OK - no problem - if it is complicated, than I just drop that idea to simplify interface for them. Tnx for elaboration.

Zblace added a comment to T275684: Deploy Growth features on Croatian Wikipedia.

One thing that I could imagine to quickly simplify landing page is to remove Central Notice for new users. Now it displays CEE Spring 2021 campaign for which I work and will I will mention, but it should not be there adding complexity to page where UI and content are almost the same.

I'm not sure how we can help there.
You can edit Mediawiki:growth-homepage-banner to display a banner at the top of the homepage, redirecting to CEE spring 2021 campaign...?

Hi folx - is it possible to test use this on HR Wikipedia without full translation? Most younger Croatians actually only know English terminology of interfaces as very few apps are translated and localized anyway. I would like to try to show it to a few I plan to work with. Best Z

That could work but I can imagine it also per bigger project or bigger event. Personally would love that WikiSpore gets its own *(so that tech and content discussions can be decoupled), but even more urgent is 2030 Movement strategy events which is now recommending TELEGRAM group as one and only channel of communication *(#veryBadCHOICE) :-/

I think you might be assuming both the technical knowledge and technical overview of how WMF infrastructure works that I do not have.

It's the whole community process as well.

I do not see how this would be informed discussion on Meta if there is no way for all to test use it?

Then I guess you're asking for a Cloud-VPS project?

I have no good overview of infrastructure options, but sure - yes.

Tagged it as such. Please see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/2875/ and update the task with the information it lists as needed.

@Zblace: why is this tagged with Cloud-VPS and Service requests? It's one or the other.

Well, Is it a volunteer managed VPS running on cloud services infra you want or something part of WMF Production?

I can see rationality behind your comment. I would for sure not expect that something is fully developed and finished as a regular working code, but this Request for Comment is really just a request for people to express interest and comment on what could be done so that a proposal could start articulation collectively by people who have hacking as a focus, rather then just people who have policy focus. Does that make any sense?
