This would be very much appreciated. In particular, the performance of the 2017 Wikitext Editor as compared to other wikitext editors. :-)

@MelodyKramer Hey! I'll be working on this blog post. I'm doing a first draft of a post based on the template you suggested. I'll share with you once I've got that done, and we can gut it, rewrite it, destroy it, or whatever else we want to do to get it into a publishable state. :-)
@Linedwell I'm glad it worked out. :-)
This appears to be completely solved now.

@Schnark I do not understand what the problem is, or what solution you'd prefer. Can you provide a screenshot of the problem, and more details? Thank you!
Needs fixing at some point, but does not appear to be actively breaking anything right now.
I am assuming that this saves correctly and is primarily a visual glitch that exists only during editing, so prioritising accordingly.
This is definitely worth fixing, but does not seem to be pressing.
@Esanders Does the above patch fix this issue?
@Infovarius Categories are not added using the "Insert" menu. They're added using the menu near the top right of the editor, which is highlighted in the screenshot below.
@Linedwell We don't have much time to help debug issues with third-party users of our code, I'm afraid. Try upgrading everything to the latest version, and hopefully that will fix things. :-)
This may be an issue in HotCat. I'm not sure.
Although this looks weird when you're previewing or still in VisualEditor, it does save correctly.
Closing per the above.
I can't reproduce either, so I assume this was fixed at some point. If someone can still reproduce, feel free to reopen with your reproduction steps.
There may be some minor tweaks to make here that would be beneficial, such as moving "Comment" down to discourage its use by novice editors as James suggests, or moving "Hieroglyphics" down since it's very infrequently used. A major overhaul does not seem worth the effort.
I will assume that this is a serious issue which may be affecting wikis other than Meta-Wiki until proven otherwise.

Bumping up in priority.
I can't reproduce this. It seems to work just fine on articles other than the one that was a total mess of images. Given that two of us can't reproduce, closing as declined. @Whatamidoing-WMF if this is still an issue for you, please feel free to reopen with a few more details. :-)
@Whatamidoing-WMF Which article was this on? I'm getting inconsistent behaviour when trying to move images, but I was trying it in an article that had a ton of images all over the place and therefore had a very idiosyncratic layout.
Note: this bug is limited to the visual diff provided from the history page, and are not reproducible with the visual diffs shown in VisualEditor.

I can't reproduce this. Transient issue?
We've decided what we're doing, so closing as resolved. Follow-up task for implementation is T170665: Inform users visual diffs are in beta.

@Pginer-WMF Thanks for the mockups! I think the first mockup is the most suitable. I prefer the copy from the second, since I think "Report incorrect display" focusses the feedback more. We should keep the interaction the same as the first mockup though (link, open feedback page).

Does anyone in the team have a device that has Edge?
Is this a recurrence of T167936: Almost all links in a navbox marked as red on a specific page? Does @matmarex have thoughts?

This seems to behave correctly now... I assume it was @matmaxrex that fixed it. :-)
This was fixed by @matmarex in... some other task that I don't know the number of off the top of my head.
I don't know whether this correct or not, honestly.
Primarily a Parsoid problem.
HTML comments in articles are very rare in articles nowadays. Most of the use cases that exist for HTML comments are now served by edit notices, and the only use case that I know of that's left is annotating specific bits of the article, such as telling people not to change Obama's name.
I can't reproduce this in Firefox 53 or 54 on my Mac. Is this still happening for @Whatamidoing-WMF?
