SamanthaNguyen closed T65: Decide on what settings and extensions are eligible for inclusion as Resolved.

For what we're concerned of, this has been basically resolved on the internal wiki - this can also be dynamically determined by checking if the configuration is public or private. Also see {T227} (private task)

SamanthaNguyen closed T223: Rename my account as Wontfix.

Unfortunately we don't support renaming accounts, and probably won't for a while. Global renaming is only a feature in MediaWiki that exists as a sub-extension of CentralAuth, but we don't use CentralAuth for supporting our global user base, as it's designed specifically for Wikimedia's infrastructure (meaning it has Wikimedia-specific code).

I've only seen one request so far interested, so I'm going to decline this. The better route would be to look into merging parts of HAWelcome into NewUserMessage first, as mentioned by @jack above. Not very important though. If more requests pop up, then maybee

SamanthaNguyen added a comment to T217: Consider adding NewUserMessage to our extension request whitelist.

Well, just in case if this means anything, Echo supports a notification for edits made for the very first time. It doesn't require us having to manually delete it on our side. The message is located at notification-header-thank-you-1-edit, so it's technically customisable. Here's a screenshot:

SamanthaNguyen added a comment to T67: Redesign the Homepage.
  • After reading through this task, it looks like no one mentioned whether or not we want a wiki-editable main page or a splash page (like Brickimedia's old splash page). Splash page gives more freedom but obviously more, long-term maintenance work. What do others think we should have? I think we can try out both, since it won't hurt to try either.
  • Colors: We can create our color palette by using some the colors that the Aurora skin has, with modifications as needed - consistency is important. (Although, I'll be honest here, I don't particularly like the black as the primary color since it's such a strong color and thus distracts away from the most important thing, which is content. This is something for another discussion though).
  • Languages: Although i18n is a nice-to-have, at least in my view this is sorta low-priority compared to the rest.
  • Pictures: From what I've seen, there seems to be quite a bit of wikis that don't have their own logo, so doing this would be sort of a problem.
  • {{FEATUREDUSER}}, {{FEATUREDARTICLE}}, and {{WIKINEWS}}, and {{FEATUREDLOGO}} by @mgagemorgan: While that idea as a concept is cool, this entirely depends on us picking something out of a list to decide what should be featured (or we can use the API to pick something randomly, although I imagine that could potentially be an expensive query? Personally, I don't know much about performance + SQL).
    • As for wiki News: Is it the same type of news we have on our page? That shouldn't be that much of a problem. What's something that users are interested in? (If we're referring to cross-wiki news, well, that's obviously a lot more work, and requires a team of good, dedicated writers who are able to keep up with the communities on this platform, which there's a lot of; something we currently don't have).
  • Piwik stuff: I'm not familiar with the API, but if it's of interest, then here's a link: https://developer.piwik.org/api-reference/reporting-api
  • Sidebar idea: Maybe, that sounds interesting. This would be the place for secondary information - stuff that's not as important as other info. Now, what do we consider secondary information?
  • Tiles idea by @Bouncepaw: So this is possible with pure CSS actually, using the flex box model. Although, it's somewhat complicated (but of course, still possible). Check https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/a-guide-to-flexbox/ on how it works. Another thing to point out though is it's compatibility across browsers: It's completely unsupported for IE9 and only partial support for IE10 and IE11 + luckily it's supported in Edge though. Check http://caniuse.com/#feat=flexbox for the full details. This doesn't match MediaWiki's browser compatibility matrix, which is what we generally try to be consistent with. So realistically speaking, we'd probably have to use JS and possibly pick an existing library.

SamanthaNguyen updated subscribers of T164: Aurora skin uses data URIs for gradients instead of using CSS gradients.

Any thoughts on this @isarra? btw, here's the gradients that I managed to create after converting them to CSS (the #head and #foot needs borders but the gradients can be modified again to keep the psuedo-border, or we can also use the border property too)

#head {
	background: #737373;
	background: -moz-linear-gradient( top, #737373 0%, #2a2a2a 100% );
