Note: Thanks to Echo I now do monitor this talk page. If for whatever reason you lack a reply your best bet is to e-mail me at jrobson@wikimedia.org

Note that I am a developer at the Wikimedia foundation currently working in the mobile team and working to make it easier for Wikipedia readers to become Wikipedia editors. As a result my team creates simple to use tools to make editing easier.

If there are problems with contributions I have made it is likely there is code responsible and your best bet is to discuss this on a mailing list/contact me directly so we can improve that code.

License tagging for File:Lead Photo For Hospet0-785521897720173.jpg Edit

Thanks for uploading File:Lead Photo For Hospet0-785521897720173.jpg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information.

To add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description.

Hello Edit

Hi Jon, I apologise for my comment at MediaWiki talk:Common.css implying that you were not active here. Thing is, I visited your staff userpage, User:Jon (WMF), and did not find any mention of the fact that you have a personal account, under which you do have a repertoire of encyclopedic contributions.

Additionally, your staff talk page, User talk:Jon (WMF), redirects to the user page, which is confusing and makes it very difficult for users to contact you. Can I suggest you either redirect your staff talk page to this page, or remove the redirect and keep a separate talk page for this account (as User:Philippe and User:Ironholds do, for instance)? Thanks, — This, that and the other (talk) 07:38, 10 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mobile question Edit

How do you keep a bot from deleting a section on your talk page? I use mobile with beta turned on.Justaguy120 (talk) 16:06, 25 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This isn't really a mobile problem. Any page can be edited by anyone regardless of whether they are a bot or not. The best thing to do is talk to the owner of the bot and tell them constructively why you dislike what it does. Most bots mean well but they don't always come across that way. Jdlrobson (talk) 16:57, 25 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It hasn't happened to me yet. I just saw some bots archiving old conversations on other's pages. I wanted to know how to tell it which ones you want to keep, and which ones you want archived.Justaguy120 (talk) 02:45, 26 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SF edit-a-thons on March 7 and 8 Edit

ArtAndFeminism (3/7) and International Women's Day (3/8)!
 
 

Dear fellow Wikipedian,

In celebration of WikiWomen's History Month, the SF Bay Area Wikipedia community has two events in early March -- please consider attending!

First, we have an ArtAndFeminism edit-a-thon, which will take place at the Kadist Art Foundation from 12 noon to 6pm on Saturday, March 7. We'll be one of many sites worldwide participating in this edit-a-thon on March 7th. So join us as we help improve Wikipedia's coverage of women artists and their works!

Second, we will be celebrating International Women's Day with the International Women's Day edit-a-thon on Sunday, March 8 from 1pm to 5pm at the Wikimedia Foundation. Our editing focus will be on women, of course!

I hope to see you there! Rosiestep (talk) - via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 18:06, 20 February 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

Pushipedia feedback Edit

Please let me know what you think about Pushipedia here. Here's how you can help! Right now you'll need the latest version of Chrome (mobile or desktop) or Firefox (developer version). This makes use of pretty new technology that hasn't yet made it into other browsers.

  • Visit pushipedia and subscribe to "Trending edits (experimental)"
  • You should receive a push notification within a 48 hour period - number of notifications really depends on activity in the world and Wikipedia :)

Questions I'm keen to have answered by you:

  • What did you get push notifications about?
  • Did pushipedia lead you to make edits that you normally wouldn't have made?
  • Did pushipedia notify you of something happening before you heard about it elsewhere (e.g. news, Twitter, word of mouth)
  • Were there pages that you would have expected to receive notifications that you didn't?
  • Were there edits that you were alerted to that were due to vandalism? If so what titles were they (will help me finetune the algorithm).

