Make it possible to disable ContentTranslation popup notice permanently
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I don't know is it intentional, but every time when you log in to Wikipedia and click some red links you'll get the popup notice about translating the article by using the ContentTranslation beta feature. Even if you click "no thanks" you will get the same popup again when you log out and clean your browser cache. I tried this with the Firefox's "private browsing window" (so no need to clean cache).

It's reported twice on the Finnish Wikipedia, but I don't know does they actually clean their cache after every logout, but if you click "no thanks" it should also mean "no thanks, IMO.

Could be done similarly to VisualEditor's welcome screen, which is implemented with preferences, IIRC.

When the invite was created there was no support for Global preferences. This entry point has been useful for people to discover the tool, which provides a useful alternative to create content (resulting in lower deletion ratios). So we still plan to keep the invite, but improving it. We have plans to update the current invite (T216032) to make it less prominent and more targeted to the interested users. I'll merge the current ticket with this one.
