A slight twist to your idea @egardner to try and get these filters feeling consistent (Besides the namespace filter for now)

I don't consider this to be a bug but rather a product decision. I've had success with with opening a new tab for search results in A/B experiments on other platforms and it is common practice in mainstream image search experiences, both Google and Bing open new tabs in their image search tabs.

Good catch @Etonkovidova. I prefer the star icon since we already are using the placeholder image icon, and the star helps differentiate this line of information. I don't think it's a huge deal/blocker/etc but would like to see it swapped.

Good point. I agree that the red link works better below any spelling correction messaging. I'll bring this ticket up in our next team/estimation meeting to keep it moving, thanks!
Adding a link in the same layout and style makes sense to me!
Thanks @AntiCompositeNumber, this seems like an important addition to Media Search.
Thanks for additional info!

@Etonkovidova Good question! I had incorrectly assumed that these assessments would be for images and video only but if there are other file types receiving these assessments, it can't hurt to show the filter on all of the tabs. I don't think it's a blocker but something to consider when we have the time to update.

Chatted with a few of you about this...some ideas:

After chatting with the team, we decided on starting with the least complex solution to implement as we currently have limited time resources to dedicate to this. We hope to gain more insight on how this filter is being used before investing more time.

@AnneT Having the namespace filter use the same hover state (gray background) makes sense to me!

@ChristianFerrer All good points, thanks. Going to bring this ticket up in an upcoming team meeting and see what parts of this we can accomplish and when. Here are some mockups of your ideas:
Mar 24 2021
@Jseddon brought to my attention that now that we have the "Help" link in the top right, that this design doesn't quite work. A few points I mentioned from our Slack thread
That all makes sense to me. So let's just keep option 1 for now and we can think on any improvements to the filter language and the visible cue issue once we can use it in for production for awhile!
One other thing that I overlooked when we switched this to a dialog is how to represent the text of this action next to the other filters. A few thoughts there:
I've mostly been thinking that the X in dialogs equals a "Cancel" button but after thinking about it "Cancel" does feel like it more explicitly implies that we will not be saving any choices.

@ChristianFerrer Thanks for your input, that could work, still figuring out how they would work together and to not make the "Advanced" link appear to be part of the select options while having an expected interaction once clicked on.
Mar 16 2021
Thanks for your detailed work on this @Etonkovidova!
Mar 15 2021
Hello @Volker_E! Not sure I'm totally following what we need here.
This works for me! Thanks everyone

Really like this idea and could see it be especially useful while searching for image to place in an article.

@Jseddon This looks great!

Thanks @matthiasmullie, that makes sense.
Thanks for getting this started @nettrom_WMF!
@egardner That seems reasonable to me, thanks!
Feb 25 2021
@Jseddon Sounds good to me, thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks for the heads up @AnneT!
@Jseddon Yup, not bold anymore. Good catch!

The design team just released a very rough v1 dialog component: https://design.wikimedia.org/style-guide/components/dialogs.html
Feb 23 2021
I think its fine to have it on all the tabs to make this consistent
Yeah, I wondered that when I took a look at this @AnneT, thanks for bringing that up.
Feb 22 2021
So the de-facto default is "All"?
Yup! Default is all the namespaces that apply to the Pages & Categories tab
Good points @Keegan, thanks for the input!
@Jseddon For now we just want to adjust "EndofResults"
@Jseddon Tested out removing the 16px from the search results and that seems like it does the job nicely!
Feb 19 2021
This seems fine to me!

Two ideas for this ticket so far:
Per our meeting yesterday, I updated the namespace selector filter dialogs to map a little closer to the special:search experience. Two questions: Do you think that we need that "Default" selection choice? I'm not sure I have enough context to know what to do there. And should we support the "Remember selection for future searches" checkbox, is that a lot of work?

Dropped the above screenshot into Slack and got some good feedback
4 months later I respond...
Works for me!
Feb 12 2021
Seems to be a good improvement!

Thanks for the explanation @matthiasmullie, sounds like we should avoid attempting to add in the rewrite feature at the moment.
@egardner This makes sense, getting rewrites 100% right would obviously be a good thing but that sounds very tricky as you've explained. I also don't think rewrites are a blocker for us making Media Search the default, more of a "really nice to have".

Added a screenshot to the description, the one thing I think we could also update is adding a "header" to the top section of preferences since everything else has one and it felt a bit odd. I put "General" in there but I imagine we could think of something more specific.
Feb 5 2021
Starting to try out some options here for where the namespace goes. I think the text snippet having some space in between the title and the metadata should work fine but we should limit how long that line can be so it's still legible. Adding any additional metadata, like a date can fit in the current metadata line as well.
Feb 3 2021
Option 1 works for me! If adding the hover state starts to get annoying, just adjusting the spacing resolves the majority of issue with this.
Feb 1 2021
I don't think we need this feature at this time. We have a small amount of filters and the use case of someone using enough of them at one time to really need this is limited. We revisit this in the future.
Jan 29 2021
Thanks for the feedback Anne! Also chatted with Eric who brought up some similar concerns.
Jan 27 2021
One idea for this is to create two top level radio buttons and allow users to switch to custom and select any checkboxes they want.
Chatted with @AnneT about this and we are going to leave the result count at the end of filters to keep it more similar to desktop, even if it's well hidden and seen infrequently.
Jan 26 2021
@egardner On mobile web, I don't think it's worth creating a whole new line and pushing the results even farther down just to add this feature, the top section is already getting pretty tall. Any other strategy would include fixed elements / major rearrangements which also doesn't seem worth it.

Good points Matthias, thanks for your input! We chatted about this in our team Slack group, where I showed a couple different designs and copy options and we decided that moving forward with a simpler and more subtle design is the right path forward for now.
