Notification for Phase 3 (small and mid-sized Wikipedias) will rely heavily on Tech/News. However, there are six Wikipedias in Phase 3 that don't have the Reply tool enabled by default already and did have more than 1,000 active registered editors last month: trwiki, svwiki, fiwiki, nowiki, cawiki, and simplewiki. I plan to post an extra notice this week at those wikis.

I'd like to know how many sections have been subscribed to at enwiki (not necessarily counting mine, because I'm using it a lot). We had an active discussion about this starting last Friday (27 August 2021), so I think that 26 August is the baseline state. I'm curious whether this discussion will result in much wider use on other pages.

@Craig_Cholar, would you be willing to run an experiment for me? "NAVPOPS" overrides Page Preview. Would you go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets and turn on the item (#6) that says "Navigation popups: article previews and editing functions pop up when hovering over links", and see if this makes the memory leak go away? (Doing this will only affect the English Wikipedia, so you'll have to test it there.)

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T288161: Enable CodeMirror's Syntax Highlighting on English Wikipedia by default.

Regarding WhatamIdoing's concerns, I think that's unlikely to apply if it's only new editors: they don't have prior expectations of the Wikipedia interface, so they're not going to have any attachment to a status quo or experience any disruption.

  • The only scenario where you need to do that is when you're blocked and requesting to be unblocked (because you're not able to edit any other page while blocked). Depending on the wiki, you might be supposed to use a template when doing this (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Unblock, it adds your talk page to a category that people watch and will see the edit), so it might be more awkward to do in our default visual mode.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T274831: Implement empty state mockups for *user* talk pages (logged in).

About If this is your page, log in to start creating the page. I believe that it's easy to link to the login page, and that it _might_ be possible to only show this line to people who are not logged in.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T274832: Implement user experience for non-existent (red-linked) *non-user* talk pages.

@Whatamidoing-WMF can you say more about this? I know we discussed it but I'm having some trouble remember what the button would actually say.

I have a confirmed e-mail address on the Beta Cluster, and – after I remembered to go to https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-echo and turn on e-mail notifications for "Talk page subscription" – I immediately received an e-mail notification triggered by an edit from my other account.
