Hi everyone, and happy Friday!
This is a quick list of highlights from what the Editor Engagement
Experiments team deployed to the wikis yesterday:
*GettingStarted*: the interface change of note is that the toolbar
(presented on articles if you accept a GettingStarted task) is now much
more responsive on smaller screen sizes and print. Since we opted to hide
the toolbar on screen sizes where it would otherwise be broken (i.e. below
about 850px of width), we started explicitly logging whether users saw the
toolbar or not.
*GuidedTours*: logging for guided tours was recently broken by our last
release. This wasn't a big deal since we weren't running any active
controlled tests, but we deployed and verified fixes for logging, along
with cleaning up other parts of the architecture.
*CoreEvents*: CoreEvents is a new extension, deployed just last week, to
house logging of certain events in MediaWiki core, like preference updates.
Yesterday we added logging of whether an edit was made via the API or
mobile. Learn more at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CoreEvents
*EventLogging*: the big change here is that we added an API module for
retrieving the JSON of a schema. Like index.php?action=raw on a wikitext
page, the module returns the raw JSON content of the schema and lets you
refer to a specific revision. Here's an example:
