@Daimona you should also remove this tag.
@thiemowmde You could have found the patches by following the links to the two tasks mentioned in the description of this task. But here they are anyway:

@TheDJ equally annoying is for people to -1 patches very quickly (tell one what not to do), but refusing to appear on this Phab task (tell them what to do). But I guess I leave it at that.

@thiemowmde what is the threshold number of weeks/months before you would agree this is being neglected?

Increasing priority. Would not like to see this become another 6-year-old task.

Marking as high priority as it looks like an overt regression substantially affecting the patrolling feature.

So you mean Spdecial:AbuseLog (not Special:AbuseFilter/log, as stated above). I will fix it!
I don't get it. First of all, Special:AbuseFilter/log doesn't have a hide/suppress option (it is a log of changes to filters, why would it have suppress option anyway?)
@Daimona should we close this task?

Since Ed has provided feedback in both children tasks, respectfully, I am assigning him as the owner of this parent task.

@Bawolff from what I understand, the way CheckUser works right now is it calls checkPermissions which is inherited from SpecialPage. I am thinking we can override this method in which we first call the parent function, and then call a hook (and I need your suggestion for its name, does onCUCheckPermission sound good?) to allow other extensions to control whether the method results in a pass or a fail situation. Finally, we can modify MediaWiki-extensions-OATHAuth code to return a pass if the user has 2FA enabled and fail otherwise.

Using 1, 2, 3 and a, b, c as you stated is also common in English Wikipedia! The difference is when you use a, b, c, ... it is only the inline citation that turns into a, b, c, ... and the footnote itself is still numbered. Here is an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Huji/citealpha
Got it. Well, that has been opened in 2013, so I wouldn't hold my breath here. I would still like this task to be implemented.
That CSS is only active for wikis in Parsoid mode (e.g. using Visual Editor). In the View mode (which is arguably the most commonly used mode) it is NOT used.
Can you explain how you mean it when you say "per-wiki"?
All references tags generated by a particular template would need to have this particular counter style applied to them (see further explanation in T196828#4270679).

Will do, in a separate task specifically about that particular issue. :)
Your answer deserves a medal!
As long as that X is really in the order of 30 or 60 minutes, I think it should be okay. Complex CU requests do really take half an hour or so to do.
Would it be possible to, instead of asking users for their password, ask them to enter another 2FA token? As in, reauth them via 2FA? That way, they won't input their password, what they enter is different each time, what they enter is something only they can access, and the annoyance level is probably much less.

I guess I was misunderstanding the purpose of that file. My understanding was that this CSS was supposed to be loaded everytime the interface language is 'fa'. If not, then the problem is essentially something else: that we are loading some CSS for VE which is not loaded for non-VE views (e.g. in the View mode of a page).
@IKhitron The task focuses on dir value not specified on first use, but specified on second use (NULL vs SOMEVALUE). I said "another possibility" because I was talking about the dir value being specified multiple times (e.g. on the second and third usage) in a discordant way (e.g. SOMVALUE vs ANOTHERVALUE).
What I meant to say is: how are we tracking these? Do we want that to also be in a category, or do we want to just continue ignoring the subsequent ones?
Another possibility is if you have two ref tags with conflicting directions. How are we handling it right now?

In this particular scenario, what you suggest works as well. I created a separate task for that.

I'm not sure if I follow.
Increasing to high priority, as it essentially makes it impossible for me to run any unit tests locally.
