On the English Wikipedia, the article description is local and should start with a capital

I know that this is closed, but FYI.
On the English Wikipedia, the article description is local and should start with a capital.

GhostInTheMachine added a comment to T271053: An option to disable constant pulling (GET requests) of the Watchlist.

I understand what you mean, but ...
The change wanted here is not to turn off the polling when Live Updates is turned off, but to have a further option to fully turn off polling.
I would also distinguish between polling and pulling. The GET request is just asking for a "did something change?" status and does not pull any data.
The response for no change is a 204 with no payload. The response after a change is a 200 - also with no payload.

I think that the original title was more correct.
The request should probably be instead to change the 2-way Live Updates button to a 3-way option:

  • do not poll — but allow a manual refresh of the history display without a full page reload
  • poll and stop — as current non-live
  • full live update — as current Live

Also now a problem on en.wikipedia.org. ext.categoryTree is not being loaded

GhostInTheMachine added a comment to T263493: Reader gets appropriate article short description in search results.

FWIW -- a quick heads-up at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical) is often a good idea.
