White icons in dark mode[edit]

Hello and thanks for your work, Could you add class=skin-invert-image to icons in future News so that their colors be inverted in dark mode? (See mw:Recommendations for night mode compatibility on Wikimedia wikis#Apply filters to dark images with transparent background) Thanks, Escargot bleu (talk) 07:15, 25 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I updated the manual. Escargot bleu (talk) 07:20, 25 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thank you! Your edit covers most of it. I've updated the other two spots (generic, and next week's draft). I appreciate your note, your edit, and the details. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:30, 25 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Quiddity (WMF), please also take note of my edit there. I think it wasn’t the intention that these images should be ignored by users using screen reader software, if it was, then my edit can be reverted. stjn[ru] 23:17, 27 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
If you read the MediaWiki page carefully, for these icons this can be simplified to |class=skin-invert since they don’t have a caption. stjn[ru] 23:20, 27 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
The reason I prefer skin-invert-image is that it always works, so people doing copy-pastes without understanding how it works won't have any issue. Escargot bleu (talk) 14:04, 28 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Survey on limesurvey.net[edit]

Page Tech/News/2024/29 is translated into 14 languages. Czech translation is completed, but the survey does not offer the creation of a Czech translation at all. Why? Or better: Where we can do it? -- Want (talk) 15:43, 15 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Want Hi, sorry about that. I requested translation assistance via the translators-l@ mailing list 10 days before the survey was first launched. Then everything that was translated at Tech/News/Reader survey 2024, I copy & pasted into LimeSurvey just before sending Tech News that week. In hindsight, I also should've mentioned it here.
Unfortunately the survey is only officially open for 3 more days (though I'll likely leave it till the end of the week), but if you wish to add translations there, I can still copy them across, then ping you once that's ready, and you could possibly help encourage more Czech responses with the updated link? Up to you. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 02:51, 16 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Unfortunately, I don't have time to translate now. I have a dentist appointment coming up. Those who want to, must fill in the questionnaire in a language they understand. Thanks for the your effort. -- Want (talk) 05:12, 16 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
I’ve set Tech/News/Reader survey 2024 to discouraged in the translation system to make it clear that new translations won’t be included anymore. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 17:15, 16 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
