Sdkb added a comment to T138933: Explore moving the Panoviewer gadget/Tool Labs tool into production.

@Aklapper, this task ranked highly in the most recent community wishlist and the Community Tech team's subsequent prioritization process, so I'm not sure describing it as "lowest" is accurate. I certainly hope it's not considered that unimportant.

Sdkb added a comment to T290376: Better display warning text on Special:CreateAccount.

As I requested at T282494, I think the best solution is to move the advice about usernames to just below the username field, just as the advice on choosing a password is just below the password field.

Sdkb added a comment to T289799: [REQUEST] Investigate decrease in New Registered Users.

Thanks for creating this, @kzimmerman. One thing that might be part of this story is a change to the Create:Account page on English Wikipedia, which added a warning at this top about usernames. Perhaps this is deterring some users. I know that it began in the last year, but I'm not sure when. And I don't think other wikis have done similar things.

Sdkb added a comment to T288161: Enable CodeMirror's Syntax Highlighting on English Wikipedia by default.

Many new editors were previously IP editors, and therefore do have some expectations about the interface. Some IP editors (for whom this ticket proposes enabling by default) have made thousands of edits over many years, and therefore also have some expectations about the interface.

Thanks for the update, TheDJ. I might have structured the proposal a little differently if I'd known that doing things differently for new vs. current editors would be so difficult, but the way I did it probably made it easiest to achieve consensus. If ignoring inactive editors would make things easier, that probably would be fine, as they're unlikely to complain since they're, well, inactive.

Sdkb added a comment to T284607: Do not include references in copy and paste.

The concern about attribution is worth considering. I don't think it's really feasible to try to block people from copying from Wikipedia, though, even if we wanted to—we'd have to try to disable copy and paste entirely to do that. Our license indicates that text drawn from Wikipedia must be attributed, and beyond that, it's on users to make sure they use the ability wisely.

@zhuyifei1999 oh oops, that one was from a while ago so I must've misremembered which tool I used; apologies about that (it seems videoconvert may have the same scrubbing problem?). Anyways, I believe I also encountered the issue more recently with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Claremont_Taiko_performance.webm. I tried to upload the original file with this comment for comparison, but it gave an error. Again, all one needs to do to replicate the issue is to take an mp4 video file with metadata, upload it to Commons via video2commons, and notice that the metadata has disappeared.

Sdkb added a comment to T285810: Enable a method of recording fair use images on Wikidata.

@ChristianKl, the reason I brought it to phab is that I hope it might be possible to create a way to link to fair use images in a similar way as we link to Commons files, just without actually displaying them. That'd reduce the possibility for errors, would help if e.g. a file is moved, and only having to store a filename rather than a full URL just seems cleaner.

This issue recently came up at the en-WP Village Pump. It looks like this came up during the development of packed mode here. But the decision to just ignore it doesn't really make sense—as Dvorapa said above, if there's a gallery with 4 images and 3 per line, it should go onto a second line. At some point it would need to override the setting, as we don't want tiny images, but that's what it does already with the widths and height parameters, which it treats as suggestions rather than requirements. The behavior should be the same here.

Sdkb added a comment to T284970: Video2commons scrubbing metadata.

This is running up pretty fast against the limits of my technical knowledge, unfortunately. What I know is just that when I tried to upload videos like File:Contra dancers at the 2019 Flurry Festival.webm (by downloading from my Google Photos account and then uploading via Video2Commons), the metadata I'd have liked to have seen (e.g. date, location) got scrubbed. Doing the same process with photos rather than videos (without Video2Commons) preserves the metadata, so I'm pretty sure the loss is happening while using it to convert format.

The existing wikimedia-createacct-helpusername appears above the input field, and is used on en-WP for a (help me choose) link. Presumably very few people actually click on that link and read the monstrositously long policy, which is why the bold MediaWiki:Signupstart was created. I'd like for a field to be created below the input field, just like with the current password advice. Then yes, MediaWiki:Signupstart could be either blanked or changed to something more friendly/welcoming. Essentially, I think the logical place for the username instruction to go is the place where people are actually choosing their username.

A task related to this was included in the most recent community wishlist. It didn't score that highly (I'd guess because people didn't understand what it was from the title), which is unfortunate, as it's very important. For Wikidata to address its dire vandalism problem, it badly needs the help of Wikipedians monitoring their watchlist. But many Wikipedians have and will continue to turn off Wikidata updates so long as they continue to spam watchlists with "Jane Smith was just labeled Jane Smith in Polish" updates, or P and Q changes are displayed as just meaningless numbers. Please let the community know if we can be of any help with this, and I hope it is prioritized.

Sdkb added a comment to T217914: Prevent accidental logouts on desktop Vector skin when using a mobile device.

This was recently proposed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Log_out_second_chance. My reading of the consensus so far from here and there is that there is more support than opposition.

Sdkb added a comment to T218097: [Bug] Some OSM relations didn't become polygons and are not been served through geoshapes service or geoline service.

I'm glad to see this marked as high priority. I just waded around a bunch trying to figure out why I wasn't able to get the Maplink template working before finding this.

Sdkb added a comment to T201595: Mobile web (and Minerva desktop) does not present edit notices.

I'll second everything TheDJ just said — streamlining things like edit notices is a task I've been working on, but it's often quite difficult to build consensus. One alternative might be to create some parameter that'd allow designation of which edit notices are essential enough to be needed for mobile and which can be desktop-only.

Sdkb added a comment to T70689: User Preference's default options/values should be automatically marked in the special page itself.

FYI: This idea was recently brought up at the en-WP Village Pump, where it has received strong support so far. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Clearly_display_each_Default_setting_at_Special:Preferences

Sdkb added a comment to T250929: Make the revision info notice on permanent links sticky as the user scrolls.

@Xaosflux, the issue has nothing to do with edit mode or readers being logged in. When you follow the example I linked above, it takes you to an old revision and also starts you scrolled half way down the page, which means you don't initially see the old revision notice.

Are there any additional tags that I should add to this ticket to help it show up in front of the right project for it to be actioned?

Sdkb added a comment to T117122: Investigation: Related changes by category, including main and talk namespaces (for WikiProjects).

Adding another use case to this, it would be useful for creating a "go to random vital article" button, which I don't know of a way to code otherwise.

Sdkb added a comment to T250937: Noinclude with the VisualEditor.

@matmarex thanks! The noinclude tags are being used because of the spread of excerpts — they allow, for instance, leads of articles on aspects of the pandemic that start with "during the COVID-19 pandemic" to just say "during the pandemic" when transcluded to the COVID-19 pandemic article.
