Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T267161: Improvements to wide tables in new Vector.

The issue here is that unless you have a trackpad or a mouse with sideways scrolling abilities, you would only be able to scroll the table sideways from the bottom of the table (where the scrollbar is).

There are already too many editors out there who believe redirects are "bad"; adding this functionality to core would only validate that view by providing them with a maintenance report which existence implicitly claims that certain redirects are categorically bad (similar maintenance reports indicate problems that need to be fixed, providing an obvious parallel argument).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T71445: Implement a sane code-review process for MediaWiki JS/CSS pages on Wikimedia sites.

I'm not keen on the amount of work left in the hands of the merging interface admin in your proposal, @DannyS712. In particular, for an extension it should be possible to mark the forked pages as forks and indicate what page they're forked from, and have some mechanism to mark a particular revision as approved, at which point the special page could pull most of the required info automatically from the fork when an iadmin merges it back in. If it's a concern, the special page could allow certain fields to be modified pre-merge (e.g. tweaking the summary), but in general I feel much more comfortable not requiring the iadmin to manually copy so much (less chance for errors to creep in, etc).

Users who are "not idiots" could probably find a better workflow to manage their messages than read/unread.

They could. But they don’t necessarily want. Forcing workflows on users is not a particularly user-friendly software design. I am most effective if I keep the new message indicator until I actually take the actions requested there. If a software doesn’t let me do it, then either I don’t use it, or I fork it and get rid of the whole talk message notification feature. I won’t find a “better” workflow, because this is the best one for me, no matter what you think.

Dinoguy1000 reopened T206691: Rename html5shiv to html5shim as "Open".

In light of T254646, I believe this should be revisited. The problem with "shiv" is that it immediately evokes imagery of violence. At least in the US, it might also be considered a microaggression against people of color, given the gross racial imbalance in US prisons compared with the general population. Even if this isn't true, WMF projects purport to be inclusive of everyone, which includes current and former prisoners, for whom "shiv" is likely to be an unpleasant reminder of their experiences in the system.

Did you accidentally leave out or add in a hex, or swap the values? 0x3DC594 (the offset you stated; note there are six hexadecimal digits) is way less than 0x2DB1B30 (the file size you stated; note it has 7 hexadecimal digits). Even if it's meant to be an offset from the TIFF directory (located at 0x2D1A3A per the tiffinfo output from your previous comment), that only gets up to an absolute offset of around 0x6ADFCE.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T251116: Have a shorter name for <syntaxhighlight>.

I can't speak for anyone else, but its (lack of) resemblance to <syntaxhighlight> was not one of the reasons I had in mind when I proposed the deprecation of <source>, and similarly I don't think there's any reason to require a new shorthand element to have a resemblance to <syntaxhighlight>. To that end, maybe a tag name like <codehighlight> or <coloredcode>? I'd also suggest <sh>, but I have no idea how safe it'd be adding a two-character tag when it's not inconceivable that a tag of the same name could be added to HTML at some point.

this task was related to the fate of source, and has been resolved

Just like when @revi commented on it. I can open a new task, of course, but why me, and not revi?

Yes. Sorry if it seems like I talked around that instead of just saying it outright.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T250856: Add ability to receive nominornewtalk edits via email.

Honestly, the reliance on wl_notificationtimestamp to determine whether to email users is the root of a lot of problems; IMO the easiest fix would be the addition of a field that indicates whether the user has been emailed about the page yet.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T250772: Special:Import should skip revisions with identical content to the current revision.

The specific circumstance is where the imported revision is newer than the current local revision of the page, and would thus replace it and trigger jobs. In this case, if the revision text is identical, there is no point in importing the revision. This can happen if you imported a template or module at some point in the past, and then on the source wiki an edit was made and undone, or the page's protection was changed, or a similar action was performed that generates an empty revision/diff (which will then have a different, later timestamp and (often) a different editor from the older imported revision), and then you reimport the current revision of the page. If the revision to be imported is older than the current local revision, it doesn't really matter if it gets imported or not, and if the export contains the full page history instead of only the current revision, it should be imported regardless (and/or an option to skip importing these revisions should be provided).
