Bdijkstra created T267337: Page moves that cause category changes don't result in changelist items.

Bdijkstra added a comment to T205959: API option to prevent changing sitelink on page move.

I think I've found a potential work-around via a comment in UpdateRepoHookHandler.php: "This only works if there's a user account with the same name on the repo." I've certainly seen article moves by new users that weren't reflected in Wikidata, but I'm not sure exactly what causes this to happen. Also I'm not sure if there is a reliable way to prevent a user account from being automatically created on Wikidata.

Bdijkstra added a comment to T264440: nds-nlwiki wrong namespace alias "Overleg kattegerie".

Thanks. While checking links to pages in this namespace, I noticed one redirect which was broken by this bug: Overleg kategorie:Nedersaksische humor. However, it isn't reported in Special:BrokenRedirects. Should it have?

Each "broken redirect" should be reported by MediaWiki on Special:BrokenRedirects. I'm not sure why this happened. But, you can delete page (if you are sysop), or request (speedy) deletion on-wiki.

OK so now it works. I haven't set up BotPassword. Before making this ticket, I copied and pasted the password from the Windows clipboard in different ways, and verified that pasting worked by using Special:ChangePassword. In the command prompt window, I tried using Shift+Insert to paste, and Ctrl+V, and also with the mouse via the window menu. I hadn't thought of typing it; it is quite long. Just now I typed it in and it works. No idea why. The password has only ASCII characters.

@Jc86035 The wikitext parser puts some information in the database when it sees that magic word. The DiscussionTools extension uses that information, so subpages and templates are not a problem.

Bdijkstra added a comment to T235957: Change {{REVISIONID}} from number to "-" in wgMiserMode.

What is more helpful depends on your language skills, which I don't presume to know. Also I hadn't realised that most variations use a Lua module; I have no idea why they would do that, as it can be done with a single template expression, which the //nl// version does.

Thank you for suggesting we check this page, @Bdijkstra. A couple questions...

  1. Would I be correct to understand this page [i] and the entries contained inside of it as: the talk page of a user who has been blocked and the dates of the 9 vandalistic edits they made that led to them being blocked?

I guess you fixed only this example? I can perhaps produce more. I have a list of suspect items, though I don't know how to formulate a query to check all labels of one or more items. And then there are probably other bad labels sourced from other wikis and other problematic characters like the zero-width space...

Why not use 320px for thumb sizes ≤320px and let the browser do the scaling? I normally work at a browser zoom level of 110% or 125% depending on location.

There's no need to "sanitize" the plus signs, they are valid. The only requirement from the Wikipedia side of things is that the server accepts the URL verbatim, which it does.
