Numerical sorting[edit]

Please enable it on It had already been requested in [1], and I got a confirmation that since this adds to uca-it, it's indeed desirable. Would have filed a task OC, but Phab's been down for a while now and I didn't want to forget. TY --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Excellent, thanks! I filed it in T146675. We're going to wait until we have a few wikis, and then do them at once -- I'll let you know when we're going to run the conversion on -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 17:24, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi Elitre (WMF), numerical sorting is live now on Here's an example. Let me know if you see any problems. Thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:38, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

Enabling numerical sorting on vi.wikipedia[edit]

I've followed your instructions and created a discussion on enabling numerical sorting on vi.wikipedia. There have been 18 "support" votes (including mine), with no "oppose" votes. I think that the consensus on my wiki is to enable this feature. —ALittleQuenhi (talk to me) 07:42, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

@Quenhitran:: Great, I'll add you to the ticket: T146675. We're going to get some more wikis on the list, and then we'll do them as a batch. I'll let you know when it's coming up, thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi Quenhitran, numerical sorting is now live on viwiki! (Here's an example.) Let me know if you see any problems. Thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 22:06, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you DannyH (WMF), I've seen the changes and it works great! I've also left a notification on the community's talk page so that other users can experience this feature and report the problems. —ALittleQuenhi (talk to me) 11:05, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Enable numerical sorting in hu@wikipedia[edit]

Hi DannyH,

We would like to have uca-hu-u-kn in Hungarian Wikipedia. Community support is here: hu:Wikipédia:Kocsmafal (javaslatok)#Kategóriák numerikus rendezése. Thank you! Bináris tell me 06:38, 1 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Bináris, Thanks for the message. I added Hungarian WP to the Phabricator ticket -- we're going to collect some more requests, and then do them as a batch, probably in a few weeks. I'll let you know when it's coming, thanks! -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 20:12, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Enable numeric sorting at no.wikipedia[edit]

Hi Danny, please add nowiki to your list, per community consensus: no:Wikipedia:Tinget#Numerisk_sortering_i_kategorier. Stigmj (talk) 20:48, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Norwegian use space as thousand separator, it is used inconsistently, and it is not properly tested. In the category system there are also marker strings that switch the direction, which is not properly identified. Yes I wrote the original proposal at nowiki, no I do not think this should be turned on yet. — Jeblad 23:34, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
Your (now suddenly changed) opinion after the fact doesn't change the community decision. If you have any technical issues, please direct them to phabricator as bug reports. The technical implementation of the numeric sorting should take into account the idiosyncracies of the different formatting of numbers, or we will have to adapt to them. There is wide support for enabling the sorting today. Stigmj (talk) 10:42, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Well, I have written what is the open problems. When I posted the note on nowiki I asked about opinions whether it should be implemented. No I did not list all the possible problems in the note, that would make it too hard to build consensus. Now go back and ask the community to find the possible problems that will emerge when the categories are sorted numerically. — Jeblad 11:07, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi Stigmj and Jeblad: Thanks for both the consensus discussion and the concern. :) Jeblad, it's true that the numerical sorting collation has a problem with separators -- this is true for a comma separator as well as a space separator. For example, on English WP's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954 film), I added a defaultsort with my volunteer account so that it sorts as 20000 Leagues Under the Sea. As a volunteer, I've done a lot of defaultsort fixing over the years, because it happens to be one of my personal "pet peeves", so I did some cleanup on numerical sorting by adding defaultsorts after we deployed it on English WP.
So you are correct that with the new collation, there still need to be some defaultsorts to make the sorting work properly on numbers with separators. There's not a lot that we can do about that part, and we don't plan on addressing that right now. Unfortunately, that means you may need to change some defaultsort tags. But that's already a problem with the current sorting used on Norwegian WP, so this collation doesn't make that any worse, and it does fix all of the other numerical sorting issues. If it would help, I'd be okay with personally fixing some defaultsorts on Norwegian on my personal volunteer time -- I actually kind of enjoy fixing defaultsorts.
Jeblad, if you think that issue is enough to halt the rollout of numerical sorting, then maybe you could reopen that community discussion, and ask if other people feel the same way. What I see right now is a unanimous agreement that people want numerical sorting. :) Stigmj and Jeblad, let me know how you think we should proceed. Thanks. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:54, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
It is a consensus, which is a necessary premise before more time is invested, and now an analysis should be done on necessary changes and especially on the marker terms. It is probably not a lot of work, but it should be done so people know what will break and how they can fix it. That is my opinion. — Jeblad 20:56, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Jeblad, can you give me an example of the marker terms? I'm not sure that I know what you mean. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 21:01, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
I sent you an email earlier today. — Jeblad 21:15, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Jeblad -- Okay, I just read your email, so I know what you mean. The new numerical sorting does not affect "f.Kr." and "e.Kr." at all, the same as "BC" and "AD" on English WP. It looks like Norwegian WP uses a workaround, putting e.Kr.and f.Kr. dates in separate categories, based on a set of 100 years -- [[Kategori:Årstall på 0-tallet]] from 1 e.Kr. to 99 e.Kr., and [[Kategori:Årstall på 0-tallet f.Kr.]] for 99 f.Kr. to 1 f.Kr. English WP uses a different workaround, using sorts to count backwards from -0001 to -9999, and then forward from 0001 to 9999.
But, the important thing: This will not be impacted in any way by the new numerical sorting collation. There will be no effect at all, and nothing to fix. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 21:32, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
If the described system isn't according to whats described in the ticket, that is the ICU collation, then you should perhaps create a proper help page, where you clearly describe what the implemented system do and don't do. — Jeblad 22:14, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
Jeblad -- Yes, I'm sorry that this was confusing. I'm glad that we cleared it up. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 22:56, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Community Wishlist Survey: NPP & AfC issues[edit]

