[UA-discuss] UASG010 - Quick Guide to Linkification

Some questions:


1)      Do I understand correctly, that the recommendation to not linkify highly restrictive strings means that  <mailto:tex@普遍接受-测试.世界> tex@普遍接受-测试.世界 would not become a link? Or http:// 普遍接受-测试.世界.com?


Highly restrictive means that latin cannot be mixed with Chinese or Japanese characters.


2)      I do not understand “Linkification should be determined by the implied intent of the user's entry” Is this intended to mean that the scheme (http, mailto, etc) should be added to form the link? Or some other determination of intent? If the former, it should be stated more clearly.

A quick update on Linkification


We have published an updated Quick Guide to Linkification https://uasg.tech/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/UASG010-Quick-Guide-to-Linkification.pdf  This builds on discussions we had post the UASG meeting in Seattle in April.


We are also working on an evaluation of Linkification in major Social Media Communication applications.   (Here’s the link to the Help Wanted advertisement -  <https://uasg.tech/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Help-Wanted%E2%80%A6-Linkification-Evaluation-1.0.pdf> Help Wanted: Linkification Evaluation)


This evaluation is being built on a replicable testing platform so that we can readily repeat the process in the future.   While early days, we expect to provide a preliminary report during the ICANN60 meeting.   As we go through the testing it is raising some additional questions about our Good Practice guide and expectations.  We fully expect that once the evaluation is completed we’ll again review UASG010 based on real world experiences.
