Billinghurst added a comment to T202684: Import the old per-year Wikimania wikis into the new Wikimania wiki, each under their namespace.

What would be the purpose of retaining them? In the scheme of things these wikis are tiny and the space and infrastructure debt would presumably be negligible, so the issue would be the value of keeping them as separate copies.

I ran into this when I was unable to block https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?target=Printf%28%22Herro+World%22%29%3B&title=Special:Contributions. All the user links in revision histories, etc., use path-style parameters which produce a broken link such as Special:Block/Printf("Herro_World");. Until this is fixed, we can use AbuseFilter to disallow creation of usernames/pages with semicolons.

I examined the logs for a few examples of mine (a few months ago), and it seems that AbuseFilter kicks in for old revisions as well, so it seems for me that the only solution is to have the OTRS tag not have been added ever, which is impossible, of course.

Billinghurst added a comment to T216525: Add wikimania.wikimedia.org to pageview definition.

As we are going to a continuous hosting of wikimanias, and are meant to be importing 10+ years of works it should give indications of what and where we are seeing historic viewing.

Billinghurst added a comment to T247185: Turn off direct account creations at Wikimania, at least for periods of time.

I have created a simple message within`Mediawiki:Loginprompt` that has a link to meta's create account page.

Did this get discussed at any point?

@Aklapper I did the task and had it fixed at the time, left as others were continuing part of the conversation re the consequences.

I would think that we would add the comment that this is known for about 10 years and English wikisources have been managing this using placeholders like

@awight, I believe you will find https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/570376 quite fascinating, if not funny. As it turns out one of the chunks of code that motivated this ticket here is not even needed.

Billinghurst added a comment to T172953: Create OOUI widget for Index page pagelists.

@Billinghurst: I agree, and I think the wider topic of Index page's metadata and how it works with Wikidata etc. is going to take some greater thought. This task is specifically not looking at any of that, and focussing only on an easier way to create a <pagelist /> so that editors don't have to have multiple tabs and files open when doing so. Do you think the proposed system sounds good for this? i.e. viewing each page in a zoomable popup etc.

Billinghurst added a comment to T49544: <references/> list item must not wrap the text in <span>.

Not allowing block elements in references is absolutely intentional; I'm Declining this.

Tagging major functional changes like this as "Easy" is pretty disrespectful to people, given that it's a huge change and reversing a very long-standing intentional choice.

Sorry that I didn't see this until now, especially to @Aashaka.

I find that if there is a good {{book}} template that this is pretty easy with the gadget in place, though find that the triangle of WS <=> Commons <=> Wikidata could really be tightened in a push <-> pull data to make sure that each aligns. That is truly problematic when each does not have maximum data.
