MediaWiki:Contributions-title/ru

  • is expected to: dependence on the gender of whose contributions can be seen

Re-opening, not everything has been fixed.

Is there any complexity to adding this to page title? MediaWiki:Contributions already has gender support, but the parameter is not being passed to the message on Special:Contributions, would it be hard to do? (Not asking to nudge people, but rather to know if I can submit a patch.)

It is now removed, because it was not working as expected in that location - https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/core/+/645454

Frankly, I do not get the rationale for this. If the message text is User contributions, it should be able to display [Female user] contributions in gendered languages in the page title, because otherwise women get misgendered by the interface. If that is simply impossible, then it should’ve been edited simply to Contributions for translation purposes in your patch.

(I will abandon my untested patch for adding that support, though, I guess.)

The problem is that one message was used in different situation, even without a user context and that was fixed by splitting the message.

After this it is possible to revisit the situation and may fix it properly.

Adding Regression because GENDER support used to work well on page title.

GENDER support is requested in fr.wp too.

I don’t understand how the change is useful: MediaWiki:contributions seems to be still used as page heading, and does not still support GENDER.

As the linked page lacks input, by which username should the title be GENDER'd?

My bad, that’s actually good: the username is only expected when it is provided, on Special:Contributions/username, not on Special:Contributions itself (since no specific user are pointed).
Sorry, and thank you for the fix!
