Hey, I was hoping to get some discussion going around the questions we posed in our recent update. Calling upon a few folks who participated constructively in some of the prior AMC [Advanced mobile contributions] discussions — @Donald Trung, Harshrathod50, arajc, jacobtohahn, AdrianWikiEditor:.

Which Talk page experience do you prefer, and why? Is there any low hanging fruit for improving the mobile Talk experience for advanced contributors?

Harshrathod50 (talkcontribs)

I prefer the Wiki version instead of Default one and that is because it allows me to decide weather I want to sign or not after replying. The automatic signing functionality of Default version is very annoying.

I feel like the current mobile talk page is like the visual editor. Laid out nice and simple showing exactly what to do. However the "Read as wiki page" is like the source editing. You don't know what to do and it's all complicated for newer editors. Keep both but maybe have some sort of dropdown so you can pick between Visual editor and Source editing. Plus people will get angry if there is only one option available. All I am saying to to maybe change how you switch between them. AdrianWikiEditor (talk) 03:37, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Will this project include adding basic admin functionality to the mobile front-end? Easy access to delete and protect pages, and blocking users would be great.

Hey @Ninovolador — I'm Alex, a WMF designer & researcher working on this project. Thanks for raising this question. I coincidentally realized about two weeks ago that we've neglected to address admin workflows thus far. We certainly would like to include some of the admin functionalities you mentioned above, as well as possibly some others, to the mobile site as part of this project. I'm curious if you could express your preference in terms of priority of the functionalities you mentioned? Also, @CKoerner (WMF) pointed me towards this list, which includes some additional administrator functions. I'm also curious if any of those would be valuable for you on mobile, again in priority order if possible. Thanks.

Hi I think that i can do a list. Keep in mind that I am a small wiki admin, so my priorities can and will differ substantially from the ones at larger wikis.

  1. deleting
  2. blocking
  3. protecting
  4. viewing/restoring deleted pages
  5. moving pages (overriding titles)

But mainly the first three. The other tasks i do, such as MediaWiki editing or merging are exceptional, and are more suitable for working on the desktop.

The other thing i do the most is rollback, but that's already been working on, i think

@AHollender (WMF) Sorry for double posting, but didn't knew how to do the mentions.

@Ninovolador awesome, thank you so much. I appreciate you noting the size of the wiki you are an admin of — I will make sure to reach out to some admins of other sizes as well.
