Example of improvements
In a few weeks the Readers web team will be changing how some templates look on the mobile web site. We will make these templates more noticeable when viewing the article. We ask for your help in updating any templates that don't look correct.
What kind of templates? Specifically templates that notify readers and contributors about issues with the content of an article – the text and information in the article. Examples like Template:Unreferenced or Template:More citations needed. Right now these notifications are hidden behind a link under the title of an article. We will format templates like these (mostly those that use Template:Ambox or message box templates in general) to show a short summary under the page title. You can tap on the "Learn more" link to get more information.
The Community Wishlist Survey. Please help translate to your language.
The Community Wishlist Survey is the process when the Wikimedia communities decide what the Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech should work on over the next year.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. The communities have now posted a long list of technical proposals. You can vote on the proposals from now until 30 November. You can read more on the wishlist survey page.
In very simple terms the citation templates used are trying to do something that HTML5 does not allow. Putting List markup (DL, UL , OL) inside a SPAN tag. This is impossibleby HTML structuring conventions.
Perhaps someone here can write a version of the template, that DOES work and doesn't need me to run around playing hunt the pedantic parser failing? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:43, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
I've removed the quotes; it looks like a format we don't follow anymore (or didn't follow in the first place). Hiàn (talk) 21:55, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
I've also deleted the templates, please let myself or another admin know if it breaks anything or there are more templates to be deleted. Cheers, Hiàn (talk) 21:59, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
These new requirements will apply to new accounts and privileged accounts. New accounts will be required to create a password with a minimum length of 8 characters. Privileged accounts will be prompted to update their password to one that is at least 10 characters in length.
These changes are planned to be in effect on December 13th. If you think your work or tools will be affected by this change, please let us know on the talk page.
