Johan added a comment to T177076: Keep the community informed about book PDF unavailability.

Met with Olga to discuss next steps. We've deployed the new renderer, which seems to be working. We'll take a look at the feedback, but honestly, we don't have that much resources we can assign to this. Pediapress are working on the books. In general, there won't be much we can say. We'll write up a note, but generally phase this out.

OK. We could list a number of categories if we wanted, I suppose, to diminish risks; they'd not cover everything but it'd be something to help avoid serving an execution to someone who hadn't been specifically looking for that kind of material as they're helping out on their commute to work.

(This is probably cultural, but personally I'd be more concerned about without warning people asking them to caption violence/mutilations/executions than e.g. nudity, as a worst case scenario.)

Yes, it had crossed my mind. And I'm not overjoyed at the idea of (worst case scenario) showing nudes to a kid or something. So let's please update the API as soon as the NSFW scoring system is online, but meanwhile I think it's an acceptable risk - especially since we are going to prioritise images that are associated with articles, which are not likely to be NSFW. (I mean, there's a nonzero chance, but it is lower than if we just showed a random image from a pool of literally everything.)

So I see no reason not to get rid of the waiting period and observe what happens, but just so we're aware of it: from a vandal-fighting perspective, we'd need to keep this in mind long-term and keep track of what's happening here and remember that the waiting period is an option, in case the app becomes more popular (especially for editing) or vandals find it a convenient way to vandalise things.

I mean, I do really see the point in not having someone be invited an hour after they started editing if the only reason is that their edits haven't been reverted yet, but that seems like it'd be necessary mainly if it's actually a problem, not just theoretically.

I think the main problem here would be that you're adding a caption we're not showing in the article unless you tap the image, which could be potentially confusing, unless I'm misunderstanding something. On the other hand, there's a value in surfacing the editing capabilities in the app. I have no strong opinion either way.

I like that idea a lot in principle; but it's important to bear in mind here that the image captions shown in-article are entirely local to the article itself and stored in the article wikitext, and have nothing to do with the Commons captions (structured or otherwise).

Johan added a comment to T209997: Create a new API endpoint which returns Commons images in need of a caption or caption translation.

Have you considered strategies for identifying candidates for caption addition/translation based on their usage in Wikipedia articles of interest, rather than attempting to identify random image candidates directly from Commons based on their captions and work back to Wikipedia articles? One idea that comes to mind is that we could populate caption addition/translation suggestions by querying caption info for articles the user visits as the user browses. Another idea is that we could do something like identify candidates used in (random members of) the top 100 or 1000 articles for a target wiki.

Keeping the community informed has basically been relaying the information that the PDF renderer has been "a few weeks away" (which it consistently has been to best of our knowledge) which has always turned out to be another few weeks. Hopefully this will soon be done, for single articles.
