@Niharika -- is this something that you considered when you worked on edit summary pings?
Dec 13 2018
Hi @Lionel_Scheepmans -- I have some good news and bad news about your request.
Dec 11 2018
Yeah, this looks good. A progress bar will be helpful, much better than the current throbber.

@Adithyak1997, it's possible that there's a misunderstanding about what this template does. What are you hoping to do with this template?
We're not going to enable this magic word on any other wikis right now. People should update the short descriptions on Wikidata.

Hi @CKoerner_WMF - yes, I scheduled a meeting for Friday Aug 31st.

@Niharika, can you talk to Sam about this? Maybe CommTech can do an investigation.

I give my blessing to remove the toolbar.

I posted a message on the Template:Short description talk page:
I can do the communication here. The fact that the template is actually breaking specific pages will get people's attention. Do we know exactly what the template is doing wrong?

@RHo This looks good to me. Thank you for working on this!

Hi @Yair_rand: Thanks for raising the alam. You're right, we don't want any of those outcomes, and there's no superprotect coming, on this or any other product release.

Thanks, Jon. So this is the most important follow-up:
I'm testing it out on enwiki:

Yeah, I guess it's done. :)
I approve this request.
Okay, I believe this is done. The two Flow pages on Commons have been deleted, and I replaced them with wikitext exports:

I talked to Roan and Kaldari about this ticket. This won't have any visible impact, but the code's already written and there's no reason to block it. We'll do code review and then deploy it.

Hi everyone, I posted a response to the RfC on Commons village pump:

Hi everyone: Sorry this has taken a little while for us to respond; it's been a busy time at the Foundation over the last month.

@daniel & @Tgr -- sorry, I misspoke in my last comment. I talked to a couple more people and I understand it better now. :) We should do the second option and create a new mode of the API. I believe that means we won't have to notify Wikibase, so that should save some time.
As @daniel said, the purpose of this ticket is to change the way that this works. I think we should do the first option in @Tgr's message above -- all clients should honor the override. We've made a commitment to people on English Wikipedia that this will be done.

@Alsee: This is not the way to handle this situation. We can talk about it on-wiki.

@Tgr The description in the magic word should be used everywhere. The API should pull from the magic word and not the Wikidata description.

@Samwilson Yes, indented for sure. Background on hover sounds nice, let's try it and see how it feels.

@Addshore, you're suggesting I think six different tickets and projects
spinning out of this request. As a solution to the current problem, I don't
think that's better, it's just more complicated and there's more of it.
