<s>Sorry, no. It is correct that people are notified if their contribution was reverted.

Matthiasb added a comment to T148274: Implement a convenient way to link to ISBNs without magic links.

German Wikipedia:

  • TL;DR Use template for ISBN, use interwiki format for both RFC and PMID by default.

Matthiasb added a comment to T185672: Content translation tool: won't load formerly saved drafts.

I tried to investigate further. Translation drafts recently created are reloaded properly but the issue occurs for all my drafts created more than about three months ago.

This might be the same issue reported in T184042.

Matthiasb added a comment to T145604: [RfC] Future of magic links.

The explanation is needed because otherwise the feature is unused or people make bad markup for things that don't have the feature.

I think between all bad ideas which were discussed the MediaWiki development, removing magic links and especially ISBN is one of the worst. I do not consent with MZMcBride when he talks about confusion under editors because of the ISBN is suddenly linked. Editors and especially new editors are happy that this happens.

But save could also be something in the bank, or a thing that must do after earthquake/flood/tsunami...

Matthiasb added a comment to T139033: Re-label the "Save" (or "Publish") button to use "Publish page" when creating and "Publish changes" when modifying an existing page.

As a user and sysop on Wikinews I am protesting against this change as in most if not all that language versions the term "publish" (or its equivalents in other languages) is used for the one special edit when an article is considered ready, well after it was proofread, doublechecked and reviewed, when it usually get halfprotected and is added to the main page and declared to never again modified anymore. The change would add confusion to the redaction processes in Wikinews.

That's nonsense. Speaking as one of the authors of the page that you quote, it does not apply to this situation at all.

This has to be deactivated for the German Wikipedia ASAP (and never should have been activated) since the German WP does have editoral rules with which this tool does not comply, namely w:de:Wikipedia:Themenring. Why you never ask before you invent such a tool (which in measures of sense does not deliver any useful content as well)

Matthiasb added a comment to T64338: TemplateData: Be able to specify templates that go with this template (e.g. "openedBy", "closedBy") for multi-part templates.

Deprecating this won't do good. Such templates are state of the art in list article editing, are used in most English Wikipedia articles in the references in which <references/> or <references>... </references> is replaced by templates for a couple of years.
