Please read: a proposal to centralize VisualEditor feedback on www.mediawiki.org[править вики-текст]


Hello. The VisualEditor team would like to inform you of a plan to redirect local pages for VisualEditor feedback to the board on mediawiki.org a few weeks from now. This applies to all the wikis where such pages are inactive or have low traffic, including yours. When this happens, editors will be free to use their own language to write on the mediawiki.org's page - although English is the most popular language there. Even feedback left from within VisualEditor with the built-in tool will be posted to the board on mediawiki.org.

Having all the feedback on a single, centralized place mainly means getting faster, more frequent replies and more attention from a higher number of people, including the people who are building the software. It also means chances are high, that editors will find that someone else has already written there about the issues or requests they wanted to post.

Maintaining a local page instead can be cumbersome: it needs to be checked frequently in case someone reports urgent issues. Old threads need to be archived from time to time. Off-topic comments should be removed to keep readability. Feedback left there is sometimes not easily understandable or actionable at all.

If at least one community member per wiki expressly commits to taking care of the local page, the redirect will not be necessary, although we need to establish a clear process with this person as soon as possible so that this person knows when to escalate issues to Phabricator or to Community Liaisons, and can receive useful tips based on our experience. Therefore, if you'd like to volunteer for this task, please leave a message on my talk page within one week. Otherwise, we'll redirect the feedback page and feedback from the built-in tool to mediawiki.org at the given deadline. Thanks for your understanding, Elitre (WMF) 19:25, 27 августа 2015 (UTC)
