DMacks added a comment to T286705: Usernames in "file history" get hyphenated.

Browser-diving, Chrome (Mac) does the same thing, even without being logged in (therefore it's not user .js bug). Safari (Mac) instead does break at the whitespace (*despite* the nowrap tag). That makes it seem like HTML subject to the "tidy-whitespace-bug" lint-error, where indeed edge whitespace within a nowrap span is subject to varying behaviors. I'm uncertain why out-of-hand rejection to addressing something that looks confusing into something that is not as confusing and that affects multiple current-release popular browsers, even if "it's a browser effect". What's the drawback?

Account-name should either be made nowrap

Which actual underlying problem would this solve? Please provide a specific use case.

DMacks added a comment to T286705: Usernames in "file history" get hyphenated.

Here's the HTML:

<td><a href="/wiki/User:Smiley.toerist" class="mw-userlink" title=""><bdi>Smiley.toerist</bdi></a><span style="white-space: nowrap;"> <span class="mw-usertoollinks">(<a href="/wiki/User_talk:Smiley.toerist" class="mw-usertoollinks-talk" title="">talk</a> | <a href="/wiki/Special:Contributions/Smiley.toerist" class="mw-usertoollinks-contribs" title="">contribs</a> | <a href="/wiki/Special:Block/Smiley.toerist" class="mw-usertoollinks-block" title="Special:Block/Smiley.toerist">block</a>)</span></span></td>

There is no nowrap around the account-name. There is a whitespace between the account-name and the links-set, but it is part of the nowrap , and there is a whitespacea space between the account-name and the links-set, but it's part of the nowrap along with the links.

DMacks added a comment to T22647: Allow way to choose thumbnail frame for video on its File: description page.

At [[commons:Commons:Deletion requests/File:Why Can't You Download Videos on YouTube How a 20-Year-Old Law Stops youtube-dl Users AND Farmers.webm‎]], we have a case where the auto-selected image is a nonfree frame. It's likely de minimis within the video, but it's not appropriate as the default thumb. And if we blur/blank it out for stricter license compliance, then we have blurred or blank image as the default thumb.

DMacks added a comment to T269929: Add a Commons user search preference to exclude certain file types / mime types.

When looking at a category, we already have a gadget for displaying only a certain filetype. When searching in other ways, we have selectors for namespace. I wonder if we could have a search-selector for filetype?

Restricted Application added a project to T23613: Add block and protection expiries to the watchlist: Growth-Team.

My use-case is when a long-term protection such as a BLP-related semi or extended-confirmed needs a short-term upgrade due to an unrelated issue (few days' fullprot due to a heated content dispute). When that latter protection expires, it silently becomes completely unprotected. Having the alert would let me know to re-set the previous semi/EC.

I just noticed this for https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:4-Hydroxy-TEMPO that has no subcats but is listed as having "3C" at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Aminoxyls and other parent cats of it. That's another "starting with a number" cat, part of the pattern Ghouston mentioned.

DMacks added a comment to T226168: Chemistry beaker icon should have open top.

As far as terminology, "conical flask" is sometimes used as a synonym for "Erlenmeyer flask". But a flask (of which these are other shapes also) and a beaker are totally different profiles.

DMacks added a comment to T146628: Add IP range support to [[Special:Log]].

I'd also like to recurse "up" from a given IP or range (larger enclosing ranges of the given one rather than subranges). So if I look at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/block&page=User%3A2601%3A586%3A400%3A833A%3AFD78%3A71BE%3A47B5%3A5110 (specifically [[:en:User:2601:586:400:833A:FD78:71BE:47B5:5110]], I would also see that [[:en:User:2601:586:400:833a::/64]] is rangeblocked. And this would still be visible once the blocks have expired, unlike [[Special:BlockList]] that only displays active ones.

DMacks added a comment to T138159: Not allowing linebreaks in Special:Contributions options box causes side-scrolling.

This seems to be mostly resolved. Looking at 1.33.0-wmf.18 (rMW3456bc65792b), narrowing the window allows breaking between each option in a set but checkbox+option-text remains together. If I narrow the window so much that even one full option does not fit on a line, it side-scrolls because no breaking is allowed within the text of any one option. I'm not sure if that is good/bad, but given how extremely narrow one has to get to observe it, and that the alternative (allowing breaking within an option) is a worse problem, I would call this RESOLVED.

DMacks added a comment to T210822: Reconsider section heading marker ("→") in edit summaries.

I was just about to post to [[:en:VPT]] wondering about this. At least on en.wp, the § symbol is already used in several places to represent a section (as delimited by a header) of an article. We already do that in the semi-niche https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Section_link but also the widely used https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Main for example. ~~~~

DMacks added a comment to T140606: Check user signature for linter errors.

Some broken signatures are now triggering [[Special:LintErrors]], including "high priority" ones. If it's a prolific talk-page user, that means lots of talkpages and other discussion namespaces get flagged. See for example [[:en:User talk:Milonica#Signature HTML bug]]. I don't know how much of a Big Deal lint errors are, but given they're called "high priority errors", it seems important.
