Hovercards feature suggestion: Option for users to see maintenance templates on previewed page
Open, LowPublic

Description

An editor suggests (in the second point of https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Tb42ves6zs2v7nda)
Adding an optional feature for editors, so that they can turn on partial rendering of the maintenance tags at the top of the article:

By default, hovercards do not show tags that are on articles. While I understand the reasoning for this, it would be useful if the hovercard could indicate if a deletion tag is on the article. Others may have a desire to see other tags that might be on the article. One way to accommodate the various needs of different users would be to have an opt-in to show tags. It wouldn't be necessary to fully expand the tag -- instead just show whatever appears within the curly braces, up to the first pipe -- and perhaps highlight it with some color. This would only apply to tags at the top of the article, within the text that the hovercard normally grabs.

This makes sense upon iteration on current hovercards functionality.

Just to note, that I commented in the linked topic:

However, it '''is''' possible to do this with Navigation popups already, if you tweak your js, to include popupPreviewKillTemplates=false; - See an example in this edit of how I added it to my global.js - See screenshot of results in use. - See Navigation_popups#Configuration (optional) for that and the many other options.

Needs design input, @Nirzar?

Sounds reasonable. Priority up to @ovasileva, let me know if I should put up some wireframes to get feedback.

@Nirzar - I think this is still low priority for the time being, it would make more sense to create some wireframes for this once we decide on the first iteration on hovercards from a functional perspective

Before being pushed to the whole world, hovercards (or whatever they are called now) should at least show a warning sign when the relevant article has serious 'issues' like poor sources etc.
