I could log in again after checking "Keep me logged in". However, it should also work without checking that box and I think that box was previously checked (so I used to log in with that) but wasn't anymore.

The problem still exists with 102.3.0esr. The TOC is not readable, this should be fixed asap, albeit I don't know how many users are affected.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T310893: Deployed table of contents (TOC) in sidebar differs from tested version of Desktop Improvements: the line height is too small with font-size 24 in Firefox.

Don't have that. But here's how it looks like when I change the Firefox preferences to Font size 16 where it used to be size 24:

fontsize.png (1×286 px, 77 KB)

like in:

(here's mine)

Screen Shot 2022-08-30 at 7.28.25 AM.png (970×1 px, 100 KB)

So the issue seems to occur only with a certain font-size (if it's supposed to look like in my screenshot). I thought the font-size 24 was the default but maybe it isn't or it's only the default for some configuration. Whether or not it's the default doesn't matter much as it should work with all reasonable font-size configs.

It happens with all widths and zoom levels that I tried with (earlier Firefox than 102) and also when I add ?safemode=1 to the url. Restarting the browser didn't help. I never had this problem until 22 July and it's very annoying as it hides parts of all articles. What did you change on 21/22 July?

No, wouldn't know which page would be more relevant than a VillagePump discussion, but after all it's in English Wikipedia's code so thought it would best go here. Also I'm not that worried about this issue, it simply should get fixed asap but it isn't particularly important or annoying to me personally. I wondered why nobody solved this yet and searched for discussions about it but found none.

This has been authored in 2014 and has still not been implemented in 2022 even though it would be simple to show this information at least in a simple way. I'd just like to add that one could implement this by adding a category trees browser instead of a plain list of wikilinked categories.

Fair point and that's why I only raised this in a comment at that task. Most likely, it depends on some substantial core changes implemented first. But still this could become a Global Watchlist -only or -first feature instead of getting built into the current main Watchlist.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T298918: Enable the user to hide (or show) the timestamps on the left.

It's a clear and common use case. It's so simple and quick to just hide a div which is why even a relatively small advantage of this would make it worth. Once they have been hidden one could show day-headers, just like on the English Wikipedia. I'm not sure why it wasn't built like this in the first place: why put timestamps on the left without any option to change that instead of having a header per day (which people are used to, makes a lot of sense, and is the well-tested approach)?

Prototyperspective added a comment to T298918: Enable the user to hide (or show) the timestamps on the left.

Very useful info but I would disagree if you're saying that custom common.css would be a solution to this:
it should be configurable on the GlobalWatchlist page. Meaning somewhere at the top of the page you have a small gear icon where you can find settings where there is a tab, e.g. "UI", to customize the UI with a few, clear options, including a checkbox for "show timestamps". This option could use this css class or just hide the div the timestamp is contained in. Wasn't it decided that VueJs will be used in the future? In that case it would be even simpler to toggle this.

Prototyperspective added a comment to T176668: Make MediaWiki a featured project for new developers.

Okay Clump managed to actually address my reasons. He stated that "they are all mediawiki projects".
That is false in that they are not the MediaWiki software.

The only question I ignored is whether I developed MediaWiki so far. It's irrelevant. As I already stated even if it was the hardest thing in the world it should still be on that page because it's about MediaWiki development. Currently that page doesn't even list a MediaWiki extension. In contrast, you keep ignoring all my points and don't address them. These include the context of the link and the title/purpose of the page. New MediaWiki developers requires MediaWiki development.

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/New_Developers says "This page is a simple and guided landing page for new Wikimedia developers."

It's good to have this discussion and I think it's moving closer to reasons. However, I still can't see reasons for why MediaWiki shouldn't be there. I repeat what I have said before:

Well fine, that's your opinion. Apparently you'd like to have volunteers to not develop MediaWiki. Is MediaWiki not important software to you? I'd like to understand why you oppose this and also think that it's necessary to provide a reason for closing this.

Prototyperspective reopened T176668: Make MediaWiki a featured project for new developers as "Open".

Reopened: it makes absolutely no sense to not even mention MediaWiki even though it's the core, main Wikipedia/Wikimedia project and has a large backlog of open issues (even utterly basic ones like a working Watchlist) and a severe lack of new developers.

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.