Hi DannyH. Yes, I'm aware of that pre-survey page and while it is nice to know that someone is at least watching it, our entries were made on consensus of the volunteer community team that is working on a highly critical aspect of Wikipedia - a Foundation project - that the Foundation has refused to maintain and complete since 2013 and which most of the new staff are probably not even aware of.

Ideally, we need to bypass your project in order to address these issues in a timely manner (we've been waiting for nearly 5 years) and escalate these needs to a level where it can be understood that our requirements are serious major issues that are not to be confused with the requests for gadgets and gimmicks that are generally submitted by individual users to your project. We have tried engaging Nick Wilson and Ryan Kaldari but we are still without any positive action or in some cases, even response. We are concerned that within the fold of the WMF a lot of buck-passing is going on.

So basically, we are just exploiting every avenue to ensure awareness among the many employees of the WMF which has grown from 7 employees to over 200 in 5 years, whose work overlaps on one one hand, but who are unaware of what each one is doing on the other, in the hope that someone will finally understand the urgency of these issues. They concern the very fabric on which the Wikimedia mission is built. For more information and If you are in any way concerned about the reputation of the encyclopedias owned by the Wikimedia Foundation, please see: en:Wikipedia:The future of NPP and AfC. Thanks. --Kudpung (talk) 01:59, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi Kudpung, just to clarify: That wasn't a pre-survey page. It was set up by a volunteer, and was specifically marked as not being connected to the Wishlist Survey. That's why I wanted to give you a heads-up, so that you wouldn't invest too much into that page as a way of getting work done on your proposal. I'm glad that Ajraddatz deleted that page, because this is exactly the kind of confusion that I was worried that page would create.
I think that the Wishlist Survey is probably the best route for you to get development work done. This is specifically what the Community Tech team is designed to support -- an important project that a lot of contributors want to see done, but hasn't been prioritized by any other product team. So far this year, 5 of the top 10 wishes from the last survey have been completed, we're currently working on a 6th, and Wikidata is working on another one. We're also currently working on #25 and #29 on the list.
If you're talking to people at the Foundation -- Nick, Ryan, James, all the way up to Katherine and the board -- then I expect that they'll probably tell you to propose this in the Community Wishlist Survey. It starts in a month -- the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey page has all the details. Let me know what I can do to help. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 18:00, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
The difference is, Danny, that these issues are too big for the Wish List. We're not asking for convenience gadgets, we're asking for the completion of some critical core software (or extensions) that the Wikipedia Foundation started and did not complete. You would understand more if Jonathan had properly disseminated the content of the hour-long Skype he had with me. The problem is that he also does not understand. the gravity of the current situation. At he end of the day, the Wish List project is the wrong venue for these pressing issues and they do indeed need a ruling from Katherine if a department does not yet exist to address them. --Kudpung (talk) 19:07, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
I just had a conversation with the team about this. We are concerned about the skyrocketing backlog; Ryan has some thoughts about what we can do. I think some other people are going to be reaching out to you with specifics. I'm glad you brought it up, and I hope we can help. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 19:23, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Complete Reliability/Factual Accuracy Solution[edit]

