Replying v1.1: Create mockups
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Rationale

T235592's task description contains the overarching rationale for why this feature is prioritized.

This particular version – v1.1 – is intended to expand basic reply functionality to ensure it satisfies the needs of Senior Contributors to the extent feature can be deployed to all wikis and to encourage "productive" interactions.

User stories

As a contributor I can...

  • Adjust the size of the text input area
  • Opt-in/out of watching the talk page before posting my reply
  • Edit a reply I've posted without having to navigate to a separate view (T242562)
  • Pre-populate reply with @ mentions of person who authored the comment you are responding to

Details

  • Platform(s): desktop
  • Namespaces: all talk namespaces

"Done"

  • Mockups are created for the entire Replying to a specific comment... workflows for the platforms listed in the "Details" section above.

  1. Text input area: the place where contributors write their comments.

@iamjessklein I've updated the task description to include the decisions we arrived at in the OWC/Reply-Versioning.

This task should now be considered the "single source of truth" for what we will end up creating in v1.1.

@ppelberg re:requirements

Based on the feedback in T238177, I believe there are a few additional requirements for v1.1 - can you confirm? Here is the complete list:

  • enable preview boxes to expand
  • slow down the preview (ellipsis animation)
  • Customize my edit summary when replying on a talk page
  • Opt-in/out of watching the talk page before posting my reply
  • Edit a reply I've posted without having to navigate to a separate view [1]

Additionally, I'm wondering if there are any known gadgets that have conventions for following a conversation? Perhaps @AronManning knows? I'm asking because I believe that the only conventions for following an article or conversation is the star ⭐ icon for watching a page and I'd like to be intentional about creating a new affordance for this.

@iamjessklein, two things:

  1. Per our conversation today, the requirements for v1.1 are now listed in this task's description and
  2. Responses to the requirements posted in T236916#5817118 are below

Based on the feedback in T238177, I believe there are a few additional requirements for v1.1 - can you confirm? Here is the complete list...

  • enable preview boxes to expand

This is not a requirement for v1.1. In T238177#5813231, I was referring to adding a requirement where the text input area (the place where contributors will write their comments) expands/extends.

  • Thinking: let's wait to see if the size of the preview becomes an issue before making changes to how it is presented.
  • slow down the preview (ellipsis animation)

This is not a requirement for v1.1.

  • Thinking: let's see if the preview is in fact distracting before taking any action. I also wonder if the potential for distraction will be minimized if the preview is below the text input area.
  • Customize my edit summary when replying on a talk page

I no longer think this is a requirement for v1.1; I've removed it from the task description.

  • Thinking: the contents of the edit summary has not yet come up in any of our user tests.
  • Opt-in/out of watching the talk page before posting my reply

Correct

  • Edit a reply I've posted without having to navigate to a separate view [1]

Correct

The design for v1.1 will now happen in conjunction with v2.0 (T235593).
