bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Gerrit 156489 deliberately set the needed textarea and buttons in flow_newtopic_form to style="display:none" in order to "Avoid flash of unstyled content on new topic form." JS then makes them visible on click.

On the standalone new-topic page both JS and no-JS should simply show the entire form from the start.

An alternative is to use the client-{,no}js classes to control display, but that would mean doing useless JS work and would have to tweak to avoid the FOUC flash. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Coding_conventions/CSS#client-js_and_client-nojs

Possible fix in gerrit 163993

Bug 72068 is another bug with no-JS new topic.

I mean possible fix is in gerrit 166711

WFM on beta labs.
