alexhollender updated subscribers of T215426: Consider changing mobile site header height (and overlay header height) from 3.35em (53.6px) to 3em (48px).

Looking at this more closely, a 48px header looks small and therefore imbalanced to me.

alexhollender added a comment to T227917: Wikimedia UI: Icons with stroke cannot be requested in different variants.

@Jdlrobson for clarification: the svg we're using in AMC came from OOUI. Though I'm not sure if that means an update is needed or not.

alexhollender added a comment to T227624: UX problems with read/unread dots in Echo notifications.

For read notifications the dots have gray backgrounds, which doesn't communicate that they are interactive. They should have a white background.

That's a simple design change that's easy to make if @Cntlsn / @RHo agree. (It may also be worth asking @Pginer-WMF about, since he designed this originally.) For completeness, could you (@alexhollender) also specify what the hover color should be for these circles? They currently turn a darker gray on hover.

alexhollender added a comment to T225535: Notifications tray (mobile) - design refinements.

Interactive read/unread dot
I agree that this isn't super clear. On desktop at least it has a hover state, but on mobile it's not discoverable at all. This is a small fix for starters, just so it stands out more: T227624. Aside from adding a "mark as unread" button I don't have any other small ideas yet. We could look at some other mobile notification systems.

@Niedzielski

  • when I navigate to my sandbox I land on my sandbox and then the editor opens up (this also happens if I navigate to Talk, then using the tabs tap on User page - I only mention this in case it helps your investigation)
  • when I navigate to Talk it takes me to the wikipage version instead of the modal version
  • (Android only) the tap highlight on the menu items lingers for a moment after the menu closes. This is also the case with the overflow menu. Not sure it's worth looking into but wanted to point it out in case it's something obvious.

@Volker_E:

  • I like the update for the close button.
  • Regarding the primary button — I like the way it currently is on desktop. The full-height button feels more like a mobile pattern to me, though I don't have a specific rationale in mind.
  • Regarding the modal title — perhaps on mobile we could left-align the modal title, since there is less space and it can often look awkward to have a centered title, particularly if the text of the primary button is longer. But leave it centered on desktop?

alexhollender added a comment to T224735: [AMC] Updates to user pages.

@alexhollender @ovasileva just to confirm - couple questions:

  • this icon "shuffle" will be shipped with the overflow menu. Overflow menu is a separate feature that currently is enabled for AMC users only, but in the future we might move it to stable. In other words, if we enable Overflow menu for all users, then those icons will be arranged in this way even if users didn't opt into AMC mode

that sounds right to me. When the overflow menu is enabled we should always make this "icon shuffle" (as you called it).

Is the level of specificity of some of the example CSS rules required, e.g. .mw-rcfilters-ui-filterTagMultiselectWidget-views-select-widget.oo-ui-widget.oo-ui-widget-enabled.oo-ui-selectWidget.oo-ui-selectWidget-unpressed.oo-ui-selectWidget-depressed.oo-ui-buttonSelectWidget ?

@ovasileva I was thinking in the case that we find some extreme results (e.g. one or two of the items are used way more frequently than the others) we could make an update before pushing AMC out more broadly. I checked with @pmiazga and the menu items are easy to re-order. Though I'm also fine with that being out of scope for AMC.

@Jdrewniak cool, sounds like that might be the best direction. We don't need to support highlighting btw. By removing that button on each row there is more horizontal space for the description.

@Cntlsn my apologies for the late feedback here. Nirzar pointed out to me that we generally use toast messages instead of dialogs on mobile, e.g.

alexhollender added a comment to T223204: History page filter revisions cannot be expanded on Minerva skin.

@pmiazga good catch. This is an issue on mobile and desktop. Also, if you expand the filter, add some criteria, then click "Show results" the filter closes when the results are shown. Ideally the filter would remain expanded in that case.

alexhollender added a comment to T224883: Homepage: discovery of homepage after account creation (mobile).

@Cntlsn I wonder if notifications would be a more appropriate mechanism for this?

  • The dot on the hamburger menu seems more like a mechanism to lead users to a new, generic feature that has appeared (unrelated to a specific action the user has taken) - e.g. "new feature available in settings". In this case the interface has changed because of an action the user took (creating an account). It is more personal than generic.
  • I think if using the dot we also need to leave the user with a clear understanding of how it functions. The homepage is place the user will visit multiple times, so the dot might be misunderstood as a notification mechanism for contents on that page. In other words, is it announcing that the page exists, or announcing that there are updates/actions on the page to respond to? Should you expect a dot if you get a message from your mentor, or once your email has been verified, etc.? In the case of the settings page I tried to have a message at the end of the trail about "new setting" so it was clear what that dot was communicating.

Where the filters really fall down though, is the tag-selection dropdown.

It seems like all three filters (basic, namespace, and tags) use the same dropdown panel thing and are equally broken?

@alexhollender -- your team wants this capability for your potential future work right? I imagine we would engineer it to be part of the general mobile tab capabilities, not just for our team's work.

alexhollender raised the priority of T149068: Ambiguous to know where you are on Wikipedia Mobile while looking at navigation drawer from Low to Normal.

bumping the priority on this, I think it's a useful feature especially as a newcomer.
