@Jdlrobson Thank you. Simplified the sentence structure and added it to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2019/47 which will be delivered to the wikis on Monday November 18.

I honestly don't know if there's a good candidate. Sakti? Dan Foy? (Probably not Dan, they were disconnected a bit through the project.)

Johan added a comment to T231449: Profile stats on the SE home page.

When it comes to re-enabling the feature ... we should be aware there's a fair number of reverts of good-faith edits because people don't grasp what the wikis are about, but our workflows should mainly avoid running into them as we're streamlining what people can do here. If we have already paused the functionality in a first step, then unpaused, and then it gets disabled, I've got no good idea for where to go from there.

Johan added a comment to T231449: Profile stats on the SE home page.

Regarding the helpful links: No, as far as I can tell, we've got a new use case here – the wikis have been solving this in different ways, and maybe we could manually compile a list but that would be basically going around everywhere asking people what their best page would be, and then getting wildly varying results. We're tying to get people to set something up, but for the time being I'd assume that if we want something we'd have to write it ourselves.

If we've got es, zh, fa we might want to look at en, as an outlier, and maybe ... uk and/or vi? Just looking at it from the outside, they're about a size that would be interesting, small number of CUs.

Just to contextualise – among other things, this means that the weekly technical newsletter on which we rely to inform the communities about upcoming problems, changes, new features, feedback we need to get on tools being developed and so on can't be delivered. Basically, we're very limited in our ability to talk to the communities.

"Consecutive" might also be a tad difficult for someone who wants to use the app for other languages than English.

So I should have thought of this earlier, but in general, I think it would benefit us if we made the language simpler. Even if I want to read and edit in a language that isn't English, in most cases, I'd still have to use the English interface. A few comments on the language as is shown in the images in general, not just here.

@Jdlrobson @Volker_E When is this going to be in production, if you know? Do you still plan on a script before you go ahead with anything?

Johan added a comment to T232392: EventBus extension must not send batches that are too large.

I suspect this is the reason why MassMessage isn't delivering Tech News to most subscribers. We're getting a good number of complaints, as the editors don't know what's happening – we can't warn them of changes that will happen, they're missing calls for action to tell us about problems some changes will cause, they're unaware of new tools and so on.

Johan added a comment to T232379: MassMessage problems - multiple deliveries and missing deliveries.

@doctaxon I'm not sure exactly what it is you're asking? The problems with multiple deliveries stem from the problem discussed in this task, for which a fix is being merged now. If you've got general questions about Tech News and how it's being delivered, I suggest you ask them at m:Talk:Tech/News and I'll be happy to answer.

In that case, I suggest getting said deduplication flag. It's bad that we're spamming people.

Sorry, my misunderstanding. I'd still not link to English Wikipedia, unless we're specifically showing it in an instance where the user is trying to edit English Wikipedia while blocked on English Wikipedia – i.e. not in our suggested edits, where they actually edit Wikidata.

I would avoid linking to the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:I_have_been_blocked page – it's specific for English Wikipedia in some ways, with links to appeal to the decision that will be confusing since they're not blocked in that sense, they just can't use this specific workflow in the app.

Johan added a comment to T232379: MassMessage problems - multiple deliveries and missing deliveries.

Also, Ukrainian Wikipedia hasn't got Tech News since September 4. This is limiting our ability to communicate any technical changes to editors: what's happening, what do they need to prepare for, what can they give feedback on – leading to tools having bigger potential to remain unused, preparations not being taken, and risk of conflict when they were not invited to discuss things that might change their workflows. Is that likely to be caused by T232392?

Johan added a comment to T232124: [Bug] mobile-html: consider removing position:fixed content.

I see no reason why this would be an area of conflict. If we can make sure this doesn't happen in the future in a way that wouldn't have other adverse effects, I'm sure most folks would agree that's great. If we can't address them without adverse effects – is this a common problem? No one wants the content obscured. The template was promptly removed by one editor for getting in the way, and another editor pointed out on the talk page that it's not supposed to be used in articles.
