Daylen added a comment to T205149: The first letter is cut off when using the 2017 wikitext editor with the timeless skin.

@matmarex Now the text isn't going off the screen, but the cursor isn't aligned. Screen capture from Microsoft Edge. The problem is typically caused by turning syntax highlighting from off to on in the middle of an edit.

Daylen added a comment to T205682: Would it be possible for the cite templates in VE to use the date format specified in the article for date parameters?.

My understanding is that {{use dmy dates}} it's a instruction for how to render the dates, not how they are inputted.

@Izno I'm using Vivaldi (which is built on Chromium). I've also tried it on Microsoft Edge and get the same issue. It doesn't seem to be a browser-specific problem.

The author has only granted permission for it to be used by Wikimedians/the Wikimedia Foundation, so please don't share the link publicly.

Sounds like a pretty surefire way to ensure it's not used by Wikimedians at all.

Sorry, I don't choose the license terms. I'm just following what they stated. The publisher doesn't allow the study to be shared freely. The PDF is only meant to assess security issues, not to cite in articles. In case you would like to take a look at the study, I have emailed you a copy. Cheers, Daylen

I can access it fine personally as I happen to be a member of one of the institutions allowed to use the link in the description. My point is that development decisions generally get made in public, and not all Wikimedians have such access.

Daylen added a comment to T200052: Mandate that account passwords must be a minimum of eight characters on Wikimedia projects.

This is an old topic. If you search this Phabricator installation for "password length", you'll find a bunch of related commits and tasks. There are also wiki pages such as https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Requests_for_comment/Passwords and mailing list posts about this.
I think we should be moving in the direction of making it even easier to create wiki accounts, perhaps not even requiring a password to be set at all. We could provide a text input box on the edit screen that allows someone to pick a user name or have one auto-assigned instead of using an IP address. We could support only entering a cell phone number or an e-mail address to make an edit. There are pitfalls to these approaches, naturally, but implementing some of them would likely be an improvement. We want people to edit and contribute to the sites. To this end, we continue to support logged-out editing to promote the culture of fast ("wiki") and easy contributing. In my opinion, encouraging editing and trying to reduce barrier to entry should be our focus, not security theater.
Amazon and Wikipedia aren't really reasonably comparable other than both being Web sites. Nobody uses a credit card to order items to their house off of Wikipedia. :-)

Daylen added a comment to T108714: Update Windows 8.1 app to UWP (Windows 10)/Create Windows 10 app.

@ksmith mentioned that someone at Microsoft reached out to the Wikimedia Foundation regarding this. I assume the finished project would look something like the image below (I just made using Visual Studio in two minutes, many functions aren't working). If Microsoft is willing to develop the app, I would recommend just having someone at Wikimedia work with them to push the code out through official channels.
