Quiddity added a comment to T224681: Events Portal Creation on Wikis.

@JLetangWMF AFAIK, it is not currently possible to embed content from Wikimedia Space into the wikis, although that is certainly a desired feature - hopefully in the (somewhat distant) future.
For now, the main option is to provide links to the calendar-view and map-view at Wikimedia Space, and supplement that with the existing links to the many scattered locations these things are currently tracked (such as m:Events etc).

Quiddity added a project to T226018: GSoD Proposal: Improve documentation for Wikimedia’s technical documentarians and videographers: Documentation.

This proposal looks wonderful. My only concern is that it seems to cover almost everything in GSOD leaving almost nothing for others! (semi-joking ;D ). However that might also mean that the scope is unfeasibly large? But your detailed timeline seems to indicate that you have good guesses about how long each action-item might take (and obviously some of that will change as you get deep into some tasks and need to adjust).

Quiddity added a comment to T224741: Collapsed string of note marks (aka references).

Personally, I think it is helpful for readers to immediately be able to see when text has multiple citations, because that implicitly has the information that editors have considered it worth giving multiple references, which might indicate that the information has been questioned, or is controversial in some way. E.g. the second sentence at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeopathy !

Quiddity added a comment to Blog Post: Performance perception: how satisfied are Wikipedia users?.

@Gilles Nope, I meant just opening a very large article to read.
Years ago (2010 era? maybe earlier or later), on my outdated hardware, it often took 30-45 seconds to fully load a very-large article/page to read; although I've always had a profusion of gadgets and userscripts installed which I know adds to the load-time.
Now it takes 4.1 seconds to load the Obama article, which is amazing! F29280932 - I tried opening a handful of links in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:LongPages and most of those are even faster, at 2-3 seconds.
I know (thanks to Krinkle) that there are other changes which have contributed to this such as better global networks and better internal routing configurations, plus my own upgraded hardware, and better browsers, but still. Much Kudos to you all. :-)

Quiddity added a comment to Blog Post: Performance perception: how satisfied are Wikipedia users?.

Another possible explanation for logged-in editors rating it more highly, as they might be long-time contributors who remember how long it took for large articles to load, many years ago. I remember [[Canada]] used to take ~45 seconds to load. Now it takes 5 seconds! I even went and checked the history of the article's size to see if it used to be much bigger, but no: it used to hover around 130kb, but nowadays it's up to 230kb. Y'all are amazing. <3
