3 maj 2022: Förhandsvisningar i realtid för partnerprojekt

We have launched a version of the Realtime preview feature to Polish Wikipedia. Its community has agreed to partner with us and give us feedback on how to improve it before we launch to the rest of the users. Please find our complete Release Plan. Läs mer

This feature touches one of the most used editors (Wikitext 2010) across wiki projects. We've thus decided to roll it out as a Beta Feature before we release the feature to everyone. This will allow us to collect feedback and make improvements before we release to everyone.

We are partnering with users early on to understand behavior on the new tool and make improvements. Depending on the user’s connection, we are aiming to observe and evaluate patterns regarding the automatic and manual reloads of the preview pane, as follows:

  • Automatic reload: Debounce time. When the preview pane is automatically reloading, is our debounce time sufficient to provide a fluid experience?
  • Automatic reload: Discoverability of the manual reload button. When the preview pane is automatically reloading, is the manual reload button that appears while hovering over the preview pane easy to find?

and/or

  • Manual reload: Discoverability/Display time of the manual reload status bar. When the preview pane is NOT reloading automatically, the user will see a status bar inviting them to manually reload. Is the discoverability of the bar sufficient? Is the status bar obstructive to the users’ workflows?

We will aim to observe both of these scenarios for users with stable high-speed internet connections. In both cases, we will be performing the test on two pages: one short article without images (for faster reload time) and another one with a large content and multimedia assets (for slower reload time).

Aside from our main investigation, we will also be observing the following during our screen-sharing sessions with users:

  • Discoverability of the overall feature: although users will be notified of the existence of the realtime preview feature, and the potential relationship between the latter and the "Show preview" feature.
  • User screen sizes- This data could be helpful to understand how useful the Realtime Preview is for folks with a smaller screen. Does this make their experience too crowded?
  • Usage of syntax highlighting/Code Mirror
  • Understanding that both panes do not have a synced scrolling behavior.

If you would like to give us any feedback on any of the open questions above, please reach out to us in the talk page as we are eager to hear about the usability of this new feature. Thanks for building with us!

8 november 2021: Varna när man länkar till förgreningar

We have an update about the wish. We have finished user tests. Läs mer

Hello everyone,

Many thanks for your great support and feedback on the proposed user experience and designs for this wish. This update is regarding the usability testing, which was conducted in parallel with community members on the talk page, as well as the first “Talk to Us hours” video call last September. Thanks again for your valuable inputs!

The goal of this round of usability tests was to determine if our proposed designs were successful in warning users about the potential risks of adding a link to disambiguated page in the 2010 wikitext editor without inhibiting users from continuing to edit. We conducted the test on usertesting.com with 5 editors total.

Here are the insights we gathered from the tests:

  • 2/3 of users successfully noticed the new notification warning them about the disambiguation link they added. Two users were not able to see the notifications due to complications with the testing interface and instructions.
  • All users who saw the notification found it helpful and easy to understand. When users noticed the disambiguation notification and understood its purpose, most of them stated that it was useful without being disruptive to their edit flow.

Acknowledgments: This test was conducted on beta-wiki with a limited content pages. Before we could push some recent user experience and engineering improvements for this wish, including the new link selector widget for the Wikitext editor. We are hoping that these changes will mitigate some of the difficulties encountered by the users during this usability test.

Not all of these editors from this panel are experienced users. Although this wish is intended to be helpful for every user – we assume that less experienced editors will tend to use the VisualEditor over the wikitext editor, thus making this new feature less relevant for them.

We are grateful for your feedback on this talk page and the Talk to Us for our team to get a better understanding of your needs as experienced contributors. Thanks so much for your feedback on the talk page!

2 november 2021: Realtidsförhandsgranskning i wikitext

Thank you for your comments on the talk page, as well as the latest "Talk to Us" video call. Also, we have conducted usability testing. We are sharing the most important findings. Läs mer Hello everyone,

Many thanks for your support and great feedback on the proposed designs. Thank you for comments on the talk page, as well as the latest "Talk to Us" video call. We have learned more about how experienced users edit.

