Unfortunately it might take awhile for me to sort this out, though. Need to actually find an IE10 somewhere, and such. (Maybe one of my vms has it, but this machine isn't even set up for that anymore.)

It's based on username length. Too long usernames get replaced with the generic string, except it really doesn't take very much to be too long, so that turned out to be a bit silly.

Isarra added a comment to T154371: Review and deploy Timeless skin.

The issue with fr.wikt was basically just an on-wiki config thing exacerbating a really stupid general bug (T173525). It's probably not the only one that could use some adjustments, though, so I went ahead and requested global interface editor rights so I can maybe just fix these sorts of things as we go in the future (at least on projects I understand at all).

Isarra added a comment to T173240: Make the fixed header optional.

Skin-specific preferences are totally doable - just add them the same way as any other extension. More of an issue is when/how to display them (only show when skin is even enabled, maybe?), not cluttering up the preferences further, the age-old issue of 'should it even exist', etc.

@matmarex, yeah, we definitely could have deployed it as was; I just totally forgot at the time what was actually causing the problem and was too tired to think it through. So caution. But it's safe to deploy as is, no problem. Would also make the on-wiki config change easier to sort out to actuallly have it there, too.

Well, we could just move where the content wrapper encompasses, except
that all IS the page content, so perhaps not the best idea. If excluding
user-provided content is the idea, though, shouldn't there be a class
specifically for that? Or is that what mw-body-content is for? What if
you have multiple separated blocks of content?

Isarra added a comment to T167509: Explore the idea of having avatars on Flow.

If you really want a technical solution to possible copyright misuse, allowing files from commons is probably exactly what you should do. Unlike local projects, they don't have fair use images at all, and you can further narrow down options by only showing in search results files belonging to categories of licenses that are viable.

I disagree with this task as well. Even if you support the CoC in general, it really doesn't make sense to put it in every single repository when the CoC is for the people and the interactive spaces in which they work, not the technical output thereof. We don't even have separate files for the license in every single repository, and that actually is for the code itself.

Isarra added a comment to T167312: Add support for showing avatars on Flow boards when the SocialProfile extension is installed.

My point was that images are already used in this way on WMF projects. The issue with avatars is that they generally do not link to the actual file page, and thus attribution-requiring images cannot be used. But this also applies to any uploaded images used as links or buttons or background art for pages or whatever - they just need to be pd or the like, own work, or specifically allowed for this purpose, too. The communities tend to be pretty good about policing this.
