Pharos updated subscribers of T238717: Navbox on Wikispore.

@Amire80 suggested the issue was possibly CSS., either missing CSS code from TemplateStyles or from Common.css. What do you think, @jeremyb @Tgr ?

Pharos added a comment to T218724: MassMessage to email should show section header, not bot username.

I guess noone objects to changing behavior in case of MassMessage? I would rather not wait another year for this, let's agree to just do that part.

Pharos added a comment to T218724: MassMessage to email should show section header, not bot username.

Would it be possible to just make a quick exception for MassMessage for now? Then we can figure out later if the limitation makes sense in general for unsigned additions.

Pharos added a comment to T218724: MassMessage to email should show section header, not bot username.

Best would be to have custom behavior if it's from the MassMessage bot, with no pointless authour information, and the section header in the title of the email. (so people know what the message is about before clicking).

Pharos added a comment to T218724: MassMessage to email should show section header, not bot username.

So testing locally, it looks like it only includes the section header in the email alert if it detects a signature.

While Wikimedia Space might be nice too as a supplement, it's still a niche platform, and the vast majority of potential Wikimedians interested in this project do use email. I can think of two dozen people to invite to a mailing list, and very few of those would be active Wikimedia Space users.

Hosting multiples "spores" on one wiki to start also means we only have to propose one Wikidata identifier property, which is a more modest ask of that community.

Pharos added a comment to T231072: Request creation of Wikispore VPS project.

If you have time and energy to build your own MediaWiki full stack wiki farm deployment tooling that's great. If not, MediaWiki-Vagrant exists and works today and has well documented integration with Cloud VPS projects.

Pharos added a comment to T231072: Request creation of Wikispore VPS project.

Now that I have written it down, it's a bit of a handful. Maybe we should cull it more.

You actually might be able to get started using https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:MediaWiki-Vagrant_in_Cloud_VPS and not worry about getting much fancier until you have enough wikis and usage that running it all on a single virtual machine becomes a performance issue. Building out fancy infrastructure before you find out the demand could distract you from the core problem of helping folks explore different contribution styles. (Says a person who has started many side projects and gotten lost in build and test tooling before proving that the idea was even worth continuing to code.)
