[Wikimedia-l] Was macht dich diese Woche glücklich? / What's making you happy this week? (Week of 15 April 2018)

*Conference*

The 2018 Wikimedia Conference
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018> starts this
week in Germany. The core conference will occur from the 20th through the
22nd.


*WMF Research Showcase*

On Wednesday, the WMF Research Showcase
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Research/Showcase#April_2018>
will include presentations on two subjects that I think will interest a
number of Wikipedians:

1. "The Critical Relationship of Volunteer Created Wikipedia Content to
Large-Scale Online Communities"

2. "The Rise and Decline of an Open Collaboration System, a Closer Look"




*Photography*
As often happens, Wikimedia Commons contributors have selected some great
pictures of the day for this month

examples:

Les lecteurs du Wikipédia français ont 75% plus de chances de faire un
don que les lecteurs du Wikipedia anglais.

The Community Tech team at the Wikimedia Foundation is pushing a fix to a longstanding issue regarding block notices for users on mobile devices. A year ago, if a blocked user attempted to edit a page from their mobile device, a notice popped up for just a few seconds before automatically disappearing, giving most people insufficient time to read it. Moreover, if the reason for a block contained a wikilink or a template, the notice would fail to render the link, instead displaying raw HTML. This led to botched notifications that looked as bad as this: <https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Autoblock_of_usernamekiran.png>.

I’m happy to see that a fix is almost ready to be deployed which addresses many issues, including rendering links properly. :) <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T165535>
