AFT5 newsletter[edit]

Hey again all :). So, some big news, some small news, some good news, some bad news!

On the "big news" front; we've now deployed AFT5 on to 10 percent of articles, This is pretty awesome :). On the "bad news", however, it looks like we're having to stop at 10 percent until around September - there are scaling issues that make it dangerous to deploy wider. Happily, our awesome features engineering team is looking into them as we speak, and I'm optimistic that the issues will be resolved.

For both "small" and "good" news; we've got another office hours session. This one is tomorrow, at 22:00 UTC in #wikimedia-officeconnect - I appreciate it's a bit late for Europeans, but I wanted to juggle it so US east coasters could attend if they wanted :). Hope to see you all there!

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cat bell, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Collar (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

WP:BRD[edit]

Please review WP:BRD. When your Bold edit has been Reverted by another editor, the next step, if you continue to think the edit is necessary, is to Discuss it on the article talk page, not to re-revert it, which is the first step to edit warring. During the discussion, the article remains in the status quo ante. Thanks, BMK (talk) 15:31, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

@Beyond My Ken: I made three changes in one edit: 1) Add link to Cross-gender acting 2) Add link to Womanless wedding 3) Changed formatting to use template "Div col" instead of "col-begin"/"col-break". Are you opposing all three of these changes? --Bensin (talk) 17:28, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
"Cross-gender acting" is acceptable. "Womanless wedding" is, for all intents and purposes, meaningless and should be deleted. The column formatting is better the way it was. BMK (talk) 21:49, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
Strike that about "womanless wedding", my mistake, I didn't realize it was referring to an historical type of event. If there's an alternate name for it, though, it would be better, because prima facie it seems like just another way of saying "gale male marriage". So the upshot is, it's only the formatting of the columns I object to. BMK (talk) 22:00, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
@Beyond My Ken: Great! I made another edit re-adding links to Cross-gender acting and Womanless wedding and keeping the formatting of the columns the way you like it. --Bensin (talk) 23:15, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good, thanks. When I get back home from where I am, I'd like to research the "womanless wedding" concept more - it's fascinating. BMK (talk) 13:13, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
