Base added a comment to T275293: FlaggedRevs does not give sysops the review right.

On the other hand it seems that the change makes sense for Macedonian WP, per https://mk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Википедија:Барања_за_оценувачки_статус it seems that they tie together administrator and review rights: "Администраторите се автоматски и оценувачи".

Base added a comment to T275293: FlaggedRevs does not give sysops the review right.

ukwiki also had a process for existing admins to agree to the new patrolling rules (which were completely different from new page patrol rules) back in June 2012 or so when FR was enabled. It is by design that some admins can potentially lose their editor flag and not be able to patrol. The communities should be notified about this change (perfectly the order should have been the opposite and the change done only after communities agreed). I will create a ticket for ukwiki to explicitly remove the permission from sysop later.

Base added a comment to T3605: [[Section::...]] variables.

As a workaround a js solution can indeed be used. But this requires building a custom gadget for each use case or some big onwiki infrastructure to have room for flexibility. Few wikis will be able to do it because of lack of technical expertise. Also JS solution is prone to jumpiness, failures to load on slow internet, etc. Not to mention people who might have js disabled.

Base added a comment to T261694: Support maps serving for affiliate sites via an allow list.

Perhaps a known issue and not strictly related to this ticket, but it is referenced in the error, is that when I follow a link to maps.wikimedia.org in Facebook mobile app I stumble upon a 403 error page. It is not obvious that as simple action as opening it in the browser proper would remove the error. Rather it given an impression that service is down until you read the small script ecplaining which error it is exactly.

Restricted Application added a project to T100313: Install Translate extension on wikitech: cloud-services-team (Kanban).

What is blocking this task? I would very much like to help translating some Toolforge documentation to Ukrainian as well as help lay some pages out with Translate tags. If there are concerns about some particular pages, e.g. you want to have them reworked before making them translatable, then they simply won't be tagged for translation. It is being done manually on page by page, translatable unit by translatable unit anyway.

I am not sure it is a problem. The main logo is likely already cached in most people's browsers, and the other logo is not bigger than literally any image in any article. Either people save traffic by having images disabled completely, or downloading another 250px or so picture is not an issue for them.

Base added a comment to T256887: Enable ORES filters for ukwiki (Ukrainian Wikipedia).

Thank you! I have a general question: if I understand correctly, I am not really aware of the terminology here, you mention above that the model for ukwiki is not as good as it is for other wikis. I assume this will have some consequences for the usability of the filters? Is it immutable or there are ways to improve the model? (Or perhaps it can self improve basing on what is being reverted or some other feed?)

I think I mostly avoid clicking on it, because I am not sure what clicking does (it is not obvious that it won't change my TZ preference right away). I guess I can try and see if/when it returns.

Since the upsteam issue does not seem to be moving anywhere can we just fix this with some local CSS/JS? It is most annoying, especially when using Phabricator on mobile so the popup takes a major part of the screen.

Base added a comment to T271249: Update TextCat / Language ID documentation.

It should also be interlinked with Help on Cirrus Search. When attempting to find how cross wiki search works I could only find some userspace subpages and some old notes, and I have no idea how I could have learned that the thing is called "TextCat" to begin with.

Base added a comment to T9996: Paging for Special:Undelete.

Is there some particular issue that is stopping this from being implemented? I recently had to undelete w:de:Wikipedia:Administratoren/Anfragen (at that moment circa 107,000 revisions) — the special page was not loading at all (a 5xx error with a DB timeout), I had to resolve to writing a script to restore it in batches of 500 via API. Also even when it loads for big pages it takes ages for it to be returned and then for the browser to render it, I have experienced this on undeleting w:es:Anexo:Estaciones de radio de México for example, which is under 20,000 revisions.

Base added a comment to T270628: Delete Translation: namespace to Ukrainian Wikisource.

Deleting a namespace would mean that all pages that are/were in it (deleted or not) would be inaccessible without sysadmin intervention, since the system would no longer recognize the namespace properly.

I think there is a maintenance script to fix this. At least it is supposed to be applied when a new namespaces or new interwiki prefixes are being added. It is also possible to move them via API using page ids, rather than page names, but it is indeed easier to move them beforehand :)

Base added a comment to T228745: Allow creating an independent "incubator wiki" instead of hosting all new wikis in one Incubator wiki with prefixes.

What happens when a production wiki gets closed? Currently the flow includes importing its content back to incubator, having the main wiki only editable by stewards, and then subsequently reimport of the updated pages when the wiki gets to be reopened, IIRC. What would the flow look like if we have separate incubator instances?
