Issues of newsletters should be subpages of the newsletter's main page
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Currently the issues of newsletters are just random wiki pages and have no relation with the newsletter main page. The optimal way would be to have the issues as subpages of main page of the newsletter.

This seems more a social convention thing rather than something that must be enforced. Requiring subpages might prevent users from doing some unique things, such as making a newsletter called "Daily weird wikipedia article", which once a day selects an arbitrary "weird" wikipedia article as its issue to forward to all its subscribers.

I think that the restriction makes sense, but we can leave the discussion for later, when we have more real users around, to check better whether there is a need for this.

From our meeting today:
<qgil> any objections to moving https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T104570 to "After deployment in Wikimedia"?
<tonythomas> yeah - that should be after deployment, yes
<qgil> tinajohnson ? the task is assigned to you

Tinaj1234 set Security to None.

Lowering priority, since this task is planned for after deployment to Wikimedia.

Actually, more than a year later I think @Bawolff was right. There are many valid use cases where pages could be collected without being subpages. I propose to decline this task.
