E.g. mw-indicator-spoken-icon

A few things we talked about

  • Are we blacklisting all indicators? How? By classname (mw-indicator-*)?
    • Or are we just swapping those two?
  • Are the vector designs for those two in the description done?
  • Where does the pointage come from? (it has a 5)

Open questions

  1. what are all the indicators in use?
  2. extension adding indicators?
  3. hide all indicators and only show 2 indicators as strategy?
  4. what happens when the title is long
  5. can we get localized string "semi-protected" "featured"

Are we blacklisting all indicators? How? By classname (mw-indicator-*)?

We are hiding them in print styles. In Minerva we do not render them. In Vector they are rendered.

Where does the pointage come from? (it has a 5)

Story points are inherited when you create a subtask. :)

what are all the indicators in use?

I'm not sure if they are audited. Looks like any number of arbitrary indicators can be created. contains featured article indicator. seems to be the place where it's called. Looking at the "See also" heading of that page will showyou an idea of which indicators exist.

extension adding indicators?

Not sure what this means. They are provided by core. Any skin can control what to do with them.

hide all indicators and only show 2 indicators as strategy?

I think you are going to struggle here to know which 2 to show. All indicators are created equally.

can we get localized string "semi-protected" "featured"

Indicators are content - so will only be localised per page. A tooltip is provided "This is a featured article. Click here for more information." but nothing short which is what I think you are asking for.

From Discussion with @TheDJ @Jan_Dittrich around the usefulness of indicators at wikimania 2017

  • There doesn't seem to be a strong usecase for having these indicators in print
  • The value of having it vs the effort of adding them is not justified

Changing the status to Stalled until further discussion/requests

@bmansurov, @ovasileva can we remove this as a blocker on T169738?

This is not a blocker of T169738, is it? If it is, then yes, we can remove it.

@Niedzielski subtasks are not blockers afaik

I can confirm this is not a blocker

Lowering priority as this hasn't been discussed since August 2017

We show indicators by default on print styles

This is not true.

To clarify the current position - indicators are hidden in print mode via a CSS rule in mediawiki core that lives in src/mediawiki.legacy/commonPrint.css

I'm thus declining given it doesn't seem to be a priority.
