Project Page Improvements List[edit]

Here is the start of a list of suggested ways to improve our Project page. If you are interested in tackling one of these tasks insert your username next to that task.

  1. Add a resources bar similar to Wikipedia:WikiProject Mathematics
  2. Create or add relevant images to the page.Maee10 (talk) 05:32, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
  3. Add an article assessment bot. Trejoh (talk) 19:58, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
  4. Move the "articles needing improvement" section to its own page. Trejoh (talk) 00:45, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
  5. Improve the structure for "articles needing improvements".
  6. Create a table under Ongoing Tasks with What/Where headings (See Wikipedia:WikiProject Computer science) JLand13 (talk) 00:56, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
    Create a high priority tasks list under Ongoing Tasks.
    I see you added a "High priority task list" that is currently empty. I think we should leave this out until we think of things to go in it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trejoh (talkcontribs) 00:45, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
    That totally makes sense. I will go ahead and remove it for now. JLand13 (talk) 17:17, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
  7. Create article alerts section DDS6619 (talk)
    I think I have the alerts working. Next we will need to tag articles.DDS6619 (talk)
  8. Redesign the layout of the Project page.
  9. Create a quick links top bar. DDS6619 (talk)
    I'm thinking we should skip this navigation ideas since the page had multiple navigations already. No reason to add to the mix.
  10. Proofread all content on the Project page and related pages and fix typos and such. Marge6914 (talk) 23:56, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
  11. Add user badges to the project page.
  12. Move the "suggested new articles" section to its own page. JLand13 (talk) 19:52, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
  13. Restructuring the 'Organizing HCI-topics' list so that it doesn't scroll so far down in one long list. Maee10 (talk) 21:32, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Organizing HCI-related Topics[edit]

Here is an initial attempt to sort out hci--related topics into categories. Figuring out an agreeable arrangement of these categories may be useful to the project. This initial cut needs lots of help.


I think it might be nice if we had another user badge to choose from for the project. Does anyone with more design chops than I have want to try and create another image/template for the project? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Md gilbert (talkcontribs) 16:49, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

I can give it a try. If others also have logo ideas, perhaps we can have a little contest :) - J-Mo Talk to Me Email Me 21:04, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
I pulled something together. What do you think? - J-Mo Talk to Me Email Me 02:06, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
I like it very much! :-) It shows all the relevant concepts (the human, the computer, and the interaction) in a simple way. That's hard to achieve, good work.
The "computer" part is a little too complex for small sizes. It's hard to distinguish it when scaled down to a thumbnail (which could be useful at user boxes, for example); it has an uncomfortable "squeezing a bug" feeling in it. :-/
Could you try something to reduce complexity, maybe a "simple" version of the logo for small sizes, maybe using bigger circles and only one connector at each size?
I like the new logo too! I agree at small sizes it may be a little squished, it's definitely more visually distinct than the original image. Md gilbert (talk) 00:46, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps what we could do is keep the current logo when the image is shown at full size but just create a simple "HCI" rectangle for small-size logos. That way whoever goes onto our page and sees the small icon knows exactly what we are about. Pnwadventure (talk)
HCI Logo - simple.png
Good idea. The previous logo (File:HCI Logo - simple.png) is exactly what we need for that. Diego (talk) 08:51, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Human Computer Interaction At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

UX job openings at WMF[edit]

Hi, There are currently some job openings in the WMF's UX team, that I thought might be of interest to someone here, or you might know someone to nudge. Hope that helps. :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 01:55, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Requested move 12 September 2017[edit]

– Agreement with Human–computer interaction, Category:Human–computer interaction, MOS:DASH. "Human computer interaction" without the dash implies interaction with a human computer, a totally different subject. PS: There are 11 subpages, plus the project's categories would get moved (a WP:CFR#SPEEDY after the RM).  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  07:27, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

I was going to close this as moved considering the lack of opposition but the title blacklist is preventing me from doing so. Any ideas? Thanks, DrStrauss talk 09:08, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

@SMcCandlish and DrStrauss: I have made the suggested move of the WikiProject page. I have also moved some associated categories, but I found doing so confusing, partly because of there being nested sub-categories, and partly because of my own carelessness, at first using - instead of – and then having to go back an make various corrections. I rather doubt that I have done the job completely. Since it was you two who wanted the move, one or both of you could look at it and make any more moves which are necessary, or, if they too are affected by the blacklist, you could give me a list of the pages which need moving, and then I can do it.

It's weird that a blacklist would be triggered by this stuff at all.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  04:01, 12 October 2017 (UTC)
The remaining categories are listed for speedy renaming at CfD now.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  04:47, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

Separation of presentation and content listed at Requested moves[edit]

Resolved: Page moved to Separation of content and presentation.

A requested move discussion has been initiated for Separation of presentation and content to be moved to Separation of content and presentation.

How randomly social networking sites interact with our random search[edit]

Can we draw patterns from our random searches within social media interactions by assigning topics of self communication. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:35, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
