- “My contributions“ lists all edits that have been made in the app (not only the ones via “Editor tasks“). The bigger picture here is that “Editor tasks“ will become a home of all sorts of edits within the app (Slide 27 in Android Edit Action Feed - Diary Study)
- All types of contributions are expanded in the current designs
- Functionality of “My contributions“ is limited in V1. The idea for the future is to incorporate a way to keep track of all edits that have been made, e.g. listing all articles that have been edited by the user. In the course of that we’d then also need to think about a way to indicate *what type* of edit’s been made by the user.

To my knowledge, we’re going to start with “Added title descriptions“ and “Translated title descriptions“. Please correct me if I’m wrong @Charlotte. I’m going to review the “My contributions“ concept/visuals hopefully by the end of the week and will post updates here.
@Charlotte @schoenbaechler From our latest check-in with Reading Infrastructure, it will not be feasible to differentiate between "added descriptions" and "translated descriptions" for this first iteration of the endpoint. (It will require quite a bit more logic and careful thinking about how to do it properly). It will still differentiate between different languages of the edits, but everything will have to be under a single bucket of general "contributions" for now. Can we update the design to reflect this?
To add a little color: there's no concept of "translating a description" in MediaWiki or Wikibase; it's just setting a description on an item in all cases. So that's not a distinction I anticipated you'd want the counter extension to draw.
Since it's not a concept intrinsic to the wiki software, what we'd need in order to bucket a description edit as an "addition" vs. a "translation" is some additional signal of intent from the app, which could be a property of either the wiki revision (e.g., a specific edit summary string) or the HTTP request (e.g., a custom header).
Not really happy about the screen’s current state though, its usefulness was limited, now it became even more obsolete. We definitely need to have discussion on how to add value to it in upcoming releases.
Visually it looks pretty good to me on 2.7.276-alpha-2019-04-04
However, I did notice that it only counts the edits I've made since installing the app. I've made many edits via this account, but I'm not sure if they should reflect on the count. I'm not sure if this is by design. @cmadeo what do you think?
