Patrolling and maintenance

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

Navigation popups as we know them are in big part, or even chiefly, about patrolling actions (and other maintenance like disambiguation): see for instance w:en:Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups#Features. Are these going to be in scope for this extension on a later stage, after the basics currently mentioned on the page?

If yes it will be useful to ask contributions/suggestions to the maintainers of Navigation popups in various languages, LiveRC (mainly French and Italian), RTRC (mainly Commons), FastButtons (mainly Spanish) and Ajax sysop (mainly cross-wiki). A project idea with a brief outline of requirements/theory of change could be collaboratively edited as a section in Mentorship programs/Possible projects.

After all, what all these have in common is the aim to Make MediaWiki more AJAXy.

Yes, the design team is working on rolling out Popups for different kind of pages. Please view the progress and leave any suggestions here - https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Beta_Features/Hovercards These links might also prove useful to you -

I am currently working on making this extension feature complete and then cleaning up some code. After that I think it'll become a lot easier for people to contribute \o/

Thanks. I had read those pages, but they don't mention at all the kind of features I'm talking about, hence my question (which belongs here). I like «it'll become a lot easier for people to contribute \o/», does that mean that patches extending the current scope of the extension will be accepted?

In the meanwhile LiveRC 1.0 was released! It was made so extensible that it.wiki is now able to include it without forking it on a local page. See also w:fr:Wikipédia:LiveRC/Documentation/Présentation/en. Note that LiveRC includes since 2008 or so some features that the WMF recently implemented elsewhere, like a m:Thanks button.
