As I noted in an earlier post hear, the current UI is
fine and simple, and
works. New UIs should be extra options, rather than replacing the current
Anyway, I reverted that because:
a) I was getting an error about some variable
Jörg told me that this version had some bugs and that it was more a
quick hack, so we can have a look at that. So the current try at the
design can be seen at http://tools.wikimedia.de/~stable/phase3/
b) The Icon should be above the line (<hr> tag),
to the right of the page
title (or such), not off in the content, this makes it more obvious and less
likely to go unnoticed.
Given this, it should not open a large box then;
perhaps it could just say "sighted revision" or "quality revision"
depending. The box should go by the toolbox(it would fit nicely there) or
some other decent place.
One thing about the box: it can be alternatively done such that the
text does not flow around it, but that it opens above the text. It's
simply a matter of taste. Personally, I would prefer the text not
flowing around it, as it can be closed quite simple.
As for the other comment, I'm not sure what you mean. The reason for
the box is, that the reader should get a simple way of navigating
between different types of versions, so that if you are at
which is the last sighted version, you can go either to the current
version or the last reviewed. OK, the box currently does not do this,
but this is the purpose. I don't see any useful other way of doing
The toolbox is the left column of the interface?
c) Given the above, this needs to really be changed
around to act
differently in different skins, as the above don't work in non-monobook and
the current was is still too sloppy.
That's right, different skins will be something to work on, but let's
first concentrate on getting a final UI for the monobook.
