The AMC toggle seems to be working great! Please note: the mocks in the description of this task are currently outdated (but I didn't want to swap in the new ones for the sake of posterity). Please refer to T214195 when making any further design changes to the settings page.

alexhollender added a comment to T198652: Links to anchors within the same page trigger page previews..

@Niedzielski my opinion is that a page preview of the page you're currently on is more confusing than helpful. I understand from the perspective of consistency that any link should have a corresponding page preview, however given the context (you are already on the page) I think the page preview a) doesn't add value to your experience, and b) potentially confuses you (for myself at least it usually takes me a few seconds to realize that I'm looking at a preview of the page I'm currently on). I am therefore okay with breaking the pattern in this case.

alexhollender added a comment to T211197: Build AMC opt-in toggle.

@Jdlrobson @pmiazga apologies for the switch up / sneak attack here. When we initially discussed the idea of an incremental/progressive AMC release I mentioned that one counter-balance I'd like is an explicit call-out on the settings page to let users know what we're up to, roughly what's coming, and a place to submit feedback. I should've explicitly mentioned to y'all that I was following through with that idea here, with these updated mocks. It sounds like we've got things sorted now.

@Jdlrobson is there a general practice against self linking? Do you know where there is WP documentation about this? In terms of manually created self links within the article contents I wonder if this issue lies more within the editing realm?

I spoke with Nirzar and we concluded that this behavior is not desired. Two possible solutions:

  • remove the page preview and do nothing on hover

Due to the slow speed of the scroll the affect is a bit frustrating on long articles. Additionally, if you've used the TOC to navigate to multiple sections, then use the back button, it results in slightly confusing behavior. My apologies for not anticipating this earlier.

  • is the current best practice on Wikidata to capitalize the first letter of descriptions? If not (i.e. we can't count on them slowly being updated), what other method do you think might work to achieve the capitalization @Jdlrobson? From Wikidata's perspective I could imagine that storing the description without any capitalization is preferred

Interesting...okay, so something like this might make more sense, however:

  1. in some cases the panel itself will need to be scroll-able (assuming we don't want to make it taller - I imagine this would frustrate people)
  2. in most(?) cases the page itself will also be scroll-able. It does seem like we could remove the Wikipedia page footer from the diff views so at least shorter diffs don't result in a scroll-able page.

@Jdlrobson maybe some additional clarification is needed — you said:

The request is to make it behave like a mobile device in portrait mode, but a tablet device in landscape mode.

@Force_Radical this is awesome. It looks like there is an updated editUndo icon on OOUI. Although I wonder if the icon adds much in this context? I think it also potentially works well to just have "Undo edit" as the label on the button:

alexhollender added a comment to T211162: [Bug] Exiting and re-entering the image gallery via browser history loses page scroll offset.

Confirming this bug (although on iOS/Chrome & Safari I am unable to reproduce it). As far as I can tell this only occurs as the result of using the browsers "forward" button to enter into the media overlay. I would guess this isn't a particularly common flow, and thus this is lower priority, but perhaps we could confirm with data?

@ovasileva I'm fine with us not supporting fully functional page previews at this browser width. Oddly enough there is enough room to display the preview though, so I wonder if there's something relatively straightforward we can tweak in the display logic that avoids this?

@Jdlrobson I agree that Option 2 seems like the best UX. In terms of optimizing the threshold so that we minimize requests, I'm not quite sure how to go about figuring that out. Trial+error: trying, looking at data, and revising. Or some kind of engineering solution that predicts the chances of someone reaching the bottom?