  • Problem: Wikipedia acknowledges that the encyclopedia should not be used as a primary source for research, either academic or informational. According to Academics [2][3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] & Harvard [9] ,Carleton [10],livescience [11] ,forbos [12],guardian [13] ,nature [14] wikipedia articles are "not enough RELIABLE" for academic research/study.some educational institutions have banned it as a primary source while others have limited its use to only a pointer to external sources. [15] [16] [17]. And there is "Lack of methodical fact-checking "...Inaccurate information that is not obviously false may persist in Wikipedia for a long time before it is challenged. [18] .. For a list of hoaxes that have occurred on Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:List of hoaxes on Wikipedia .
  1. Accuracy is the biggest problem about Wikipedia . Anyone can add subtle nonsense  or erroneous information to articles that can take weeks, months or years to be detected and removed (which has been happening since at least 2002). Deliberate hoaxes can also be perpetrated.
  2. Even unregistered users are capable of this. For example, some one can just come and edit this very page and put in "khats r four doughs onlee" or add mention of some unrelated topic: ===like how great pineapple pizza is===
  3. Dross can proliferate, rather than become refined, as rhapsodic authors have their articles revised by ignorant editors.
  • Who would benefit: all wiki reader & editor . 18 billion user every month . pageview 18 billion every month.[19][20][21]
  • Proposed solution:I have a five step solution .

1.(Easy reporting): by Making it much easier for people to report "factual accuracy", misinformation faster. google,google news,facebook [22] ,twitter,bing everyone have a interactive reporting & feedback system .We can have a interactive reporting in wikipedia similar to google feedback [23] (with screenshot ; highlight issue in "yellow" & Black out private information private information) for highlighting a specific block/line . In wikipedia articles , we can have a [Report] link in every section ,beside [Edit] link . In reporting , there should have features for adding ,section dispute template & inline dispute template with Citation needed template & Accuracy disputes category., There are several noticeboards (for  inaccurate content  &  factual inaccuracy) at which accuracy disputes may be listed to gain the views of other editors, particularly the Dispute resolution , Fringe theoriesreliable sourcesno original researchneutral point-of-view, Conflict of Interest and biographies of living persons noticeboards.All report should go there or open a request for mediation (RFM) & Requests for Comment . some report should go here and here.In this way, we have a possibility  to get 18 billion "factual accuracy" report in every month  :) . [24][25][26]

2.(Algorithm): Leverage algorithms and artificial intelligence.Stronger detection Algorithm .Facebook already using machine learning—different algorithms than the ones that drive the Trending section—to try and catch misinformation on the platform . We can have a Algorithm similar to google,facebook [27] [28][29] [30] [31] [32] & twitter  [33] fake news algorithm .When a user create a article with Factual Accuracy/misinformation,claim,Fringe theories , original research ; without proper citation ; then the Algorithm should automatically add section dispute template & inline dispute template with Citation needed template & Accuracy disputes category. ...from reliable sources guideline , we can create a algorithm for "cross check ". when a editor insert a citation then it & will automatically start cross-checking the content with other similar reliable source & will create a " reliability meter ".

