KTC added a comment to T63958: Use existing $dateFormats to format dates on Wikidata.

@thiemowmde You can accept the idea that "yyyy-mm-dd" may not make sense for some people in the world, but not when a native language reader telling you that "dd Mmm yyyy" makes even less sense? When doing localisation, if native readers are telling you that what you have make no sense in that language, stop and listen.

KTC added a comment to T165224: Wikivoyage-l has no list admin.

I personally don't really care about the list in question because I'm not an active contributor to the associated project. It only matters to me when emails get sent pretending to be from me (T160529) and there's no list admin to ask to set up a filter preventing those from getting through.

KTC added a comment to T66698: Upload hangs after "describe" step.

It having been ignored for more than a year doesn't mean it's "probably not an issue anymore", especially if no unrelated changes have been made that might have fixed it indirectly. I have no recent experience of the problem because I have been using an external uploader (VicuñaUploader) for quite a while to specifically avoid the issues. Don't think "don't use our own uploader, use something else" is how we want to solve issues with the UploadWizard.

Whose cache? The user's, the ISP's, Wikimedia server's? Multiple users have experienced this, so even if it's the users computers, should look at whether there's anything that can be done server side to reduce/eliminate this.

@atgo, can't tell because we have active banners scheduled displaying (until tomorrow) so I'm seeing those. I think I kept seeing the POTY banner until the steward vote / wikimania banner came online. Of course, I'm seeing the POTY banner again, but this time it's expected because it's currently R2 at the moment and it's been set to display for this last week.
