Parkywiki added a comment to T5234: Extend edit-user-talk notification to include edits to subpages of a user's talk page.

@Aklapper If only I had the skills! Sadly I am only a Wikipedia user, not a developer, and must rely on the wonderful corps of technical helpers we have here. (It's all I can manage to actually get on Phabricator and get a vague sense of what's happening!) I appreciate that not everything can be a priority. Best.

6 or more years on and there's still seems to be no progress on ensuring that users receive an on-wiki notification if another user edits any of their user sub-pages. This seems such a simple and logical thing to address (as anyone can alter or vandalise any person's sub-page without them realising it) I'm wondering why nobody has picked this one up.

Parkywiki added a comment to T234450: Some Special:Contributions requests cause "Error: 0" from database or WMFTimeoutException.

I think this change is a really retrograde step, and I hope ways to return it can be found. It is only rarely that I need to change the 500 limit to 5000, but my goodness, when I do so it's so valuable. Having to copy and paste entries into Excel before I can work through a moderately large number of edits would be a real pain. I'd even be happy to enter a Captcha code or something similar if thousands of automated requests could potentially bring the system to its knees, so we can be sure that big searches are only done for a good reason and by a real person. Please find a way of returning this valuable feature.

May I ask what progress has been made since Jo Hammer was assigned this task in 2017 -they appear to have ceased all activity shortly afterwards? The task itself goes back to 2005.

Parkywiki added a comment to T187690: Copy-pasting section headings emits JS error and doesn't let you save.

Can I add that, following my report yesterday to the Village Pump (linked to by User:TheDJ above), on a completely different Windows 10 PC with Google Chrome, I encountered the identical freezing issue when switching from source editing to visual editor. At what I've always felt was the rather pointless stage of the user confirming they want to switch, the window froze up., But but this time had not moved, cut or copied any content whatsoever. I had simply spent forty minutes expanding Bulbophyllum trichorhachis on en.wiki, but have lost all detailed references and content I was inserting. I've rather lost confidence in switching whilst editing, and will now save and reopen in another editor until this issue is resolved. I appreciate its priority being raised.
