JMatazzoni (WMF) [ Global Accounts ]

In a career developing and managing large-scale, high-profile digital publications, I've worked with some of the most respected names in news and nonprofit media, including NPR, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News and KQED, San Francisco. I have a master's degree in interactive media from NYU's ITP program. After many years in exile on the East Coast, I'm delighted to be back in my native Bay Area and to have the opportunity to continue my work in public-interest publishing at the Wikimedia Foundation.

Recent projects as the product manager for Global Collaboration:

  • Cross-wiki notifications and the redesigned Notifications Page, which enables users to more easily find and manager their notifications.
  • The New Filters for Edit Review, which allow users to review edits on Recent Changes and Watchlist using an easier and more powerful interface and a raft of new tools, including predictive filters powered by machine-learning.

@alexhollender talking to @Mooeypoo again, she has revised her opinion about whether a popup/menu or toggle switch is a good way to go. We are now back to a strong opinion that the best option here will be a simple link that switches depending on what mode you're in, like so:

jmatazzoni added a comment to T221425: Design studies for dark mode styles/color scheme.

@alexhollender I just spotted yet another type of link style that we should go ahead and control. External (off-wiki) links are now showing up as a light pink color. In the default mode, it looks like they are a slightly different blue from the normal link blue, but it's so subtle I imagine it's not on purpose. So I would imagine they should just be styled in our normal link color. (They are differentiated, of course, but the off-wiki arrow icon when appropriate.)

I also renamed it, to make it more clear that this is not just a holding tank for stuff we've observed, but an "investigation" ticket. Please look into these issues and either:

@jmatazzoni given that the large majority of users use Vector I wonder if our time would be better spent making the dark mode experience for Vector better, rather than supporting other skins? Any additional skin we support means additional QA, bug fixes, etc.

I need to formulate an official stand on which skins we are going to support (I've put it on the Agenda for standup). I know there's interest in Timeless, so I had a look at that with the new CSS. The colors all seem to work fine in Timeless. But I do spot one layout issue: on page the main page title gets cut off at the top by the Timeless header. See screenshot. @alexhollender is there an easy fix for this?

Just out of curiosity, recent MacOS versions have added dark-mode as an OS level feature, and a new CSS media query has been devised to response to that setting: prefers-color-scheme. The spec is only a draft at this point, but it's already been implemented in Safari and Firefox on MacOS. It would be pretty cool if our solution responded to that OS-level setting, so I'm just wondering if that's been considered.

On a related note, @MusikAnimal @jmatazzoni have we thought at all about introducing some kind of hook/media-query that template editors could use in order to define dark-mode versions for their templates via template styles? I'm not sure how this would work technically, but I imagine it would be a worthwhile investment in that it would allow editors the ability to improve all of the individual elements that we are intentionally not going to touch. @Jdlrobson for any additional opinions.
