IKhitron closed T207456: Warning alternates between default and specified warning do not work as Invalid.

Well, it works. I found the problem. Thank you for your help. The problem was that when I changed the name of message, and then choosed "another message" in the popup menu, it returned to "abusefilter-disallowed", probably as a browser bug, so I edited the wrong message. So, (A) can be closed as invalid. I still do not know why did I see the double message in (B), but I can't reproduce it any more. Maybe it was has something with (A), still I can't understand how is it possible. Or some system glich. Anyway, I'm closing the task as invalid now, and if (B) will return, I'll reopen it. Thanks again.

IKhitron updated subscribers of T96041: Allow excluding soft redirected categories on Special:UnusedCategories.

Thanks to @eranroz for calling me. Well, I think it can be very useful feature. But for me, soft redirect isn't the main issue, but tracking categories. There are thousands that we try to keep emptied, and removing them from the special page will be very helpful. About the list of excluded categories, excluded and empty categories, or excluded and non empty categories - I do not really care, because I can use query. But on large wikis it can't cope with this, so these lists can help too.

This shouldn't be blocking using templatestyles, when creating a new template style (e.g. https://test.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:389573/styles.css) is is already in the correct content model.

Sorry, I do not understand how can it help.

IKhitron added a comment to T201340: Local notification settings stuck at latest global preference.

@IKhitron Are you looking to stop using global preference for notifications? If you are using global preference, you should not be affected by this bug. Local exceptions should work as expected.

Day A: I opened Special:GlobalPrefs on my bot account. I changed one non-notification preference and saved. I opened Special:Preferences and saw it really works. I reopened Special:GlobalPrefs and removed the only change I did. I do not use the global preferences on that account any more.

That sounds like it works. Your local preferences are the ones that are active, global preferences are not affecting anything.

However, when you disabled GlobalPreferences, please check your local preferences and see what they are saved at. The bug potentially overrode those settings, so you might expect to have a certain checkbox on when it is actually off in local. Can you verify what local prefs you have for this bot?

Day C: I payed attention that one notification preference does not work. I opened Special:Preferences and saw that the checkbox is surprisingly not checked. I checked it and saved.

Day E: I payed attention that the same notification preference does not work. I opened Special:Preferences and saw that the checkbox is surprisingly not checked.

Which preference? The local? The global? If your global preferences are off, your local preferences are the ones that are working... is that what happened? It's a little confusing, I'm trying to make sense of what's wrong.

I'd like to see if I can understand what doesn't work, but I also don't want to destroy any of your preferences. Can you tell me wht is the bottom line of what you want to have, as preferences, at the end? Do you want to use the global preferences or the local ones?

It's not enough, needs also padding 0, and yes, I also did this.

IKhitron added a comment to T58845: Remove preference "Show talk page message indicator in my toolbar" (echo-show-alert).

Hi. Sorry to see it was removed. A little explanation: I used, and I believe many others, to use this feature not because of colour and not because of extra space. It was because clicking on this area calls "open user's talk page un read view" instead of "open user's talk page diff between last watched revision and the current one". It is just not helpful - you can't recognize all the changes.

IKhitron added a comment to T201340: Local notification settings stuck at latest global preference.

@IKhitron Are you looking to stop using global preference for notifications? If you are using global preference, you should not be affected by this bug. Local exceptions should work as expected.

IKhitron added a comment to T202593: Show a warning if the same named ref tag has two conflicting dir values.

But, an example

A named references defined in LTR direction<ref name=x dir=rtl>right-to-left.</ref> and reused in LTR direction<ref name=x dir=rtl />

should generate a warning too. I mean, it should not be checked what is the value of dir in the instance without text.

IKhitron added a comment to T196827: Use the dir parameter only from the full definition of a named ref tag.

Hello, @Huji and @Arlolra. Thank you.
But I'm reading these two tasks, and I do not understand something important. Do you mean that from now on a named ref should have the same dir parameter on all instances? Why? Who needs the dir in all instances without text? It's redundunt information and it will disturb the user to write it over and over again, I believe it will be better if the instance with text will be used for direction, and the rest must be without dir parameter at all, throwing an error message if they are. What do you think?

IKhitron added a comment to T114117: Drop externallinks.el_from_namespace on wmf databases.

Absolutely. But looks like it takes years, so I suggested something simple until then.

IKhitron added a comment to T114117: Drop externallinks.el_from_namespace on wmf databases.

I did not work with this table a lot of time, so I run a simple query to remember:

select * from externallinks limit 10

to see the schema.
I saw that el_from_namespace was 0, seems like all 10 examples where articles. So I used this field in a new query, something like

#...
and el_from_namespace in (0, 6, 10, 14, 100, 118)
#...

Run the query, get the results. Everything looks ok. Exported to pagepile, started to work. And only then saw links to talk namespaces. If the value of this field was always -1, and not unfortunately fitting one of actually existing namespaces, I would (1) saw it in the first query and understood it's not working, and (2), the second query was empty in place of bringing wrong results.
Summary: for now, all entries marked as they were in articles namespace, and it's wrong.

I wasn't sure why query results looks weird, so I eventually found this. Maybe you should set this number to -1 or something in all wikis for now, I don't know.

Most of them do not have tooltips, because hover works differently, or does not work at all.

IKhitron added a comment to T201784: Implement option "require two-factor authentication only for dangerous actions".

Hi. Here are my two cents. I'm an interface admin. I never mark on mobile "keep me logged in" because of security - if somebody will "take" my mobile I do not want the account to be used. If 2FA will be forced on interface admins, I'll need to mark it, to avoid 2FA every day. So it will decrement the security, not increment.
