Is there a high-level overview of Flow ⇒ Structured Discussions ⇒ "Children of Structured Discussions" and the intended future path(s) ?

Structured Discussions is no longer in feature development
Viewing Wikitext source code of comments
How can one view the WikiText source code of comments to facilitate block quotes?
Logged-in editors have extra buttons for "Edit" on other people's comments, and can view-source that way. IP-editors do not have that feature, nor a workaround for that functionality at this time.
Acticating Flow for the event talk page
Hi, there a was request in fiwiki that we could enable structured discussion to the talk page of a project page. The wiki project is for Plan International's girls day edithaton and it is used for Q&A style answering for a people who have a.) never edited Wikipedia and b.) aren't seasoned writers so it would help that if commenting would be easier than wikicode.
Fiwiki has Flow extension enabled and it has been used like this before (see https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keskustelu_wikiprojektista:Sata_naista_Wikipediaan ) However, it was managed by User:Flow_talk_page_manager so I don't know if there are any local users with suitable rights.
So my question is if using Structured discussions in new pages is still possible in fiwiki?
Disadvantage: Browser can not restore form data
Although structured discussions are more convenient, one disadvantage is that if one accidentally navigates away from the site, or closes the tab, the browser can only recover the title and not the text field.
Yes. Thankfully, the code recovers it instead.
Desactivate structured discussion on my user talk page
I'd like to desactivate the structured discussion on my user talk page, but it is not working (the clicking bow in preferences isn't working).
Can someone halp me or do it for me (or tell me whom should I ask for help) ?
You can't on MediaWiki, but you can activate/deactivate it on other wikis.
@Prahlad balaji: That's not true. It's entirely possible to have a wikitext talk page on MediaWiki.org, it's just that an admin has to manually create it. See Topic:Vhgykhmyxtvtm4dk for an example of a successful request for a Wikitext talk page. As for the original issue on the French Wikipedia, I think the problem may be phab:T234241, but don't know how to solve it.
@Martin m159: I think you should take Pppery's advice. I'm a noob in this area.
Perhaps you shouldn't suggest something is impossible when you self-admittedly are a noob?
@Pppery: Yeah... ;)
Prevent editing of "About this board" description
Hello, please tell me how to prevent registered users from changing the description of "About this board"?
Pinned a Topic
Hi, Is there anyway to pinned a topic on board or we can sort the topic by old to topmost? The problem is that users are suppressing the topics created by admins through creating new topics. It will be very helpful there are any hack or method for sort or pinned.
"Structured Discussions on user talk" not working
Hello the feature exist as a beta feature that can be enabled. It was enabled I don't even remember since when and now I deactivated and activated again a couple of times but nothing seems to change. Anybody knows whats going on? My talk page on Greek wikipedia.
What happened to my talk page?
My talk page is now an archive. I'm not sure what happened:
- It used the the expected edit summary (Adding archive template).
- It added the expected archive header and category.
- Oddly, it also repeated the Welcome message that was already present.
- It used the the expected edit summary (Removing archive template).
- Incorrectly, it added a second archive header.
- Oddly, it also added a third copy of the Welcome message.
Possibly relevant clue(?): The Welcome template that was on the talk page is normally supposed to be substed but it wasn't. The Flow talk page manager left the Welcome template intact, and each time it added a subst version.
Special Page for all Recent Topics
As I am using StructeredDecisions on a smaller Wiki, I would like to see the most recent discussions in some sort of list linking to the respective pages (more lik a forum/table view). Did somebody already program something similar?
