The change to "Delete this page" and "Move this page" in Monobook is just annoying. What page could I possibly be interested in interacting with if not "this page", which is now displayed three times, taking up valuable screen estate. Monobook needs short labels to work well.

The problem of wrong category member counts comes up time and again (currently on enwiki at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Problems_with_speedy_deletion_category_counts ). It would be really helpful to have some workarounds for the next time. If there are performance issues, just restrict the "force recount" action to admins or similar.

Actually, the display of the notifications after you click the button is also broken. I see them for a second, then they disappear and I just see a large white frame.
The difference between the first and the last pictures is the bullet points, which are new. Whatever was changed has made it very difficult to click the "tools" button that is behind the notification icons (the bullets make it very easy to click the notifications instead of the button behind them). This makes it much harder for me to access my watchlist on my phone (Chrome, Desktop Wikipedia, responsive monobook, which is usually the most comfortable for me).

I second the suggestion to check for what vision impaired users do: if, say, a quarter of all vision impaired users use larger thumbnail sizes, then although that is not a large percentage of all users, changing this would have a large impact on a specific group. In this case, should this option be removed, it would need to be replaced by a functionally equivalent accessibility enhancement. Accessibility is a core feature, not something of "little benefit".

If there are several links (via redirects) to the same disambiguation page on one page, some of them do not have the mw-disambig class added. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_(surname) : the "Pat Morris (disambiguation)" and "Patrick Morris (disambiguation)" are both redirects to the same disambiguation page, and only one of them has the class.

The English Wikipedia community already correctly tags all non-free media with [[Category:All non-free media]]. If PageImages chooses not to use this (machine readable) system but relies on a different one (whose documentation I was unable to find anywhere on the English Wikipedia), that does not seem to be the English Wikipedia's problem, but one with PageImages.

The view that the English Wikipedia is "extremely puritan" is a question of what you compare it to. Other comparable major encyclopaedia websites, for example the German Wikipedia or the French Wikipedia, manage without having non-free images at all.

In the Android app's Search dialog, non-free images appear without a textual context. As for the link preview, how do you detect whether the snippet provides critical commentary per the NFCC?

If the attribution for images used via PageImages is not improved, you will also have fights with vocal people on other wikis. The German Wikipedia currently disallows linking a non-PD image to anything but its image description page, see https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilfe:Bilder#Von_der_Dateibeschreibungsseite_abweichendes_Linkziel
