When was Vue.js officially chosen?

Yaron Koren (talkcontribs)

I'm not surprised that I got some information wrong about this, but something about your revert seems incorrect as well. The announcement email was sent in August 2021; did it really take a year and a half between when the decision was made and when it was announced? The email makes it sound like a recent decision. The wording there is a little unclear, but it seems to suggest that the decision in March 2020 was just to go forward with a pilot project for Vue.js, to determine if it really did make sense to use as MediaWiki's standard JS framework; and that in August 2021 it was decided that the pilot project was enough of a success to make the official decision. Is that incorrect?

Sadly, it did. No-one could agree who was allowed to announce it, until finally we just did it anyway.

No, the working group to decide on Vue.JS reported in September 2019, hence the RfC launched at that point just as the RfC system was being dismantled.

Okay, strange but true! Thanks for the explanation. I just modified the wording of the history somewhat; hopefully it's still accurate.

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Just want to say: as a new staff member who is still pretty insecure about making edits and having my work and mistakes be visible to the whole world, it's nice when a comrade you've never met thanks you for your edits. So, thanks for taking time to thank me for my edits on various wikis -- even when they are potentially causing chaos as I learn :-)

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you for making them. It's such great work you're doing, and it's so important that we're investing in this area now. :-)

TBurmeister (WMF) (talkcontribs)

If only I had learned I could hand out kittens before I posted this boring text-only message :-)

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Oh yes, the kitten feature is under-advertised, clearly. :-D
