WikipediR[edit]

I see you're the author/maintainer of WikipediR. Just want to let you know how convenient and useful it is. Thanks. Andrew327 04:15, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

(From my other account, since I did it largely in my spare time) @Andrewman327: aw, thanks! Y'know, this is the first piece of feedback I've received on it through my talkpage. Can I ask if you can see any improvements I could make? At the moment I'm thinking on login support for higher API limits, as a big thing. Any bugs you've spotted? Any API parameters or functions you wish were supported that aren't? Ironholds (talk) 05:26, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Suggestion about a user experience issue[edit]

Oliver, I have a suggestion, which may be about page Curation, but if not, the issue is something that I still think you should review.

I saw several items in the CSD log. One is List of Afghanistan ODI wicket-keepers. It is my current opinion that this should not be a CSD (discussion here), but I want to emphasize that the point I am about to make is valid whether or not the CSD is valid.

This edit is what prompted me to look into the Page Curation tool, and to contact you. It appears the nomination was done using Page Curation, it may be the notification was done using Twinkle, or manually.

Checkout what the editor's page looks like: here

Even if those notices are valid, how discouraging. If they aren't valid, even worse.

My simple suggestion: If an editor needs to notify another editor about an issue involving more than n pages (where n might be two or three, but might be one), the editor should leave a single notification, with a bulleted list of relevant pages.

Obviously, this could be implemented manually, but it doesn't sound like a hard task to automate.

Let me know if my suggestion isn't clear, and a mockup of a possible result page would help.

I should close by noting that while I am no longer an active New Page Patroller, I have seen the Page Curation tools, and think they are a great step forward. Kudos to the developers.--S Philbrick(Talk) 16:42, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

That would require the software to have advanced notice of what pages the user wanted to mark for deletion/maintenance/whatnot, however, which the current workflow is not designed around - it's designed for linear rather than grouped patrolling. I imagine that if/when flow is deployed it will become possible to (for example) check if the page already contains a speedy deletion notice of the same class from within N days of [current timestamp] and insert a simpler message if so, but at the moment talk pages are just a mass of wikimarkup; detecting PC notices would be...non-trivial :/. Ironholds (talk) 17:39, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
I understand. Should this be passed along to the Flow people now, or later?--S Philbrick(Talk) 18:52, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
Probably later; no plan survives contact with reality, so what they're actually working on may be very different - and I know the job of building a discussion system on its own is a ton of work, so this'll probably not be highly prioritised if it's brought up before they've got the basics done :).
