Patch merged and deployed, but the problem is not totally solved as said in previous comment. We haven't any idea/can't do anything to resolve your exact problem.

Sure. And also, there are words where you want to hyphenate in places you decided, not the auto-hyphenation mechanism. So adding this manually will be very helpful.

IKhitron added a comment to T85847: Grant editcontentmodel right to all logged in users.

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.

I'm not following why developers would be refusing to allow access to communities that have specifically reviewed and requested access for certain groups though? Do you have the phab numbers to review?

Seems like a nice to have feature to me, but you can just change it back if abused? Changing content models is even easier to revert than page moves (because of the redirects).

Thanks for calling me, but I'm the wrong person to ask this - I do not work with this wizard.
But I agree you should not spend your time on wikEd compatibility. The wikEd gadget has a lot of problems, and I see many complains that it destroys either interface or pages wikicode. Avoiding common work of these two tools is indeed a good idea.

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?

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.

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.

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 und 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.

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.

IKhitron added a comment to T189806: Deploy GlobalPrefs on production.

Hi. Pay attention, that after the deployment many local preferences where restored to default, so the user values were lost. Looks like in notifications tab only, but maybe I just did not see it in others.

IKhitron added a comment to T198477: [he.wiki] Reference list is emptied when adding a new reference on a wiki that uses template generated references (not <ref> tags).

You do aware that reference templates are not used for localization only? Even enwiki has them, as far as I remember.

It took exactly ten years to add css class to ref tag for rtl support. :-)

I tested it earlier today - without the editsitecss/editsitejs you can't delete the page, even if it is unprotected.

Can you empty the old group? It should probably be removed from all users before the definition is deleted.

Move over everyone to interface-admin (you can make the translation say "interface editor" if you really want, the name was chosen though to make it clear that this is a very powerful privilege), interface-editor can be removed afterwards if you want.

IKhitron added a comment to T199416: Cache update time for Gadgets and Common.js/css regressed from 5 min to 1 hour.

I do not know if this can help, and if it is relevant at all...
In the last month changes in common.css work too slow. When adding a new style value for all pages, it takes at least 15 minutes to see them. Ctrl-F5 and purge do not help.

IKhitron added a comment to T199246: Parsoid should expose content inside <includeonly> to editors instead of hiding it in the meta tag's data-parsoid attribute.

From what I can see, Parsoid doesn't even expose the contents on <includeonly> tags to the editor, so we have nothing to diff. I assume it is only preserved by SelSer?

IKhitron added a comment to T110645: Interwiki support for Newsletter extension.

Tentative plan after meeting with @Addshore:
Announce and notification do not change as Echo can handle interwiki notifications without any changes.
Thoughts, questions.

But announce and notification will be triggered on local wiki, I hope, not on meta?
