IKhitron added a comment to T243076: Change autoconfirmed days and edits limit in he@wiki..

Ok, I'm just the messenger but I'll try to explain the community position.

The use of protection in the Hebrew Wikipedia is defined so that we use mainly a basic level of protection.

But there are still issues that the community believes need to be protected, rather than raising the level of protection, we prefer to lower the level of permissions for people at increased risk, and the community believes the risk goes down for users who have made 100 edits and 30 days have passed since signing up.

@IKhitron Can you check that I was not wrong?

And one more thing […]

I could not reproduce this in Chromium 90.0.4430.212 on Debian 10.10 “buster” on Hebrew Wikipedia logged out, using the default new Vector skin. I used the following wiki text:

<ref group=hebrew>sometext</ref>
<ref group=hebrew>sometext</ref>
<ref group=hebrew>sometext</ref>
<ref group=hebrew>sometext</ref>

IKhitron added a comment to T287701: Review usages of `.mw-content-ltr` and `.mw-content-rtl`.

Very well. Could I, please, get one example where adding lang changes something in direction on any device? Thank you.

If I understand correctly, the lang attribute does not have any affect on the direction of text. It is not required for this. However it is a useful additional standard piece of markup to include for both semantic reasons and for accessibility reasons (e.g. for screenreaders it might make the "voice" module change to one more suitable for speaking that language). Details about this are explained at https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Understanding/language-of-parts.html

IKhitron added a comment to T287701: Review usages of `.mw-content-ltr` and `.mw-content-rtl`.

And one more thing. I tried to fix by your recommendations, and it generally works. But there is a problem, that I couldn't fix until now.
If we use li::marker in references that have direction, it looks differently on different kinds of browsers. For example,
<ref group=hebrew>sometext</ref>
on a page where there were a lot of references in this group looks like this in most of browsers:

Screenshot_20210821-001051_Samsung Internet.jpg (139×826 px, 58 KB)

which is correct, but looks now like that on Chrome and Edge
Screenshot_20210821-001155_WebInspector.jpg (180×656 px, 55 KB)

You can see the numbering in opposite direction. Tried to add

.hebrewRefList li::marker {
    direction: rtl
}

does not help. Tried all the possible values of direction and unicode-bidi, nothing helps. How can I fix this?

IKhitron added a comment to T287701: Review usages of `.mw-content-ltr` and `.mw-content-rtl`.

As I wrote, such edits don’t worsen the situation in terms of web accessibility; the text was and remained inaccessible to people using screen readers, Braille translators and the like. Your tests do their job, they fix the directionality of the text, they simply don’t fix another issue.

IKhitron added a comment to T287701: Review usages of `.mw-content-ltr` and `.mw-content-rtl`.

The example does lack the lang attribute for WCAG 2.1 AA-level compliance. It’s not directly connected to this class change, though; changing <div class="mw-content-ltr"> to <div dir="ltr"> won’t worsen the situation.

@IKhitron are you familiar with the WVUI library and how we transition to it? The first screenshot is the search before WVUI has been loaded and the second shows WVUI after it is loared and I think this is important context to understanding this issue. Why do you think it is irrelevant? Is there another bug occurring here that we need to understand?

Hi. Can I understand from this that mw-content-ltr and mw-content-rtl classes will not work any more in the new Vector? Our wiki has 26,582 uses of these classes, and they show noncence now. Why did you do this? Why did not you announced a year before, so we can fix all the uses? What other classes are broken? Thank you.

@DannyS712, something's wrong. Looks like this merge brokes the structure when there are site sites without changes, they appear in a list without any collapsing or collapsable.

BTW, Danny, if you do think it's better to use the Meta local timezone, please decline this task, I'll create another one with accordand description.

I just do not expect from international site to work like it's local. And the global list for me is a part of my local wiki, as before, with irrelevant address, not a part of Meta. But again, it's just me.

IKhitron added a comment to T277175: Local time compatibility.

Because Meta is not supposed to be a local wiki for my local timezone, but it's just me. If Danny prefers, using the Meta value could be the second best for most of users that do have their local time there. In this case I will definitely use my local zone on Meta for this purpose.

Is this a request to add custom timezone support for the Global Watchlist only?

This will be the result.

Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-rendering already offers to set the "Time zone" in the "Time offset" area, why not respect that setting instead?

Because the list is on Meta, it can't respect or even recognize this value for the user's home wiki.

It is not a bug, so there are no "actual problems". Only a feature to help 99% of users that do not live in Greenwich timezone to use the product without the same calculations of what does this timestump actually mean at each line.

IKhitron added a comment to T276195: Allow more than five wikis as projects in Global Watchlist.

Well, in 14 from 20 wikis I have maximum 3 pages in each.

IKhitron added a comment to T276195: Allow more than five wikis as projects in Global Watchlist.

Just a thought. If you have two refresh buttons it may help. One to show first five wikis in the list. Another to show all. It can save a lot of performance if one presses the second button much less often.

I have no real idea how to do that, and it'll be confusing with how those work, how they interact with each other, and the live updates mode. My grant to develop the extension is currently over, and while I'm planning to request more funding for continued development and support for now this isn't a priority.

Tell if you change your mind one day, I'll give full answers. Looks like it should took to implement all this for 30 minutes top.

On my device, the global watchlist takes just above 3 seconds to reload. 50 might be a bit high, but why not.

I think concerns about the time it'll take to reload might be a bit exaggerated, since if I recall all of the sites are loaded in parallel, so its based on whichever site takes the longest to load and process (for me thats enwiki) and any other sites added that don't take as long shouldn't result in a longer overall load time.

I used the script with 20 wikis. Now I use it for 5 and the script for the rest.

IKhitron added a comment to T276057: Bullet points visible next to top bar.

"Freezed view" is a way to freeze the top line of the screen when scrolling, you use it in the watchlist.

  1. Open the global watchlist.
  2. Wait until there will be at least 1.5 screens of edits.
  3. Scroll down a screen.
  4. You can see the top line with the buttons remains at the top of the screen, see lines X - X+... below, and also see the bullets of the lines X-2 and X-1 at side.

At least for me, it is. Between the first unseen edit on this page until the last one, both with the same name.

I expect not to see Y again, and all the edits of both pages see in X group, as in Special:Watchlist, this is why.
You can check over there how is it implemented.

IKhitron added a comment to T275437: Jobs are not getting executed or executed really slowly.

This ticket is not a UBN. We've had issues with mass message before, and there's no indication of widespread jobs failures.

Feel free to deprioritize it. The graphs I linked earlier (and that are outdated, as you noted) scared me, so I preliminarily set the priority to UBN. If you think this is not UBN, no objections for decreasing the priority (or reseting to Needs Triage).

FYI: T218511 is on 3 hours (sic!) delay on Meta now.

IKhitron added a comment to T275303: Setting the ordering of the watchlist.

@Iniquity so this should really be documented somewhere, but the order is based on the order edits are made in, and then if there are multiple edits to the same page their are displayed using the timestamp of the latest, but (I'm pretty sure) still sorted using the timestamp of the oldest. Maybe we can add an explicit sort function watchlistUtils...

As you wish. For me, it will look wierd if it "jumps" from side to side on the same page.
