BIG blue button for plwiki

Hi ­čÄë Tar, ­čÄŐ[1]

James has moved the explanatory page to Contributors/Projects/Accessible editing buttons, and started expanding it. I don't think he's done, but perhaps in another day or two.

I'd like to warn the Polish Wikipedians about this in advance. What do you think is the best page for that? The tech people will need to fix the scripts, so w:pl:Wikipedia:Kawiarenka/Kwestie techniczne would make sense, but non-tech editors need to know what's happening, so maybe it doesn't. Would you like to start telling people about this, or would you rather that I did (in English)?

Also, is there a particular day of the week that you prefer? I think that Wednesday or Thursday is feasible this week, but otherwise it will have to wait until next week. (Ops has officially disapproved of changes like this happening on Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays since the Orange Bar of Doom dispute when Echo was deployed to enwiki.)

  1. ÔćĹ I have found some confetti. ;-)

Confetti ^^ You made me smile broadly ­čĄŚ[1] ­čśŐ ­čĄŚ

Yes, the tech village pump does suit. You can post there, and I'll translate that. I'll also write an announcement on our general noticeboard (pl:WP:TO), and this way, both techies and non-techies will know. I prefer to start telling people publicly (on-wiki) when the explanatory page is ready, and for now, I can just write on our IRC and see what's the reaction.

If I start doing that today, and the page is ready say tomorrow European time, then Thursday is absolutely the earliest option. Maybe even next week would be better? People will be surprised (for sure!) by a sudden change. 2 days is really not so much.

  1. ÔćĹ That's a hug┬á:)

Let's plan for Monday (probably the SWAT slot later in the UTC day), so that we don't have to guess whether the pages will be ready today. @Matma Rex, will you be around on Monday afternoon/evening? I know that all of these changes can be made in advance, but I always expect something to break anyway.

I think there's still one more thing that we need add to Contributors/Projects/Accessible editing buttons. This change will make it easier on script writers/maintainers, and we haven't mentioned that yet. (Yes, it's ironic that we're breaking scripts to make it easier on script maintainers.)

I'll poke James F about adding that again, but perhaps you'd like to take a look at what he's already written about accessibility.

I posted an announcement on our goings-on/noticeboard, with a tl;dr explanation and info about one of our gadgets.
