

I don't have a strong preference between a lightbox and linking to a new page.

Steven, if going with a page makes the most sense, how about this for the location:

mozilla.org/contribute/page

Does making this a page vs. a lightbox help with implementing this without a design?

Thanks, I was wondering what URL to use.

Should - I'll drop in this content and we'll see how it looks.

CC'ign jlongster here for help with the form. James, we're going to be duplicating the content/behaviour of the form from the /contribute/ page on this /contribute/

James, I've got the basic page setup here: https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/pull/75

The style of the page looks good to me on dev.  One small thing -- this sentence is showing up twice: "Mozilla websites are run as open projects that you can help us build and edit."
Steven, looks like the tweaks to the styles broke the form on this page: http://www-dev.allizom.org/b/en-US/contribute/

I just submitted a pull request to update the page content to point to the correct location for web development contribution opportunities.  It had been pointing to non-web coding opportunities.

This pull request looks to have a lot of unrelated changes in it. Is this the change you had in mind? https://github.com/davidwboswell/bedrock/commit/0cb855c35b3e7b65f35d54430fc2944933cf1480

Steven, yes, I just wanted to make that one simple text change.  I guess I accidentally included other stuff in my pull request.
