Jdforrester (WMF)

I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the VisualEditor Team (now called the Editing-team). I'm now the Lead Product Manager for the Contributors-Team.

We don't do REL1_28 releases any more, do we? 1_27 for the next year, 1_29 for the next couple of months, and 1_30 'til the end of the calendar year. So maybe the jobs aren't properly configured for it?

We tried it out back in 2013 (?) and people assumed it would delete the link and anchor, not just the link, so we moved to the clear icon which was the same as used by Google Docs and Apple Pages at the time, IIRC. User testing it again would be a good idea before making changes here.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T190570: Only show edit summary remaining character countdown for last 99 characters.

I rather like Twitter's approach – a small doughnut chart in blue without numbers until you get to the threshold (of 20), when it turns orange and you get number too, and then when above the limit it's red (and the number is negative). Obviously we don't let the user write more than the limit ever, but it's pleasing how subtle it is until you need to pay attention.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T192166: Drop HHVM support from MediaWiki.
