New pages feed - suggestion[edit]

It would be nice if the new pages feed had a date filter (before after or between). Also, given the number of pages per day, being able to specify am/pm or the hour (1-24 in a dropdown) would be a benefit. It would simplify working through the list IMO if it isn't already available.

Hi Cinderella157, this has been requested in phabricator and is tracked at the task above. TonyBallioni (talk) 04:06, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

User:TonyBallioni, thankyou for the feedback. I had a look there. I would endorse the idea of a popup calendar per what I read there. What I didn't see there was the idea of adding a time as well. I haven't programmed for years but I would have thought there would be programming tools (templates)that reduced programming a calendar popup to a single line or two, so all up, it would only be a half-dozen lines of code?

@Cinderella157, While there is currently no solution, I'll note that it is very fast to click through pages in the NPP browser. If you use the 'next' button, you can spam click the button to queue up a hundred or more clicks, and then it will just jump directly to page 100. It only took me about a minute and a half to scroll through the entire list this way, though my mouse isn't happy with me. — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 03:03, 28 December 2017 (UTC)
@Cinderella157 it is even quicker if you set the number of items per page to 100 (bottom left), then you only need about 35 clicks to cycle through half the backlog (and you can start from either end by sorting the articles the other way). — Insertcleverphrasehere (or here) 08:30, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Proposal to overhaul the default tutorial[edit]

I've put up a proposal at the Village Pump to replace the old WP:I and WP:T with the superior Help:Intro. Any opinions welcomed there. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 02:56, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
