Nemo_bis added a comment to T187791: Strip .pdf from arxiv identifiers before adding them.

I'm not sure if https://github.com/dissemin/oabot/commit/5361bf122c27ac6220fc113e1a3767fe7773f62b has been deployed already when this bug has been observed.

Nemo_bis closed T166283: Keyboard shortcuts as Resolved.

I'm happy with the current shortcuts for the main buttons. There are two main ways I'm currently "forced" to use the mouse:

  • a lot of text and assorted clutter has been added on top of the screen, so that the preview of the PDF is often below the fold and I'd need to scroll (this discourages people from checking the PDFs they're adding, should be fixed);
  • when the edit fails, there is one button at the centre of the screen, quite far from the position of the other buttons: but sometimes I click it to proceed, sometimes I go back to check the page manually, so I'm not yet sure what shortcuts are most needed.

These issues should be filed separately.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T166282: Add "undo" button.

I would decline this. There's a link to the user page, which I regularly use to reach the contributions and the undo button. Alternatively, one can go back to the previous page, click the title and go to the history. It's standard wiki editing, we don't need to rebuild MediaWiki core in python.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T178979: OABot error: 'No edit was made' (timeout or edit conflict?).

This is "by design". Suggestions are kept in a cache and can get stale. Usually OAbot runs rather short of suggestions, so it's currently skewed towards giving a bit more rather than less.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T20562: Indicate in output whether an interwiki link is marked local.

I disagree that this is a solution for that. If you feel an interwiki link should be an external link, ask for the interwiki prefix to be removed from the interwiki map.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T191405: Mark interwiki links as external links when they fall outside the WMF family.

This request is a bit too much Wikimedia-centric. The idea of the interwiki map is to hold together all the MediaWiki wikis in an collaborative division of labour (http://meatballwiki.org/wiki/InterWiki ). Wikimedia wikis might decide that they no longer care about integrating with non-Wikimedia wikis, but for most wikis the fact that an interwiki is not local makes very little difference. It's also a two-way street: do we prefer non-Wikimedia wikis to refer to Wikipedia articles, Wiktionary lemmas etc. as if they were local, or do we want to encourage forking?

Nemo_bis added a comment to T189495: Usability review to become an integral part of MW/extension development.

Andre is right in stressing that people have wildly divergent views of usability. For instance, for me anything that requires JavaScript is less usable than a pure HTML solution, yet some devs keep adding heavy JavaScript frills on top of MediaWiki special pages in the name of usability. So, it's important to pick objective criteria.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T188577: Add a config setting making all Flow boards read-only.

The original task description doesn't follow How to report a bug , in that it doesn't describe a problem or goal but only a specific proposed solution.

Nemo_bis added a comment to T186463: Uninstall Flow from Commons.

The comment posted on the village pump doesn't reflect Wikimedia best practices, in particular where it suggests that once an extension is installed we commit to keep it forever because otherwise the logs would not look pretty. The real policy is that we install things when they pass some strict requirements and we uninstall them when they do more harm than good, otherwise our technical debt and interface clutter would always go up.

Nemo_bis updated subscribers of T188806: create a Flow uninstall script.

If I understand correctly, the summary is something like "Create a maintenance script that lets a wiki be in a clean state after Flow uninstallation". @DannyH raised the concern that Flow leaves wikis dirty.

The (public) wikis where at least one Flow topic exists are:

for db in $( echo "select dbname from wiki" | sql meta ); do echo $db ; echo "select count(page_id) from page where page_namespace=2600" | sql $db ; done