3.(Third party verification): Over the last several years, fact checking has come into its own. Led by many respected fact checking organizations like the International Fact-Checking Network, rigorous fact checks are now conducted by more than 100 active sites, according to the Duke University Reporter’s Lab. They collectively produce many thousands of fact-checks a year, examining claims around urban legends, politics, health, and the media itself. Google added a fact check tag on Google News in order to display articles that contain factual information next to trending news items.[34].Facebook using snopes [35] is a well-known resource for validating and debunking such stories in American popular culture, receiving 300,000 visits a day. [36] The Reporters’ Lab at Duke University maintains a database managed by Mark Stencel and Bill Adair of fact checking organizations. The database tracks more than 100 non-partisan organizations around the world. Articles are also examined based upon whether the site examines transparency of sources and methods, tracks political promises, examines all parties and sides, and examines discreet claims and reaches conclusions.

4.(User Right): We can have a user right group "Fact Checker". This user group will have some expertise & tools .Or, this right can be added to Admin group. they will get notified , when point 1.(Easy reporting) will happen , mainly for goodA ,GA &  B  articles. They will try to solve Factual Accuracy from these category as much as they can .

5.(reliability meter): in visual editor cite templates , we can add reliability meter . from the help of point 2.(Algorithm) ; every reader will see "reliability meter " , when they click in the "citation " & in "REFERENCES" .there is third party databases [37] [38] [39] [40] or we can create our own . when Reliability/Accuracy 100-81% ; we will see Red dot . when Reliability/Accuracy 80-61% ; we will see Red dot . when Reliability/Accuracy 60-50% ; we will see Red dot .

Moving proposals[edit]

I'm puzzled by this change. There is no trace of the "moved" element on (I checked your contributions over there), so where did it go? And why was no link left behind? I guess I'm wondering about the policy governing the collection of proposals. Urhixidur (talk) 00:59, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi Urhixidur, I moved your proposal to the Wiktionary page of the Wishlist Survey. When I moved it, I left a message under your proposal with a ping so that you would know where it went. Maybe your notification got lost somewhere along the way, I'm sorry about that! Your proposal is there, and open for voting.

Yeah, your revision is out of date now. :) -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 18:45, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
Strange, lately it seems like it has become more common to not be logged in on all projects. — Jeblad 18:41, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
Is that a bug you're seeing? I'm not sure who to direct that to, but I can find out... -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 18:45, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
I wasn't logged in on this tab when I wrote the note, even if I was logged in on other tabs. It happens all the time now. It seems like existing tabs does not get the correct events. Perhaps I should write a proper bug report. — Jeblad 02:52, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that would be good. I'm not the right person to diagnose that, sorry. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 14:46, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Discussion pages[edit]

Hello Danny, any place is good for me, where I can get answer to my question ([42],[43]). :) Thank you in advance. Samat (talk) 23:53, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Samat: I'm sorry, I missed your question! User:Jdforrester (WMF) will know what the current plans are. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 00:33, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Danny; Samat, I'm not sure there's any current conversation about user-user discussion, but a good place for such a discussion would be somewhere on, maybe mw:Talk:Global Collaboration (as they're the team responsible for such features).

"Support" vote broken after moved[edit]

See the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Watchlists/Automatic notication of new links to a page should be able to be activated/deactivated on a per page basis's history--YFdyh000 (talk) 16:34, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Fixed I think. But someone should move the votes from the redirect page. Stryn (talk) 16:39, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
YFdyh00, thanks for flagging this, and Stryn, thanks for fixing it. :) I guess the bot that we used to add the header didn't keep up with the spelling fix for "notification". YFdyh00, I moved your vote and Jenks24's to the correct page. Sorry for the mixup. -- DannyH (WMF) (talk) 18:15, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
