Adding: This is relevant only to vector users. Other skins are not affected.

So the (talk) link should be before the Username link in RTL, right ?

No, after. From right to left - name (talk) preferences

The regression is from . It introduces manual echoing of some elements and takes them out of their order in the array.

I suppose that the global $wgVectorCombineUserTalk can be eliminated by now.

Merged, waiting for deployment.

Patch here:

Reverted in Re-opening this bug for now while I have the tab open.

Another attempt here:

I simply removed the parentheses, which seemed to be the most controversial issue.

Patch merged -> marking as fixed.

I reopened bug 41672 in case we want to reimplement this.

Does no-one feel that the parentheses were a nice to have feature? ANyone going to try to reimplement them?

Yes, I'd like to. I found the experience a bit stressful so I'm stepping away from it with the intention of picking it back up in a few days.

Understood :) Thanks for your work on the issue, I came to quite like the new format.
