Sadads added a comment to T149642: Add Mediaviews to Pageviews suite.

@Qgil : I think so, and there are already some technical modules which do
the main behaviour here, but aren't integrated into this suite. For
example, https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAMorgan

Sadads added a comment to T167614: Bot that notifies Wikipedia when a file on Commons is nominated for deletion.

@Doc_James: as its been explained to me, there is no timestamp or queue of
those changes to the "file usage" list -- so its actually a bit more
complex question of logging those changes in a way that isn't super
intensive, one way or another.

@AlexMonk-WMF for the 2017 wikitext editor. I can think of a number of circumstances, where my typing in the the wikitext editor, has created a bad template, slow down or interfering with the accuracy of my contributions.

Sadads added a comment to T77154: Notification: Your file was used.

Hi, I saw that this was supported as part of the 2016 Community Wishlist. I wanted to note that there are other applications of data about when images are used, under which revision, including but not limited to, notifying folks of deletion discussions if they have used the media file in their own projects, tracking if mass uploads have been used by users, where the "uploader" may be an institution or bot operator, not the creator themselves, etc. I have outlined a bit more robust way of tracking that kind of data at: T137758 , which could then be used to populate these kinds of notifications.

Sadads added a comment to T145197: WMF pageview API (404 error) when requesting statitsics over around 1000 files on GLAMorgan.

@Nuria This isn't primarily an outreach.wikimedia problem: most of the files used for GLAMMorgan end up on other community projects, and the tool is creating a ceiling of some sort on the number of requests it runs. I wonder, perhaps, if it has to do with running individual page stats rather than in batches, etc.

Sadads added a comment to T145581: Investigation: Special:MediaChanges.

I think the main user story is something like:
*GLAM donates large number of content items to commons
*GLAM uses a category or pagepile of those Files (or another subsection of content) in a list, and wants to know "Who/When/How" they changed usage of the file
*Plug into tool that set that needs to be searched,
*Get report, so that they can reach out, reward or engage this group

Sadads updated subscribers of T120454: Dark archive for Commons.

Theoretically, this could be done rather robustly per @Mvolz , once we start sharing structured metadata described per T68108 . @Lydia_Pintscher & the Wikidata team probably will have a better sense if that is tangible -- but if they think structured data on commons is likely in the next year or two, I would not rush into building the Dark Archive, because semi-automatic function are much easier at that point.

Sadads added a comment to T123529: Add support for hashtags (URL parameter -> edit summary) in VisualEditor, WikiEditor, and ?? other editors.
  1. apply the above to any other edit I make during the same browser session

every edit? what about user talk page edits? or what if I go home and start editing other stuff, how do I clear this persistent auto-hashtag?

Thats a good engineering design question -- I think you would have to be able to remove a hashtag once from an edit summary and it not appear again-- we also might want a time limit on the persistence of the tag within someones browser. For most use cases for a "campaign hashtag", you are mostly working with editors that only participate in a particular window of time and/or around the event and/or campaign.

Another possibility would be to pre-fill the tag the first time (when the cause-effect connection is clear after landing into editing from a campaign-related link), and make it easy for users to add the tag themselves on upcoming edits. If we provide a tag selector that surfaces recent tags, a user may just need to type "#" and hit enter to select the most recent tag (probably about the campaign they are participating in).

In this way, the user discovers the tag the first time and we make it easy to use repeatedly when needed (both in terms of adding it quickly, and not requiring to recall the exact tag name). This approach eliminates the risk of forgetting to remove the tag when it is not appropriate, but introduces the risk of the user to forgetting adding it.

@Catrope that would be awesome if you can give it a try. We are hoping to start work with Collaboration sometime early next quarter, and want to make sure we understand what we are asking them to give notifications to.

Thanks for advocating for us Danny! The new graphs are awesome :)

I would think standard enabling it across the board, is going to be important, both for using it as a tool for tracking, and as it becomes available feeding the data into other tools, etc.

@Sadads You should not see the word "Langviews" anywhere... I'm assuming you are using the tool in a non-English language, or your computer is set to something that's not English? If you just see "langviews-error" or something like that, than the i18n library isn't falling back to English like it's supposed to :(

Anyway, it looks like the pages in that Page Pile all have Project: before the actual page name. This is why it isn't working.

E.g. Project:Wikipedia:Culture/New_York_Public_Library should be Wikipedia:Culture/New_York_Public_Library

@Nuria do we have a sense of when this will happen? There are a fair number of dependencies on having this data available.

@Tshrinivasan out of curiosity, would access directly to the Google OCR tools through Google be better than the current architecture, which requires routing content through Google Drive? And, are the Indic languages the only ones that would benefit from access to the OCR suite?

In the short term, we have been working with the developer of the Google Spreadsheets Wikipedia tool, namespace agnostic, so its super easy to grab non-article namespace -- not quite a pagepile, but fairly dynamic as a short term fix (we have a demo at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hUbMHmjoewO36kkE_LlTsj2JQL9018vEHTeAP7sR5ik/edit With Wikipedia Library project pages).

@Legoktm and @kaldari do we have a sense of why the data isn't logging yet? @Milimetric tried to check the log for the event, and wasn't able to find collection. Perhaps we are looking at the wrong location? The typo in "ExtenalLinksChange" still carried through, so it ought to be "ExternalLinksChange".

@Neil_P._Quinn_WMF , @Halfak and @Capt_Swing sorry for not following up sooner: we just need to know how many people got past the criteria of 500 edits and 6 months of activity in the last 3-4 months, so that we know what the trend is. Thanks @egalvezwmf for getting this started.
