Jonesey95 added a comment to T279702: Suggestededit-add_1.0 is suggesting bad short descriptions on en.WP; short description feature should be disabled until fixed.

It looks like this technical fix did not work. A new editor with just two prior contributions appears to have used suggestedit to spam invalid short descriptions. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/1NiNja1bUmhSoTXozBRBEtR8LeF9TGbZBN_1_.pdf

Jonesey95 added a comment to T4877: Obtain a list of edits to watched pages since last visit.

This request is almost fulfilled by the Preference "Expand watchlist to show all changes, not just the most recent", but that option shows changes divided into multiple days for some (or for no) reason. If I go away for multiple days and a page has changes on each day, I have to click to see the changes for each day instead of being able to click a single link to see all of the changes since I last visited the page. Please remove the day-by-day breakdown.

Another variant on this bug: the following wikicode renders on en.WP with the "link" section as the caption, and Linter does not flag the real caption as extra text. That looks like two bugs in one image call.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T297443: Add a linter category for inline images with captions.

The reasons above, and more, are why this detection has been rolled back in the MediWiki code (and will be deployed soon). On the English Wikipedia, many millions of pages were affected. I do not think that there is a need to comment further on this phabricator ticket. If the developers decide that they think this situation is a problem, they will start a discussion and a link to that discussion will be posted here.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T297443: Add a linter category for inline images with captions.

This change appears to have been rolled out without notification to the community, and the help page is woefully inadequate. I request that it be reverted until there can be a discussion about why this change is needed, what priority it should have, and how instances of this condition (I hesitate to call it an error at this time) should be addressed. Certainly the advice to put the caption into alt= is not good advice in many cases (adding thumb or some other parameter that displays the caption is better in many cases).

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.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T216003: Linter fails to detect multiple "upright" parameters as a Bogus file option.

It appears that the first error (duplicate upright) is detected now after some Linter bug patches, but the second error (a quote mark following the number) is still not detected. See this test case:

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!

Jonesey95 added a comment to T275074: Gallery does not allow lowercase "center" "left" or "right" as a caption for a gallery image.

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.

How does 16.6M pages and 18.5 GB of wikitext compare to how many pages and GB are edited or otherwise refreshed per day or month on enwiki?

Jonesey95 added a comment to T157670: Periodically run refreshLinks.php on production sites..

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.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T272667: Consult volunteers about potential signature line break requirement.

A point of clarification: I am assuming that like the Linter requirement to avoid line breaks inside span tags or italic/bold/small markup, this requirement will disallow CR or LF characters, but wikitext tags like br or p will be allowed.

This bug is somewhat confusing, but editors at en.WP are definitely being confused by the capitalization of the first character of the bolded label, even though the parameter name, which is all-lower-case, is being used as the label.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T139573: Simple html formatting within Wikidata labels.

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. (Amaranthaceae)".

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).

The following wikicode samples assign the non-numeric error category on en.WP:

{{formatnum:−9.1}}
{{formatnum:−9000000}}

The input, negative 9.1 or negative nine million, are valid numbers in the appropriate format. Should they throw an error? My apologies if I am reporting this in the wrong ticket.

I can't reproduce this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Cscott/T237467

Those aren't - (ie, \u2D, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyphen-minus) those are \u2212 which may look pretty but is not considered numeric.
