You wrote: "News circulated at Wikimania 2017 that Flow is back in active development...!"

Can you explain more about that? Who told that to you? Is there any way I can verify if this information is correct?

Thanks in advance,

I think that was @Jdforrester. James - correct us if I have misheard.

Btw are you watching Talk:Flow just to make sure Flow stays dead? :0)

I like threaded discussions. The general sentiment among Wikimedia conference attendees and people who are involved with onboarding new users seems to be that the future of healthy communication across this sparse volunteer community will require something better than four tildes on a wikipage...

There is no causal link, but I am watching Talk:Flow and I want to make sure Flow stays dead.

I also like threaded discussions. Using [[:en:WP:INDENT]] works fine; and Flow does not.

I am also totally in favor of improving talkpages. I am not opposed to change, I am strongly in favor of it, but I know that Flow is not the way forward.

The way the WMF handled the Flow debacle was embarrassing, and it seems they haven't learned from the past.

In order to learn from the past one has to be willing to admit that he or she has made mistakes.

Ideally we would have a VisualEditor that is able to deal with talkpages. It would be a bit weird to ask newbies to learn wikicode, VE '''and''' Flow.

LiquidThreads made me facepalm.
