Certes added a comment to T311350: Quarry database name.

Ich finde den Vorschlag, die englischsprachige Wikipedia zur Standard-Wikipedia in Quarry zu erheben, deutlich irritierender. Die spanischsprachige Wikipedia z.B. hat die fünftgrößte Anzahl an aktiven Benutzer*innen – wohl kaum eine „unwahrscheinliche Option“, wenn man e eingibt.

Certes added a comment to T6716: Edit summary box should be a multiline input.

Please don't worry about disabling Enter. On the rare occasions I press it, it's accidental (attempting to insert a newline into wikitext) and I have to revisit the edit. I expect others have similar experiences, and we want to encourage previewing or at least viewing a diff.

Certes added a comment to T310325: s1 (enwiki) wiki replicas replication has stopped.

"Production" doesn't mean "for readers rather than editors". Readers come first, but editing tools help us to serve them well. One action by an editor may help thousands of readers.

Certes added a comment to T98941: Watchlist "Mark all visited" synchronization.

I came here to request this and am amazed that it's been open for seven years. It's not sophisticated; it's debatably a bug fix.

Certes added a comment to T290146: Pressing the Stop button in Quarry results in a 500 error.

Please don't remove the Stop feature. It sometimes works, and is better than nothing, both for users who (sometimes) get their query unlocked for fixing and for the servers which can cease wasting resources on pointless tasks. The feature really needs mending rather than removing.

Certes added a comment to T290146: Pressing the Stop button in Quarry results in a 500 error.

I may have a workaround:

  • tick the "Don't allow site to prompt you again" box on the 500 box (text varies by browser and language), or ad-block that box and its modal background
  • replace the query by a trivial one such as SELECT 123 /* keep old query here for reference */
  • click Stop and quickly click Submit Query

The query will complete, show the answer 123 and display the "Submit Query" button ready for re-use.
That's not ideal or intuitive; a proper fix would be much better!

Yes, my trivial query 61115 claims to have be running for nearly four months now, and the Stop button gives error 500. Can we at least do a one-off task to stop all queries which have been in running or queued state for more than, say, a week?

Certes added a comment to T14810: Special:Linksearch should default to all protocols (protocol-less column for externallinks).

Please fix. If you can really only handle one protocol by default, it should probably be https://

Certes added a comment to T261908: Make the custom edit summary functionality more discoverable.

Please consider showing the edit summary box by default, so no one has to discover a method to reveal it. This matches the UX when replying in the traditional way, and is a good use of space.

Certes added a comment to T303389: Edit conflicts not triggering reliably.

I've reproduced this misbehaviour in a sandbox, which may be invalid as both edits were by the same editor. I've also seen it in the wild with different editors. It's intermittent, but here are two scenarios which may make it more likely.
1: User:A starts editing page X; user:B moves page X to a new title Y, leaving a redirect X→Y; user:A publishes the change. This overwrites redirect X with a copy-paste move of a modified copy of Y.
2: User:A starts editing page X; user:B makes a quick section edit to X#Foo; user:A publishes the whole-page change. User:B's section changes are lost.

Bdijkstra: Have you tried installing riched20 in winetricks? That fixed it for me.

I reproduced the problem on enwiki_p, including https://quarry.wmcloud.org/query/61115 which should complete in milliseconds but claims to have run for more than a day.

I've now installed winetricks riched20, and neither Naypta nor I have seen the problem since. Here's hoping this is now Resolved.

Certes added a comment to T250937: Noinclude with the VisualEditor.

That may be a bug. <includeonly>...</includeonly> affects text between the opening and closing tags. <includeonly /> affects no text, and is not useful.

Certes added a comment to T253428: AWB inserts blank lines.

The Monza page has now changed and no longer shows the problem. I can reproduce it on enwiki [[1984 Monaco Grand Prix]], where it adds a blank line 351 even with default settings and unticking everything (no find and replace, no general fixes etc., no regex). I have .NET 4.5 (dotnet45) installed (and just updated Winetricks from 20190912 to 20200412).

Certes added a comment to T250937: Noinclude with the VisualEditor.

VE appears to simplify piped links in a way incompatible with transclusion, specifically to replace [[Foo bar|Foo<noinclude> bar</noinclude>]] by [[Foo bar]], This is helpful and harmless on the page being edited, but makes a transcluding page behave as if noinclude had not been used.
