[pawiki] Number of tasks with default filters is zero
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

pawiki (and zh-classical) doesn't have Easy filters tasks (Special:NewcomerTasksInfo page doesn't even list them).

  1. Create a new account and after Welcome Survey (entirely in English), a user is invited to visit Special:Homepage.
  2. Edit filters are not present, the number of tasks for default filters is 0, yet, "Get suggestions" button is active.

  1. If a user clicks on "Get suggestions" - "No suggested edits are available at this time" is displayed.

There should be either

  • different set of default filters if Easy tasks are missing
  • a better communication to a user that other tasks could be selected

@Tgr Are you able to provide a little more detail as to what needs discussion/analysis here, and by whom?

I would have said it needs prioritization, but I can't actually reproduce it. @Etonkovidova do you still see it happening? Maybe it was caused by a temporary search error (the UX brokenness around that is already captured in T287841: Newcomer tasks search error card has UX issues).

I see this occur on pa.wikipedia.org; because no tasks are available, we get "TypeError: can't access property "token", task is undefined".

Tasks are available, but not easy ones. Should we fallback on medium tasks?

What if, like on https://als.wikipedia.org, there is no task at all?
