Howdy @Timeshifter,
Thanks for the feedback. I want to give a little background to echo @Trizek-WMF on why we utilize Tech News as a primary communication method and why centralization is important to wrangle the work we do.

I think I understand the desire to show the user something when there's an error like this, but the idea of hard-coding a reference to Google in Mediawiki core strikes me as a little like dunking a delicious cookie in water (pretty gross).

A long delay in updating this task. My apologies. The most recent update was sending a short announcement to communities asking for feedback. This was sent today to Village Pumps.

I'm sorry, but the description isn't very helpful. I see the link you included, but I'm not sure what the expected behavior is. Could you please describe what the problem is with a little more clarity?

Just adding a note here. I've been monitoring the Talk page since the feature has been deployed and this is probably the single biggest frustration folks have.

CKoerner_WMF closed T194873: Wikimedia Hackathon Barcelona 2018 Volunteer Group: Photos as Resolved.

A big thanks to everyone who helped organize photos throughout the event and especially those who showed up to help take the group photos. I'm going to resolve this task, but please be sure to upload your photos to Commons!

CKoerner_WMF updated subscribers of T189456: GSoC 2018 Proposal: Pay off technical debt and increase usability of Navigation Popups gadget.

Leaving a note here of a demo @Nirzar @Jhernandez presented at the recent Hackathon using the APIs Page Previews to build navigation popups outside MediaWiki and jQuery. Might be insightful for this project.

Spread the word fellow photogs! The location for the group photo will be outside the auditorium, around the back. We'll direct people through the auditorium lobby to the location in the attached photo. @Mholloway, @Petr_Urbanec and I scouted the location this morning and we should all be able to fit. If you want to help take photos or help wrangle folks to the location, please arrive a little early, say 14:45 or so.

I wasn't able to make the earlier discussion. The plan is to have the group photo near the auditorium - same place as the opening session. This way we can get people to the showcase (also in the auditorium) at the end of the day. Was anyone able to find a suitable place near the auditorium? If not, I'm happy to trek out with some folks this afternoon if you'd like.

A few suggestions. Things are fine, I'm not hearing any large complaints. :)

  • More than one line for t-shirts
  • More than one line for lunch
  • Humans like words over numbers, give rooms names, even if made up for event.
  • Provide a quiet room (if there is one, I can't find it)