Also, we have conducted usability testing on the usertesting.com platform. 5 editors took part. Below you will find some of the findings and insights:

  • Half of the users found the new "Preview" button in the toolbar. One of the reasons for this could be behavioral patterns developed over the existing "Show preview" button in the footer of the editor box. We are designing a low-friction pulsating dot with a guide popup. We hope this will make it easier to notice the new feature.
  • All users found the existing "show preview" button.
  • All users understood the difference between both buttons. One could be used while editing (offering a quick glimpse at the output). The other could be more helpful for proofreading before publishing the changes.
  • One user reported that it might always be easy to understand the relationship between the Wikitext input and the preview output. To mitigate this, we are exploring ways to highlight the text in both panes and align the scrolling or editing behavior.

Acknowledgments:

  • Not all of these editors are experienced users. Although this wish is intended to be helpful for every user – we assume that less experienced editors will tend to use the Visual Editor over the wikitext editor. This will make the new feature less relevant for them.
  • We are also working on improving the scaling of both panes. We want to allow for optimal support to both small and ultra-wide displays alike.

Again, thanks so much for your feedback!

19 oktober 2021: Avböja önskningar från Bibliographic Bot

Önskans titel: Bibliographic Bot

Undersökningens Phabricator-ärende

Önskningsrang: #14

Sammanfattning av orsak: Arbetets omfattning är för stor, inte tillräckligt med röster

Vi har bestämt att avböja detta projekt. Detta gjorde vi efter noggrant övervägande och omfattande genomgångar inom gruppen och konversationer med andra team på WMF och filialer.

Resonemang: Först undersökte våra ingenjörer och designers omfattningen av arbetet som uppgetts i önskningen (T243150). Vi har kommit fram till att bara arbetet i sig långt överskrider vår ursprungliga bedömning.

Det kan verka enkelt att reproducera Citoid-beteende från Wikidata, och på grund av detta fick önskningen ett högt betyg i vår prioriteringsprocess. Vi utgick från att det innebar en låg komplexitet från ett tekniskt och designperspektiv så vi kunde återanvända kod och design. Citat på Wikidata måste dock länkas som referenser till andra objekt i databasen. Detta ökar komplexiteten betydligt.

Önskningen hamnade inte bland de topp 10 populäraste önskningarna. Den landade på #14. Vi hade fel i vår inledande bedömning. Faktum är att Wikidata/Wikimedia Deutschland har arbetat på denna önskning i flera månader. Den slutgiltiga lösningen är givet de för tillfället tillgängliga resurserna för invecklad. Detta skulle ta Community Tech-arbetslaget flera månader att uppnå och det finns andra mer populära önskningar som vi kommer arbeta på istället.

4 september 2021: Realtidsförhandsgranskning i wikitext

We have made progress working on the Real Time Preview for Wikitext tool. We have two questions about its design. We invite you to answer on the project talk page. Läs mer

Thank you for your feedback

Hello all, we are back with an update on the proposed designs for this wish. Thanks for all of your comments on the talk page. We heard what you said and synthesized the feedback as follows:

  • The button to preview the wikitext output should be more intuitive, the person clicking it should know what it does.
  • The button to preview the text should be in the toolbar.

We then took a second try at creating the following set of designs. We are proposing a new button appears in the toolbar:

 

We are proposing than when user previews the content, the preview button label remains "blue" to indicate that the preview state is on, and activated:

 

The preview button would turn back to black if users toggle it off and the preview would disappear.

Horizontal vs Vertical

Please note that these proposed designs are illustrative. We only included a vertical version because we are currently investigating if the ability to have a wide screen will still be an option given the planned and upcoming work on Web desktop improvements which would limit the page to 960px in width, making it too cluttered to have a horizontal view.

Open Questions: We want to hear from you!

  • Does the new button placement seem more intuitive to the workflows in the toolbar?
  • Does the current proposed layout feel like there is enough space to view both the wikitext and the output?

