Lots of stuff released this week, so let's dive in...
Very long edit summaries
The bug causing edits with very long summaries to not display correctly on Recent Changes has been fixed.
Editor preference de-sync
The editor preference de-sync between legacy and UCP was corrected. As a result of the fix, some of your editor preferences did get changed.
Blogs in Recent Changes when blogs are disabled
A bug causing weird Recent Changes artifacts to appear for old blogs made before blogs were disabled on a particular wiki has been corrected.
Anon wall message bug
Anonymous users can no longer edit message wall posts when anonymous contributions are disabled. This was caused by a permissions bug, which has been corrected.
importArticles works again
An urgent fix for importArticles was applied and it now works correctly again.
FormatNum was not working correctly, due to the function being baked into MediaWiki and then conflicting with the now deprecated FormatNum extension that we had ported over from legacy. We disabled the deprecated extension.
Article Comments permissions fixed
Anonymous users can no longer make comments on wikis with anonymous contributions disabled.
Localized login fix
The login page no longer displays as English for non-English users entering it from the global navigation entry point.
License dropdown fix
The license dropdown in the upload modal on Special:NewFiles works again!
Upcoming and Known Issues
- LINK SUGGEST IS OUT OF QA AND SLATED FOR RELEASE ON TUESDAY!!!!! Some of you know this feature as AutoComplete.
- Gadgets are currently read-only due to a content review bug which affects them. Once the bug is fixed, we will turn off read-only for them and let you get back to editing them.
- Some message wall migrations broke halfway through, due to incredible content volume. There is currently an urgent fix in the works.
As of Monday, the UCP was serving 50% of all pageviews on the Fandom and Gamepedia wiki networks. This is a major milestone for migrations, which are set to reach 90% pageviews at the end of the month.
A Personal Note
Yesterday, the Community Manager who inspired me to get into this field, David "DeeJ" Dague, announced he was leaving Bungie after exactly 9 years of service as a member of the Destiny community team. A lot of what you have seen here in the past 18 months and on Gamepedia since 2017 for communications and community management are inspired by his style, which is seriously top-notch. He even wrote me a personal reference that I submitted along with my resume when I applied to be the Community Manager for Gamepedia.
If you have somebody who inspires you to take chances and explore new worlds, take a moment to tell them how much you appreciate them.
A Random Observation
For the first time in two months, Andrewds1021 didn't get the last word on the previous thread before I closed it for the next one. It's weird not seeing the Earth profile picture atop the list.