Jdlrobson (talk) 22:58, 18 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's quite fun. I've come across several new articles, e.g. Perry H. Carson (which I helped edit), an edit war in progress on Objections to evolution, and lots of sports and celeb pages. Not much breaking news, other than Planet Nine. One gripe - using Chrome on Android, the notification includes the whole article text, which scrolls through in my notification bar even after I dismiss the notification. Just the lead would do. Fences&Windows 21:28, 27 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for testing it! The whole article text should be fixed by now. Try visiting the script file and hard refreshing to make sure you are running the most recent version. I will take another look to be sure. Glad it's leading to some editing :-) With respect to the edit wars, I'm wondering if I should have a separate feed for edit wars as I'm muting a lot of them but it seems a useful thing to pull in soldiers :-). Jdlrobson (talk) 21:35, 27 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ta. It flagged vandalism on J. P. Manoux. A mix of trending topics and editing flashpoints is interesting, but separate feeds might be useful. A bot could edit WP:AN/I or WP:AN3 for cases that may involve vandalism or edit warring, and a list of trending topics might be useful in a community portal.

Using 100% width for an outer container box Edit

this looks horrible. I look forward to your corrections. Frietjes (talk) 20:24, 6 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

since you don't seem to be around, I have reverted your changes and put a revised version with your changes in the sandbox. removing offending 'width:100%' from the outer container box, we now only have one fundamental problem as see case 2 in the testcases. for some reason the title in the campaignbox is left aligned. by the way, the alternative to passing the campaign box in using a parameter is to wrap both in {{stack}}, which I imagine isn't mobile friendly either. Frietjes (talk) 21:13, 6 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
yes I am around. I'll look at your proposal. Could you please be a bit more descriptive about what the problem with my change was? "Looks horrible" doesn't help me so much :) Was it just the left alignment ? I suspect the article I was testing on was different to yours and I hadn't considered a different mode. Jdlrobson (talk)

Upcoming changes to wikitext parsing Edit

Hello,

There will be some changes to the way wikitext is parsed during the next few weeks. It will affect all namespaces. You can see a list of pages that may display incorrectly at Special:LintErrors. Since most of the easy problems have already been solved at the English Wikipedia, I am specifically contacting tech-savvy editors such as yourself with this one-time message, in the hope that you will be able to investigate the remaining high-priority pages during the next month.

There are approximately 10,000 articles (and many more non-article pages) with high-priority errors. The most important ones are the articles with misnested tags and table problems. Some of these involve templates, such as infoboxes, or the way the template is used in the article. In some cases, the "error" is a minor, unimportant difference in the visual appearance. In other cases, the results are undesirable. You can see a before-and-after comparison of any article by adding ?action=parsermigration-edit to the end of a link, like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Foss?action=parsermigration-edit (which shows a difference in how {{infobox ship}} is parsed).

If you are interested in helping with this project, please see Wikipedia:Linter. There are also some basic instructions (and links to even more information) at https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2018-April/001836.html You can also leave a note at WT:Linter if you have questions.

This change seems to fix it although I'm not sure why. Seems unrelated to the recent template changes :/ Jdlrobson (talk) 20:21, 14 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. The entry was fine last week, and then it was broken. I looked to see if the template had been changed and it had. Post hoc ergo propter hoc sometimes works in troubleshooting and sometimes it leads in the completely wrong direction. Thanks for the fix, even if it was more black magic than detailed analysis of a defined system. BiologicalMe (talk) 04:30, 15 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jdlrobson: Problems persist, see for example Fusion power#1970s (I see a full-width grey rectangle just before the template). I think this has to do with the recent changes in TemplateStyles stylesheet (Template:Multiple image/styles.css). --Ita140188 (talk) 04:52, 15 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
i'm still failing to see how and why this would cause a problem since all I did was add a style tag to the template (i didnt touch the structure) :(. All signs are pointing to a parser bug at the current time. If we can isolate this to a small example we can raise a bug against TemplateStyles and/or parser. 19:27, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Mobile editor jumping when the first new character is entered Edit

I had this problem only last week, on this page Allegheny Airlines. I tried to update the text "Founded 1939 (as Allegheny Airlines)" in the Infobox.

I was trying to edit on a OnePlus One running Firefox 35.0.

I'm trying it again. On the mobile, I accessed the page, tapped the Pencil icon. After a delay, it says "X Editing Allegheny..." at the top, with the source text of the infobox immediately below.

Now here's a bizarre bug. When I scroll down, the page below a flightglobal.com ref appears to be all blank. I have no idea why.

I scrolled back up to the top and tapped the word "Allegheny" in the quoted Founded text, just after "All". The screen scrolled slightly and put a cursor in the word "airline" in the line that says:

 | airline          = Allegheny

That's the bug I was reporting.

