Jan_Dittrich added a comment to T205022: Change Wikibase Font.

Not researched, more expert-y verdict: This should be: Adapt branding for custom installs, which usually entails choosing one or two colors (accent+ secondary), fonts and a logo. Wordpress themes often do this quite well, as do "off-label" software services.

Jan_Dittrich added a comment to T203553: Use default framed buttons in the RevisionSlider expand/collaps bar.

The "root" of the problem seems to be that the frameless buttons can not be toggled. If there is no particular reason against this it seems to be the most sustainable to add toggle mode to the frameless button class (or however OOUI calls "class"/"template"…). If that is not possible for us, I would leave it as it is.

Jan_Dittrich added a comment to T204916: Green Banner: Contrast too low.

From the point of accessibility I think the "Hoher Kontrast" is best. The "wenig Kontrast" I find problematic, since the light blue and green have a very similar brightness and offer mainly color/hue contrast rather than brightness.

@Tonina_Zhelyazkova_WMDE @kai.nissen
I guess that consistency to the non-contact-form should be there, so the color should also change on the contact form when the fields are on focus.
Rationale: 1) I see no point why it should not 2) If we keep it all constant, it is easier in the future to change widget code and design centrally since it prevents creation of solutions dependent on unusual, only-at-one-location behavior which is hard to factor out again.

I tried on a HD display as well on a smartphone (Moto G4) and on simulated screens in the firefox dev tools down to 280x280px and encountered no new issues due to screensize there.

Jan_Dittrich updated subscribers of T196885: Ask users for address data after donating.

Since @Tim_WMDE asked me about the blue framed box and it's content: For longer text e.g. "donation promise" via bank transfer, the text goes between the amount/payment method and the "Spendennummer" and enlarges the box by doing so.

To understand you correctly: Is "too wide" referring to the width of the left search/result column or the whole content-carrying part of the site.

Jan_Dittrich updated subscribers of T198893: Change the UI design according to the Wikimedia style guide.

@Verena @Cirdan : We have two choices here – one is going with the Wikimedia Design Style, the other is using the Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. Styleguide. The advantage of the former is that is is made to be used in a digital context, whereas the Wikimedia e.V. is stronger in print application. We could also try to mimic the campagins, but they change(d) style over time a bit and are also specific – maybe someone else wants to adapt the tool, too and then the campaign colors do not make sense – so I would suggest going with the Wikimedia Design Style

Jan_Dittrich added a comment to T199136: Improve display of long category names.

I would see the suggestions mainly as a way to understand how the tool works – it is highly unlikely that a suggestion matches a special interest of the user (particularly for long, detailed category names). Thus, it is not essential to have a full name. We could either discard too-long-categories or we shorten them with an ellipsis (max-width and text-overflow: ellipsis; ). Bonus, if the title attribute has the full name, still, since it appears on hover in browsers.

Jan_Dittrich added a comment to T199597: Consider visually ranking/labeling the tasks by level of complexity or time needed to complete.

I like the idea. I would not do this via color due to accessibility and style reasons (quickly looks "too confetti"). The most solid seems for me to just add "schwierig:" or "einfach:" in front of the badges – something like this:

or "Ungeprüfter Link (Einfach)"
