UIAM the WMF would want to keep the original file(s) as well, so that when the HEIF patents expire it could be made available, but there is currently no support for that type of file stashing in the software (see T120454).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T211371: uc/lcfirst: magic word should work with link titles.

The current behavior of these functions is very straightforward: to change the case of the first character in the string passed to them (therefore, previewing {{ucfirst:[[test]]} renders as "test", not as "Test", because the first character is the first [, not the t). Changing the behavior of these functions to be link-aware would require changing at what point in the parse process they are applied, and would probably be extremely difficult to do without introducing a wide array of bugs and unintended behaviors, in addition to potentially breaking lots of current usage that relies on the current behavior. The best solution for this is to change your use case so the functions are being applied directly to the text you want to modify - i.e. [[Linked page|{{ucfirst:link title}}]].

Back to the originally opening question.

  • With the most recent change, the arrow is not a blue link any longer, nor is the TOC headline in blue as it has been for a few weeks. Now it is hard for newbies and not frequently visiting users to learn that this grey thing is a clickable link.
  • The only clue they get now is the arrow.
  • The arrow (or similar simply accessible sign) is necessary now to give at least a hint to this type of link markup differing from any other clickable link.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T210475: User should not be allowed to edit user talk page if checkbox is enabled (partial blocks).

The OP specifically calls for a user to be blocked from their UTP if the UTP block box is not checked, but they are partial-blocked from the User_talk namespace. However, a cursory reading of @dbarratt's patchset suggests the box will take precedence in this case. Whic is the actual preferred behavior? It seems counterintuitive to me that a User_talk namespace partial block should prevent a user from editing their own UTP even when the UTP box isn't checked; having the box override all other behavior also matches its current functionality IRT sitewide blocks. What is the actual preferred behavior here?

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T208246: Change password length requirement and ensure enforcement for privileged users (from 8 to 10).

A minimum password length of 8 characters does not prevent any strong passwords from being used

The current policy of prohibiting passwords that are only lowercase letters prohibits the strongest passwords (eg correct horse battery staple) from being used. Adding extra requirements of this sort basically means that people will start recording their passwords in non-secure locations.

The strength of those passwords depends on a lot of assumptions, and I will always dispute the idea that they could be stronger than passwords generated by a password manager. In addition, using them does not help with the problem of remembering passwords when you're using a different password for every account as you're supposed to, across potentially dozens or even hundreds of different accounts. Nothing about this complaint depends on a minimum password length of less than 8 characters; if used correctly, xkcd-style passwords will always be far longer than 8 characters, so such a length requirement would not affect them regardless. And anyone who is apt to write their passwords down or otherwise store them in an insecure fashion is probably already doing so, regardless of any password requirements in place on any particular service. Again, the correct response to all of this is to encourage the use of password managers, not to simply throw our hands up and say "we can't do anything so we won't do anything".

The pipes are being interpreted as the separator between the HTML attributes for the cell (ID, classes, styles, etc.) and the cell's contents; this is working as expected, and changing the behavior would break a substantial amount of existing uses. The correct method to achieve what you want to do is &#124; (to simplify use, you can put this in a template; Wikipedia uses Template:Pipe for this purpose). <nowiki>|</nowiki> does work as well, but isn't as template-/module-friendly, since all <nowiki> content in template/module input gets replaced with parse tokens during parsing.

It appears that in your examples, the link is a redirect to a disambiguation page, rather than a direct link to a disambiguation page (in the second example, both links are redirects to the same disambiguation page; this doesn't appear to happen when both links are redirects to different disambiguation pages). The fact that the mw-disambig class is added to redirect links in any circumstance is surprising to me, but the fact that it happens inconsistently is confusing.

\p{L} matches a character with the Unicode "letter" category; \P{L} matches a character not in that category. So the regex File:\P{L}*\.[^.]+ matches, approximately, any filenames containing only non-letter characters followed by a period and an extension. If I had to guess, numbers don't have the "letter" Unicode category, and so are matched by \P{L} (the same as the whitespace, dashes, parentheses, and periods), though I can't say why the Flickr import wouldn't trigger that regex (maybe the Flickr import tool bypasses the title blacklist?).

This would be a useful tool for sanity-checking listed IPA pronunciations (e.g. if the examples @Ragesoss tried out above, messed up because of incorrect transcription into IPA, having a machine reading would let that issue be identified and corrected). However, this could also serve to motivate more people to make and upload actual pronunciation recordings, if they are dissatisfied with the machine pronunciations for some reason (again, Ragesoss's above examples are relevant).

