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

Thank you for not waiting for Parsoid deployment. My thanks to C. Scott for that sage advice; it'll be my treat the next time I see you at the Haven.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T185685: Linter extension should allow search results to be limited by a prefix: or titlepart ..

I know that I have suggested in other locations that Linter errors be placed in actual WP Categories instead of on these very limited Special pages, but I can't locate those other suggestions right now. Categories would be helpful in resolving this sort of problem. The categories should probably be subdivided by namespace and linter error, something like 32 (namespaces) times 18 (linter error types) categories in total.

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

One of the notes I added to Help:Images: "If there is a space character between alt and the equals sign, the alt statement will be treated as a caption." This behavior is contrary to how editors are used to working with template parameters. Yes, I know that images are not templates, but it is difficult to manage this inconsistent behavior, and there does not appear to be a good design reason for treating these spaces as syntactically meaningful while (for example) stripping out spaces after the equals sign.

This is an artefact of high database replica lag. The more people edit, and so the more updates are needed, the more it happens. This is especially problematic right now on Wikidata and Commons where the DBs are struggling.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T209493: VE is transforming citation templates into formatted text with "cite class" tags (when copying a reference defined within template-generated reflist).

You're right, "substed" is not quite correct, but somehow, "templatestyles src="Module:Citation/CS1/styles.css" " is getting into the wikicode. I don't imagine that editors are typing that themselves manually, especially editors prone to using VE, so some interaction between the actions of the human editor and VE's programming are probably causing this bug.

Re: Retro's comments: There is already a bot working through a limited set of signatures. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/Ahechtbot_5 and its siblings. The current BRFA process, and the time-consuming nature of finding faulty signatures in talk pages and figuring out a fix for each one, makes it pretty slow to chip away at faulty signatures, but it is possible.

Hello - I wanted to verify that we are indeed monitoring and tracking these accessibility issues. When the site was developed, the outside vendors did utilize some tests (which the site passed), but it is not passing other tests. We absolutely want to resolve that and are talking with the outside vendors and internal teams on next steps in resolving the issues identified. Work on the translation system has recently completed, and so this is next on our list.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T205803: Duplicate reference name errors in English Wikipedia caused by MediaWiki templatestyle handling?.

Over the last 12 hours (or so) there has been a significant drop in the number of topics in Category:Pages with duplicate reference names. I don't see here any notes that indicate an intentional fix was made. But I also note that all I know about the mechanisms involved came from researching this issue.

If there was no change to the MediaWiki software that caused a problem then there is no need for this change.

The bot is also leaving pipes in the url= parameter, causing the same error and breaking the URL. Pipes in the URL parameter should be replaced with %7c.

Of course they can change it. It's WordPress. It's almost as easy to change text in WordPress as it is to change text in a Wikimedia site! All they have to do is copy and paste the English over the German. This should have been done a month ago when the problem was originally pointed out.

Please fix this obvious bug by changing the German text to English as soon as possible. Once it is changed, you will have time to develop a reader-friendly, accessible way to demonstrate that WMF projects are available in multiple languages. I can think of a few; feel free to post here if you would like ideas from your volunteer and donor community.

We still need this. Pages are still showing up every day in the Linter error page lists (for en.WP), even though the Linter lists were created many months ago. We can't fix the errors if they are not on a list or a category somewhere.

I don't use RC either. I don't think I've ever even visited that page; the idea of seeing all recent changes is mind-boggling on en.WP. I suspect that the vast majority of active editors (on en.WP) use Watchlist but not RC.

Replying to Quiddity above, assuming that the Watchlist works in basically the same way: To improve it, put a date/time stamp for the most recent change to the left of the page name, and show something like:

Bumping this again. Every time I am away from WP for a few days, I am reminded of the pointlessness and waste of time involved in having to look at multiple links to see changes for each day. It is especially pointless since the "day" in question is arbitrary, based on the time zone my computer happens to be in.

OK. But this task specifically is about whitespace between items in the form. Your issues, most of which are valid, are off-topic for this task. The parent task, as I said before, is a better place to put them.

All or most of these problems exist in the Vector skin as well, at least on en.WP.

Change can be jarring, and we'll get used to most of it, but the lack of bounding boxes or lines of some sort around each section is clearly a UI bug that should be fixed.

It seems like this particular problem would be resolved by displaying the aliases vertically in a list, rather than concatenating them horizontally. I do not know if that would have negative side effects somewhere else, however.
