(I think a workaround would be not to use VE. Could not hold myself.)

Well, you can always trick someone. Just as you probably can shoplift and get away with it. That is not the point in case of 95%+ of cases.

Base added a comment to T161963: Punctuation is often language dependant.

Each citation is unique OK but I do not see why it must hinder have something like "Mediawiki:Visualeditorwhatever-citoid-dashbetwixtnums" as a non-compulsory localisable message which then will be used in those situations instead of a hardcoded ndash somewhere.

Base added a comment to T161963: Punctuation is often language dependant.

I have no idea what this task is about as I do not use VE, but Ukrainian also uses — instead of – in all situations and «» for quotations. («“”» for two level). In Mediawiki localisation of stuff like this is done on TWN in non-compulsory messages, I guess rather than hardcoding typography for specific languages you should use that.

Base added a comment to T165221: CentralNotice messages are not indexed in the Translate index.

Hm, though it this case it looks that ns8 page was created through workflow state change, so this probably means that the problem you described exists even when people dance the tune the current system dictates, I was wrong.

Base added a comment to T165221: CentralNotice messages are not indexed in the Translate index.

Translate tracks CNBanner ns translation and skips direct additions to ns8. Perfectly not only should ns8 be autoedited on workflow state setting to Published for CNBanner but vice versa synchronisation should exist. Now it happens occasionally that people with ns8 namespace access fix translations directly, then someone fixes something else in CNBanner copy, that one gets published and this yields in the ns8 fix being overwritten. Awkward system really, as I see why people do those direct ns8 edits — it takes one action and not 2 + autoedit (edit CNBanner copy, set workflow state, "win" another edit on doing the latter action)

I guess this does count as an investigation :), but it is worth to check the thing Marco mentioned, I actually think that group was still there on the acc. If groups remain on the accounts after they are deleted it looks like a problem to be solved worth a separate task (it makes sense for deletion of a group to trigger removing all the people from it). And yeah, another one is to clean the db off such records already present. This task after or even before that might be considered resolved probably, imho.

Why are existing Help pages bad? I might be naïve, but I truly believe that board members who have no problems to read long official letters and grant applications and reports would have no problem reading the existing docs, so would other active organisation members.

Old Operas are used by some orthodox Opera fans who want to use it as it was before it became just another Chromium browser. I think at least latest version on its own engine should still be supported for some years
