Jidanni added a comment to T255232: Check for unclosed tags in signatures upon saving preferences.

When saving preferences, a simple check for valid HTML or at least counting the number of opening and closing tags should be done.

Jidanni added a comment to T205619: Upload to Commons fails with a common ADSL connection in Taiwan.

Idea: Perhaps make a page, that combines phabricator's upload form, and
https://tools.wmflabs.org/url2commons/index.html ,
allowing ADSL users to upload in one step.

When we go to the library, we can see which books are thick vs. thin vs. endless.

Users want to know how many items there are.
Yes you might say well just look at the (ever growing) scrollbar.
But that might mean one big item, vs. 1000 small items... same scrollbar.
So why not simply give them a count up at top?

Jidanni added a comment to T249278: Highway numbers have interstitial spaces added .

Also you will note the numbers are too low in their boxes.
Also seen in T249282, where "投77", though unaffected by this space bug, still is placed too low.
See https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/23.9611/120.9464 for examples of how to do it better.

Jidanni added a comment to T248411: FormFactory doesn’t show the default tab as selected on first view.

Upon first arrival at e.g., Special:ManageWiki/settings... but that is Miraheze specific... but they say it is a MediaWiki bug. So I don't know what to say.

Yep, one must resort to the API to dig out the information . https://m.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Siteinfo

Anyway, currently, the timezone a (not logged into) wiki is showing is
such a secret, that without access to the $wg settings one cannot figure
out what the owner has set it to! Sure, analysis of the raw HTML reveals
"timestamp":"20200302194849" and HTTP HEAD shows Last-Modified: Sun, 01
Mar 2020 17:41:33 GMT but do we really need to start trying to go
further and analyze those?
