A lot of heated discussion occur on talk pages – thus, edit conflicts
happen on talk pages a lot. To be able to solve these more effectively, the
Technical Wishes team at Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional user
interface for this situation. This interface is shown to you when you write
on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the
same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict
interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment.
If you'd like to know more about this feature, please visit the project
This interface is created as a result of the Technical Wishes survey  in
2015, in which the German Wikipedia community wished for a simpler way to
resolve edit conflicts. For regular edit conflicts on article pages, the two
column conflict user interface was created, which has been available as a
beta feature since November 2018. The plan is to make this additional
interface for talk pages available in a few months.
We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature and let us
know what you think on our central feedback page ! -- For the Technical

Hello Ambassadors - This technical question may be relevant to multiple
(particularly CJK) language communities so I'm asking it here.
What is the advice for writing a Lua script that needs to look up data from
a big table (~10k rows at first deployment, potentially increasing in the
future)? Does one hard-code the data into a Lua script, or is there a
recommended data structure for storing those?
The design problem at hand is that the Cantonese Wikipedia wants to re-sort
articles by Jyutping rather than Unicode. This will probably involve
automating the generation of Jyutping phonetic guides by looking up the
Jyutping transcription of common Chinese characters using a Lua module.
Where do we store the data?
If another wiki has done similar things, we'd be interested in sharing the
