Gender survey


I have been randomly selected (on enwiki) to participate in the gender distribution survey. I don't want to answer it. I don't even want to interact with it. There's no collapse bar and no way do get rid of the survey. How long should I expect the survey to be around, and is there any way to be rid of it? Additionally, is there any way to opt out of such surveys in the future? Other members of the community have raised concerns at Research talk:Surveys on the gender of editors. As the contact person for this survey, you may wish to answer their concerns there. Schetm (talk) 02:06, 6 August 2019 (UTC)Reply

Plant puzzle


I just noticed the photo on https://isaacjoh.com/ and it's cool! Is it on Commons too? Nemo 08:06, 25 September 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Nemo bis: thanks! A friend 3D-printed it for me almost two years ago and I'm happy to say that the plant continues to live. I added it to Commons -- glad you like it: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia_Plant.jpg --Isaac (WMF) (talk) 19:09, 27 September 2020 (UTC)Reply

WikiNav - full page list


My thanks to you and your colleagues for building WikiNav. It will be especially useful for requested moves involving disambiguation, where we can gauge a primary topic by measuring clicks from the page readers land on to the page they wanted. Please could the final two tables have an option to show all incoming and outgoing pages with 10+ clicks? Sometimes the pair we're interested in is not in the top ten for either page. If HTML size is a concern, a plain list would be as useful as a pretty table for this purpose. I use a crude tool to do this locally, but it requires a wasteful 400 MB download to recover the crucial 100 bytes of information and the results are hard to share. Thanks, Certes (talk) 15:02, 21 November 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the ping Certes and glad you're finding it useful! I documented the request on Phabricator for Portal namespace (TT296359) and showing more results on Github. Currently the tool is just being maintained as it was primarily developed by an intern but as more requests come in, we might explore what it would mean to make some updates. If you have coding experience, feel free to get involved. In the meantime, though the tool doesn't surface the information, you can still access it via the APIs that support the tool. For the Chocolate article, the full list of sources (https://wikinav.wmcloud.org/api/v1/en/Chocolate/sources/latest?limit=175) and destinations (https://wikinav.wmcloud.org/api/v1/en/Chocolate/destinations/latest?limit=175). --Isaac (WMF) (talk) 23:59, 23 November 2021 (UTC)Reply



Hi, would it be possible for you to put // <pre> at the top and // </pre> at the bottom of the top comments block in en:User:Isaac (WMF)/quality viz.js and en:User:Isaac (WMF)/clickstream viz.js? Those pages are generating entries in en:Special:WantedTemplates. You could also use <nowiki>...</nowiki> or <syntaxhighlight>...</syntaxhighlight>. By putting the tags inside of comments, it will not impact the functionality, but will prevent the backend software from showing your pages in en:Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Title: string, views: number. Thanks! Plastikspork (talk) 15:27, 1 January 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Plastikspork: thanks for letting me know (was unaware of that page) -- should be fixed now. --Isaac (WMF) (talk) 14:36, 4 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
