We haven't had one of these in a while as we are starting to switch gears from UCP migrations (set to finish in the next month+) to the unified experience work. As announced in the Community Checkpoint today, we'll begin to talk with you soon about the unified experience and the order in which the different components of it will become available.
Here are some highlights from the past few weeks:
The Gallery fixes finally went live! That includes: No more galleries with gaps around images or misaligned images, zoomed-in images, infoboxes with missing galleries, or thumbnails that are too big or too small. Shared images should display again in galleries and in lightboxes.
Notifications for article comments are live! With a few caveats: Notifications about anon comments still say "Undefined" instead of "A Fandom user". That'll be fixed. You can't yet follow all comments for an entire article, only individual comments, so you get notified if you receive a reply for your comment, or a new reply under your reply, or a reply under a comment you follow for other reasons. Notifications work on-site, on mobile, and in email.
Mods+ can now (un)hide deleted content on Message Walls. For that, an option has been added within a dropdown. The selection sticks from wiki to wiki.
A severe issue was fixed where different data clusters didn't properly sync user data, leading to issues like users showing as nonexistent if they don't have edits on a wiki.
You can once again see more than 10 notifications in the on-site dropdown.
Long wall messages can be edited again. The scroll bar has been restored so the Save button can be reached.
An issue was fixed where IP blocked users saw block notices claiming their account, rather than their IP, was blocked.
We've once again fixed issues with wiki database dump creation, so some wikis that weren't getting their dump should have it now.
A bug was fixed that prevented users from finding localized special pages via Search.
The "Closed wiki" page on mobile displays properly now.
An issue was fixed where Special:JSPages was cleared upon UCP migration. Pages would only appear there after they were edited.
ListUser once again shows users that don't have special rights on legacy wikis.
Gamepedia PRO users once again get an ad-free experience
Issue fixed where message wall notifications would say username instead of addressing you directly. (This only happened if your name has a space in it)
Issue fixed that sometimes caused the favicon upload option to escape from the ThemeDesigner and float below it instead.
Issue fixed where categories with special characters in them displayed incorrectly in the category bar in the article footer.
Issue fixed where video play buttons on videos embedded in an infobox (but not in a gallery) didn't display properly.
Issue fixed where text on articles flowed too closely to embedded images.
Issue fixed where article comment links couldn't deal with usernames ending in special characters.
Issue fixed where article comments containing multiple ? (which is fairly common) caused errors, preventing the post from being published.
importArticles once again allows spaces in import lines.
The plainlinks class should once again hide the arrow icon behind external links.
And, since @Hollowness asked, here's a picture of Louie in his holiday bowtie...
Have a great Thanksgiving, those who celebrate it! Fandom US will be off next Thursday and Friday, so responses from US-based employees will be delayed. Additionally, I'm out most of next week. Toodles!
