Invitation to join the Movement Strategy ForumUpraviť

Šablóna:More languages

Hello everyone,

The Movement Strategy Forum (MS Forum) is a multilingual collaborative space for all conversations about Movement Strategy implementation.

We are inviting all Movement participants to collaborate on the MS Forum. The goal of the forum is to build community collaboration, using an inclusive multilingual platform.

The Movement Strategy is a collaborative effort to imagine and build the future of the Wikimedia Movement. Anyone can contribute to the Movement Strategy, from a comment to a full-time project.

Join this forum with your Wikimedia account, engage in conversations, and ask questions in your language.

The Movement Strategy and Governance team (MSG) launched the proposal for the MS Forum in May 2022. There was a 2-month community review period, which ended on 24 July 2022. The community review process included several questions that resulted in interesting conversations. You can read the Community Review Report.

We look forward to seeing you at the MS Forum!

Best regards,

the Movement Strategy and Governance Team

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?Upraviť

 
The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skinUpraviť

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?Upraviť

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our planUpraviť

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

Also, if you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will also gladly answer! See our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (diskusia) 03:14, 22. september 2022 (UTC)

@MNadzikiewicz (WMF): As I have written already, to me the skin has more disadvantages than advantages and I doubt I will use it as my default. The biggest drawback for me is the disorganized interwiki links: having the listed on the side in alphabetical order makes navigation very easy. Clicking on a drop-down menu with unintuitive ordering makes navigation a lot slower. I hardly use the table of content (much less frequently than interwikis). Has any research been done on this wiki? Did you look at the interwiki problem? If the new skin makes tool-scrolling 16% better but interwiki scrolling 60% worse (for example), I do not think the changes are worth it.--Jetam2 (diskusia) 06:54, 22. september 2022 (UTC)
@Jetam2, thanks for the engagement! Let me ping @SGrabarczuk (WMF), as the person responsible for this. Cheers! MNadzikiewicz (WMF) (diskusia) 02:37, 23. september 2022 (UTC)
Hi @Jetam2. Thank you for your comment.
  • We've been working on this skin since 2019; it's been the default on some wikis since 2020. Statistically, in its current state, it is a net improvement already. But there are some tradeoffs that won't work for everyone. We're still working on some details. On your side, currently, you may easily opt-out and never see the skin again. We won't disable Vector legacy. You may also switch back and forth between the skins. You can configure Vector 2022. So, there are many options, and you may change your mind whenever you want.
  • We've done research on a number of wikis, close to 30. These were small and big projects, Wikipedias and sister projects, LTR and RTL scripts - all the variety.
  • Regarding the language switching:
    • The primary goal for moving the list to a button at the top of the page was the problem of readers not knowing that interwiki exist. They would search, say, Carpathians in Slovak instead of going straight to sk:Karpaty. You can learn more about that on this page.
    • The sorting itself is, I admit, arbitrary. That's because there's no Universally Working Solution. Our colleagues, the Language team, have found out that this method is just good enough. In some cases, all you need to do is to type the language code in the language menu search widget, eg. pl or cs.
    • Based on a discussion with some members of the Russian and Ukrainian-language communities, we're considering three other options to keep the button but also make it easier for users like you. You can take part in the discussion here.
