As you may know, this year the Community Wishlist Survey format was different than in previous years.
*The proposal phase was one week longer than last week, 3 weeks.
*This year you could not nominate wishes related to biggest projects, Wikipedia, Wikidata and Commons.
*Global wishes were not allowed.
Last year there were a total of 212 approved proposals in all projects. This year the amount was surprisingly big (considering biggest projects not allowed), 72 proposals. Last year proposals that whould have been accepted this year was about 20.
*Wikibooks got 4 proposals
*Wikinews got 1 proposal
*Wikiquote got 3 proposals
*Wikisource got 28 proposals
*Wikispecies got 1 proposals
*Wikiversity got 11 proposals
*Wikivoayge got 4 proposals
*Wiktionary got 20 proposals
*The Wikimedia Community Tech team will only address the top five wishes, when in earlier years they took the 10 most voted wishes on their working list.
Most voted wishes the team will work with next year:
|1||Improve export of electronic books||Wikisource||89|
|2||New OCR tool||Wikisource||65|
|3||Migrate Wikisource specific edit tools from gadgets to Wikisource extension||Wikisource||62|
|4||Inter-language link support via Wikidata||Wikisource||60|
|5||Insert attestation using Wikisource as a corpus||Wiktionary||57|
I personally don’t like the format this year and hopefully the format will be back like before next year.
