== August 23: Infrastructure and such == # The issue of the Incubator Extension is still pending on the phabricator, and in any event I'm thinking about what happens if doesn't really work right here. On the whole, I'm not sure it's absolutely essential that we get the extension working. In my view, there are just a couple of things from the extension that I ''really, really'' want, and a couple of others that would be "very nice to have". The rest could end up being more complicated than would be worthwhile. #*'''I ''really, really'' want:''' (i) Test-administrators, and (ii) no unprefixed pages in mainspace [and except for infrastructure, in Template, Module, Category spaces). I think (i) can be implemented independently of the extension; (ii) we'd have to enforce, but unless I miss my guess it won't be that hard to do, if we set a rule in place that unprefixed pages immediately get "userfied" without further notification. #*'''"Nice to have":''' Search within tests, random pages within tests, new pages within tests, recent changes within tests, and all the other things like that. They do make life a lot easier. On the other hand, since projects here will generally not be moving anywhere, our need to monitor such things—test activity, and what have you—will be a lot lower here than it is on WM Incubator. # Meanwhile, we need to start creating/importing at least minimal infrastructure: Home page, community portal, admins' noticeboard, some pages on standards and rules, some infrastructure templates. I'll start playing with this over the next few days; I'll take care of this, at least initially, because I'm counting on you to do the heavy lifting on transferring contents here once we're open for business. (But feel free—and you, too, @[[User:Revi|Revi]].) #* Probably this user talk page will get moved to become an archive of either AN or CP, leaving you a clean user talk page for "regular business". (OK?) Some things on my user talk page will be integrated. # Target date to open: 1 September? 15 September? [[User:StevenJ81|StevenJ81]] ([[User talk:StevenJ81|talk]]) 15:54, 23 August 2018 (UTC) :#I agree, although with the expected activity levels here, I don't think having unprefixed pages will become to hard to manage. Although, it will be easy :) :#Sure, go ahead :) I will import the tests once we know more about the enabling of the incubator extension and how that will work on non-standard prefixes. :#Yes :) --[[User:Ooswesthoesbes|Ooswesthoesbes]] ([[User talk:Ooswesthoesbes|talk]]) 09:10, 24 August 2018 (UTC) *# Not sure if abusefilter can do the trick (if we can't do Incubator ext.) *# Search in Miraheze is not as powerful as Wikimedia does - it lacks [[:w:Elasticsearch]], which is the powerful search engine backing Wikimedia search backend. (And miraheze folks are [[phab:T2482|not going to install it]].) *# I'll keep an eye on the import stuff and try to import other (possibly) useful stuff. :) *# Either time is fine to me! — [[User:Revi|<span style="color:green"><tt>revi</tt></span>]] 16:43, 24 August 2018 (UTC) (As you saw, OWTB, WMF Legal turned down our logo, and I've taken it down. [[User:StevenJ81|StevenJ81]] ([[User talk:StevenJ81|talk]]) 21:17, 24 August 2018 (UTC)) :Yes, I saw it too. Let's keep the Miraheze logo for now. --[[User:Ooswesthoesbes|Ooswesthoesbes]] ([[User talk:Ooswesthoesbes|talk]]) 08:29, 28 August 2018 (UTC) ::Fine. ::Not going to be ready 1 September (which is Saturday). Going to aim for 15 September. [[User:StevenJ81|StevenJ81]] ([[User talk:StevenJ81|talk]]) 15:29, 28 August 2018 (UTC) :::Well, there is no reason to be hasty as this is a side project anyway. So take your time :) --[[User:Ooswesthoesbes|Ooswesthoesbes]] ([[User talk:Ooswesthoesbes|talk]]) 15:32, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
