mxn added a comment to T173017: [Hackathon doc sprint] Add Wikidata link to more OpenStreetMap Wiki pages.

This proposal would add Wikidata links to taginfo pages as well, based on the links in the infoboxes on the OSM Wiki.

mxn added a comment to T171647: Wikipedia portal: adjust the languages used for Chinese translations.

We created the JSON files in l10n from Module:Project portal/wikis, naming the files based on wiki subdomains (e.g., zh-yue.json). Meanwhile, translatewiki.net lays down JSON files named for ISO 639 codes (hence yue.json). So for some languages, we have some properties in one file and some in another. Had anyone translated the strings into Literary Chinese (lzh) at translatewiki.net, we would’ve had both zh-classical.json and lzh.json for the same wiki.

mxn added a comment to T171647: Wikipedia portal: adjust the languages used for Chinese translations.

The way wm-portal.js handled the Chinese localization was by baking the Traditional Chinese strings into the page, along with Simplified Chinese versions in data-convert-hans and data-converttitle-hans attributes; convertChinese() would then swap in the Simplified Chinese strings if the browser’s language was zh-hans, zh-cn, zh-sg, or zh-my.

@debt, that message means nothing in OpenStreetMap is tagged with the current item’s QID. The map and its overlays are provided by overpass turbo, so the gadget is unable to customize that particular message or add an edit link. It might be a different story if an overpass turbo instance were to run on Toolforge I suppose. ;-)

The two could of course be taken care of together, one with CSS and the other with JavaScript.

I'm a bit confused by the second mockup. Would the sections other than Recommended still be divided by article count, or would it be based on region like in the first mockup? If the latter, perhaps we could attempt to give the largest Wikipedias more prominence in the lists with a darker color or slightly larger size.

mxn added a comment to T987: [Story] Phase 0: Automate interwiki language links for Wiktionary.

The Vietnamese Wiktionary uses redirects for systematic variations involving diacritics, for example xoá to xóa, whereas the English Wiktionary does not. This probably doesn't show up in interwiki stats because the English Wiktionary has relatively few Vietnamese words and the French and Chinese Wiktionaries have little coverage of these variations (which affect maybe a tenth of the overall corpus). On the flip side, automatically normalizing diacritics would be problematic for the same reasons described in T78485.

CSSJanus processes the CSS stylesheet on the server side, whereas the user language is detected later on the client side. MediaWiki is able to use CSSJanus because it serves up a different stylesheet based on the uselang setting rather than the client side language setting.

Correct, the page view metric came about because some wikis were gaming the system. Volapük was the most egregious case in Wikipedia, one that came up repeatedly in discussions; other projects have their own examples. Personally, I have always argued that the page view count, while fairer, was so opaque as to seem arbitrary. I field occasional requests to surface the Dutch Wikipedia in the top 10 based on article count from users who are savvy enough to find the portal's talk page on Meta. For every such user, there must be hundreds or thousands thinking alike.

mxn added a comment to T110070: Investigate moving the www.wikipedia.org portal to Git/Gerrit.

I was hoping to clean up the Lua code a bit and document the workflow a bit better before making any noise about these changes, but I should be clear about my intentions here.

I haven’t completed this task yet; it’s on my backlog but I’ll be getting to it eventually.

My understanding is that the discovery team is open to making the portal a dynamic page, as I have suggested, for enabling automatic article counts. No code has been committed toward that goal, but putting the portal under Git is seen as a necessary first step. I suppose you're saying that we shouldn't cut over until the page is dynamic and fully automated, right?

mxn added a comment to T112173: EPIC: [Portal A/B test 1]: Change the size of search text field and search button on Wikipedia.org.

I noticed that the mockups exclude the Incubator-based language search box (currently below the first horizontal rule). Is that intentional?

@Krinkle, Mys 721tx, @PiRSquared17, @MZMcBride, and @MF-Warburg have all filled in for me during my past wikivacations. Since this change would affect the scope of Meta adminship, I’ve posted to Babel explaining the proposal and soliciting comments.

Now that 239987 has been merged (based on [[m:Special:PermanentLink/13619906]]), does that mean changes need to be pushed there from now on? Or when does the cutover happen? We’re nearing a major milestone (5M articles at en:), so we need to make sure both the portals and the Meta documentation get updated.

Yikes, I step away for a couple days and this issue suddenly gets a lot of traction. :-)

mul isn’t invented: it’s one of several special codes in the ISO 639-2 standard.
