Hi. We have quite a lot of broken scripts on pl.wiki. I've fixed some gadgets yesterday.

We just had this problem on Polish Wikipedia. A mentor does not have time to answer questions anymore and wants to quit. He removed himself from the list of mentors. But the problem is that he still gets questions.

As a reference: Possibility to remove required params was explicitly blocked in T62358.

You mentioned removing templates so I assumed that would be part of the process of moving coordinates to MediaWiki. From a programmers stand point that's how I would do that 😉... Don't know how you would want to do that otherwise.
Also note that coordinates in the template influence not only the top bar, but also contents of an infobox. Not sure if that's what you meant by saying: "Sometimes the location of the coordinates is defined on multiple places on the page."... But I want to stress that this is not just display of coordinates. They are shown on maps as well.
You seem to have forgotten that the coordinates are NOT ONLY a simple link. On Polish Wikipedia we open up a map that shows placement of the object/POI that article describes.

So assuming you don't like the structure of this: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Manual:Database_layout/diagram/1.34.0&action=edit

Don't know about other wikis, but on Polish Wikipedia the ui admin is someone with technical knowledge and technical abilities. Sysop is someone doing moderator work. Which has some requirements of being active etc. We actually had a long debate befor ui admin that this should be something available for technical people that don't need to or don't have time to sit on RC etc.

Relatedly, we've talked a bit about how it might make more sense for the page title to be above the tabs (instead of below).
Sep 30 2020
Oh. Note that the area on the right side of title is already used by various icons and maps. Not sure how many wikis have such things but Polish Wikipedia have this for ages.
Looking at the article history of an article in German Wikipedia I realise it's got to be imported from English. I don't want to comb through the history to find the link to the English article, it's quicker to just click on the language link. But, uh, it's not there? Oh. I have to go to the article tab first.

Hi, Roan. I think a slightly longer version is a good idea 🙂.
Sep 7 2020
We don't have a separate tutorial or a page about updating articles. Are these blockers?
The Homepage suggests to users to read a page that explains what Wikipedia is and how it works. Any page is fine, as far as it is not cal for action (like https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomoc:Pierwsze_kroki does).

Tutorial (Q915263) -- this seems wrong. It links to a historical tutorial.
Manual of style (Q4994848): https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomoc:Styl_%E2%80%93_poradnik_dla_autor%C3%B3w. More or less... We don't have such a large compendium as enwiki, but should be enough for beginners.
This is all done:
- Translate the interface (on translatewiki.net, needs a specific account)
- Translate the documentation
- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Growth/Focus on help desk/Help panel (resource for newcomers)
- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Growth/Tools and subpages (resource for mentors and newcomers)
- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Growth/Communities/How to work with newcomers on help desks (resource for mentors)
- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Growth/Communities/How to introduce yourself as a mentor (resource for mentors)

The search bar looks better in this version, but the sidebar toggle looks awkward in this version. The toggle don't seem to be connected with the sidebar in any way. And also the icon ("<<") don't seem like something that you can naturally recognise as a menu thingy.

Just a note -- same happens on pl.wiki on Vector2/Timeless. Firefox 78.

Sorry. Almost immediately after posting I noticed that the problem is opened paragraph. And also inline template must be surrounded with a paragraph.
Jul 4 2020
Interface translation is done. Probably needs testing, but I finished all yesterday/today 🙂. Edit: just as a note - I just run the final mile. Did not want to suggest I did it all by myself 😊

User forks a script or gadget in own user space

Hi. There are still some false positives.
Jun 2 2020
Note: This task is about an issue that exists only in development (and maybe testing) environments but it doesn’t affect production websites. The issue is that when translating an article, user-defined categories are not saved properly, they are totally ignored.
Jun 1 2020
Nevermind. Seem to be a caching issue.
May 13 2020
That don't seem to be affected
Apr 19 2020
Yes, your assumption is correct -- I changed the refs in the translation tool.

Sorry, I thought that was universal. I guess "Advanced mode" setting is crucial here.

Not sure if its a duplicate. On my side the problem is different (I cannot load the translation, not save it).

I'm happy to say problems you describe don't exist 🙂. After a day of finding weird security bugs (in other companies) I'm happy to report this works as expected 😎.

I understand that position on adding properties, but normally when something is not standardized its kind of experimental. When it's experimental and can change the name can still be different etc... But that is different here. The property worked everywhere from ages. It will not change. It is already implemented. So there are simply no risks of change.
To my knowledge using SVG in background image is safe. At least in that script will not be executed in that context. So the browsers actually does the check for you. You can do weird things (like fa* tags for graphic filters), things that can be heavy for users, but not strictly unsafe. At least not to my knowledge.

If we allow forking these to user css/json/js pages, when merging back there could be edit conflicts considering another edit could have been merged and the user didn't pull. How would you suggest keeping a fork to user namespace be kept up to date, might need to keep track of diff changes - this gets complicated?
Nov 17 2019
I think what is needed is forking, not branching.

Hi. I just fixed my tool on toolforge, but... Am I correct to assume that actor_user is null only for anonymous actors (IP)?

BTW. Might be a good idea to also add a link to skip the diff and go directly to the contents of the article (if someone doesn't have time to review changes).

Original author of this request explicitly stated that "Wikimedia software does not allow external links; presumably for spam reasons; however, if the link is internal, it should be allowed (just as wikilinks are allowed)".

I see this differently. Note that I'm using regexp. So when I match "(.+)" I get a selection on a link with quotes around it so parentheses should match HTML/wikicode that contains the link. In other words - $1 should contain markup equivalent of [[blah]]. If that would be possible to do you would get following cases:
Edited to correct two things:

I'm saying this happens very often on many pages. It's just not happening every time.

This is caused by the fact that Resource Loader broken compatibility with old scripts (mostly because making order of custom scripts completely unpredictable). This is supposed to be fixed with Gadgets 2.0 also allowing creation of custom (user) gadgets. I'm not sure when is this coming and if it will deliver...
Jan 18 2016
OK, that seems to work now (also for new graphs), so probably temporary as you said.
