I've now adjusted the submission controls to have two boxes - one for VE, one for code. This has propagated to all the Spaces. Not the prettiest, but it gets the job done! Thank you all. https://wikimania.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Submission_Controls

You could add another set of text field and button, though I'm afraid that may cause confusion. There's is a "Switch editor" button in the toolbar, to the top right (looks like a pen).

Wittylama added a comment to T220180: Wikimania Program Submission Form.

@Urbanecm I'm sorry if the "2019" namespace is confusing the system... this was the method that @Eric_Luth_WMSE and I came up with to make the wiki "future proof" for being able to handle future wikimanias. Previously every wikimania gets its own wiki, which is an unnecessary duplication in the opinion of many, but which does create the problem of how to deal with previous wikimania's content without merely overwriting it. We assumed a namespace which indicates the year is the best way to do that. e.g. 2019:Schedule, 2020:Schedule, 2021:Schedule...
If however there's a better solution that would mean some other bugs would become redundant and save time yourself and others - please say so. We are not ideologically-wedded to the 2019 namespace, it's just a solution to a problem we know will arise in the future. :-)

Wittylama added a comment to T220180: Wikimania Program Submission Form.

requested small adjustments to the Template:Submission Form:

  • I think you can force no table of contents
  • each 'space's submission form should categorise the submission to that space specifically e.g. "glam submissions". So the leaders of that space can find theirs, and only theirs.
  • The top of each submission should also include some Wikimania equivalent of this template https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:GLAMTLV2018_open_submission
  • Each subheading should have some visible explanatory text. e.g. the 'type' should give a list of the allowed options. the 'relationship to theme' should have a short sentence that links to the [[theme]] page...

With @Sebastian_Berlin-WMSE 's comment here, I'm thinking I have to agree with him...
While I vastly prefer the improved user interface of the formWizard, I think we should also not introduce more technical complexity for the 'leaders' . At least the preload system is something that Wikimedians are familiar with even if it is ugly. It is less ugly than it used to be, i see, because the test module you created loads directly into Visual Editor (I'd not seen that before, which is a nice touch).

Relatedly: @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE & @johl recommended FRAB - http://frab.github.io/frab/ - which has many of the desired features above (but not oAUth) and seems to have fewer technical dependencies compared to Indico (see a summary of these done by @JeanFred over on T210952) Also, we have connection to the developers (including Jens himself) as it's built by and for the Chaos Computer Club at their conference (Chaos Communication Congress).

Wittylama added a comment to T210951: Evaluate Indico as submission software for Wikimania.

With Ellie, Irene, JamesF, Phoebe, we have identified several options to do this. A summary is:

  • MediaWiki (which was used for most wikimanias in the past, but has been deemed not fit for the logistical needs of wikimania and the templates managing submissions etc are not easy to operate. It also requires lots of secondary systems (spreadsheets) to track private info, conversations, acceptances...
  • third party hosted and paid software “EasyChair” has been used twice (esino Lario, Cape Town) and is very cumbersome, not tailored or tailorable to our needs. Very difficult to export from. However, as a hosted solution it was at least “ready to go” when we wanted to start.
  • some kind of “build our own from scratch” option - which might be ideal but not viable for the 2019 wikimania
  • Indico is a floss, host your own, system built by CERN for their own conference needs. Theoretically it can handle the whole conference lifecycle - from submission through reviewing, registration, scheduling and presenting - and with oAuth should mean we don’t need separate logins than the existing MediaWiki user accounts. However, it may require a lot of tweaking and database management to set up.
  • there are many other paid solutions out there, but they can become very expensive and are not future-proof because you can’t extract the data necessarily.

Wittylama added a comment to T147855: Work out possible collaborations around European Year of Cultural Heritage.

Not specifically related to WLM, but Europeana leadership - who are already discussing potential ideas with Europea-Nostra and others - have recently asked me to identify if there's a major Wikimedia campaign (or proposed campaign) they could be part of or lead. It seems everyone is interested in doing *something* but no one is super-sure what that thing should be. But, at the very least - Europeana is willing and able to try to build a project that has Wikimedia at its centre, if we can come up with a project that makes sense for all stakeholders.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask this - but did the people interested in this bug know about the 2017 IIIF conference happening in June at the Vatican? http://iiif.io/event/2017/vatican/#iiif-conference---the-vatican---2017 Calls for proposals close on 23 February (in 10 days from when I'm writing this comment),
If I understand correctly, IIIF would be something that could be highly relevant to the Structured Data On Commons project, and therefore potentially worth pursuing under that frame of reference?

