Quiddity added a comment to T46787: Allow excluding pages from the page links notifications.

I agree that there are many nice UX possibilities proposed here but as someone who might work on this with pretty limited time (or for any other developer interested in this), it would be really nice to see the phab task description updated with a consensus on exactly what to implement.

(I can't quickly find if/where that general rule is documented.)

Quiddity added a comment to T18691: RFC: Section header "share" link.

If the page is long, a reader would have to scroll all the way to the top to copy the link and remember the name of the section they wanted to share.

A radical proposal: Instead of a "share" link, have a "TOC" link that links to the relvant line in the TOC (rather like links from citations to where the citation lies in the body text).

Quiddity updated subscribers of T234957: Wikimedia Technical Conference 2019 Session: Developing in Mediawiki without breaking Gadgets.

Would it be useful to create some sort of inventory of gadgets (not necessarily names/URLs of the most used/important user scripts, but possibly an inventory of functionalities and workflows that editors use gadgets for)?

Very useful, and not primarily for interaction with MediaWiki changes (although that's useful as well). The increased discoverability of gadgets used by other communities would be a huge boon in itself.

@Pchelolo @EvanProdromou How complicated would it be to implement the aforementioned (T232379#5480718) deduplication feature, and is that within your team's area of responsibility?
These bugs are making the MassMessage system as a whole completely unreliable, and it's one of the main systems for cross-wiki communication for a multitude of groups.

The intent was more... somehow provide the usernames that people can potentially ping, perhaps giving specific circumstances/specializations. E.g. "Ping andre__ for questions about [...]". -- However, your idea would work as well, just in a slightly more fragmented way. :-)

Seems like we need a new deduplication flag, like deduplicate_unique that would make it ignore exactly the same job regardless of the timing. This, however, will make it impossible to send exactly the same message to the user.

Quiddity added a comment to T222360: Add new "button" for Wiki URL shortener in the menu in Wikipedia.

There's also a gadget at Frwiki: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-ShortenUrl.js
Which can be added to your global.js with

// ShortURL in the 'Tools' sections of sidebar
mw.loader.load('https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Gadget-ShortenUrl.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

Quiddity added a comment to T231954: Increase session length for OTRS ticket system.

Very good specific points, thank you for that information. With that in mind, and especially the missing 2FA, I suppose this proposal might be declinable.

Thanks, Herald! That was the one I wanted.

Quiddity added a comment to T201520: Create a global Talk page filter.
  1. Please update the documentation page at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:New_filters_for_edit_review/Advanced_filters to cover this new feature.
  2. How would you like the Tech News item to be phrased? I'm guessing something like:

The advanced version of the edit review pages (Recent Changes, Watchlist, and Related Changes) now include two new filters. These filters are for "All contents" and "All discussions" and will filter the view to just those namespaces, however they do not include pseudo talk pages such as discussions that are in the Project: namespace.

Please edit that, or write whatever you'd like it to say, including the link to the docs page (once updated). (All within the next ~20 hours, before the hard freeze for Tech News translations.)
Thanks!

Quiddity added a comment to T179183: Delete 24gb worth of unused files owned by tool.theoslittlebot.

I think this task is resolved now? Afaict the cleanup was done (per T179183#3716725 above), and the original bot no longer needs a new maintainer (because it has been turned off or is just inactive, per contribs).
