Does Basque Wikipedia want to be among the first wikis to get previews for references?

Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (eztabaidaekarpenak)

Sorry, for writing in English. It would be great if you could add a translation.

Reference Previews and Page Previews next to each other.

In the near future, editors and readers can get pop-ups for references in the same style as Page Previews: The feature called Reference Previews will soon be deployed to a first group of wikis as a default feature.

Reference Previews show you a reference in a small pop-up when you hover over the reference number in square brackets. This way, you can look up a reference without jumping down to the bottom of the page. Nearly 2,000 people on eu.wikipedia are currently testing Reference Previews as a beta feature. After many months of testing, bug fixing and other improvements, the feature will soon be enabled as a default feature on German, Arabic and Hebrew Wikipedia, probably on May 5.

Would Basque Wikipedia also want to get the feature early? We were thinking it would be a good candidate because on Basque Wikipedia, there is no default gadget for previewing references yet. (Here’s a link to translatewiki, where the interface of the feature can be translated).

If you want to know more about the feature, please have a look at the project page or write me a message on my talk page. We would be very happy to have Basque Wikipedia on board!

Yes! Bai!

@Theklan Thanks! What is the decision process like here in euwiki? Can we go ahead and plan to deploy the feature here, or do we need a minimum of support votes? Best, Johanna

Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (eztabaidaekarpenak)

It would be great to have a decision by April 25, so we can plan the deployment.

Normally, someone should oppose here, but let's wait to have other yes to see if we have quorum.
