Jidanni added a comment to T272201: On File: page, for size preview "337 × 599 pixels", "Other resolutions" should not offer non-existing "337 × 600 pixels".

And maybe having the filenames reflect both dimensions, not just X,

…/337px-…

would help. (But then cause a lot of pages that have previously embedded them to fail.)

That means it wouldn't be easy to fix this bug by just comparing filenames.

One might say "Well, the program is just trying to give a easy to read full list of resolutions. Don't be so harsh on them for using the word "other."
Nope. as we see in https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Historical_Power_Tower_Foundation_2.jpg the bug does not occur.

Hmmm, Google would say,

  • Are you sure you just want to see the English links? There are [click here] five times as many results for zh-tw.
  • Found no English links. Removing language restriction and showing all results.
  • Etc.

Jidanni added a comment to T250426: Add language links to Special:Nearby.

Well how about also sensing "the main language(s) for the coordinates."
Just like when you connect to Google from Japan, Google somehow guesses you might want their Japanese welcome screen.
So in this case, even though we are reading en.wikipedia.org, based on the coordinates, the system could say to itself, "Well I bet there are some zh-tw articles nearby too. Let's put some tally of them in the side panel the user could click on."

Indeed you can simply do:

Then:

$ perl -nwle 'print for /href=............./g' /tmp/e|sort|uniq -c|sort -nr
