[Session] Which moderator tools need developer attention? Help the WMF prioritise!
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

  • Title of session (the more detailed, the better!): Help decide the WMF Moderator Tools team's priorities
  • Session description:

We want to know which patrolling and administrative tools you think the Moderator-Tools-Team should focus its efforts on improving! Do you find a particular patrolling workflow frustrating? Get tired of reviewing the same endless backlog? Encounter bugs in a critical process? Constantly find yourself filing patches for the same piece of software? Tell us about it!

As part of our work objectives for next year, our team is looking to work on improvements and bug fixes to the moderator tooling which currently exists on Wikimedia projects. But there are a lot of tools! We need your help to identify the ones most in need of developer attention so that we can have the best impact on the tools that need it the most.

Notes

Want to prioritize working on tools and software that haven't been worked on in a while or have no active maintainer, are important to multiple wikis, are content (rather than user), moderation tools, etc.

<Workshop>
High-impact tools (if these tools disappear, people would be UPSET)
Huggle
Twinkle (a lot of people have their own version, so it's tricky to follow up and maintain, advanced)
SW Viewer
GUC
LiftWing
SPI Helper
Flagged Rev

Smallwiki viewer can be helpful but maintained by volunteers.
