Add a button "more" to the compact language link gadget
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Given that I have a slightly elevated confidence in my own language skills
And that I try to fiddle with CLL to get more language links
When I click a "more" button in the sidebar (perhaps under the language links)
Then I will see an even longer list of language links

An additional link to "show more" could perhaps change into a "show all" after the first click.

Something like that would lower the noise level at nowiki, which is somewhat high after CLL was turned on. See for example Kompakte språklenker skrudd på for denne wikien i dag. It is mostly the usual fighting, it seems like most people like the feature.

Note that the author hasn't any strong opinion on this, it is just a proposed solution to on-going discussions.

I wonder if this should be a sticky preference that survives pageloads. If I do something that require more language links, then I would probably want it to stay so over several pageloads.

Don't add to much under the language list, the space is somewhat cramped!

Added a description on T140569: Add a "dismiss" button to compact language links describing how I would do this, but feel free!

One common argument seems to be that users have a somewhat large number of frequently visited languages.