Thanks so much for your continued feedback on the talk page!

27 augusti 2021: Realtidsförhandsgranskning i wikitext

We are making initial steps on the Real Time Preview for Wikitext tool. We have questions about its design. We invite you to answer on the project talk page. Läs mer

Proposed Designs

Horizontal Desktop Layout

A new button will appear. This gives editors the option to preview the text on the side in real-time:

 

Note: The pink box above is just to draw attention to the button, it will not actually appear to users.

Editors will be able to click on the button highlighted above. If they do that, the following layout would allow them to preview the output in a scrollable fixed container:

 

Vertical Desktop Layout

The following new user interface element will appear when a user has a vertical desktop screen:

 

Note: The pink box above is just to draw attention to the button, it will not actually appear to users.

Editors will be able to click on the button highlighted above. If they do that, the following layout would allow them to preview the output in a scrollable fixed container:

 

The engineers have begun work on these changes. We are introducing the changes inside of MediaWiki core. We'd love to hear your thoughts on our proposed designs. We'd especially love feedback on:

  • Making the copy and button placements intuitive
  • The overall feel of the proposed designs

We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts on our proposed designs and any other considerations!

Open Questions: We want to hear from you!

The solutions above are proposed and in early stages. We'd love to hear your feedback on the talk page. Your insight can help us understand other approaches, risks, and solutions.

These are our questions to you:

  • How do you think this will influence the way you edit?
  • Does the icon on the expand button prepare the editors to understand what it does? Is it distrupting?

20 augusti 2021: Undersökningen gemenskapens önskelista 2022 kommer ske i januari

Hej allesammans!

Vi hoppas ni alla har mår bra och är så trygga som möjligt i dessa tider! Vi vill dela några nyheter om en ändring i underökningen för gemenskapens önskelista 2022. Vi vill också höra vad du tycker.

Vi kommer köra gemenskapens önskelista 2022 i januari 2022. Vi behöver mer tid att arbeta på 2021 års önskningar. Vi behöver också mer tid att förbereda vissa ändringar av önskelistan för 2022. Under tiden kan du använda en tillägnad sandlåda för att skicka in tidiga idéer för 2022 års önskningar.

Förslag och uppfyllelser av önskningar kommer ske samma år

Tidigare har gemenskapens teknikteam kört undersökningen för gemenskapens önskelista för kommande år i november året innan. Vi körde exempelvis önskelistan från 2021 i november 2020. Det fungerade väl för några år sedan. Vid den tidpunkten brukade vi arbeta på önskelistan strax efter att resultaten från omröstningen publicerats.

2021 uppstod det däremot ett glapp mellan omröstningen och när vi kunde börja arbeta på nya önskningar. Fram till 2021 arbetade vi på önskningar från önskelistan från 2020.

Vi hoppas att önskelistan 2022 i januari 2022 kommer vara mer intuitiv. Detta kommer ge oss mer tid på att uppfylla fler önskningar från 2021 års önskelista.

Uppmuntra bredare deltagande från historiskt uteslutna gemenskaper

Vi funderar på hur vi kan göra det enklare att delta i önskelistan. Vi vill stödja fler översättningar, och uppmuntra underutrustade gemenskaper att vara mer aktiva. Vi skulle vilja ha lite tid att göra dessa ändringar.

En ny plats för att diskutera med oss om prioriteringar och önskningar som ännu inte uppfyllts

Vi kommer att ha gått 365 dagar utan en önskelista. Vi uppmuntrar dig att ta kontakt. Vi hoppas du hör av dig på diskussionssidan, men vi hoppas också att du deltar i vårt Prata med oss-möte som hålls varannan månad! Dessa kommer hållas på två olika tider för att passa olika tidszoner.

Vi påbörjar vårt första möte 15 september 23:00 UTC. Fler detaljer om agendan och inramningen kommer snart!

