Isarra added a comment to T217158: RFC: Skin templating.

@kchapman Would it be possible to do this meeting at some other time/day? As one of the people most familiar with the current skinning system, it'd probably be good if I could make it, and that is not a time I will be able to make as I am going to be on a plane somewhere over the atlantic.

Soooo... there actually was some sort of consensus at the time, right? I'm not actually expected to get an undefined new consensus to override something unspecified, am I?

Isarra added a comment to T217172: Vector should replace rendering from PHP with Mustache.

How does this affect downstream skins? AFAIK Vector is popular as a "parent" skin; will modifying it become harder (or easier)? More specifically, will there be a mechanism to override a template?

Isarra added a comment to T217883: Use the "Timeless" skin by default on frwiktionary.

You know, that is a good point about Wiktionaries being their own thing. I'd personally still prefer to see this discussed across the lot of them, but... maybe I'm also partly just saying that because I'm trying to put the whole thing off because this just scares me, too. Changing skins is a big thing, and we definitely need to be working on actually moving toward doing that, on all projects, never even mind if it's to the same skins, but are we ready? Is this skin ready?

I've just been avoiding this entire thing because it scares me (sorry), but if we do such a change, we do probably want to do it across all (normal) projects, and have a consensus that it's time to change the overall identity of the lot, since visual identity is a huge thing.

For mobile particularly, we really need some sort of indicator like that. Unfortunately there really isn't any way to do that without putting in either some rather complicated extension-specific stuff in the skin, or skin-specific stuff in the extension.

Isarra added a comment to T215822: Timeless skin Your account dropdown username not modifiable.

(The issue is the space for the username is very small currently and it just replaces it with 'account' if it doesn't fit, which... isn't really ideal. Need better handling in general, as this use case means it'd be likely to be even longer.)

Isarra added a comment to T215822: Timeless skin Your account dropdown username not modifiable.

Okay, I gotta figure out how to make the header in general less feckin' dumb in the first place to make this actually likely to... show up, and such, but that sounds good to me. Suppose there's no particular reason not to just do it as is in the meantime, regardless...

Isarra added a comment to T215695: New message indicator hidden in the personal menu.

The meaning of such a highlight is going to be very unclear by itself, as the meaning it's supposed to be conveying depends on the user having prior knowledge of the context.

Isarra added a comment to T215695: New message indicator hidden in the personal menu.

Hmm, looks like whoever said the yellow thing was a gadget in general was also wrong on that one. It is hardcoded into the extension, which, given that it only even makes any sense on skins with a string-layout like monobook, seems like a rather bad move given how uncommon that actually is these days.

Feb 12 2019, 12:23 PM · Confirmation prompt for rollback action
Isarra added a comment to T215024: Make sure users with enabled confirmation prompt cannot accidentally rollback without confirmation.

I was under the impression that the entire point of the right was for countering vandals and spammers. It sounds like maybe these two wikis should perhaps considering changing that configuration, if it's a problem, as well?

Feb 12 2019, 12:06 PM · Confirmation prompt for rollback action
Isarra added a comment to T215024: Make sure users with enabled confirmation prompt cannot accidentally rollback without confirmation.

Or is this a particular issue with specific devices, such as on mobile? Because if it's a lot easier to accidentally click on it on a phone, having a confirmation specifically on those devices could make a lot more sense (so perhaps as a part of MF?).

Feb 12 2019, 11:12 AM · Confirmation prompt for rollback action
Isarra added a comment to T215024: Make sure users with enabled confirmation prompt cannot accidentally rollback without confirmation.

Is this actually desired? I know some wikis have scripts to do this sort of thing, but scripts sound exactly the place for it in the first place - for the most part, the relevant problems we have onwiki are with insufficient tools to counter vandals and spammers, not that they're too powerful.

Isarra added a comment to T215822: Timeless skin Your account dropdown username not modifiable.

So the expectation is that the username be pulled from the data array, so that way your extension can just change the display name to something else?

Isarra added a comment to T215608: Table border collapse in Timeless.

The reason for the border collapse was to get 1px borders between the cells instead of 2px, but evidently the default wikitable styles don't need that, which is interesting...

Isarra closed T215695: New message indicator hidden in the personal menu as Declined.

In Timeless, the assumption is that with Echo/Notifications installed, the coloured notification badges should be sufficient indicator on their own (and the colours should actually be working now, too). This is why the badges are explicitly moved out of the main menu, and in terms of skin-extension interaction, this handling is consistent with the general intent of Echo/Notifications itself.
