Study:Flagged Revisions[edit]

Hi, I have provided some feedback on my user talk page. Cheers.--GlimmerPhoenix (talk) 13:55, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

Publicity Ideas for the Replay Edit tool[edit]

Would you have ideas on getting the word out about the tool ? Some of the ideas I have are:

  • Another video like the Umlaut edit visualisation.
  • Using the slider in some other simple tools ( has the code to the slider as a separate component, the code is old and has not yet been updated with the code being used in the replay edits tool currently).
  • Seeding it with other users who might be interested ?
  • By Copying "importScript( 'User:Jeph_paul/common.js' );importStylesheet( 'User:Jeph_Paul/common.css' );" into your common.js it can be used as a userscript.

Could you send me a mail so that we can start a conversation on this :-)--Jeph paul (talk) 19:14, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Screenshot of "Replay edits" with user script
Hi Jeph paul!
  • I think another video with the new replay version is a good idea, videos are probably the easiest way to present the tool to other users.
  • I tested the user script, but the play button didn't show up. See screenshot (i made you a new commons:Category:Replay Edits). The problem could be hard to locate, HTTPS? java script? Should i try the mwloader instead of importScript?
  • Asking other users to test is a good idea. I can "seed" on german Wikipedia, if you like ;-) Do you have some ideas for specific questions? How open are you for the inevitable additional feature requests (flying pink unicorn that shits rainbows)?
I think the replayer is a great tool to show people that Wikipedia editing is not a black box operation, and actually not that difficult. All the best --Atlasowa (talk) 18:09, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Atlasowa

  • Thank you for the offer to seed it on german wikipedia & sorry for getting back this late. The tool has support for multiple languages now & also has il8n support. I have added some german phrases I got from google translate (Have only added german translations, wasn't sure if google translate would give me accurate results, but the user can access articles from all the listed language wikipedia's).Also added a suggestion dropdown as you type the article name (This should be useful I guess).
  • I'll take a look at the userscript & fix it.
  • Th idea behind asking q's was to know if there would be a usecase for the cases like last 20 edits etc you mentioned. (My UX friend is busy with her work, but we'll get the ball rolling on this.)
  • Made a few UI fixes like adding the arrows between the steps in the homepage. Shall we go ahead and sees it on the german wiki while making the UI/UX other changes paralelly ?

Revamping the View History tab[edit]

What would it take to revamp the View History tab, in terms of community consensus? If we came up with a plan with layout & feature set would it be accepted? Are there plans already on doing this? Is someone working on them? The replay edits tool could be a part of it, we could probably use the graph or other pieces from it. --Jeph paul (talk) 19:25, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

Fwd: $wgMFAnonymousEditing = true is sometimes not respected: cache?[edit]

Hi, I filed your observation there. Thanks for looking into the matter! Please login on phabricator. --Nemo 08:12, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

I won't participate at phabricator because it demands my emailaddress. BTW, i am disappointed in you, Nemo. You're whipping up a crowd for forcing mobile anonymous editing based on bad information and anecdotal tales. I think you know perfectly well that this will open a firehose of crap on hundreds of wikis. It will severely burn small wikis, it will burn out patrollers, it will burn new editors (they will remember their first revert forever), it will burn trust between communities and WMF, and it will burn subsequent trials to allow mobile anonymous editing (when we'll actually have usable UI for mobile editing). If you care to explain what you're really trying to accomplish: i'm listening. --Atlasowa (talk) 10:51, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Right. [1] Can't you just use a temporary email address?
I'm very sorry that you see it that way. I definitely don't "know" all those things, it's more likely that the effect will be rather minimal. I also see a contradiction between saying at the same time that FlaggedRevs works so well on and that unregistered edits are an unstoppable flood.
What I'm trying to accomplish is simply reason, as always in my life. I think you overestimate my ability to to "whip up a crowd". My job is merely to push people to think (and speak) about some things I feel important. --Nemo 15:13, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
For instance, I can't help thinking that bringing (back) new/old people to edit Meta for the first time in 8 years, to discuss something important, is a good thing. --Nemo 12:03, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that is a good thing :-) It's also a good thing if this discussion makes some wikis volunteer to opt-in to mobile anonymous editing, so that we get real experience and more feedback. And a third good thing would be to influence WMF development for mobile web with a reality check.
I'm still traumatized by the mobile-crap-magnet/selfie-pocalypse affair (en 2013, de 2014), did you ever read up on it and what do you think the lessons were? --Atlasowa (talk) 10:38, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Sure, I followed the matter around Commons back then, though I didn't inspect every detail of it. My understanding is what I told Be..anyone (I think many repeated his same argument without noticing he changed his mind; but I don't want to tell them and risk being too pushy). is not disabled, after all. --Nemo 18:00, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi Nemo: Regarding the mobile anonymous editing drop to nearly nothing after 2015-01-09 until 2015-01-25, i see that there was Research:WikiGrok/Test3 (Test began: 2015-01-14 Test ended: 2015-01-21; Target: 16% of all users, stable mobile site, enwiki - so NOT logged in users only). May be related, maybe not. Thus the bug could come back eventually with another WikiGrok testing(?) --Atlasowa (talk) 08:48, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Edit Activity Graphs[edit]

Hi Atlasowa,

I've made some new graphs visualizing the entire edit activity of a wiki - I'm documenting work at

I've also put down some of the preliminary inferences regarding editor activity on en. Each graph has a selector on top of the page that allows you to filter it. On taking the cursor to the left end of the selector you'll get a resize cursor, you should then be able to redraw/drag the selection.

The thread I started on the research mailing list

I've posted this on your en talk page too.--Jeph paul (talk) 18:00, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
