Koavf added a comment to T64717: Move oldwikisource on www.wikisource.org to mul.wikisource.org.

Is it any trickier than it was five years ago? It seems like making new wikis is a lot harder than it was. Is there some kind of structural problem here? We've had some non-standard names to be changed (like roa-rup.wp or zh* Wikipedias at T10217) for years and years.

I see a Facebook icon with a share link which - as explained by others - does not share data about site visitors until people click the link and share on their Facebook profile. I do not see a Facebook button that does what you are describing nor can I find any code which would allow for one to be displayed.
If there is a button which is calling back to Facebook - what steps are you taking for it to appear and can you provide a screenshot?

The RfC has ended without a formal closure, and is now archived. There was majority support for all six file types that were options by the end of the RfC, although five users opposed allowing MuseScore uploads mainly due to issues with the file format.

I'm not sure adding 5 different file types for the same type of content is the best idea, but okay...

Koavf added a comment to T202794: Many more languages need to be added to Multilingual Wikisource (mul.ws).

If there is a standard Names.php deployed to most WMF projects, it would need to be greatly expanded at mul.ws--that is the only project that is intended to host multilingual content (with Commons, Data, and Species being presumably language-agnostic repositories) and that also includes very small languages that will never have content elsewhere. In fact, some of the content there may not be linguistic at all, so we need to have the four special codes listed above and possibly even the private use area to define if that's an option.

Koavf added a comment to T54971: [Goal] Sitelinks and arbitrary accesses to Incubator, OldWikisource and BetaWikiversity.

If necessary, we may need to disengage the proposal for mul.ws from the two incubators. Again, mul.ws is a permanent home for some works and unlike incubator and beta.wv, some works will stay there permanently. There will never be a Volapük Wikisource--the corpus of texts is too small and there is no chance of language revival for it or a huge influx of original translations into it. mul.ws does not use multiple subdirectories as on Incubator, so it's not like two pages are going to have the same title but they are just in different test projects like /Wy/qqq/foo and /Wq/qqq/foo or something.

Koavf added a comment to T186478: Create keyboard shortcuts for navigating in ProofreadPage.

I think the arrow keys sound suitable. Do they clash with anything though? I mean, I know they're not currently activated on Wikisource, but are there other common usages of these combinations, or other extensions that use them? (As far as I can see, there aren't.)

Huh. Thanks for the heads-up. I'm surprised this is even customized... I suspect that if they are just deleted outrite they will revert to the default behavior which is Unicode arrows.

Koavf added a comment to T161450: Figure out what to do and whether to do something with Incubator, Beta Wikiversity and Old Wikisource.

Beta.wv should be closed and incorporated into Incubator and some of the discussion into Meta. mul.ws should stand as an independent project as 1.) it hosts small languages which could never in principle graduate to their own subdomain and 2.) material which is itself multi-lingual. Wikisource is the only project that should be hosting multi-lingual content (data and species are more-or-less non-linguistic in their content and commons has content all across the board stored together but very few files which are themselves multi-lingual other than scans for mul.ws).

Both things requested above: mark the default language as <code>mul</code> and make it so that individual pages can be edited. See e.g. https://wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Index:Festival_Romanistica.pdf&action=info and https://outreach.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&action=info (the latter is editable and the former is not).

Koavf added a comment to T54971: [Goal] Sitelinks and arbitrary accesses to Incubator, OldWikisource and BetaWikiversity.

Very much so. There are perfectly legitimate documents at mul.ws and in addition to being disrespectful for the work put into them, some of those documents are among the few of a given language that even exist. If mul.ws continues in fulfilling its purpose, it will be a very valuable resource for many languages which are more-or-less not literate, endangered, or extinct. That's culturally invaluable. So yes, please make incoming links to mul.ws which is a stable resource that has a functioning subdomain (if memory serves, I was the one who proposed that mul.wikisource.org redirect to wikisource.org). Separate out beta.wv and Incubator if necessary but please move forward on mul.ws.

Koavf added a comment to T54971: [Goal] Sitelinks and arbitrary accesses to Incubator, OldWikisource and BetaWikiversity.

For what it's worth, a subtle point about mul.ws may be missed here. The goal of Incubator and beta.wv (which I firmly believe should have been incorporated into Incubator many years ago) is two-fold: to foster small content that can grow into an independent project either from 1.) a closed wiki that used to be live or 2.) a newly-established community. Mul.ws doesn't really function that way--altho some projects do graduate into their own subdomains, 1.) many never will, simply because the corpus of literature doesn't exist and 2.) there are works which *are* themselves multilingual. There is no reason to have (e.g.) a collection of quotations in two different languages but there are very good reasons to hosts books which were published in multiple languages. So the best case scenario for Incubator and beta.wv is that everything graduates and there isn't really much that stays there or "happens" at those wikis other than moving them into maturity and some small coordination. Mul.ws is and should always be a stand-alone project which will harbor content indefinitely.

Firefox 55, Windows 10 (Sorry, it's my work computer). I wish they were like your screenshot. See the *very* subtle difference between "Show preview" and "Show changes" below.

This is the last big project that doesn't have support other than Incubator (which is on the roadmap) and maybe Wikitech. Anything else is very arcane and would probably not benefit much from Wikidata access.
