Hi Yasha,

I'll look at it, but as I said in T174528#3728973 the selection is already over; these microtasks were meant as a selection mechanism (since for real tasks multiple people couldn't work on the same thing, and having the same task for everyone made comparisons easy). If you want to work something for practice or getting familiar with the environment, it would be much better to find a real task (e.g. for existing Toolserver tools). I'm not sure what's a good way of finding an entry-level task, but the fine people at #wikimedia-cloud or #wikimedia-devrel can probably help.

Sir,
I have created a new tool (suggestible microtask 5) which shows the viewcount of last five edits made by user in current year.
Please review.

Thank you.

Sir,
As a suggestible Microtask 4, I have developed a tool which provides edit quality and article quality analysis of last 5 edits made by user in English-Wiki using ORES API.

@Tgr
Thank you very much sir for your comments.

I would swap the research into existing tools and proposing a design: you need to develop a good understanding of the problem domain before knowing what you want to design. You might even want to start with a minimal design and put most of the design work into the second phase of the project, when you already have a good idea of what kind of information you can collect/display.

True sir. I've have now swapped the proposal of design mockups with study of existing tools, so that first I may better understand the scope of problem and go on to implement minimal UI, in my first phase.

Yashasingh added a comment to T177335: Proposal: Tool for displaying a user contribution summary.

Regarding the timeline: almost all the work here is in "Implementing toolforge tool for above achievement parameters." and "writing code for making UI user customizable and allow selection feature". These are going to be a lot more work (and somewhat less predictable) than e.g. adding caching. They need more time and ideally should be broken into smaller pieces (although if customizability is a stretch goal then it's fine not to spend too much effort on planning it). Granted the first is sort of broken up already, with a separate devising/brainstorming period, but generally thinking about something for a week and then doing it for a week is not that effective - often you realize that something is not going to work as intended while doing it. So I'd break it up with more focus on the functionality then the "work phase" instead: spend some time on mapping the possiblities (starting with a week of planning makes sense, although I would call it research rather than brainstorming, it will mostly involve looking at code and suggestions other people have written in the past), based on that determine a list of features / information types, put them into three buckets, then implement bucket 1 on week 1, and so on.

@Yashasingh basically the Outreachy organizers think it's not realistic to work full-time on Outreachy when you also have a more-than-half-time university course going on. So you'd have to find out what the standard number of credits are for your next semester, such as a recommended course plan, and check if the number of credits you'll take are less than half of those (not counting any credits that you get for the Outreachy project).

Thank you for your support. I found that my phabricator account was linked with mediawiki account but not via LDAP account.
I resolved the issue by linking phabricator account with LDAP account.
