Pigsonthewing added a comment to T21906: Allow default alternate text for images to be provided on the file description page.

Then please explain why then in this thread, because that's what the English Wikipedia manual of style seem to suggest.

Pigsonthewing added a comment to T21906: Allow default alternate text for images to be provided on the file description page.

@Pigsonthewing Are you arguing that making sure that there absolutely is no alt-text is better than one which is easy to locally override and that only might be slightly off-topic?

Oct 22 2020, 7:52 PM · Multimedia, Accessibility, MediaWiki-File-management
Pigsonthewing added a comment to T21906: Allow default alternate text for images to be provided on the file description page.

There are good reasons for not having a default "alt" attribute for images; and for not using machine-generated values such as those copied from media legends or file descriptions. These are already referenced in part in T21906.

Pigsonthewing added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

@Pigsonthewing can you clarify what you mean here?

Pigsonthewing added a comment to T156433: Geoline/geoshape does not work with relations other than multipolygon/route/boundary.

Anyone is free to add to Wikimedia-Hackathon-2019 whatever they plan to work on themselves; no need to ask anyone else :)

Pigsonthewing added a comment to T220432: Clean up "easter egg" short URLs before extension goes live.

Do we really need to reserve 729,000 URLs for special use? Reserving 1-letter URLs makes sense, and maybe 2-letter, but 3-letter seems overly cautious, IMO.

As I've noted on the Meta talk page, a method should be found to set up memorable, 2- or 3-letter custom links for each Wikipedia (say /en for en.Wikipedia; /de for de.wp, /arz for arz.Wikipedia etc) and other projects.
