PrimeHunter added a comment to T203782: Special:Log has incorrect date 0000-00-00 as prefilled value, turns into -0001-11-30.

It works for me in Firefox, Edge and Chrome. I get the reported bug in IE11. When the date field changes to -0001-11-30 I get logs from before 2017-11-30, e.g at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Log?type=&user=PrimeHunter&page=&wpdate=0000-00-00&tagfilter=

PrimeHunter added a comment to T189860: Redirect link in Special:What_links_here should link to original page and not target page.

I called it annoying and pointless before knowing the purpose was to enable redirect=no. Sorry about that.
I'm unsure what it means when it's both said the new version will be backwards compatible and it will be html. Will customized messages be able to use wikitext like previously? If yes then all sounds fine. If no then the previous customized functionality may be hard or impossible to restore. It used features like namespace-dependent behaviour and url encoding of the page name. MediaWiki messages should allow wikitext as much as possible. Wikisyntax can link with redirect=no by using a url instead of a wikilink, e.g.:
<span class="plainlinks">[{{fullurl:$1|redirect=no}} $1]</span>

PrimeHunter reopened T189860: Redirect link in Special:What_links_here should link to original page and not target page as "Open".

Please revert the current implementation of this change. It breaks the message in all wikis which have customized it to use the page name to add other useful links on WhatLinksHere. See e.g.:

PrimeHunter added a comment to T141003: "Help" on the search page for many WMF wikis points to the wrong place.

The target of the Help link is determined by MediaWiki:Search-helppage. I don't know where to change the default for Wikimedia wikis but changing it from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Searching to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:CirrusSearch would be good.
There is no global language preference so users are directed to the English version unless they have set another language at mediawiki.org, and I guess few have. Maybe unregistered users (and even registered?) at https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Search should automatically get a link to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:CirrusSearch/it, and so on for other languages and help links, but that may be beyond this task.
