Turn off the recurrent ContentTranslation beta feature invitation while creating a new article in Russian Wikipedia
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

After a discussion Russian Wikipedia users at https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Википедия:Форум/Предложения#Промежуточный_итог have decided to turn off the pop-up that promotes the ContentTranslation tool (which is effectively an advertisement of this tool) for users who haven’t opted in due to the excessive amount of low-quality translations generated by unexperienced users.

Please turn off the ContentTranslation pop-up for users who haven’t turned this beta-tool on.

Which one is relevant? ContentTralslation-Analytics, ContentTralslation-cxserver, ContentTralslation-Release6, ContentTralslation-Release7?

Maybe -Deployments? I'm not entirely sure.

Thank you, I wasn’t either =)

Isn't this for bug-wrangler to do in such cases of unsureness?

The anchor in the link does not work so I'm curious where exactly to find that discussion...

Spaces in the links should be replaced by underlines.

Anyway, there is new summary, https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%92%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%BF%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B8%D1%8F:%D0%A4%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%83%D0%BC/%D0%9F%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%BB%D0%BE%D0%B6%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D1%8F#.D0.98.D1.82.D0.BE.D0.B3 with the same result: advertising pop-up should be disabled for users, who don't enable this tool in preferences.

The main problem with this pop-up is that it is not a one-time thing, it's being shown to users again and again.

Users have been complaining about this nuisance also on fi-wiki. Has the issue been addressed in any way by now?