@Wilkins The extension archival process has evolved somewhat since this task was first filed; one of the changes that has happened is a requirement to notify all maintainers listed on the extension's MediaWiki.org page. No one has taken the time to go through the older tasks and update them to the current process, though (I've been planning to do it, but just have't gotten around to it yet). In this case, the archival still hasn't been finished, and what's been done so far should be reversible. Your best bet would be to ask each person who did each action to submit a revision/pull request/etc. to reverse it. @hashar archived the integration/config tests in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/445378, I archived the MediaWiki.org documentation in https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:Semantic_Genealogy&diff=2826129&oldid=2539979, and @Umherirrender archived it from mediawiki/extensions in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/451046 and from translatewiki in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/451047.

You are probably right, as this is a feature often suggested on the extension talk page over the last years. However, consider the following scenario:
[...]

I'm with you on prefering the Contra variant; as I have used Variables over the years, I have found more and more that relying on them to pass state between templates is a recipe for sometimes-hard-to-diagnose bugs. If you take a step back and think about it in a more abstract manner, this is basically a situation of globals, and thus in addition to all the weirdness deriving from the fact that it's wikitext, it also carries all the long-documented problems associated with usage of globals in programming. Therefore increasingly I prefer explicitly passing data to/between templates as template parameters.

I thought renaming accounts normally also renamed all the pages in the account's userspace, but I could see how that might fail or just not happen in some cases. For account renames, I feel like MediaWiki should be reserving the old username to prevent someone coming in and registering it, even if MW itself doesn't support account renames per se, but I think this is a separate issue probably.

That's behind a configuration option that anyone still using IE6 is unlikely to have any idea even exists, much less what it does or be willing to toggle it; it's worth noting that Qualys SSL Labs does not regard IE6 as supporting TLS 1.0 for the purposes of their SSL/HTTPS user agent capabilities and tests.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T171563: Only allow MediaWiki, Gadget, and User namespace pages to be treated as JS or CSS (no project namespace, etc.).

Were the CSS restrictions part of that too? With the recent rollout of TemplateStyles, it's now valid to have CSS pages in the Template (and possibly Module?) namespace, so this would have to also be allowed. (I'd assume that this is known, of course, but figure it's also better to explicitly document it in this ticket.)

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T205952: Archive the Preloader extension.

That's the conclusion I came to when I noticed the extension page has a talk page, and saw the last two sections on it (one, two). I'm fine with your plan of action here, @Mainframe98.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T205876: Specific user subpage on dewiki shows a PHP fatal error timeout.

The page history shows that the page is being bot-generated; the best solution here would probably just be to have the bot author rewrite the bot to split the page into more moderately-sized subpages.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T152821: Linter: check for <a> tags (checkwiki #4).

In addition, there isn't a 1:1 feature parity between wikitext and the underlying HTML tag it implements; list markup is probably the most obvious example of this - there is no way to specify HTML attributes or CSS in list wikimarkup (other than using wrapper elements like <span>, which still doesn't let you do stuff like set a custom start number for ordered lists). Because of this, I agree that the Linter category should just track nonwhitelisted HTML elements.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T203519: Discuss future of the Arrays extension.

Since I was just checking this for the pre 2.0 documentation page on MediaWiki.org, it's probably worth noting here that literally none of the wikis WikiApiary lists as using Arrays, are listed as using a version older than 2.0, though I don't know offhand if this actually has any significance for removing the compatibility mode and its config variable.

This isn't a blocker, but if it's easy enough to do, the template should allow more than one task to be added in this way (whether via multiple parameters, or by allowing multiple values to be passed to the one). There has been at least one archival addressed in more than one ticket, though a quick search through my MW.org contribs fails to turn it up.

If you shove junk into the parser, you should not be surprised if it spits junk back out. Regardless of any philosophy the parser may or may not aspire to about serving sane output for any random input string, there will always be inputs that the parser just completely fails at. In these cases, it is not enough to file a bug report (especially since the report may be closed as declined or even invalid); the correct response is to change the input so the parser behaves better. Or, if you prefer, if you do something and it hurts, don't do it.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T204370: Behavior switch/magic word uniformity.

If {{#var:...}} is an actual suggestion for a parser function name (i.e. a parser function named the exact string #var, instead of #var just being a stand-in for some to-be-determined string), keep in mind tht this name is already used by Extension:Variables. Some of the other suggested names might similarly conflict with other extensions, though I don't know of any off-hand.

I don't think the to-do list is meant to be a set of hard requirements for archival; if a particular archival should skip or modify some steps (or add extra ones, etc.), the to-do list should be modified to suit.
