Allow for Visual Editor signing in the Projekt namespace on se.wikimedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Could Visual Editor please be configured to also allow signing in the Projekt namespace (100) on the Wikimedia Sverige chapter wiki (se.wikimedia.org)?

As per the local extension policy there is no need for community support on this wiki.

As CEO I agree with this change. Thank you

be configured to also allow signing

I'm not sure of what you mean by signing ? editing ? VE was not designed to be used in talk pages and other places where signatures are present. But since it's a Project NS I suppose that it's ok.

Actual InitialiseSettings.php:

// Namespaces for VisualEditor to be active in, as well as wgContentNamespaces
'wmgVisualEditorAvailableNamespaces' => [
	// Wikimedias
	'+sewikimedia' => [
		'Projekt' => true, // T62882
	],
]

This block @Framawiki is to enable the namespace.

I guess what they want is a signing icon.

Sorry for being unclear in the request. VisualEditor is already active in the namespace, what we wish is for the signing icon to be activated for this namespace.

Specifically we have a big table where volunteers sign for equipment but since the sign button is deactivated they are forced to use wikitext to add themselves to the list.
