Whenever I use the DateTimeInputWidget at Special:NewFiles it's always a frustrating experience. Here's what happens:
- I click on the input field, which pops open the selector below it.
- I try to scroll down to the selector (since it's always at least partially below the fold on my screen).
- Instead of scrolling down, the date spins wildly like a roulette wheel and I end up at some date in the 1940s.
The DateTimeInputWidget should not hijack my scrolling. Instead it should have a simple interface for changing the month or year like DateInputWidget does, IMO.
This is using the standard page scroll gesture in MacOSX (vertical 2-finger swipe) in any browser (Firefox, Safari, Chrome), which triggers the wheel and DOMMouseScroll events.
