I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the VisualEditor Team, now called the Editing Team.
When will this come to other wikis? I particularly want to get started on fixing enwiki… ;-)
This is done, as much as it will be, given that the parent RfC is now closed as decided.
To the extent to which we're doing this, this is done (and has been for ~2 years).
Closing this; it's pretty pointless keeping it open as an indefinite task, we have projects for that. Awesome work, thanks Fred. :-)
We're not intending to do this. Ideally we'd block the #tag hack as well.
Theoretically we could show the "editLock" icon (full list) but I don't think that'd help users enough to be worth the complexity/additional slowness.
I'm going to merge this into T153561: Sometimes old WikiText editor loads after user has switched to new WikiText editor in the absence of data that they're different issues.
Ping on this – if you're running into this problem still we want to fix it. :-)
I'm unable to reproduce. I've copied both text that is entirely bold and text that is partially bold and neither has crashed. Have we fixed it since your report?
Ping on this – if you have had it happen to you again (or seen it happen to anyone else) we'd be very interested.
Ping on this – if we could find out if issue 2 ("Doing a roundtrip via visual editor kills every single line-break and extra whitespace in the original text") is still happening that'd be great.
OK, in that case I'm optimistically Invalid-ing this.
At most one of this task, T156047: Make page title selectable, and T159914: VisualEditor: Clicking on the page title should reactivate the Visual editor can feasibly be done. Which?
At most one of this task, T89811: Clicking the page's title h1 should give feedback as to why it is not editable, and T159914: VisualEditor: Clicking on the page title should reactivate the Visual editor can feasibly be done. Which?

Not sure when we fixed this, but we did.
Per the above.
Is there anyone from the Russian Wikipedia community intending to take this on? Do they need any support/advice/assistance?
This is as intended.
I think flagging them as bogus options will be a nice fix. Beyond that I don't think we need to worry about them for Parsoid, and should drop special-casing them from TMH eventually (maybe after a year of them being actively purged via Linter).
