HLHJ added a comment to T320585: 2012 draft of a user agreement to disclose IPs and passwords; status?.

Thank you for the explaination. So it'd need an entirely seperate server to relay the mail, and proxy the IPs, and it would be unreliable and probably not worthwhile?

HLHJ added a comment to T320585: 2012 draft of a user agreement to disclose IPs and passwords; status?.

You're quite right, for most cases. But the people who really need to keep their identities private may well be living in countries where free e-mail providers like Gmail are blocked, and registering a domain is not the easiest task to do anonymously. These approaches have their own attack surface. Private, individual countermeasures to control e-mail leaks are also more complex for the user to implement.

HLHJ added a comment to T133452: RFC: Create temporary accounts for anonymous editors.

Having two levels of Checkuser right, one for users who have created accounts and a lower-level one for those who haven't, seems sensible. This would be pretty similar to having cloaks.

What is the status of stuff related to the confusing 2012 draft of a user agreement to disclosure of IPs and passwords, which seems to be partly contradicted by its talk page and maybe be part of the terms and conditions for some projects (Cloud services?

I'm not in the least questioning your judgement. Thank you for all the work you've put into this, and apologies if I've asked questions that can't be publicly answered. If Lilypond has seriously intractable security problems, would the LGPL Verovio be useful? It renders SVG scores from MEI, MusicXML/~MNX, **kern, and Plaine and Easie. MEI is an academic format that strives to be cross-cultural, so should handle archaic notation.

HLHJ added a comment to T208494: Allow music scores to be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.

A minor lyrical winkle. If we could store scores on Commons, we could transclude them into other wikis as we do images, and avoid repeatedly re-transcribing them. But lyrics would be best stored and transcluded seperately, because it's common for one score to have multiple sets of lyrics.

It seems as though the main problem may be that if you have any text in the reply tool, it will never drop it, even if you reload the page. It really wants to recover your unsaved changes.

Thanks, Matamrex! I can confirm that if I disable the "Show preview without reloading the page" setting at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion, the recursive step of the bug does not appear. You still get both editors open simultaneously, tho (the part I described as "oddly" in the OP). I'm fairly sure that setting is enabled by default.

So does this need to be moved back to "Backlog"? Wikisource has a fair number of transcriptions hanging on this resolution, including some which were already finished and proofread before the "Score" problems were noticed and now won't display. What needs to be disabled for security?

This is closely related and so I'll add it as a comment here. If the filename is overlong, the image file has already been uploaded, or there are forbidden characters in the filename (including invisible whitespace characters), the upload fails with the same error message ("Error Upload failed").

Goals of the feature

  • make inline tagging faster and easier by semi-automating it
  • make inline tagging more common, as it was pre-2007, when editor retention rates were higher and vandalism rates lower (semi-automated tools were developed to respond to rising vandalism)
  • improve newcomer editing skills more quickly, so that newcomers can fix their own early edits, reducing the burden on experienced editors
  • give desirable new editors prompt, constructive criticism (there is evidence this improves editor recruitment)
  • improve the retention of flawed but fixable edits by new editors (there is evidence this improves editor recruitment)
  • reverse the post-2007 slow decline in the number of active editors, and return to exponential growth in the number of active editors

HLHJ updated subscribers of T214028: Enable uploads for Braille music (.brf) on Commons.

Gently disagreeing with @Jc86035 on screen rendering. The Braille format also has a visual web display, the thing I called a "colour-coded sighted isomorphism" of Braille. It is really useful if one is sighted and used to reading text and colours (we might want to check if said colours are colourblind-safe). It would be very helpful to transcribers to have this visual interface.

HLHJ added a comment to T214019: Enable uploads for MuseScore files (.mscz or .mscx) on Commons.

I'd agree that an extension based on MuseScore software seems problematic, for the reasons above and for reasons discussed in the RfC. To summarize, MuseScore software is partly open-source, but not copyleft, and may therefore be made closed-source at any time. The community centers around a single commercial website with licensed non-free content as a major draw, and the website/company/software has already undergone one takeover. The desktop version is open, but the online/mobile version is proprietary, raising issues of systemic bias given the large number of people worldwide with no desktop. For these reasons, and the low support in the RfC, I would suggest that this format be a lower priority.
