Editing news 2020 #3

12:56, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Frankly speaking, if you are going to push for VE to show up by default, you will see a rise in the usage. There are times when I see the edit source code link, but that is 2017 source code editor -- it gets increasing difficult to find where to enable original source editor from. (Analogy: if you run a site, and hide the option to opt-out of the newsletter -- you are going to see more people are receiving the news letter as they join.). In all fairness, you should also report stats on how many edits were made using the original editor, and how many established editors chose to use it despite seeing this non-userfriendly editor in their face.

Time not mentioned

In the topmost banner showing details about nomination for ArbCom elections, the date is mentioned, but time is not mentioned. If you think time is not needed, then I think the word 'UTC' needs to be removed. Adithyak1997 (talk) 18:41, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

@Adithyak1997: 2020 UTC July 17 means 8:20 pm UTC on July 17. Time in UTC does not have a colon, it is HHmm, not HH:mm. However, I feel it is a typo, and should be 2000 UTC. Thanks for making me look there.

There was actually one mistake from my side too. I misread 2000 as 2020. Thanks for letting me know about that. Adithyak1997 (talk) 19:01, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
@Adithyak1997: Nope, I updated the siteheader after replying to you.