While I was typing this, the mobile screen went dark. When I brought it back, the cursor jumped back to where I had put it after "All" of "Founded 1939 (as Allegheny...". The damn thing keeps going dark over and over as I document what's happening. I'm going to start over.

Hit Pencil button. This time it's different. Source text comes up. I press the text after "All". The cursor goes there. I press the letter "f". It inserts the word "Member" ("AllMemberegheny Airlines").

It's just bizarro, unpredictable.

I used the Back button to get out, and tried again. The next time, it worked perfectly.

I am unwilling to use this editor when it gives me three different behaviors for the same set of inputs. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gnuish (talkcontribs) 08:10, 27 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"When I scroll down, the page below a flightglobal.com ref appears to be all blank.

I have no idea why." - I can help explain this one. Right now the edit icon at the top of the page allows you to edit the first section (lead section/section 0) not the entire article. This is obviously an inconsistency from desktop and confusing a lot of other people. This is going to be re-evaluated/potentially changed this year.

So to move this live - will it need to be coordinated with phab changes or risk the existing specialcased mobile main page? I never did hear if you could point to where the current mobile main page layout configuration is actually stored. — xaosflux Talk 04:23, 1 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should not require any config changes. If the config is enabled but the markup does not use ids prefixed with mp or mf then the special casing is ignored:) Jdlrobson (talk) 05:59, 1 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, when I added a section that did start with mf-, it didn't show up there. I'm worried that all sections may disappear from mobile during the change. We currently have multiple mp- headers but they don't all show up there either, so that explanation doesn't make a lot of sense. Do you know who would know how the enwiki config for this is actually being processed? — xaosflux Talk 13:10, 1 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I know the config and refactored the code a while back. There is one flag wgMFSpecialCaseMainPage.

What I am saying is provided there are no ids prefixed at all nothing in the page will be transformed (which is what's being proposed). A section with an id starting with mf- for example will not show if inside an element with class nomobile or navbox or if it lacks a title attribute (amongst possible other edge cases).

If you are concerned we can put the newly proposed main page on https://en.m.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/ first which has the same config. Jdlrobson (talk) 14:12, 1 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jdlrobson: either I don't know what I'm looking at or something isn't right. That beta page does not appear to be the same as our config now. Notably, this page doesn't have mp- or mf- divs at all. Are you saying it would have the config that we would eventually change to, or that it has the actual config we have currently? Compare this production view to this beta view for example. What am I missing here? — xaosflux Talk 16:12, 1 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"Notably, this page doesn't have mp- or mf- divs at all." Correct. Yet despite having the exact same config as production all the content shows and nothing will hide. Since our new design doesnt have these ids either we are also good.

The content of both these main pages is obviously different but since this is a test wiki we could temporarily add the new main page design there inside Main_Page to confirm it will behave correctly. I have already done this on a local wiki.

To summarize: no config changes are needed to deploy the new main page. I have tested it.