Idéstorm och förslag till utkast före förslagsfasen

Har du några tidiga idéer på önskningar kan du använda önskelistans nya sandlåda. På så sätt glömmer du inte detta innan januari 2022. Du kommer kunna komma tillbaka och fila på dina idéer. Kom ihåg att redigeringar i sandlådan inte räknas som önskningar!

Återkoppling

  • Hur skulle önskelistan kunna förbättras?
  • Hur skulle du vilja använda vår nya sandlåda?
  • Vilka risker ser du, om några, med vårt beslut att ändra datumet för önskelistan 2022?
  • Vad skulle hjälpa mer folk att delta i önskelistan 2022?

Svara på diskussionssidan (på vilket språk du vill) eller på våra Prata med oss-möten.

18 augusti 2021: Varna när man länkar till förgreningar

We have moved forward with the design. We would like you to answer our questions. Läs mer

Progress with the design

Hello everyone, and thanks to those of you who have been active on our talk page and tested the proof of concept script for displaying a warning. We have moved forward with designing for the last two requirements in our proposed solutions and wanted to share them with you so that we could hear your input!

As an Editor using the link toolbar to search for knowledge to reference in my article, I can:

  • See a warning before publishing if I have introduced a disambiguation link in my article
  • Visibly differentiate disambiguation links as a different type of content than articles that come up on my suggestions

For the first solution above, we are proposing displaying this yellow box warning when wikitext users add a link:

 

For the second solution above, we are proposing changing the copy to better describe what a disambiguation page means in the wikitext link button and in the visual editor link pop-up:

 

 

Open questions

We'd love to hear your thoughts on our proposed designs. We'd especially love feedback on:

  • Making the copy accessible and making it easier to glean what a disambiguation page is
  • Making sure the warning for wikitext editors feels preventative without coming off as discouraging-- editors should still be able to publish even if they have introduced faulty links

We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts on our proposed designs!

5 augusti 2021: Radera/återställa associerad diskussionssida

We have completed our first investigation. You can track this inside this ticket on Phabricator. The bulk of the work here will be around security and performance considerations. We estimate tackling this work within the coming months. Läs mer

2 augusti 2021: Varna när man länkar till förgreningar

We have completed our first part of the wish. As a result, we will release a new change in a few days. Thank you for all the comments you have given. Läs mer

The first part is about the following improvement:

As an Editor using the link toolbar to search for knowledge to reference in my article, I can see specific articles as the first search results.

This effects the link search function in VisualEditor and the 2017 wikitext editor.

The change should go live this week. In the meantime, if you would like to preview the changes, you can try it out on the beta cluster. For instance, when adding a link and you type out the term "New York", New York City and New York (state) appear above the disambiguation page New York in the search results.

We are looking forward to hearing your feedback!

After this change is released, we will be monitoring the numbers inside The Daily Disambig to see if it has any impact on the number of unwanted dab links being added (thanks for pointing us in the direction of this page).

23 juli 2021: Varna när man länkar till förgreningar

We have begun design planning on this wish. Our designer, NAyoub is working on setting up some user tests where we ask new editors to link from the Jupiter article to the Mars article and see if they fall for the disambiguated page since it's the first result. We will take notes and write up next steps based on the results. Our engineers are also investigating the feasibility of moving search results for disambiguated terms to the bottom of the results.

16 juli 2021: Klistra-kopiera skillnader

We are making initial steps on the Copy paste diffs tool. We have questions about its design. We invite you to answer on the project talk page. Läs mer

Engineering investigation

We have begun the engineering investigation for this work inside this Phabricator ticket. We are optimistic in the solutions we've found to fix this problem.

Video demonstrating copy and paste interactions for diff selection

Open questions

  • In which contexts do users usually copy and paste from diffs?
  • What syntax manifests itself as intrusive? Is there any syntax that would be desirable to keep in the clipboard?
  • What feedback do you have on our proposed solution?

15 juli 2021: Statusrapportering

There have been and will be changes to our team. We have made decisions what will be the sequence of wishes we will be working on. We would like you to learn more about our methodology. There are reasons why the voting is not the only criterion. Please tell us what you think about it. Läs mer
