Demian added a comment to T263880: Horizontal overflow when zoomed in and on narrow screens.

@kst This is unlikely to be fixed as the minimum width was added intentionally. Add the following CSS to your global.css to undo it:

Demian added a comment to T262507: skins.vector.styles.legacy sets hr{height:0}, hiding horizontal rules.

That leads me to ResourceLoaderSkinModule recent modifications:
35d03b1168cbe032a2c690e18d9b93f9b870f24a (deployed this week) and 6ab14857b972eea9a0fb94f8d50e5d098b00be51 (not deployed).
So the regression is probably in the load order of those various resources.

@hashar That's really thorough research. Calling array_unshift (prepend in English) one-by-one on the features list reverses the order of those as "normalize" is prepended, then "elementes", etc.
What it should do is to accumulate the ResourceLoaderFilePaths in a new array then array_unshift that new array to $styles[$mediaType].

Demian added a comment to T247010: Clarify future of discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org: Make the website read-only.

The issue is [...] to just find one place where a question would be answered.

I agree, with a stress on "one". Hence adding more places itself does not solve the problem, but a plan to consolidate places would.

The more choices you offer, the more confused I'm going to be which choice to take. I might post in all places, which will fragment conversations and duplicate efforts of people replying.

But you aren't the target audience ;-) Volunteers - like myself - have a more direct view of what can be achieved on each forum.

  • The font is intentionally huge, as people tend not to read banners. (This is based on my personal experience in my volunteer time that the banner that I put on https://bugzilla.gnome.org is not read by everyone and that people continue to create tickets over there. The next level of annoyance would be a popup overlay.)

I see. Yes, the personal experience part about ineffectiveness came through ;-) Anyway I would suggest a bit reducing the size and adding more content.

  • Apart from Mattermost we also have Zulip for outreach programs, we have the #wmhack group on Telegram which is used by quite some folks for general questions not Hackathon related, and probably many other places, so I intentionally went for established places which have a larger number of users now.

All these are quite hard to find. I recall spending hours looking for places where I might get answers to my questions. In the end my questions remained unanswered and I haven't found these places either.
From my personal experience: it would help to add all these 3 you've listed (I'm not against adding the rest 😄). People will choose the one that's closest to their area of interest and/or the most familiar/accessible of these tools.
I think a proactive approach would be beneficial here: the only way to transition from outdated, but very well established solutions toward modern, more effective and convenient ones is to promote those, thus being less established is extra reason to advertise them, otherwise the fate of discourse might repeat itself.

  • The recently launched Mattermost chat can serve as an easily accessible alternative (unlike IRC) or even continuation of the discourse instance, therefore I hope you could add that to the notification also:

Demian added a project to T261171: Echo notification clickable link area overlapping Homepage link: Notifications.

This is caused by the notification (Echo) icons' hidden text (only used by screen readers). The shape that you see is where that short text ("Alerts (0)", "Notices (0)") would be.
The issue is caused by an unfortunate DOM design in the Echo extension, Vector has nothing to do with it.

Demian added a comment to T260993: Edit box directionality cannot be changed on RTL projects.

I also thought this could depend on the order of the selectors, that is, changing the top code below to the bottom code below. However, that also doesn't make the issue go away, because the browser will evaluate the entire rule together, and uses the most qualified selector all the time (in this case, the sitedir-XXX textarea supercedes the textarea[dir='XXX'] if they are both part of the same rule, no matter the order).

The logo as a link is redundant with the "Main Page" sidebar link. Navigates to the main page when clicked is ok, but IMO it should not be part of the TAB sequence at all. Pressing TAB twice will bring you to: -> sidebar button -> "Main Page". That's sufficient.

In my understanding and deepest sorrow, typography questions in the Readers-Web-Team are lower than lowest priority. Comments suggest this will be the case while the Desktop Improvements project is running.
I'm interested in discussions and actual development in this area (demonstrated by my numerous Proof-Of-Concept patches), but I think "stalled" status and lowest prio expresses best the reality of this ticket.
If that's not the case, I'd be more than happy to see someone change it.

I would like us to continue analyzing this task and perhaps expand it to include all cases for smaller screens. @Demian, in the future, please don't remove items from our sprint board.
