Mathglot added a comment to T307753: Talk pages of 'noindex' articles should also be 'noindex'.

I don't think this is a good idea, and why would something like this apply to "articles" only? Are you asking that something determine if the first noindexed space is a "content" space - or is this something you only want for projects that use "articles"?

Not sure how to properly link related tickets, but Izno mentioned T53736 ("Consider changing wikipage redirects to be proper HTTP redirects"), in the context of the discussion at WP:VPT (at @21:05, 7 May).

It's happening already, which is why I created this ticket in the first place, to avoid that. But I think that a Phab ticket is not the right venue to have a debate about pros & cons of a topic, so can you contribute your thoughts at the VPT thread? Thanks.

TheDJ, are you okay with the Talk page being indexed, when the article page is not indexed? Don't you think that hurts searcher/readers who are looking to be informed about a given topic, only to find a WP Talk page, and no article? That's the only point of this ticket; it is not to prevent Talk pages from being indexed, but only to prevent a Talk page from being the *only* page that is indexed.

Hi, please note that the link in "Go to the top" in articles or pages without other language versions should not be there. It's confusing someone. Thanks

Is this ready for use? I tried four tests, got great results for three, but one problem for an url-encoded, double-quoted, two-word query (test #4).

Mathglot added a comment to T287206: Add link to add interwiki links back to the sidebar.

A question: is this related to why some languages (en, no, etc.) display the links by default, and others (fr) don't? Or is that just an option that the French have opted out of? My recollection is, that fr-wiki used to display them as well, but my memory may be off.

Mathglot added a comment to T287553: The 'live edits' stat in ec tool is broken..

Oh, thanks; you're right, it is confusing. Could we add a little question mark-in-circle icon next to the caption or the value, with a tooltip 'What is this?' and link it to that link you just posted?

Yes, I meant only the top ten, or however many in those "top" listings by edit count, or byte count.

Mathglot added a comment to T259014: Protect the reverted edits feature from abuse.

Is the tag meant to remember the fact that someone clicked a particular button, or that the content changed in a particular way? It seems to me it does the former, when possibly it should do the latter, and the disconnect between the two opens the gate for vandalism and/or misunderstanding.

Mathglot added a comment to T179259: Visual Editor removing whitespace from infoboxes by default.

Besides the annoyance of the bug itself, it seems to me that it drafts wikitext editors into involuntary servitude as housekeepers to sweep up after the actions of good-faith VE editors trying to improve an article, who are thwarted by the actions of a tool through no fault of their own, and who are prevented from carrying out a workaround by the tool. To me, this is the greater problem.

While this would be easy to implement for any specific language (e.g. only for English), keep in mind that citation templates are translated to 200+ languages. When this task was filed, we had no way to know that e.g. "nazwisko" in Polish is equivalent to "last" in English. ...

Your example is an editor that used Google Translate, so I don't think that's very convincing.
