There is now https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-LargerGallery.js on Commons. But I don't know for sure if the task is fulfilled with that.

Perhelion added a comment to T6714: Epic: Increasing the length of the edit summary.

The current implementation is somewhat of awful. The long size should be depending on what (and maybe how) is something inserted. The edit summary is, in general, a short notice what was done. Some people c&p they fully edit text in there what should definitely never the goal of this feature. Or also classic Uploads got the full file-page as the summary.

I reopened the task, as this is not an expectable behavior of the API (and it is also not SVG related). If we have a query list with a bunch of file titles, the whole query fails, and then we must retry the query again and again until we have all errors? There is no other method to test the imageinfo query is valid or not.

Note: I at least OPPOSE any mentions of "<>" as that really conflicts with SyntaxHighlight , NO MORE Geshi or Pygments hinting here

Here some examples how it could look like (after suggestions by @PerfektesChaos):


The other suggestions are a overlay combination with the pencil.

I'm also unable to reproduce. @Jdx have you tested other browsers (or other systems)? Have you switched ALL other gadgets off? Maybe this is a incompatibility between two gadgets. The hint from @zhuyifei1999 is also possible.

Perhelion updated subscribers of T117720: Remove use of jquery.tipsy from Wikimedia-maintained code.

As the on Commons:MediaWiki in time most active competent script user @Rillke is now inactive and he used $.tipsy widely on some gadgets, it needs a real documentation for replacement!? It is a bit annoying that gadgets get not working, for example https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-GlobalUsage.js
