@Krinkle do I understand correctly that T222533 suggests a message to be shown to users who try emptying/editing their watchlists, notifying them that it might take a while?
My suggestion is to show something that will prevent users from adding too many pages to their watchlists in the first place, before they face T41510 bug. Let users know about the limitations in place.
Fri, Feb 7
If this bug is persistent, can we add a suggestion line "Consider maintaining your watchlist at less than 5k pages" or a warning line "Your watchlist exceeded 5k pages and Edit button might not work" somewhere? I mean, being honest is appreciated.

Yay, thank you all! I'm glad it's officially a known bug/feature =)

My apologies, @Lea_Lacroix_WMDE, do you by chance know whom should I ping so that this task gets triaged? I'd be grateful to know whether it's an issue or it's nothing to worry about :)

This task wasn't resolved in its intended form but there were interviews with Wikipedians who teach:

I expect the number to go down later on. Some mentors will be away for some periods of time and some people, I suppose, may later change their minds about being mentors at all.
What I have worries about is that not all the people who signed up to be mentors will actually be good/active mentors. But that is not something I can surely predict or avoid with my knowledge of community.

Well, yes, but I would not suggest Growth projects wait until ukwiki is done updating all the help pages. There is no certainty in how long that might take. For now I'm happy to have 5 basic pages and a bunch of mentors.

What Piramidion described looks like one and the same issue for me: he is not able to save his edit because there is no change to save: the content of the unit is already correct (to assume that page history of the translation unit is correct); there is no edit in page history of the translation unit that corresponds to the wrongly shown content, we just 'see' it.
Oct 12 2019
- Piramidion is our backup contact here.
- Thanks to the clarification, I consulted with some users and we didn't come up with other namespaces that should not be monitored (apart from mandatory ones).
- As for the help links, there is a complex situation with help pages in ukwiki -- they are mostly about editing in wikitext mode. I assumed, that it's ok when the first link of the five leads to the page where a newcomer is immediately informed about the two possible editing modes, and then there is a page about VE. Most newcomers I've seen (unreliable source for the generalisation, I know) use VE anyway.
How is a mentor determined as 'away'? By presence of Template:Wikibreak on their page, being inactive for several days, some other sign?

I'm not sure I understand the parts about namespaces. Isn't it decided in the project already which namespaces to cover with help panel etc.? Should there be a community discussion? I used example of T223619 when filling it in here.

@Anomie, thank you for pointing out to the exact problem of that page - as an end editor I find error message a bit too vague.

@Richard_Nevell_WMUK dashboard looks fine to me now. Do you still have troubles?

@Trizek-WMF, I need to get translations done first, it may take some time :|

I wonder, which part of the common signature needs it.

Not than I understand the details of the discussion ...but here I am as an uploader: if I have files affected with this exif-reading issue and no purging helped, can I give you (some mystical folks with the script) a list of files and hope for the better? Like, I've read a dozen of tickets on the rotation parameters from exif failure in Mediawiki and the corresponding dozen of discussions on Commons village pump... - just where should I go to have a bunch of files fixed, if possible?

User:Dars faced the same problem in uk.wiki recently. "Number of edits to show in expanded watchlist" and number of days to show appeared to be zero. Though he swears that changed nothing in his preferences. Can it be some bug or more likely to be accidental change from user side?

Any problems spotted in svwiki?

Just to add a few trifles:
Random sample of groupings: Живите, живила, живить are forms of the verb to nourish, to feed for living, while живим is a form of adjective alive (btw, живимо would be a verb form as well). These are just different parts of language, so this is what was expected, right?
Unexpected groupings: Стели, стели, стелю vs шлем -- I don't get, why шлем is in this group.
Stemming splits: (beyond my understanding right now, sorry).

The similarity I see among all the four users mentioned — they do not have enwiki in their SUL. I tested adding to the course users who went to English Wikipedia, it's working.

@Ejegg, am I right: you abandoned the change because it allows not to fall back on Russian? Or was it just a description for the change? (what's the issue in there then?) Sorry, just to be clear :)

Community consensus is not enough, linguistic researches which show that Russian is not the nearest language are not enough. What on Earth is needed to change the thing we ask to change?

I am completely a newbie and my first query thanks to this session is this. Now I have 43 entries of people born in Ukraine before year 1890 with no death date which I will need to check :) Thanks a lot for the session.

@DStrine, everything is translated on the links you mentioned so I guess the problem is not there.
I was talking about the file attached to the description of this task. Someone (even me) can translate it if it's still relevant and if this specific thing is the one that prevents Ukrainian version from being. ( I just don't want to start translation if it was/is made by some WMF translator already.)
May 25 2016
Should/is attached resource file translated? Just wondering what stage is this task on O:)
