The delay was totally correct, no need for apologies for it. Actually, I think you took this subject seriously and managed to discuss it quite fast, and I want to thank you for that.

We are reviewing this discussion, though it is unlikely we will have a well considered response inside of 24 hours.

Vote done, decision accepted by the community. To deploy, if possible for the 22th, anniversary of French Wiktionary.

Sorry, but I just have to point out (as a "lurker" with no power to make or implement any decisions here):
There's absolutely nothing preventing every single member of the frwiktionary community from enabling the Timeless skin in their own Preferences. You can even encourage this by adding instructions on how to do it to "welcome" messages for new users and to various help pages, etc., and whatever other on-wiki solutions you want to try. It just looks like you're not going to be able to "force" this as a default applied automatically to everyone looking at the wiki. C'est la vie.....
I know that's frustrating, but it's not like you're being prevented from using the skin at all. Anyone who wants to, can use the skin on the wiki (as long as it's working).
That could be a good move to see if the skin works on a whole project, if there is a solid plan to measure impact.

The vote is going well. Almost 30 votes, that's quite a lot for our small community. More than any previous votes.

I've just been avoiding this entire thing because it scares me (sorry), but if we do such a change, we do probably want to do it across all (normal) projects, and have a consensus that it's time to change the overall identity of the lot, since visual identity is a huge thing.
Even if the concerns are largely functional (such as that Vector just doesn't serve the needs of a project), it would still need to be across the entire project (all languages) to make sense, and even then probably require some wider... establishing that this is a thing we now do these days. Though I suppose if all languages of a project agreed it was needed, maybe that would be enough to get all the meta people on board... but we'd have to see it happen to really be sure. It'd at very least establish that we definitely need *some* sort of change, though.
Not sure I'd say it's the base identity of Wiktionary/Wikipedia, but I can understand concerns about it being different between different language wikis of the same project to some extent.

It could be through a dedicated app or included in the research options, I don't know which solution is preferable. As it is very crosswiki, it may be a separate app. As I am not familiar with the way this kind of technology work, I am afraid I can't be more specific.

The Wiktionary communities could be convinced to switch to 1-lexeme-per-page model in order to integrate better with Wikidata and the app.

I support the idea of experimenting a separate Wikibase instance for Wiktionaries texts.

Discussions on Wiktionaries could be quite straighforward, communities are small and technical issues are usually solved by everyone following a trusted colleague saying it's good. Well, and a development dedicated to Wiktionaries by your team can't be bad.

Great job here! I am keeping an eye on your project and I am very please to see it going out! As part as the writers of French Wiktionary Actualités, the monthly journal for lexico-lovers, I'll be please to write something about this tool in August edition (to be out in September 1st). Or maybe Pamputt will write it :)
It will be here: https://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionnaire:Actualités/Brouillon
It is written in French first and then translated to English. At some point, I'll be happy to ping you to proof-read our article. Let us know the best timing for you to have a press announcement!

So if I understand correctly, there's not much we can do before the Wiktionaries agree on having a common template in their titles?

Thanks a lot.

It is different than Watchlist because it will not be ordered chronologically and will not be based on changes. Once a user pick a word for this log sheet, it can be organized manually in dot lists to help memorization. It is not aimed to help people to go back later to improve the content or to track changes but as a list of word to remember.

It seems my rational was not clear. This request is to put back the link "wikicode editor" for not registered users in French Wiktionary. We do not ask for Visual Editor to be remove, but only to display two buttons instead of one. Please, have a try, go to Wiktionary and try to modify a page with VisualEditor: it's not efficient. This feature is not adapted to this project. That's pretty easy to get.

@Noe There are a lot of dictionaries in Wikisource, but most of them are "scan-only". By "tagging", you mean creating an index to entries, so you can quickly navigate to the scanned page?

IMO that is rather a usecase for https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Wiktionary and https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Wikidata...

I didn't realized I changed the direction of this idea. It was already clear when it was proposed to the Community Wishlist Survey in 2016: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2016_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Categories/Wiktionary#CW2016-R097

There is also a consensus in French Wiktionary to invite IABot too :)

We recently made an editathon and the absence of "edit with wikicode" is still a problem. VisualEditor is still useless for Wiktionary, except to add pictures. For any other aspects, VE doesn't provide any help. Can you please add the link for IP?
