Alexia added a comment to T165981: Implement a prototype JavaScript review system for MediaWiki.

On Gamepedia we use a vetting process before giving people administrator level access and we actively engage with the administrators in our IRC/Slack channels. However, an extension like this would be useful once the number of wikis/admins grow past what is reasonable to handle. As for taking over accounts we have our own AuthenticationProvider and SessionProvider that more or less mitigates those possibilities.(I won't say it is impossible though!)

Alexia added a comment to T151770: Frequent loss of session data (since around 2016-11-28).

I can confirm that our editors at Gamepedia are experiencing the same issue with *.gamepedia.com wikis. Our top wiki editors primarily use Firefox and they all began to experience this issue after upgrading to Firefox 50 in November 2016. Since there are many wikis they visit they regularly break that 150 cookie limit. I tested and checked this with an editor today observing that despite cookies being set on individual subdomains(example.gamepedia.com) Firefox is keeping a limit of 150 cookies for the whole of gamepedia.com.

Alexia added a comment to T135876: setupSkinUserCss (Hook SkinVectorStyleModules) is no longer called..

That doesn't explain anything. I still don't see why the small change in when the hook gets called broke your extension. The function is still called, and it's still called with the same parameters. So is the hook in Vector.

That change was part of https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/273745/ by @Krinkle.

The setupSkinUserCss() method should still be called from OutputPage::buildCssLinks(). Is that not working for you for some reason?

Alexia added a comment to T101652: Unclosed "Enlarge" <a> tag from thumbnail is leaking on Special:BookSources.

Here is a very simple way to reproduce it tossing it into any page. $wgTidyConfig is the default of null and $wgUseTidy is the default of false. I have not figured out a fix yet.

Alexia added a comment to T126644: Investigation: Gamepedia's cross-wiki watchlist code.

The develop branch contains several untested fixes that should make it easier to run it outside the Hydra Wiki Platform.

  • Switched to CentralIdLookup factory.
  • Renamed $dsSiteKey to $wgSiteKey - This will have to be defined per site configuration.
  • Database schema updates will run if the site being updated has $wgSiteKey set to 'master'.

Yes, it is on my list to make open source. I am not entirely sure it will be usable in its current state due it being a memory hog. My 20% time is on Fridays so I will look at this tomorrow and sanitize any strings that might be considered proprietary before pushing it up to GitHub.

Alexia added a comment to T108616: Local path disclosure when using ImageMagick as a scaler.

I investigated the GraphicsMagick issue. At some point they merged in the "+set Thumb::URI" fix/feature, but I can not find it in their change logs. The recommendation I have is for people using it to make sure they are running the latest version.

Alexia added a comment to T5525: Cross-wiki watchlists.

The GlobalWatchlist extension that runs on Gamepedia is tied heavily into the Curse account system to be able to use a single user identifier. Exactly like the global_id used by Extension:CentralAuth. Releasing it in its current state would result in code that is unusable by anyone else. There are future plans for the team, one year or more, to rework the Curse account system so that extensions that rely on it can be easily decoupled.
