Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T217944: Support backticks (`) for code samples (as in Markdown).

Looking through some of those search results, everything (that wasn't a Template:Tree chart parameter) looked like a misuse of the backtick where a standard apostrophe or double quote (or in a few cases, stuff like an ayin) should be used instead. That said, the extant corpus consisting mostly of misuses (assuming my extremely limited sample size is actually representative of the larger corpus, especially since I only looked on a single wiki) doesn't magically make it disappear or correct editor behavior. If the implementation was limited to matching pairs of backticks on the same line, that would limit breakage, but there would still be some; if this was to be seriously considered for implementation now, it seems the direction to go would be a linter report or some equivalent.

@Izno Do you have any examples offhand? I tried looking earlier, and again just now, and couldn't find anything (other than how some people insist on using backticks for opening quotes). The only thing I can think of, and can find, is the grave accent, which the backtick is descended from but semantically distinct and encoded separately from; I don't think grave accents ever appear except as diacritics on letters, but could be wrong.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T220447: Split out or remove Special:Contributions/newbies functionality.

It's possible to add tags to edits from "new" accounts (with whatever definition you want for "new") using Extension:AbuseFilter. For example, this filter would match all edits made by accounts with fewer than 10 edits and less than 4 days old (i.e. the current autoconfirmed cutoffs for en.WP), allowing a tag to be added to them:

user_age > 0 & 
( (int(user_editcount) < 10) | (user_age < 259200) ) &
!(action contains "createaccount")

...though note that this comes with no endorsement of being a good idea.

Dinoguy1000 updated subscribers of T271418: Archive the Tabber extension.

Tabber hasn't seen any commits or other maintainer activity on GitLab since 2019, and Gamepedia's version/fork is probably no longer in use on Gamepedia since some time after GP's acquisition by Fandom (around whenever the unified skin was rolled out across both farms). This strongly suggests that the public version(s) of Tabber is now unmaintained (Fandom's version of Tabber, which is presumably still being maintained, is no longer publicly available AFAIK). @Alexia noted over a year ago that they no longer maintain Tabber (or several other extensions), meaning that there are currently no active maintainers listed for it, either.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T298416: Support for rendering to HTML of pages as stored in Wikipedia dumps.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "file data", but if you're talking about the actual uploaded files being embedded in rendered pages, note that these are not included in the XML dumps (otherwise the dump files would be much, much larger than they are now). Currently dumps of media files are not publicly available like dumps of page contents are (T298394), though the first step towards that has been taken with the resolution of T262668. Note however, that even when that gets resolved, there still won't be dumps corresponding to the state of uploaded files for WMF projects for old page content dumps, so in practice it will never be possible to accurately reconstruct old articles purely from dump files, with certainty for that accuracy (ignoring of course differences in parser behavior between when the dump was made and today).

@Dinoguy1000 I don't think you should do that- "SHOW REPLICA STATUS"; is not a valid mariadb command, "SHOW SLAVE STATUS" is the working command that has to be sent- we don't have a choice on that. I think you should file an upstream bug instead to mariadb to ask to rename the command, but otherwise those kind of edits would be confusing (they are not names we can chose to change- yet, unlike other identifiers).

It seems from the last few comments that the general attitude here has turned towards a pure-CSS/JS solution if this feature is kept in any way, but if it's actually still up in the air, I just wanted to point out that the data-* solution should probably use an mw- prefix (i.e. data-mw-tocnumber or what-have-you), to reduce the chances of conflicts with data-* attributes being used on-wiki (this also mirrors the same being done with MediaWiki-side class names these days AFAIK).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T275261: title-invalid-characters error should be able to safely suggest a title.

Will this be backported to 1.31 and 1.35? (It's not a huge deal for us if not; it's a simple enough change that we could just apply the patch locally, but [obviously] I would prefer to avoid doing that.)

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T272466: Add a configuration variable for namespaces to suggest pages from.

That should work for our needs. Will this patch be backported to the 1.31-compatible branch of the extension as well, or will we have to manually apply it ourselves? (Or am I misunderstanding how this whole thing works, either for extensions in general or this extension in particular?)

Another benefit to this would be that editors who use email notifications can control whether they are notified for these edits, simply by setting their "email me for bot edits" preference accordingly (instead of whatever system might be thought up to resolve T177291).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T177291: ReplaceText should have an option to not send out emails.

I really don't like the idea that someone making an edit can force others to not receive notifications for them; IMO the better way to handle this would be via T200334: [ReplaceText] Unchecking the "Announce these edits" textbox should mark edits as bot.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T159062: Merge UnusedRedirects extension functionality into MediaWiki core.

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).
