@Sascha: Lexemes don't use the monolingual text list of languages, so adding these for monolingual text won't make them available for lexemes.

For the thing I'm trying to do, I'm interested in knowing when labels, lemmas, forms and senses have been saved or when the editing of them has been cancelled (since it re-renders them when leaving the edit interface). A single generic hook would work for me, so would multiple more specific hooks.

Is there any evidence of a link between protected Wikipedia pages and vandalism in Wikidata? The sample of edits I looked at showed no correlation (I checked 10 items vandalised by IPs from Spanish-speaking countries and 9 of them were not protected on the Spanish Wikipedia). That's a very small sample, but I'm not aware of any other data.

@Bluepossum Based on your edits, it seems like you are trying to add entries for words, like in Wiktionary. If so, you want to add lexemes not items (items represent concepts, not words). The page for adding new lexemes is https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:NewLexeme. This page is not yet very visible, probably because lexeme support is still very new and missing key features. After you enter Gamilaraay in the language field, you will need to select "mis" from the field which appears above it. It's not yet possible to link lexemes to their translations, so you won't be able to link the Gamilaraay word "buruma" to the English word "dog" or to the item Q144 yet.

I use .wb-deprecated { background-color: mistyrose } (and .wb-preferred { background-color: lavender } for preferred) in my common.css for this. It works pretty well for me, except that the page has to be reloaded after editing ranks to update the classes. However I don't think changing the background colour on its own would be enough as a general solution, because it doesn't tell anyone why the background colour is different or what it means.

Nikki added a comment to T197161: Gather information on users of wb_terms replicas on WMF cloud infrastructure.

XTools uses wb_terms to report if a page is missing a label and description on Wikidata for the corresponding language. Performance is paramount so if SPARQL is indeed that slow (T197161#4302203) I don't think it would be an option for XTools. If we can efficiently query for it on the replicas via some other table(s) this is perfectly fine for us :)

Nikki added a comment to T197161: Gather information on users of wb_terms replicas on WMF cloud infrastructure.

I don't have any tools but I have used the wb_terms table in Quarry a number of times. I am usually trying to select all terms for a particular language, all terms which match a particular regex or to count how many terms there are. Things like finding labels containing disambiguation information, finding descriptions written like sentences, finding terms containing HTML entities, finding labels which have namespace prefixes when they shouldn't or vice versa, finding misspelt words, listing the most common descriptions for a language...

Nikki added a comment to T185895: With ?uselang=invalid, Wikidata logo links to Main_page instead of Wikidata:Main_page.

Valid language codes have essentially the same problem, except they link to the translated version of "Main Page", e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/?uselang=kl, https://www.wikidata.org/?uselang=gn and https://www.wikidata.org/?uselang=gv all point to non-existent pages. The only ones which work are where we've created MediaWiki:Mainpage/xx.

Nikki added a comment to T193607: Link lexemes in different languages.

I think doing this with statements would be silly. We just solved the situation where the nth Wiktionary page for the same spelling required (n-1) pages to be updated with new interwiki links. Linking all identically spelt forms with other identically spelt forms via statements would recreate it again with the data in Wikidata.

Nikki added a comment to T175525: When editing a statement, unedited entity input fields are marked unrecognized once unfocused.

It also happens if you click "add reference" for the statement without first clicking "edit", even though the property selector is focused. I'm not sure whether the main value field gets focused briefly while it renders, my eyes aren't that fast.

Nikki added a comment to T59665: editing data values using server-side parser/validation will disable "save" button until server responds.

I'm really disappointed to see that this was declined. I find this behaviour infuriating and I've developed a habit of hammering the enter key around 5 times when I want to save a statement because it's so slow and unresponsive.

I got NaN for the distance recently too, with something similar to this query (only includes the affected items, to make it faster).
