Prototyperspective added a comment to T283173: Trying to publish an uploaded file on WM Commons returns "Internal error: Server failed to publish temporary file".

I rendered a smaller version and the upload went through. I think that it was caused by the filesize. Please fix the error-message and please consider raising the filesize-limit.

This seems to be related: T279407
Do I need to rerender to be able to upload it? I'm asking because the rendering (with Kdenlive) takes a lot of time and in that case the error-message should say so.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T258417: Add "add table entry" and "edit row" for the wikitext editors as well as "edit with VisualEditor" functions to tables for simplyifing editing tables.

In that case declining, as users are free to use the VisualEditor instead of the WikiEditor if they want to use the VisualEditor table editing implementation instead of the WikiEditor table editing implementation, and as this is not feasible at all to implement.

In that case it's about both but mainly about WikiEditor. I don't know why and how many are using the 2017 Wikitext editor. If it's not a default wikitext editor it would be far less important to add this functionality to this editor - I changed the task's tag.

Thanks for clarifying. Not dealing with WikiEditor in this task. Completely different codebase and a separate issue.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T262848: Section transclusions are limited to 4 sections: 5th breaks the references (due to reaching the Post‐expand include size limit).

Afaik this has been a substantial problem for quite a few articles already and will probably become an issue for many other articles in the near and mid-term future, so I really think this is something that should be worked on: especially as this seems to be a major factor in server-loads. I think the solution would be to rerender articles on the server-side once an included template gets changed and the serve the prerendered page. Are there any tasks related to this?

@Aklapper Thanks! This worked. I changed the content to also use the {{dts}} template in the 2nd article.
However, imo there still remain two (sub)issues:

Prototyperspective added a comment to T262870: A data-type for datetimes for table columns to make them sortable by datetime.

@Aklapper Thanks, but this doesn't work. I tried with ! data-sort-type="date" | Launch Date in the table of "List of missions to Mars" linked above (sort descending). It also doesn't work with this table (it didn't sort at all and I already tried removing most rows so that all cells have the same datetime format of which I tried multiple).
Standard formats of datetimes, many of which can be found in many articles, which should all work with the sort-type (preferred ones highlighted):

Prototyperspective updated subscribers of T258382: Fix the display of tables on mobile (responsive web design: when the user taps on a table rotate the screen for a fullscreen view).

Thanks for the input and the related issue.
@TheDJ commented "4. Personally I do think that having some sort of 'make this table fullscreen' option is required. [...]" there.
I think my suggestion above would be the most effective implementation of such a fullscreen option in terms of eventual usefulness.
This fullscreen-rotate-screen option is already implemented in many apps including the YouTube app which rotates the screen for a fullscreen view.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T258421: Adding row categories/tags to tables that enable filtering displayed rows.

There can be multiple categories/tags for every column and there could be many configurable and suggested filter-presets.

This. A sane frontend UI for that (plus not sure what's needed when it comes to backend storage).

To me this sounds like you could add an additional column with that "category", and then you are able to sort the table rows by that column value.
