MisterSynergy added a comment to T229644: RelatedArticles showing on all German and Russian Wikipedia due to incorrect configuration settings.

In this edit, a user at German Wikipedia complains that the feature is visible again when using the mobile skin (minerva), and I can confirm that this is actually the case. This became apparent after CSS code was removed from MediaWiki:Mobile.css which set display:none; for .read-more-container (the container which contained the tool output).

  • Is this intentional, i.e. should the feature be enabled in mobile view in German Wikipedia?
  • Has the feature been activated before the mis-configuration was deployed initially?

AFAIK, if a user moves a page in a Wikipedia project, the sitelink in the connected Wikidata item is *not* updated (1) if the user is locally blocked at Wikidata—as in this case—or (2) if the user does not exist locally at Wikidata.

MisterSynergy added a comment to T193728: Address concerns about perceived legal uncertainty of Wikidata .

If any of those happened (or had to happen), I’d be out here and I guess many other Wikidata editors would also discontinue their efforts. There is great support for CC0 in Wikidata, since anything else that required attribution would render it useless; large-scale purging would tear down so much content that we would basically have to start again from the beginning. We are 5.5 years into this project and many of us have spent thousands of hours of effort into it, based on the unchallenged assumption (by WMF) that Wikipedia imports as we are doing them are legally fine.

How would it render it useless? Or more useless than today? For some actors like OSM it is useless because they don't trust Wikidata claim that this data can legally be released under CC-0. For those who don't care about acting legally, any license will make the same effect.

MisterSynergy added a comment to T167989: Add “integer” constraint.

Not sure. At this point I don’t know of any situation where we need integer values with non-integer bounds. This is also based on the observation that in 3.8M claims of 99 different quantity properties with integer constraint deployed, the situation of non-integer bounds does not occur. If anyone can come up with such an example where bounds are properly used, it would be great and I would immediately re-evaluate my position. If not, I think we need only one constraint with integer requirement for both amount and lowerBound/upperBound.

According to mw:Wikibase/DataModel#Dates and times, there are already most requirements for timezone support contained in the data model. What prevents us from just activating it? Sure, there will be some GUI changes necessary to enable HH:MM:SS modifications, and to show a timezone selector, but it does not appear too complex to find something there. The highest precision should be seconds (precision=14) to my opinion, as already defined in the data model.

Due to T171263 this is maybe not the best moment to exactly implement what's written at Wikidata:Bots#Bot accounts, but on the long run this would be useful to have. According to the corresponding Grafana chart of the median lag (you need to select "median" from the legend manually), bots would not be allowed to edit at all since 2017-06-28, 21:30. At that time, the median lag suddenly rose from robust ~15 seconds to robust ~100 seconds, with only very little variation. The median lag did not even decrease when the stalest lag had caught up at around 21:30 on 2017-07-25.

How much are we sure that this problem was predominantly caused by the recently “high” edit rate (or undesired number of parallel bot runs) at Wikidata? At Wikidata we are trying to get edit rates down, but I am uncomfortable with the notion that Wikidata operates already at the edge of what’s technically possible. Recent activity might have been pretty high, but not that much that I would have expected problems of that impact.

MisterSynergy added a comment to T167521: Simplify access to properties that currently require traversing numerous items.

The lack of powerful means to traverse the Wikidata knowledge tree within Lua modules is in fact a problem for Wikidata as well, not only for module coders on Wikipedia side. {{#property:}}/{{#statement:}} parser functions and Module:Wikidata allow simple data retrieval from the connected item, but any lookup of items (as indicated by Jarekt) is very difficult. Users deal with this problem by adding all information they want to access from a client (e.g. in an infobox) directly to the connected item—even if it is utterly misplaced there (for instance country qualifiers to place of birth data in an item about a person).

I use an rss app on my smartphone to track changes on my watchlists.

It would thus be useful if there was an option to retrieve the feed with links to the mobile interface, so that it displays the mobile diff page as in mobile view.
