Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T245134: Arrays extension cannot parse certain numbers.

This works as expected on a wiki with Arrays 2.1.0; unfortunately I don't have any wikis to hand with Arrays 2.2.0 to test on.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T176349: [Task] Decide if the Teahouse extension can be archived.

I'll note that none of the related pages on MW.org that I checked (the main extension page, as well as the /Development and /DE subpages) have any significant edits from more recent than 2015 or so, the only related talk page I saw only has a single topic from two years ago, and WikiApiary doesn't list any wiki as having it installed. Other extensions have been archived for less; my vote is to go ahead with archival.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T243093: Archive the TagContent extension.

The extension was marked archived by its author/maintainer (@jeblad), so I'd call that good enough reason to go through with the whole archival checklist here. Even ignoring that, though, the last version was released in 2010, and there's a good chance it doesn't work with any supported version of MediaWiki (though if someone wants to test, feel free).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T237267: Decide the fate of <source>.

So its clear that the current "discouragement" isn't very effective. If it is officially deprecated with plans to remove it, there is then a valid rational for a bot task to replace uses (otherwise it would be a cosmetic edit):
Proposal:

  • Add a tracking category when <source> is used
  • Officially deprecate using <source> as part of the 1.35 cycle, with warnings that it may be removed in 1.36
  • Carry out replacements on the wmf wikis
  • Remove support in 1.36

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T11168: Allow arrays in ParserFunctions.

Variables are available via Extension:Variables, and arrays are available via Extension:Arrays, though neither of these is going to be enabled on any WMF wiki. These days, the solution would generally be using Lua via Extension:Scribunto if you're working on a WMF wiki; Scribunto offers most of the functionality of Ext:Arrays/Ext:Variables, except for the ability to move data around the page freely (including into/out of template calls), but that is incompatible with the direction the parser is headed in anyways.

The non-image redlink [[Does not exist|some text]] also renders as "some text" instead of "Does not exist". So at least in that sense, this behavior is consistent. Though on the other hand, nothing special happens for redlinked categories (they get added to the page exactly the same as bluelinked categories), so there could be an argument for consistency in that direction too I guess.

@Masumrezarock100 As I said in T201495#5391945, the motivation for this feature request was to benefit non-WMF wikis. If anyone else is interested in pursuing consensus to enable this on a WMF wiki, I wish them the best of luck, but it was never my intention to do so myself. I imagine that by default, the right would be assigned to the same user groups as the current move right is, so by default the addition of this right shouldn't produce any functional change on WMF wikis.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T232714: Wrong subst-if output.

This is documented (not super-clearly) at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Substitution#Predefined_templates:

In the case of substitution of a predefined template, if the expression for one of its parameters contains {{{p|3}}} with undefined p, this code reduces to 3. However, on the page itself, {{{p|3}}} is treated as such, not as 3.
Examples:

  • {{#expr:2*{{{p}}}}} gives Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "{".
  • {{#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives 6
  • {{subst:#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "{".
  • substituting a template containing {{<includeonly>subst:</includeonly>#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives 6 if p is not assigned a value, and twice the number p if it is assigned a value.
  • the same result can be obtained from a template containing {{{{{subst}}}#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}}, if the substitution call has a parameter of subst=subst:.

Compare:

  • {{uc:2*{{{p}}}}} gives 2*{{{P}}}
  • {{uc:2*{{{p|q}}}}} gives 2*Q
  • {{subst:uc:2*{{{p|q}}}}} gives the wikitext 2*{{{P|Q}}} rendered as 2*Q

and also (from above):

  • {{subst:UC:{{subst:tc}}}} gives IN, just like {{UC:{{tc}}}} does; UC is applied to the output "in" of Tc.
  • {{subst:UC:{{tc}}}} gives the wikitext {{TC}} rendered as Template:TC.

In the substitution of UC, the inclusion tag {{tc}} is treated as string just like {{{p|q}}}.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T230805: Confirmation of flag assignment by other bureaucrats.

If the first use-case (requiring a second bureaucrat's confirmation to promote admins) is done, it should be opt-in only, and should not have any effect if a wiki only has a single bureaucrat for (hopefully) obvious reasons.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T175709: Which tags in MediaWiki should be styled as monospace?.

It seemed to me on rereading the commentary in this task that there was a lot of confusion between MediaWiki's support of the HTML tt tag, and its implementation of the tt wiki markup element, and my comment was addressing that. My impression, of course, could be entirely mistaken, but that's at least where it was coming from, just to be clear.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T175709: Which tags in MediaWiki should be styled as monospace?.

Ignoring the issue of styling, kbd has specific semantic meaning (keyboard input) that tt does not, so it's not accurate and is in fact potentially harmful to declare that kbd is an alternative to tt - this is only true in certain cases. The same applies to samp and var. (It also actually applies to code, though I don't know in practice how many people care enough to only present source code using code, and use span for other things.)
