ManosHacker added a comment to T190664: Wikipedia: admin selectable size limit in local wiki file uploads.

The only consensus, so far, is in the usefulness of automatic disallowing a fair use file creation onwiki, if it is oversized. The two step procedure (upload, create file page), that gives the option to check image area dimensions before page creation, was not initially realized. A constructive point on the initial proposal was that different fair use file types might need different file size limit. I will let the full conversation find its balance on all topics before I go to English VP.

ManosHacker added a comment to T190664: Wikipedia: admin selectable size limit in local wiki file uploads.

The proposal is for Wikipedias mainly. Files that are already there are not affected, only new uploads. In fact all that is needed is implementing the size limit for choices and each wiki can decide for itself.

I agree that help has to come from inside the page, focused on the need / mistake = focused on human. The GuidedTour would be more useful if it popped up on mistakes, giving short directions. Let's begin with script code for detection.

Useful for common mistakes like using bold or links in section headings, and maybe for duplicate reference optimization, although these are for VisualEditor and I suspect medical students use the code editor.

ManosHacker added a comment to T178354: Edit-adaptive templates support (no caching when {{REVISIONID}} magic word is met).

Chameleon (my term) is an adaptive template that has a different appearance and behavior, depending on the mode of the page (read or edit).
It is defined as such whenever {{REVISIONID}} check is performed inside a template.
Caching kills the {{REVISIONID}} check functionality in VisualEditor.
This is a bug. Caching should be excluded for pages containing {{REVISIONID}}.

ManosHacker added a comment to T172631: Parameter "prefix" is ignored in Inputbox, when useve=true..

No, it is an issue of inputbox. The string passed to VE is without the prefix.
The proof is that VE is able to create user pages, via Inputbox,
without using the prefix, as long as the whole path of the page to be created is typed.
Inputbox does not ever send the whole string (combination of prefix and typed string) to VE.

ManosHacker added a comment to T144695: Harv style citations based on T95702 solution.

A good practice is to offer multiple lists to select harv citations from, (items grouped by ==section== in different lists) and prefer to automatically expand the list already containing most harv refs anchored on its items or the most recent one used during the edit. This will allow citing even the author's books, if needed.

ManosHacker added a comment to T144695: Harv style citations based on T95702 solution.

Only cite book containing ref=harv , cite journal containing ref=harv and citation bulleted citations should feed the list to select from to make harv references. The list of books a writer has written should not be cited by any of the three above, meaning that citation should not be used and cite book should be used without the ref=harv parameter/switch, there.

This example does not contain any " {{Citation " citation. And should not. I cannot find an example why someone would like to make harv references out of such lists. I feel there is a misunderstanding here.

ManosHacker added a comment to T144695: Harv style citations based on T95702 solution.

A " {{Citation " citation should be treated as if it already contains a " |ref=harv " in code, because it behaves like it does even if the parameter is omitted. There are articles with 100, or more, " {{Citation " citations, used by harv referencing (example). I should be able to make a new harv ref easily, based on a citation -or a combination of citations- that already exist, like in the example given.

  • when VE detects a bulleted " {{Citation " it will be a citation for use with harv
  • any bulleted citation can be toogled (while being created or edited) to be used or not for harv referencing, by adding or removing the " |ref=harv "
  • when adding a new bulleted citation, " |ref=harv " (or not) gets inherited as a selection from just above, if just above it there is also a bulleted citation
  • non-harv citations wil not appear in the list to choose from

You are right, it works this way. It is not obvious that one can type in a new group, it seems only possible to select one from the list. It might help to change message to:

I have added instructions to use purging and it works well in English. In Greek Wikipedia purging opens an additional tab in the browser and we are left with the same page opened twice (one updated, one not). Purging code needs an update in Greek Wikipedia. Having this settled, the case is closed.

T139893: In our education program we have, since this July, lost an automation in helping new editors contribute, as every new user now has to purge his main sandbox to see the changes in his list of sandboxed articles. 200 people have been taught to use these sandboxes so far, some make heavy use of the multi-sandbox functionality and our new education program is about to begin. Single click purging would help.

The solution can be as simple as trying to detect if we are trying to put the citation just after a bullet. A bullet does not ever need a referencce after itself. As we only need this functionality for bulleted sections for bibliography, this seems to me as an optimal solution. - We can also give it as a help hint and that will be all needed.
