Hesitantly resolving. Re-open if you want to work on it.
I've [https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_Technical_Talks&diff=3374139&oldid=3351106&diffmode=source added] a few of the links that were still missing, into that page.
Some progress via Wikimedia Space features, e.g.

These were part of my notes that I made for myself, during the meetup:
Andre Costa: Welcome! Glad to see many familiar faces, but also many newcomers. Wikimania is the culmination of a year long effort by many volunteers, WMF, and WMSE. Happy hacking!
@PlavorSeol There are many many thousands of things that someone might not know (or might not remember at any given time, or might not be able to find the documentation for). Please try to phrase your concerns with good faith in mind. This was an unnecessarily aggressive way to state your concerns and reminder. Mistakes happen, we're all just humans.

Done and done. And thanks for yet more clear instructions! :)
Done and done.

(Just moving tag to parent task.)
I've added it to Tech News with this wording (link). Please tweak that within the next 24 hours, if needed, before the issue is frozen for translation. Thanks. https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Tech/News/2019/33&diff=19274057&oldid=19273741&diffmode=source
Hmm, I had heard about those, but assumed they were properly setup for privacy. Sigh.
@TheDJ a while ago you working on a related script for this, which would obviously (!) have respected privacy. Maybe you could help advise on a replacement, for these other wikis?

Just to mention it: I have a user script, that does (among other things) offer to remind you of an article, storing everything locally: [...]
Sidenote: There's a prototype gadget on Enwiki by TheDJ that enables sticky table headers. I've been using and loving it for a couple of years.
+1 to love it. +1 to printing suggestion.
Done. You're welcome. ;p

All those recommendations just say "do a hard refresh". Which I already established works! (;P) But then the problem comes back.
(Ok, admittedly they also say "clear your cookies". I'll try that if/when it happens again.)

Can you reset it again for me?

@Trizek-WMF Re: Tech/News -- Is this is a significant enough bug that it deserves a mention? AFAICT it doesn't impact the ability to read notifications or do any editing work, it's just a minor confusion/annoyance that will be fixed very soon. I'd suggest not including it.
However, if you do strongly believe it should be added, how would you like the mention to be phrased? I would guess at something like:
"Problems: There is a bug with the color of the New Notifications indicators. The colors do not stay grey once you have opened the new Notifications. This is being worked on."

If we go with the brighter purple, it would be easy (and within our power) to change that on Meta, right?
+1 to the brighter purple.
-1 to the bright blue, because Tech/News isn't a purely WMF endeavor so I don't think using those colors would be appropriate.
Yeah, the lavender (#6C71C4), and maybe also the pale yellow (#eee8d5) banner from the top of individual editions, are the only colors I'd potentially associate with it.
