Instead, they say the topic code (Topic:_____________________).
The Core Features team has enabled Flow on this talk page.
- Please conduct testing at Talk:Sandbox, retaining this page for discussions and suggestions.
- If you find bugs, report in Bugzilla if you can, and here if you can't.
Thanks notifications don't say the page the thread is on
Thank you for flagging that -- we'll have to update that message with the new "Topic title on Board name" format. We'll get that fixed...
New URLs make recent changes unusable
It was already annoying enough that there was no diffs, or "changes since your last visit" functionality in flow, so you had to manually look through the page for new posts, but now with the new URLs, the page name isn't even shown, posts are not grouped by page, and the title is useless gibberish.
I only found this page again by randomly clicking on every Topic link until one of them happened to be this page.
Sorry, that's something that we changed in non-grouped RC, and didn't fix in grouped RC. Right now, in Watchlist, Contributions and non-grouped RC, the log item is in the form "Topic title on Board name".
It should look like that on grouped RC, but it doesn't, because we broke it. Sorry! We'll get that fixed.
please let me delete my own topics nobody replied to yet
i see i asked about 'all-unfolded' mode earlier, i do not need that question, i reaised that this mode already exists
please provide me with an option of completely erasing a topic :)
Gryllida: I really don't think this is a good idea, as it would allow people to completely hide evidence of wrongdoing, etc. This would be like allowing people to revision-delete their own edits, which is not allowed and also a very bad idea.
Jay8g: Surely we can have this evidence in a talk page history without cluttering the talk page itself?
(This message had not wrapped properly to me; the "lf?" overlaps the "..." at the line end.)
Yeah, we're going to do some work on Hide that takes hidden threads out of people's way. I agree that the talk page history & Contributions is a better way to handle the problem of a user hiding evidence of their wrongdoing.
please make the interface more compact
some things like topic author and stats; a reply author's nick; reply/edit next to a reply; occupy a whole line
please redesign the layout so that these things do not leave that much space at the right
please fix the reopen thing, it says some identifier is missing
reopening topic causes previous revision identifier error; tracked as bugzilla:68172
please add link to the markup doc
when i post a new message, i see licence details below it; please add a link to the markup documentation as well
please make bullet lists less confusing
i just use '*' at line beginning and expect a non-numbered list to appear like usually it happens in wiki markup... it instead just adds an indent:
Tracked at bugzilla:67833 ("List item CSS currently broken")
The same with numbered lists,
...they don't even get numbered properly. Are you not using the same parser as a wiki page? Thought it's up to the server (PHP thing, such as ?action=parse API) to return numbered content.
Gryllida: It's just because they set overflow-x:auto on all elements within flow posts, and since the bullets and numbers are actually outside of the list element, they get hidden.
Thanks, I've updated the bugreport with that info.
please let me view a talk page with all discussions unfolded
you have modes
- 'compact' (only headlines)
- 'full' (headings, who/when started a topic)
please also add:
- 'extra full' (unfold all discussions)
please provide more info on closed topics
when a topic is closed it should say
- who closed a topic (like when one draws a consencus and closes a discussion, his nickname shoud appear)
- let me reopen a topic if i like (like when i'd like to say that the conclusion someone made was incomplete or wrong)
We should already be able to reopen topics (currently prevented by a bug, but the patch is merged today, according to bugzilla:68172, so should be live next Thursday).
Re: who closed/summarized a topic - Hmm, some of our existing templates do this, or encourage this, and some don't. I guess it would be better to standardize on including the information though. I've created a trello card for it, but let's continue to discuss it here.
(Short example list follows:
I feel we have to — at least — provide both functionalities here:
1) Some projects probably don't show who closed a topic on the talk page, but that information is available in talk page history. It should remain available in some sort of history, with Flow.
2) Some projects clearly do show who closed a topic. Flow should also be able to show it.
Personally, I would encourage all projects to use scenario 2, but if really needed then it could be configurable (i.e. a "sign" tick box in the interface which closes a thread).