@MusikAnimal yes, that is a specific case, but it's just a case that I know of.
The hashtag function is a potentially good one for tracking an editathon (especially a distributed event) because it allows people to self-identify individual edits across any page that the editor themself says are related to the topic - even if the event coordinator didn't think of that.

@MusikAnimal My specific use-case for this request is based on this project: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Europeana_Art_History_Challenge/Data
Which is tracking 280 specific paintings (ten per E.U. country) and encouraging people to write about their own country's paintings & translate articles about each others'. As you can see from that big table of translations there are a fixed number of languages being tracked, and a fixed number of Wikidata items. However there is NOT any one Wikipedia language edition in which ALL of the paintings exist as an article. The ONLY place where they ALL exist is in Wikidata.

Wittylama added a comment to T120677: Make "last modified" message at the bottom more obvious about its containing links.

The other discussion - T94298 - is about redesigning the layout of the mobile footer to remove the 'last edited by' section. I am not expressing an opinion on that issue. THIS bug is about indicating that something which is a link, is somehow identifiable as a link. That could be underlined, blue, chevron, some kind of shading to indicate a button, whatever.
But, since linking is apparently no longer a thing on the internet, I guess that means you can close this bug as 'wontfix'.

Wittylama added a comment to T120677: Make "last modified" message at the bottom more obvious about its containing links.

@Nirzar I think either of those two mockups are fine concepts - my only point is that when there's something that's a link, the fact that it is clickable should be made evident. For example, in the first mockup you provided the "edited by 72 members" doesn't pass this test because there's no way to know that it goes to the history page.

That indeed fixed it. Don't know how or why...

Just came here to report the exact same bug. I just made a VE edit in en.wp and the related articles then came up appearing on top. This was the edit - https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Anu_Singh&type=revision&diff=700491912&oldid=686000746 See attached screenshot for how it appeared on my screen.

Wittylama added a comment to T103082: Explore ideas for workflow support.

I believe there will be little community support for the proposal described here. It's not useful. We're not looking for structured discussions, and we don't want to go to a Flow board to paste in an article title for deletion. Twinkle lets us nominate an article for deletion while at the article page.

Wittylama added a comment to T119337: Investigate MobileFrontend's "more than 5 edits" logic (duplicating autoconfirmed?).

My only position on this issue would be not to "reinvent the wheel'. I prefer if you choose "logged in" rather than "autoconfirmed" as the measurement of whether someone is sufficiently "interested" to warrant showing them more features - because it is the lower bar for entry and is also a feature that is a standard binary option across all wikis (whereas the level at which autoconfirmed is set can be adjusted on a per-wiki basis [I think]).

@Wittylama sure I had fought this originally, but given the conversation here: T118338, I think that's probably a better proxy for 'interest'.
Curious though--is this because anyone is complaining, because the principle is more sound, or because it's duping logic elsewhere.

Wittylama added a comment to T121402: "related articles" showing regardless of beta features preferences.

My mistake - didn't see that this feature was called "read more", was looking for "related articles" instead. Yes, the beta-features tool is working correctly. This is just user error (though, putting the phrase "related articles" in the beta feature description might help others who are similarly dim.

Confusingly the feature is listed as "read more" (only one of the extensions that powers it is called related articles). Can you confirm that shows up as I'm unable to replicate.

hi @bmansurov. I created T121402 specifically for this issue as I wasn't sure if this phabricator ticket was the correct place to put things. In it, I added some more detail (like that when I tried to see how it displayed for a different user I couldn't get it to load on ANY page.

Wittylama added a comment to T117970: Add a 'contributions' tab to mobile web beta channel.

Note when comparing mobile to desktop it's important to recognise that studies show mobile behaviour is actually very different to desktop so we're always keen to test things out rather than assume just because X is here on desktop it should be in the same place on mobile.
...
Interestingly we moved the bar to the bottom of the page at the start of October and links to user profile dropped drastically but history links increased. Not sure how to interpret that :)

The only way that you'll know it's a link is if you click it by accident and, based on the feedback that you've been taken to an article history page, become aware of what you did and consciously learn that those words are secretly links.

There's a related discussion on MediaWiki.org about beta features: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Ss54yq1w3twctqsj
TheDJ and Jdforrester are suggesting that the Beta Features system would need to be completely rebuilt to be able to scale anyway and that it wouldn't catch the kind of bugs I'm suggesting it ought to.

Hmm, that's probably a good idea, but just to devil's advocate... do you think a new newsletter is needed, or is an entry in Tech/News sufficient for the currently infrequent updates/releases/requests-for-feedback?
(Tangetially, I still hope that MediaWiki-extensions-Newsletter can be further developed and eventually deployed. :)
