Do not insert wrong markup like {{Translations:Help:Recent changes/24/{{PAGELANGUAGE}}}}. It does not work on translation pages which have no translation.

Hi there! Because you are a proud member of the community taskforce for the visual editor, I'm sending you this short questionnaire so that we can learn how to improve existing resources and about different ways to build and share community knowledge. Thanks for participating! I'll come back here to collect your answers on September 9th. I'll collate answers on the taskforce talk page. Talk to you soon!

PS: If for any reason you'd like to provide your answers privately, just send me an email instead.

  1. Was the existing documentation about how to adapt the visual editor to your context useful to you?
    • Do you have ideas about how to improve or expand it? (Note it has been changed recently, here's what it looked like before.)
    • What is your preferred format to learn about something or about how to get things done? Feel free to list tools or other resources, even if they aren't being used currently on our sites.
  2. What is the one thing related to adapting the visual editor which is not explained well anywhere and you're still struggling to learn more about?
  3. Did you create additional documentation/resources to help yourself and others? Like user guides, how-to/instruction pages, etc.? If so, please provide links.
  4. Did somebody else from WMF or your community assist you with the visual editor community work you did so far? Please list names and the ways they provided support (like, Alice sent me an email to explain how to do X). Please, add community members' names to the taskforce list if they are not there yet.

1. Yes,

a) I think it should be kept simple, the way it is.

b) Documentation and examples, of course.

2. The User Guide is pretty much self-explainable

3. No :(

4. No

Shortening links in translatable pages

Hello! I saw your edit in the LocalSettings.php page, and while it's good, I'd recommend you to avoid doing that on already translated pages, specially when the links are already in tvar tags. Translating those units is not easier now, because the links were variables already, but your edit invalidates all existing translations, that now have to change the markup. Keep it in mind in the future to avoid extra work for translators!
