Good points! Thanks for that. Yeah, everything has pros/cons, and all people have personal subjective weighting of each of those pros/cons. I guess leaving it up to the topic leaders for each, is the most pragmatic. :/

Quiddity added a comment to T147696: Statistics about /active/ users of skins on the Wikimedia cluster.

Something I find also interesting is what Firefox does with "about:config", making the lesser used settings harder to discover but still changeable (and the overwritten entries could be easily listed somewhere more visible). Also, it comes with a "really want to do this?"-warning.

Quiddity added a comment to T185012: WMDS 18: Collect feedback as is comes.

I'd prefer if we use an etherpad for this because that lets participants and remotees participate ahead of the meeting

Each session has some standard structure in the task description, which is intended to encourage exactly this kind of pre-event participation. However, we're encouraging people to discuss the topics in phabricator ahead of time (instead of etherpad), I think primarily because that generates email/notifications, which thus reminds everyone to see the latest update(s). Ideally, the topic leaders will collate and summarize the feedback received within the phab comments, before (or at the start of) their sessions. I did add etherpad links to all the sessions yesterday, but primarily so that they'd be ready for live notetaking on the day. The one you already commented on has been merged with the default placeholder bits. https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/wm-dev-summit-2018-supporting-3rd-party but it might be good to raise those thoughts in the phab comments, too. :-)

IIUC, that list is global, not specific to Enwiki, per https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Interwiki - (I assume the name of that .json file, or the inclusion of that list in that file, is a historic artifact, or something similarly/more complicated!

Quiddity updated subscribers of T138622: Help community migrate away from legacy Main page special casing.

Yes, emphatically, to what MattFitzpatrick wrote. I was part of the successful 2005 Enwiki main page redesign, and I've tried to help almost all the subsequent attempts to avoid the problems we ran into in every iteration since. -- TLDR: Do not mix together the many aspects of change, if at all possible - I.e. (1) backend decisions (tables vs CSS), should be addressed separately from (2) which content blocks are shown, and (3) what order they are shown in, and (4) using what aesthetics of design. -- I might be able to answer other specific questions, but there really are some stressful memories in there (for us collectively, and personally).
I agree with Matt that Enwiki is perfectly amenable to changing from tables to CSS, just don't change anything else at the same time.
If memory serves, there was a related design in the 2012 attempt at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Br'er_Rabbit/sandbox.css and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:2012_main_page_redesign_proposal/Br'er_Rabbit (deleted by user-request because of his frustration, but admins might be able to rescue the perfectly valid code) that merely changed tables to CSS.
Also I vaguely recall the 2016 attempt started off as just a table-replacement, but then veered off into "whilst we're changing things...." territory. Possibly there are older diffs at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Main_Page_(2016_redesign)?withCSS=MediaWiki:User:Main_Page/NewMainPage.css worth using.

Quiddity added a comment to T181436: Add MinervaNeue credits line to skin.json.

I personally don't like suggesting ownership of open source software for which numerous people have contributed (some still contributing some not) so I purposely avoided adding one in order not to offend people or add people who didn't want to be added.

Is there a reason we need this?
