Tgr added a comment to T226631: Write user documentation for Matrix trial.

One of the annoying things about the Riot web client is that it loads quite slowly (as in, the initial downloading of all JS is slow). Someone has packaged it now as a browser extension (Firefox, Chrome, Github); that's probably worth calling out in the documentation.

Tgr added a comment to T242476: Newcomer tasks: when selecting multiple topics, one topic should not dominate over the others.

Cool, that sounds a lot less effort to maintain than per-topic weights. If defining a custom function is easy, maybe we could use the max of the sigmoids instead of the sum? I think that's closer to how topic search is intended to work (if I check that I'm interested in art and physics, I would want articles that are about art or physics, not necessarily both).

Tgr added a comment to T242814: Newcomer tasks: Discrepancy in article counter on "Select your interests" .

Honestly, I don't think anyone will care about it. Search result counts are often a bit strange since counting large sets are hard and search engines tend to cheat in various ways (try paging search results in Google or Gmail for example and watch how the counts fluctuate).

Tgr added a comment to T240034: Newcomer tasks: focus images of people on faces.

Probably not easy enough to do it in real-time though, right? So where would we store it? AIUI storing and accessing structured data is a bit inconvenient now for Commons files, and entirely impossible for non-Commons files. (Although in theory images of living people should all be in Commons, if the wiki follows the non-free content guidelines...)
Probably something to coordinate with the Structured Data team.

Yeah, that's what I meant with "keep having 200 cards". We'd probably want to change the copy for the no more results card though (maybe even add a different variant for the "there are more results but we won't show them" case) because the current one seems confusing.

Tgr updated subscribers of T243477: Newcomer tasks: update topic task suggestion backend to handle multiple topic search methods.

@MMiller_WMF one relevant question is, will we end up with the same topic list we use currently? If we do, we can just reuse the same on-wiki configuration pages and add the ORES config as another field next to the morelike config. If it's going to be a different set of topics, we'll probably want to use a new configuration page, and then we'll need some changes to the configuration loading logic too.

Tgr added a comment to T243036: Newcomer tasks: rules for duplicate results.

To avoid maintaining an extra configuration setting, I'll use the filter dialog order for precedence (ie. we choose copyedit over link, link over update and so on). It's easy to change, if maintaining a different precedence order is preferred.
For topics it will be similar: topics that come first in the JSON file and the filter dialog are preferred when a task is in two topics. (Having to deduplicate topics should be a temporary issue in any case.)

Tgr updated subscribers of T240558: Update ORES drafttopic data score in ElasticSearch when an article gets edited.

@MMiller_WMF how do we prioritize this? Given the advanced state of T240556: Load ORES drafttopic data into ElasticSearch via the weekly bulk update, this probably won't be needed to have ORES search, but without it scores only update weekly (so recently created articles won't be returned); with it updates would be real-time.

Tgr added a comment to T242492: Add weight parameter to morelikethis CirrusSearch feature.

To clarify, for Growth this is a nice-to-have since if all goes well soon we'll be using ORES for topic search. But it seems to me like a sensible thing in general (of course often a sensible thing for the user is feature creep for the maintainer).
Also we might need the equivalent functionality for ORES search.

Tgr added a comment to T238317: Newcomer tasks: medium difficulty label goes out of background in Czech.

Yeah, when all the text does not fit on a single line, it's handled by moving the difficulty label to a separate line. We can handle it differently if that's preferred (e.g. do the same but align it left; keep the label multi-line but expand the background to match it; keep the difficulty label on one line, even if that means the task name becames narrow and might turn into a weird "tower"); I don't see an obviously correct solution here that would stand out from the rest.

Tgr added a comment to T230531: Run Matrix trial using the modular.im-hosted instance.

Thanks all for the offers to help! I think the immediate most useful thing would be to create a new user with Riot (the web, old/new iOS, old/new Android, desktop clients are all interesting targets; or if you feel strongly about using one of the alternative clients, that might be useful too), look at the basic things that can be done, take screenshots and write some documentation, as per T226631. (We have m:Matrix.org but that's very focused on using it as an IRC client, as opposed to chat client in general.) Then do the same with the internal matrix instance at wikimedia.riot.im, to the extent there are any differences (registration/login and privacy options, I guess).

Is the goal here to animate the icon while the search is running in the background, or to animate it for a short time once the results have been updated, to draw attention to the new number? In the former case, should we also replace the old number with something indicating that we don't have the number yet?

Tgr added a comment to T242814: Newcomer tasks: Discrepancy in article counter on "Select your interests" .

Can't reproduce the weird part - selecting Zdraví + Společenské vědy gives me 4 hits. Other than that, this is just due to (not) double-counting as you say. Which is currently somewhat incorrect as the tasks do get duplicated (the patch makes sure that we always report the number of task cards, not the number of matching articles, when the two differ), but once T243036: Newcomer tasks: rules for duplicate results is fixed this will be the correct behavior.

Tgr added a comment to T243038: Newcomer tasks: article counter in Start editing dialog footer displays more than 200.

This is the same as T242814: Newcomer tasks: Discrepancy in article counter on "Select your interests" : we display the real result count (how many matching articles are there on the server), not the task card count.

Which namespace(s) and/or categories the Help panel search should handle (0 is mandatory) = 0, 4; Kategória:Segítség

I don't believe 0 is mandatory here at all. The normal setting is 4, 12 (Wikipedia and Help). We also don't have support for searching in categories right now.

Tgr added a comment to T211539: Beta Cluster cross-wiki login request would be blocked by CSP.

Requests from the mobile domain to the canonical domain (e.g. cs.m.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org -> cs.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org) are also faux-blocked. This would affect EventLogging, probably a number of other things too.

Tgr added a comment to T224883: Homepage: discovery of homepage after account creation (mobile).

The current behavior is:

  • If you click on some link that's part of the survey, like the "skip" button, since we control the URL, we put a tag in it, and on pages with that tag in the URL, we show the notice.
  • If you use normal browser navigation (that is, click on a link in the hamburger menu, or in notifications or search results) then Special:WelcomeSurvey will be in the referrer, and again we detect that and display the notice.

Tgr added a comment to T238612: Newcomer tasks: topic filters.

Do we really care about the difficulty and topic dialogs being the same size, or is it just that the topic dialog should be tall enough to not change when the user clicks "show more"? That seems a lot easier.

Tgr added a comment to T242889: Newcomer tasks: upgrades to article counter.

FWIW, the number of tasks we fetch from the API (which has performance implications), the number of cards we allow the user to page through, and the number we cap the result counter at, don't necessarily have to be the same. Detaching the first would take some engineering effort (making API continuation work), detaching the last would be trivial; so if we want to keep having 200 cards but show result counts up to, say, 1000, that would be easy to do.

Tgr moved T242052: Newcomer tasks: topic matching instrumentation from In Progress to Code Review on the Growth-Team (Current Sprint) board.

Yeah, I figured it's easy to get that via negative conditions so we can as well as spare the storage space / bandwith (while sparing even more by only storing the cut position within the topic array, or something like that, would be annoying when doing analytics).

Yeah, the CirrusSearch API we use internally returns the total number of available results, no matter how many results we ask for.
