srishakatux updated subscribers of T211638: Develop EventLogging schema for documentation feedback gadget.

Ideally, we want to collect users votes on a document and page ids associated with it. Based on this, I've created a first draft of the schema here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:SSethi_(WMF)/Sandbox/user_feedback_schema.json.

srishakatux added a comment to T195119: Create user feedback gadget for technical documentation on Wikitech pages.

For background research, I looked into existing gadgets or extensions around rating/voting and found a couple interesting ones:

  • Extension:ArticleFeedback5 - Made a lot of progress with different iterations before it was disabled on Wikimedia wikis in ~2013. The extension was disabled a) due to philosophical reasons and b) there weren’t more resources to put in development efforts. It supported anonymous data collection and for that relied heavily on AbuseFliter extension. The work on AbuseFilter was on halt for a while. Also, it wasn't clear how to handle the amount of data collected via the extension and how to use it. There were some major bugs with the archiving process too.

Thanks, @Martyav! Your proposal looks great. A few minor comments:

  • In the summary part, you have mentioned about your current work with microtasks. Instead, here you could include the project summary.
  • Links welcome in the deliverable section where relevant (e.g. link to the demo app on Github in place of my name :)). Same in the Participation section too, provide a link to Github repo.
  • You can remove this question: "We advise all candidates eligible for Google Summer of Code and Outreachy to apply for both programs. Are you planning to apply to both programs and, if so, with what organization(s)?". This is applicable only when Outreachy takes place in summer alongside GSoC.
  • Lastly about the project title -- you could consider rephrasing the first part to "Improving ~20 documentation pages and creating a demo app.." as that sounds more reasonable :)

Since last year, tools listed in the documentation have received new updates and features. There are also a few tools like Gitter (that was previously not open source but has recently become), Discourse and others that are missing from the page. This task is about updating the documentation for existing tools, add documentation for new tools, and modify the conclusion section.

[Folks considering to submit their application for the Outreachy program] It would be ideal if you publish the first draft of your proposal on Phabricator by October 22nd. That way we will get some time to review your proposals and give you early feedback that you can then incorporate before the deadline. Also, remember to record contributions on Outreachy website and upload the proposal in a format required on the Outreachy site as well.

  1. I have added the information in the "Other links" section, at "Additional notes" and I was wondering if it would have been better to add it as an example as well.

Yes, others links should be added as an example.

@VirginiaBalseiro @Didicodes @Itskoda Thanks all for working on the API pages. I've left some suggestions on the talks pages in your Sandbox:

@srishakatux thank you for your reply! One more question: after we're done, should we submit our sandbox to you for review and wait before marking the "done" column?

@VirginiaBalseiro Yes, that's right! 'Done' would be when your changes are integrated into MediaWiki mainspace :-)

Hi Srishti! I'm doing my research here about the assert uses, and I see that in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=help there's information about assert but I can't find how I make the link to redirect to the exact point in the page where assert is mentioned, since assert isn't exactly a module, more like a variable. Is there anywhere that I can find a way to do this? Thanks :)

However, I have another question. The first sentence in the API:Account creation page 👉 You can create accounts using the API, seems
ambiguous to me, I feel it does not clearly state the specific type of API in question.

Please I need clarification on this. Thanks

Hi Srishti! I have a few questions regarding this task:

I took the template and filled it out with the information in the existing docs:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:VirginiaBalseiro/Sandbox/API:Emailuser

However in the existing docs there are other sections, don't they get included in the new docs? (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Emailuser, parameters, token, checking emailable status.)
