Fixuture added a comment to T103281: "What links here" for article sections.

I don't see how this is feasible to implement. :-/

"Anonymous" is an established MediaWiki terminology.

  • Does your mobile device's browser not have it's own bookmark feature? Are you aware of other mobile browsers which don't provide that?

Yes but it's not shared across devices as I said. And even if that was somehow possible: it's not always just about the technical feature but also the accessibility especially to less experienced users. And besides of that there's many other potential uses that are only possible if a Wikipedia-internal bookmark-system is used (such as features for organization, sharing and sorting them).

  • What Phabricator projects are relevant here?

I hoped more knowledgeable users in here might know this. It's relevant to Wikipedia with all its direct subprojects (saying: sideprojects such as WikiMedia are not necessarily included but could be included as well).

Yes! nice finding. I'm wondering why that's intended to be just for WikiMedia. Its usefulness for Wikipedia is pretty obvious so I'm gonna ask them.

  • Is this a MediaWiki extension request?

No, a Wikipedia one.

  • Is this something you expect to be implemented into MediaWiki core?

No - only optionally. And sincerely I don't know which Phabricator-Projects are related here since I only know the Wikipedia sideprojects and would need an explanation for each of them to be able to correctly categorize this issue if that's expected. For what I know it's related to any backend and frontend project that is responsible for the surface & functionality of the official Wikipedia (articles) on any device.

Fixuture added a comment to T92001: enwikisource missing ShareAlike 4.0 License.

I assume this refers to the "Licensing" dropdown on https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Special:Upload

Yes.

So this might just require someone with permissions to edit the Licenses page and add it (on-wiki), and not be a software problem at all (and invalid as a task in Phabricator as we don't handle on-wiki content here)? Could you confirm?

Seems so, yes. Really weird that it's not on there because I'd guess that's a feature that's being used heavily.
Would be nice if you could contact some guys with those rights.

Fixuture added a comment to T91914: Allow the upload of .psd .pdn [...] files on Wikimedia projects.
  • Would we be able to provide a way to preview the contents of a PSD or generate thumbnails of them? Or are these just going to be downloadable files?

I think the best way to go about this would be to automatically export an (probably .jpg) image out of the .psd file. It shouldn't be just a downloadable file but a Wikimedia image like the rest - it might also be used in articles.

Fixuture added a comment to T2738: Ability to watch section levels of pages.

This would be very useful! Had the same idea - glad to see it already being filed here. It's really inconvenient to have to watch a whole page if you just want to get notified at changes of a specific section. Eventually this would actually lead to more people watching more pages and that more efficiently. Hence it might lead to a significant improvement of Wikipedia's quality. Among many other things it would also be useful for talk pages & meta discussions fostering more & better discussion there.
-> It allows people to more efficiently watch more pages.
So I really hope for this to get solved at some point.
