I'm one of the Community Relations Specialists. I talk with readers, editors, volunteer developers and staff so that they can know each other, know what they do, what they expect and what they hope for. I mostly work with the Growth team around new features that help newcomers to successfully become editors.

I'm also working on documentation and easing translations or anything else that requires my support. See my assigned tasks.

Trizek-WMF added a comment to T284149: Deploy Growth features on Slovak Wikipedia.

Some of the config fields will definitely have to be edited, as the defaults generated with my script aren't good. I attach a printout of Special:EditGrowthConfig to share the configuration, as that's not yet available to unprivileged users (T284160).

Notable things:

  • No copyedit templates

It already happen at other wikis. It can be added later.

  • Descriptions of all help panel links are equal to the page-title, resulting in English links for help panel links leading to MW.org (special:Mylanguage/Help:VisualEditor/...).

I guess this is due to the absence of a label in Wikidata? Let's use English instead.

  • No article wizard (one is in Q4966605, maybe we can use it?)

Let's use it. It is better to have a link than nothing. I added this Wikidata item to our list of pages.

Trizek-WMF added a comment to T279434: Add a link: algorithm improvements: Define filter for not linking specific articles types.

A possible Wikidata item to consider for rejection is any article defined as events in a specific year or time period (Q18340514). These links are tricky to use, even when being an experienced user: you have an article about a given train station. Should the construction date link to the city or the railway?

A possible case would be an improved feature, where existing translations have been partially replaced by others and.or where new translations complement existing ones. It would be useful to check if these translations are done, and, of possible, to share a link with just the list of these needed translations to translations.

Getting local templates will be too difficult to deal with. It is already very difficult to find which templates we have to use for newcomers tasks on most wikis! The example given for Russian Wikipedia only has 6 interwiki links total for Wikipedia. If we decide to remove what's considered as NSFW options (which can vary from one human to another and lead to potential censorship), we need to find a centralized option.

@Urbanecm_WMF, can you change the Manual of style link in the help panel?
"How to write a good article" should go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Introduction_to_the_Manual_of_Style/1

Thank you for your feedback, @Sdkb.

  1. Replace the "how to create a new article" link, which currently goes to the superseded old version of the article wizard, with a link to Help:Your first article (a messy page that needs some streamlining but is the most appropriate target) or at least to the modern wizard.

Should a messy page replace a step by step process? From a newcomer point of view, a long page won't be read, I'm afraid.

I discuss about it with Marshall, and we conclude that it needs more thinking that just a fix. So I agree that we can work on it when time for Positive reinforcement comes.

I'm currently working on encouraging communities to work on translations (T281393). I manually checked which wikis where missing translations. A tool that highlights these translations gaps would be more than welcomed!

@geraki, I just delayed the deployment si that you can finish the translation process.

The standard "read only" banned is misleading in this case - the window will not be preventing edits, just a couple of other actions (see task description) - is it too late to clarify this?

Since its too late to get a good and short wording of what will actually be stopped, can I just suggest removing the "During this time you might not be able to save any edits." message from the banner?

This may be appropriate for a User-notice or a similar FYI at WP:VPT (since user notice is all wikis I guess).
