RfF: Automatic patroller grant for wiki creators[edit source]

Optimizing Main Page for different device sizes[edit source]

I have created a prototype of Main Page optimised for different device sizes (mobile, tablet and desktop). See User:Silicona/main page and User:Silicona/main page/styles.css. What do the community think of the optimization and can it be implemented into Main Page? Silicona (talk) 19:55, 13 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Seems good to me because of the improved UI on the phone.    Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 07:30, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have created another prototype of main page with statistics: User:Silicona/main page 2 and User:Silicona/main page 2/styles.css. Silicona (talk) 13:24, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Extended confirmed user right and extended confirmed protection level on Meta[edit source]

English Wikipedia already have extended confirmed user right and extended confirmed protection level. This right is given automatically to users who have active for at least 30 days and made at least 500 edits. This protection level allows only extended confirmed users and admins to edit these pages. This idea is to bring both to Meta. A lot of pages are protected to admins only and this idea could make lots of pages editable by extended confirmed users. If accepted by community, I'll start an RfC about this idea. Silicona (talk) 09:44, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

FYI: Meta already seems to have "editautopatrolprotected".    Waki285(talk|contrib|log|CA|Target) 10:00, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not necessary I believe given the function of autopatrol; any discussion imo is better suited to using autopatrolled and its protection level more often. --raidarr (💬) 21:58, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Neither of our comments constitute acceptance as desired for the rfc. The lack of engagement with input will once again create an unnecessary procedure doomed to failure. --raidarr (💬) 22:35, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This changes the background from lilac to white and adds projected bars in a lighter color. Silicona (talk) 19:13, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is quite neat and I give it a +1 myself. --raidarr (💬) 21:57, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I like the white background but I think the "projected" portion complicates what the graph is supposed to display: former and current "office holders". – Jph2 (talk) 22:31, 14 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The 'projected' bit could be nixed entirely if set to just move with the times. The draft is an improvement over the original in this regard at least. --raidarr (💬) 08:24, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Same here, I like it. I'm iffy on the projected bit, it shows more accurately how long someone has been in a role but may get confusing ╚pixDeVl╝ (Talk Contributions CentralAuth) 10:39, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Talk about Miraheze SRE statistics[edit source]

The statistics from Tech:Home are:

  • 6753 wikis
  • £4,000 budget per year
  • 10,000+ commits in our MediaWiki configuration repository
  • 5 dedicated servers and 30+ virtual machines, all managed by Puppet
  • 800+ GB of databases
  • 7 backend technical infrastructure volunteers
  • 1.5+ TBs of static content (e.g. data dumps, images, videos)
  • 400,000+ unique visitors per day

While the first one are always current, the rest are outdated. I would like to ask questions about current SRE statistics.

  1. How much budget currently per year?
  2. How many commits are currently in our MediaWiki configuration repository?
  3. How many servers and virtual machines are there currently?
  4. How large are databases currently?
  5. How many backend technical infrastructure volunteers are there currently?
  6. How large are static content currently?
  7. How many unique visitors per day are there currently?

Silicona (talk) 07:11, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some of these questions are valid but a few are public knowledge that can be found on wiki and Phorge. For 2, just look at phorge:diffusion (22,200, but I'd check the github:miraheze/mw-config to see if they match. 5 is on the SRE page, 1 is mainly on Finance but if some money needs to go to other stuff I can understand asking it. For 3, Tech:Server_usage exists but that may be outdated. ╚pixDeVl╝ (Talk Contributions CentralAuth) 10:37, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
PixDev has answered most questions it seems. Server usage should be up to date as Universal Omega updated it back in January when the new servers were commissioned. As for unique visitors, we use Matomo but due to users blocking trackers the number of unique visitors would likely be an underestimate. On average, it's around 220,000 per day.
