Most of the edits linked above were incorrect modifications to existing short descriptions, so fixing the two bugs described above (the edit summary containing "suggestedit-add" incorrectly, and fixing the lower-casing of the first letter) should help.

I'm not sure if this is the same bug or a different bug, but I just came across something similar with "Frame". This syntax on en.WP renders correctly (the word "Frame" appears as a caption) but generates a Linter false positive error:

Jonesey95 added a comment to T132308: Internationalise citoid dates.

editors will inevitably write 2011-12 when they mean 2011-2012. There is no way to tell if 2011-12 means 2011-2012 or December 2011. So it is an error and should always be flagged as such.

I don't think this is correct. It might be a potential error, but it is not necessarily an actual error.

Additionally, I think this potential error affects approximately one in sixteen possible dates in the YYYY-MM format. Consider:

YYYY-MMinterpretation
YYYY-00not a valid month number, therefore a multi-year range
YYYY-13MM ≥13 = not a valid month number, therefore a multi-year range
YY01-01MM 01 to 12 are ambiguous when YYYY ends in 00 to 12
YY13-01year–month, because 13 > 01

I don't think that the citation template should be trying to spot typos.

So that looks like only 10% more edit volume (on en.WP) over the course of a month to get caught up, and then something similar to that each month to keep pages current (articles could be kept "more current" than other namespaces, if necessary to control loads). Can someone please kick off this process? Thanks!

For clarification, in case people are looking at this without context: Sometimes editors use "Center" as the caption for a gallery image, typically for an image showing the central area of buildings in a municipality. That caption is erroneously hidden by the MediaWiki software. It should be displayed.

Doing this for ALL pages isn't feasible, a rough estimate comes to about 30 years of rendering time (a billion pages at one per second). We'll have to filter at least by namespace and by category. Which means we can't just run it periodically. It'll be a manual thing every time.

Is this going anywhere? There is still a need to be able to display an accurate version of many labels. Chemical and mathematical formulas need subscripts and superscripts. Species names need italics. For a concrete example, see https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q92315294 where the title should be displayed as "Reinstatement of Ptilotus parviflorus (Lindl.) F.Muell.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T237467: Invariant failed: Bad UTF-8 (full string verification).

Sorry, that's not how formatnum works. It takes a PHP numeric string and formats it for human consumption, as per http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-numbers.html#Number_Format_Patterns and https://www.php.net/manual/en/class.numberformatter.php. It is intended for making the output of computed values more human-friendly.
This is how it has always worked, it just used to be more tolerant and pass through non-numeric characters (like U+2212) unmodified, bypassing localization and user numeric preferences. Please open a different phab task if you would like to change it (I'd be supportive of making the *output* of formatnum use a U+2212 for instance).

There is not about local consensus of enwiki, they can do whatever they want, it's about how the developers and the fond implement the integration with wikidata and between all projects.

Nothing will change regarding the Wikidata integration for other projects (besides English Wikipedia).

Once again, the current implementation creates an unused comfused template across hundreds of wikis because of ContentTranslator, and also allows large wikis to be removed from the workflow instead of integrating them, which degrades the quality of the data on Wikidata.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T140606: Check user signature for linter errors.

In my experience (finding and fixing hundreds of thousands of Linter errors on en.WP), this is just how the current Linter works. If there are multiple errors, it does not always highlight the correct or complete string, and it does not always correctly identify the error types. It's a fundamental challenge with parsing invalid syntax: it's invalid, so it is difficult to write an algorithm to interpret its invalidity correctly every time.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T231161: Add in/not in content namespace to Special:Linterrors.

Or implement tracking categories, as has been suggested for years. I don't know why we have these Special pages that make it harder to see and count the errors. The "edit" links are handy, but that's about it; LintHint provides those for pages anyway.

This seems like something that should be addressed via WPCleaner or bot runs. It is not invalid markup, so it should not be tagged as part of the Linter project.

Thanks for the response. I continue to hope that someday, the Linter tracking will actually apply Wikipedia categories, so that we can work with them in the usual way.

Why was the error-tracking category (Pages using invalid self-closed HTML tags) removed? Will there be something to replace it? Gnomes use it regularly to find pages with invalid code; will it be possible to find such code in some other way? Will each wiki have to create its own detection method?

This is the wrong order. The correct order is:

  1. Warn the tech folks about incoming questions ("STEP 4")
  2. Stop the bleeding ("STEP 3")
  3. Ask affected people to update their sigs ("STEP 2")

"Warn the tech folks" and "Stop the bleeding" should happen in rapid succession. After that, we can take months to "Ask people".

I am disappointed that obsolete tags are not being addressed in this phase. It seems like this means that obsolete tags are not really a problem to be fixed, if the WMF is willing to implicitly encourage them to proliferate on project pages. Perhaps the Linter "obsolete tag" checking should be deactivated, for consistency.

Please read the request again. It is not entirely clearly written, but the request is asking ISBNs to be pasted as plain text. The MW software turns plain-text ISBNs into magic links (deprecated but still active). Treating ISBNs as plain text has been the request this whole time.

Thank you for the more detailed answer, the key part of which for me is that this may have been happening way back in 2015 (or possibly still in March 2019, in the diff I provided above, where a new section was added and the unchanged section above it appears to have been modified poorly by Parsoid), but it is probably not happening now. That seems like a valid reason to close this bug. We gnomes will continue to fix the links-in-links errors.

I don't think so. For example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Willoughby has the same type of error (unclosed italics). LintHint and the Page information both show 21 missing end tag errors. My experience has been that on most pages I have worked on, the number of errors reported on Page information has matched LintHint's error count.

This is probably a bad idea. An unclosed "font size=+3" or unclosed "tt" tag can make the whole rest of a talk page display giant text, or monospace text, respectively. Whether the font or tt tag gets replaced or closed by a de-Linting editor, the problem needs to be fixed.

As long as we allow {{subst}} in a signature, there is no reasonable way for us to continually validate that what is transcluded is balanced wikitext, therefore the only reasonable thing to do is to not allow any transclusions in signatures.