When it's the default I will make the necessary config change to disallow any future invokations of the main page formatter so that this page behaves like any other page. Jdlrobson (talk) 00:17, 2 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wait what, are you saying the current production mobile front end design is not not show if there are mf's or mp's? We do currently have mp's on everything, and only a subset of them are on mobile - where is mobile pulling these in from? — xaosflux Talk 00:29, 2 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No I think I am adding to your confusion. Sorry about that. The new design Wikipedia:Main page 2020.01 technical update does not use mf or mp prefixed ids. That's the goal here. If even one is present it triggers the code in mobile that strips anything that doesn't have them which is what we need to move away from. If you need to understand how that exactly works in more detail I suggest looking through the code that I linked earlier in the thread. Jdlrobson (talk) 01:16, 2 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK that helps mostly, in that so long as there are not a single m*- id it will skip that processing. — xaosflux Talk 01:24, 2 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Xaosflux, you can go ahead. Jdlrobson (talk) 23:29, 5 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Done thank you. We should make sure that User:Jdlrobson/Main page technical change roll out is fairly complete, and we will need to open a community RfC. Getting some advocates to help on that page first is a good idea. One of the largest "selling points" to our editors that care about the Main Page content is that this will empower them to do more with the mobile main page. (Do we have pageview stats on the mobile domain?). — xaosflux Talk 23:49, 5 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'd rather avoid an RFC and make this a pure technical change targetting Minerva for now. At least this will allow us to focus on the single issue of revealing content on mobile. I'd hope that revealing that content would also help in working towards cultural change that mobile and screen resolution need to be considered as the same thing. I've made some updates to Wikipedia:Main_page_2020.01_technical_update to restrict these changes to Timeless and Minerva and to be as minimal as possible. Jdlrobson (talk) 00:11, 6 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Any clue if responsivemonobook will be impacted at all? I can't find documentation on that? — xaosflux Talk 00:16, 6 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Xaosflux, it won't be impacted. The responsive styles have now been limited to only apply on Minerva and Timeless: diff. I'm pretty sure this is a watertight - no visual change for any skin except Minerva which will still hide content on mobile devices (while we work out the displaying content problem - as I've said before this is not easily avoidable - but if it is a huge problem we can add a rule to MediaWiki:Minerva.css which only loads on desktop).
User:Jdlrobson/Main page technical change roll out no longer applies as there should be no changes other than Minerva desktop on mobile resolutions (usually a forgiving crowd).
Monobook in responsive mode seems to currently use the two column layout mode so it's not really responsive. The new version will continue to do so.
One small step for Wikipedians... Jdlrobson (talk) 00:29, 6 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No changes until Friday at least, no way we're going to do things to main page when WP:ITSTHURSDAY. — xaosflux Talk 00:45, 6 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Transclusions of deleted templates Edit

Hi, I have been cleaning up WP:Database reports/Transclusions of deleted templates/1 and noticed that Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Id is pointing to three of your .js pages. clearly these are false positives (basically a bug in how WP parses .js pages). it would be really great if you could add
// <syntaxhighlight lang=javascript> to the top and
// </syntaxhighlight> to the bottom of those pages. by putting these tags in comments, it won't prevent the javascript from executing, but it will remove those pages from Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Id. thank you in advance for your help. Frietjes (talk) 19:51, 27 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special:WantedTemplates Edit

Hi, would it be possible for you to put // <pre> at the top and // </pre> at the bottom of User:Jdlrobson/rl.js? That page is generating six entries in Special:WantedTemplates. You could also use <nowiki>...</nowiki> or <syntaxhighlight>...</syntaxhighlight>. By putting the tags inside of comments, it should not impact the functionality, but will prevent the backend software from showing your page in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:ViewTitle and similar pages. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 18:40, 31 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can you raise a bug on Phabricator? The page has a content type JavaScript. Special:WantedTemplates really shouldn't be picking up JavaScript wiki pages as those cannot contain templates. That's a bug in the software.
It's going to be tedious for you to have to request this from every user every time it happens, so I'd rather we fixed it at the source.
I update this wiki page via a script so I'll need to update the code to fix this. Will do that when I'm back at my computer. Jdlrobson (talk) 19:53, 31 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your edit to Eigenvalues and eigenvectors Edit

Hi, I wanted to let you know I reverted your edit to Eigenvalues and eigenvectors because wrapping the transformations table for mobile scrolling caused the header row text to be rendered about 1.5 lines lower, overlaid over the contents of the table's 2nd row. I observed this issue on desktop Safari v15.2. I took a screenshot of the observed behavior if there's a way for me to get it to you. Regards,  — sbb (talk) 16:07, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special:WantedTemplates Edit

Hi, I have been cleaning up Special:WantedTemplates and noticed that your javascript page is showing up in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Collection.description. This is because the backend software is parsing the curly braces as templates. An easy way to fix this is to put

// <nowiki>

at the top of your script, and

// </nowiki>

at the bottom of your script. This won't impact the functionality, since they are in javascript comments, but will remove the pages from Special:WantedTemplates. Thanks in advance for your help! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 13:56, 5 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

vector-max-width-toggle.js Edit

Hi Jdlrobson, it's "not longer needed" as you wrote in the source code. But using it actually prevents the user menu on the top right (the figure with dropdown) from working on most pages, at least for me. I had the JS still included, and when I mouseover the dropdown menu it collapses automatically. Maybe commenting out the code to prevent people from using it would be a good idea?
