Hello again! For anyone else reading this thread, I'm Ed from the Foundation’s blog team. First, please let me reassure you that the blog’s move to wikimediafoundation.org does not mean we are changing the existing editorial strategy. We are not planning to change or reduce the number of community-focused or authored posts that are published on the Wikimedia blog. Publishing community-authored and related blog posts is a key part of our editorial guidelines, which is why we have extensive Meta-Wiki documentation on how to submit a post.[1]

@Volker_E I think we could survive without it being translated, especially if doing so would require using up a large amount of staff (read: your!) time. It's not ideal, of course, but almost all of the content on the blog is English-only, and even WMDE's banner is only in German.

@Varnent Mel and I chatted quick—we're fine with either approach as long as it works on a technical level. I'm personally a little worried about the link to the home page from the logo in the top left, but that could be disabled in the current blog's code as part of this process. @Tbayer do you have an idea of the amount of work that would be required to add a banner like WMDE's?

@leila Mel's out until next week, so I'll jump in quick for at least a preliminary response! That preliminary plan sounds good. It could be interesting to draw contrasts between English and other languages, but we'll have to see what can be drawn from the data. I suspect Mel and I might have ideas on how best to present this information when you have some of that early analysis—would you want to do a meeting after Wikimania to discuss it? (We'll be pretty busy in the run up to Wikimania as well, so it might be best to plan to publish after it.)

Hey @Aklapper and @Dzahn, I asked for an email because I don't follow my Phabricator notifications on a daily basis. The Google Doc does not supplant Meta in any way; we've used it as an in-Foundation template for several months now. They're easier for us to keep track of, and many staffers are more comfortable writing up a blog post in a word processor rather than on-wiki.

It looks like this is fixed. The Hindi-post problem was because someone inputted the language incorrectly into WordPress.

@BBlack we're working on it now as part of a larger effort to tweak the blog's theme.

Sounds good to me, @CKoerner_WMF, but please do remember that we can have multiple blog posts on the team's work. Scope creep can lessen interest in individual posts. :-)

Thanks, @CKoerner_WMF. I'm always around on Hangouts if you need to bounce ideas off someone or have any questions.

@MelodyKramer that's a newer thing that I've been trialing on my own. If memory serves, Johan, I, and others had a meeting and discussed using the digest for that purpose; we decided against it. Then I changed my mind. :-)

Great! Mel's comments above then are perfect. I think you'll want to use a framework that demonstrates how these changes will help community members, many of which will not be familiar with technical news or possibly even the existence of Phabricator.

This is not something we are going to be able to address at the moment, although I agree that this is incredibly suboptimal for old posts. I'm more than happy to fix posts on an individual basis at anyone's request.

@Krenair @yuvipanda is this still an issue?

Hi all! Thanks for pinging me on this. Mel has some great points above, and all I'd add is the intended audience for your post—do you want a public, Wikimedian, or Phabricator-familiar audience?
