Ahecht added a comment to T226050: Quarry running slow and timing out.

This doesn't seem to be limited to quarry. Queries that had been running in about 15 minutes on quarry and through https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Legoktm/toolforge_library are now timing out on both. The issue appears to be with the database servers themselves.

Ahecht added a comment to T5324: On redirect pages, "article" tab in top bar should lead to nonredirected page (&redirect=no).

I would agree that the intended behavior of the "Article" button, when on a talk/history page of a redirect, should be to link to the redirect itself. The number of times an editor wants to go directly from the redirect talk page to the redirect target is small compared to the number of times the editor wants to go to the redirect itself.

Ahecht added a comment to M270: UI/UX redesign.

Only using 40% of the page width for the actual article text seems quite low, and makes the page look cluttered (despite all the whitespace). Vector, by comparison, uses around 80%.

Ahecht added a comment to T198370: Transparent background renders as white in PNG thumbnails.

Since potentially tens of thousands differrnt sized thumbnails were affected by this bug, will the server eventually regenerate all of these, or will they need to be purged manually?

Ahecht added a comment to T72470: Remove legacy javascript globals.

We're still cleaning up the mess caused by switching from Tidy to RemexHTML, and on larger wikis such as enwiki tech-savvy editors will still be needed to working on the hundreds of thousands of pages with broken rendering for the forseeable future. Breaking all the old scripts and gadgets "soon" (as specified in the Tech News blurb) would be a disaster. This is only compounded by the roll out of the Interface Administrator group later this month, which means that gadgets and scripts in the mediawiki namespace or in the namespace of inactive users will only be able to be fixed by the very small number of editors granted this permission.

Ahecht added a comment to T193075: Create the 'Event coordinator' user group on English Wikipedia.

While I agree with @Andrew_Davidson that there is no real harm in perminantly granting confirmed status, the 10-day limit was the main difference between this successful RfC and the previous failed one. From what I understand, even "confirmed" users will get "autoconfirmed" status after 4days/10 edits, so "confirmed" dropping off will be transparent to them.

The easiest solution which wouldn't have to be hardcoded for certain images would be to have the app's dark mode invert any image who's alt parameter begins with a "\". There should be almost no non-symbol images whose alt text would begin with a backslash.

Ahecht added a comment to T106516: Greyscale pngs without gAMA chunk rendered with incorrect contrast [or setting the gamma in GIMP exports to PNG].

While we're waiting for someone else to take this up, a workaround on a per-image basis is to download the image, convert it to grayscale using a more recent version of Imagemagick on your local computer (using "convert {input_image} -type GrayScale -depth 8 gray.png", and re-uploading it. It would be nice, however, if this were fixed on the server somehow.

I still don't see what problem MZMcBride and their friend were trying to solve. There was no real problem with the way tables had been displayed for years on Wikipedia, and while some tables might be improved by this change, a large number have become difficult to view for readers with smaller or lower-resolution screens. For most font sizes, a padding of 0.2em is already larger than the 1px HTML default.
