@SerDIDG do you mean Facebook (rather than Youtube)? Both Facebook and Twitter use an image of sunflowers as their banner. I agree both should be the same for consistency -- whether it remains the sunflowers or we decide to use some other image.
The background banner on the MediaWiki Twitter page remains a photo of sunflowers for now. Do we want to change this image to capture the spirit and colors of the new logo?
@srishakatux can you change the logo on the Facebook page?

Hey @elukey I just wanted to touch base to see how you are coming along with this. Let me know how I can support you!
@srishakatux Yes! This seems like a good blog post!

Hey hey! This sounds like a great idea for a blog post (or two)! It is perfectly fine to plan for more than one post.

Perfect! I plan on publishing this tomorrow 9 March 2021.
Hey hey ~ I found some images of keys and locks. Let me know if any of these would work:
Mar 8 2021
Perfect! I will move this over to the tech blog to prepare for publication.

Wow! Good catch! Goes to show that you can't rely on spell-check alone!

@MoritzMuehlenhoff and @jbond I have done an additional passthrough of the post. It looks good so far! I made some suggestions for grammar and style changes. Can you look through them and accept or decline?
Thanks for catching that!. I'm not sure what happened, but I republished from draft, and you should see it now!

Great! I'm looking forward to reading it!

@Krinkle Pinging about the licensing info. I want to make sure that Perfplanet allows for the reposting of articles originally published there, but I don't see any information on the site. Do you know?
Feb 23 2021
@Krinkle This looks great! I should be able to get it up and posted in the next couple of days.
@Isaac and I are working on a proposal focused on improving technical documentation to create a series of notebook-based tutorials on PAWS that help users access and work with data on Wikimedia projects.

Thanks for creating this task! As discussed, I'll prep this for publication on the tech blog. We'll just need to decide on the date for publication!
@apaskulin I took a last look over the draft this morning. It looks good! I think the only thing it is missing is a screenshot.

@Andrew I published this. Can you look it over and let me know if it looks good to you before I announce widely? https://techblog.wikimedia.org/2021/02/05/cinder-on-cloud-vps/

Sounds good. I'm going to format the three lists as tables in the post. I'll move this over to the blog, and it should be published tomorrow (February 4) or Friday (February 5).
Feb 2 2021
The other option would be a graphic. This could take a bit longer to create and format. Here's a quick mockup to get an idea. This can be tweaked with different colors/elements.
@Andrew Thanks for this! I will take a look at the draft and provide some suggestions!

Created to test link. It worked! Resolved.
Ah! Yay! I fixed the "h"! Sorry about that! I'll share this out now!
@egardner and @AnneT I just published this https://techblog.wikimedia.org/2021/01/22/2020-the-year-in-vue/
No problem! I'll be ready to post it when you are!

Great! I have updated the post with this text! Have a good weekend!

@Nuria Hey hey ~ That is the summary, which I can't suppress. I can put different text in there though if you have a couple of sentences you think would best summarize the article; let me know, and I'll add them.
Also, posts in the tech blog all have a main feature image at the top? Is this something you want to pick? I can choose something if not. Here are the image guidelines: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_technical_blog_editorial_guidelines#Images_used_in_your_post
We don't have a plugin for footnotes, but I'm pretty confident I can do them manually with anchors.
Thanks! I took a look, and (what a delight!) this was really well written with only some tiny grammar issues. Great work on this! I made a couple of suggestions -- if you can accept them. Then I can move this over to the blog to prepare for publication.
@egardner I requested edit access for the doc if you can please grant it to me. I only suggest edits and leave comments, so you will be able to review and accept them.
Thanks, @ssingh! I've addressed these issues. I did have to replace the formula with an actual image, as the formatting was not copying over from the doc, and I wasn't able to format it correctly as text in the blog. Let me know if this looks okay to you!
Jan 14 2021
Okay, I'm going to call it a derivative of this logo (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg) and attribute the image with the censored label to you @mforns.
@Nuria this is now ready to go. And I can publish it tomorrow (Friday) -- I just need a little more info about the images.
Thanks @egardner (sorry about the delay). I will take a look at this and provide some suggestions and copyedits.
https://techblog.wikimedia.org/2021/01/14/2020-coolest-tool-awards-thank-you-for-the-tools/ This is posted. Let me know if it looks good, and I will share it out.
@Jhernandez thanks! The post is great! I made some changes to grammar/style for consistency. Can you accept these? Then, I can move this over to the blog for publication
@Jhernandez I am copyediting this today. Can you give me the license information for the 3 images in the post? We try to include the title (w/link to the original image when possible), creator, and license with each image.
