so, at some point (don't remember exactly when - today was the first time i noticed), the hovercard's text began to fade at the end, i guess to give a hint that there's more.
personally, i don;'t think this is a good idea, but this is a different story. this report is about the fact that this fade-out is broken in RTL wikis: instead of fading the last word (or last part of the sentence), it fades the _rightmost_ part of the last line of the overcard, which happens to be some random word in the middle of the sentence.
- log in to wiki account.
- open hebrew wikipedia
- go to preferences => beta
- enable hovercards (if you find it difficult, add ?uselang=en to the address line)
- open random page and hover over a random internal link
WHAT IS EXPECTED
the last word in the hovercard text fades out (personally, i will not be sorry to see this behavior go away - it doesn't add any value, and i think it's silly. why not let me read the last word too?)
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS
The rightmost word in the last line of the hovercard is smudged or disappeared. remember that the rightmost word is not the last one in RTL languages.
verified that same problem exists in fawiki, and i assume in any other RTL wiki.
