Thanks! I guess the method we use was acquired from some documentation that is now outdated.

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T193392: Deprecate global namespace handling of the prefix keyword (reverted).

Hey, I don't know why you broke prefix:namespace: search, just one note: the warning text

The namespace found in the search term prefix: is not compatible with the namespaces requested. You can fix it by prefixing your query with all:.

is a lie for ruwiki: all: search doesn't work there, and that's T165110: Let search with "all:" keyword on non-English projects, not only with its translations.

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T165283: Editing a page with unflagged changes should edit latest version in VE, even if you view the stable version.

While we have implemented a JavaScript fix in ruwiki for stabilized articles, from time to time we have users (example) who switch somehow (knowingly or unknowingly) to the stable version of not-a-stabilized article. Then they edit with VisualEditor, probably don't notice the warning that they are editing an old version, save the article—only to get an ORES-based bot to revert their edit due to deletion of text. Is this fix going to exclude such cases, or does it apply only to stabilized articles?

As I noted in T169315#3735840, mediawiki.hlist is so far very weak compared to Edokter's snippet. Starting with the fact that mediawiki.hlist has '•' as a delimiter (instead of ' • '), which creates disproportionate space if <li> elements are not followed directly one after another without any spaces. ;: lists aren't supported too.

Edokter at enwiki has done a huge job implementing .hlist class, it's very well-designed. Many wikis use it, including eswiki, ruwiki, frwiki. Why should this Minerva novelty, consisting of a few rules, replace it, making local technicians have to do a huge job resolving the conflict and/or replacing .hlist with .hlist-separated all over the site? Couldn't it just receive another name and/or be limited to Minerva interface area?

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T142585: Add a hash or CRC module to Scribunto.

Hi @hoo, we've been implementing the functionality mentioned in the task description, namely generating unique reference names for references created from Wikidata (and solving some adjacent problems), in ruwiki (after T175725: Deploy HTML5 sections to WMF production was done for ruwiki and some things broke). Do you have any thoughts on which algorithm is better suited for generating hash values for references? I've done my modest research and stopped at fnv164 as it is fast, and 64-bit hash reduces collision probability to a negligibly small value. But maybe I am missing something.

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T173710: Job queue is increasing non-stop.

I think one of the reasons contributing to the problem is the same problem we had with T171027: "Read timeout is reached" DBQueryError when trying to load specific users' watchlists (with +1000 articles) on several wikis, we stopped emitting injectRCRecord jobs but we are still emit refreshlinks jobs to commonswiki, People are trying to make the whole thing more efficient but I guess it takes some time, we can spin up more job runners but that's not my call to make.

Hello, I'm a technician at ruwiki, and our wiki is one of those that were experiencing the T171027 problem the most. In the same time, I've noticed in the stats presented in the comments above that the numbers for ruwiki are constantly one of the highest. Could it be connected?

This is actually a major design breakage, as it's one of the most visible spots on the page, so I'll set the priority to "Unbreak Now!" in hope of drawing attention to it.

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T173507: Menu footer links displaced.

And one more .hlist-related issue in MinervaNeue: conflict with local .hlist (present on enwiki, ruwiki at least).


As you can see on the screenshot, list separators are misplaced to the right. And they should be bullets (•), not bold interpuncts (·) in MinervaNeue. Adding .hlist to the selector to increase specificity helps, as well as adding font-weight: normal;.

.hlist.hlist-separated li:after {
	content: '•';
	font-weight: normal;
	...
}
.hlist.hlist-separated :last-child:after {
	content: '';
}

As this rule overwrites what I suggested in the previous comment, that one should be updated too:

.footer-info.hlist.hlist-separated li:after {
	content: none;	
}

It would be good to also add something like

}

.footer-info is the list where enwiki has "Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License...". In ruwiki, there's more than one item in that list, and it's also not improbable possibility for other wikis.

Jack_who_built_the_house added a comment to T152540: Migrate to HTML5 section ids.

Also, is there any chance that links with fragments that have no _ in place of will work too? I guess adding one more artificial ID would be excessive, but some lightweight JavaScript might check if the fragment contains spaces and replace them with _ letting the user jump to the requested section, just like it is done with redirects like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia%20Foundationhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation. I think it can be a pretty common user case: editing an article and wanting to go to some section without previewing in the browser and searching for that link. With that JavaScript, simple copypaste of the wikilink contents (like [[Wikimedia Foundation#Projects and initiatives]]) to the address bar would get you there.

So is using the percent-encoded IDs the embraced option here? If yes, have you considered an opportunity to interact with Chrome developers somehow (at least via their bug tracker) to urge them to implement the decoding of percent-encoded strings in fragments in address bar to improve readability, as it is done in other browsers (at least Firefox, as far as I know)? This affects not only section links, but media viewer URLs (example link), probably some other features too.

@Jytdog I'm not sure how necessary it is on Wikipedias with Latin alphabet where 255 means 255 (I believe that edit summary field becoming 50px shorter (as I calculated) should've been compensated by its lengthening), but on non-Latin Wikipedias 255 can mean 127 or even 85 (until T6715 is resolved), which you run off pretty fast. In RuWP, we had a gadget for character counter. No we don't need it, and that's good.

Speaking from the viewpoint of design, I'm also not sure that after indentation removal, the direction of gradient in the divider line from the center to the edges is well-grounded. For my design taste, as now everything in the sidebar is aligned along one line in the left (after pixel differences get removed), the direction from the left to the right is more consistent.
