DoRD added a comment to T177705: REGRESSION - Option to suppress user accounts on blocks (hideuser) disappeared after migrating to OOjs UI.

Even though the format has been rolled back on enwiki, the suppress option is still not appearing. For me, it appears very briefly, but then disappears. (Firefox 56, MacOS 10.13, cache cleared, etc.) EDIT: Never mind, I was reminded that the block length needs to be set to indefinite for this to work.

DoRD added a comment to T107036: Convert Special:Block and Special:Unblock to OOUI.

+1 Primefac - For one, the interface alone takes up too much space on a laptop screen, and the dropdown block reasons on enwiki (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Ipbreason-dropdown) now take much more scrolling than they did previously.

DoRD added a comment to T137923: special:checkuser no longer shows if an account has been locked.

It seems there's something wrong with APIs. popup returns "BLOCKED, LOCKED" for every user account.

DoRD added a comment to T95857: Allow IPv6 checks up to /32.

The extension's code you've found just lets sites configure it easily... Given your references to stewards I'm going to assume this is really a Wikimedia site configuration change request.

I don't have an iPhone and Mac, so i have to ask :) Can you scroll the textarea with two fingers (two-finger-scroll)?

DoRD added a comment to T387: RfC: Retained account data self-discovery.

What would people think about something much more specifically oriented towards copying what a couple other major sites have done for security reasons? I have significant concerns about just dumping every checkuser table row we have.

As an example of something I could see a good use for:

DoRD added a comment to T87217: Make OTRS sessions IP-address-agnostic.

I am also having issues remaining logged in to OTRS, and I often see, but not always, an "invalid session" message. I have a stable AT&T U-verse connection, which began allowing IPv6 just a few months ago, but it also seems that I sometimes connect via v4.
