[Tracker] Make contributions entry point easier to access
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

Currently the main translation entry point is hidden behind the "new contribution" button, which is hidden behind the "Contributions" link. We can make it easier to access.

This task has two parts

T92939: Improve contributions page entry point by adding 3 explicit ways to contribute
T92938: Add quick popover menu when hovering the contributions link

Here is a prototype of how contributions page would look like with the upfront actions + icons.
Hover over the actions to see what is it about :)

and here is the mockup for popover that will show up when you hover on the Contributions link.

The difference between the popover and the contributions page entry point is

  • The popover says "your contributions" which means your existing contributions. e.g. your entry point to CX dashboard
  • The contribution page says "New Contributions" so it's a way to add to your existing contribs but still has a way of going to CX dashboard
  • The icons are different because the popover are nouns because it's just a list and contribs page it's all verbs "create, upload, translate"

Great work, @Nirzar!
Some small considerations:

  • For the "start a draft" option, it is harder than it seems to point to a place which exists in all wikis and users can go to start a new page. the draft namespace or article requesting process is not available everywhere. The best I could found is this special page. I reflected that in the task description above (labelling the action as "new page").
  • Options are presented in a different order in contributions and the popover. Is there a reason for that or can we follow a consistent ordering?
  • Adding the graphic assets to this ticket would be useful for the developers.

Let me check with Jared on this, he was talking about draft namespace if I'm not mistaken

Options are presented in a different order in contributions and the popover. Is there a reason for that or can we follow a consistent ordering?

good catch, I'll fix it. it should be the same order.

  1. article contributions/start a draft
  2. media contributions/upload media
  3. translations/translate article

Adding the graphic assets to this ticket would be useful for the developers.

@santhosh, here are some icons that can be used as a placeholder while @Nirzar provides the final ones:
