Hi! In phabricator:p/ovasileva/ it looks like everything became high priority, are you sure? :) For instance, phabricator:T87336 is certainly not high priority (low impact, high effort, local/specific issue with workaround); the actual thing to fix is phabricator:T91683, which also has an easy solution. --Nemo 15:01, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi. As pointed out by srdjan_m on IRC, this edit has a bad date. There's no February 31, 2017. CKoerner seems to have duplicated the error in this edit. --MZMcBride (talk) 05:13, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Hey, because after I logged out of my email account, I realized I hadn't specifically told you, just added it to my calendar – I'll be out of office tomorrow (because of w:en:Midsummer) and won't keep track of Reading/Web/PDF Functionality. Back again on Monday. (: /Johan (WMF) (talk) 19:59, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

From a December newsletter on the Wikipedia in French, I've been informed your team looked for feedback on Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements/Prototype testing. I've finally got enough time to complete my comments (which are probably about the same than the post-its stuck on the poster at Wikimania 2019). But I realised that the announcement asking for feedback has been written some time ago.
Was it still okay to leave feedback on that page or was it too late? J. N. Squire (talk) 15:27, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
- @J. N. Squire: Sure - that's completely fine. We'll continue gathering feedback throughout January (as well as publishing some more announcements on other wikis). Thanks for the feedback! OVasileva (WMF) (talk) 18:47, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
- @OVasileva (WMF): You're welcome! J. N. Squire (talk) 13:33, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
I was wondering if the explanation I've given for the ticket (phab:T249676#6156299) was sufficient and the non-team-member perspective is understandable, or I need to do better? Thank you ;-) —Aron Man.🍂 edits🌾 02:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
