Quiddity added a comment to T130671: Hovercards should show for disambiguation pages.

Sidenote:

  • All links to disambiguation pages should automatically have class="mw-disambig"
  • Therefore it should be possible to special-case these for Page Previews, in some way, if desired.
  • Also: Some wikis have a gadget to change the color of these links. On Enwiki, that is "Display links to disambiguation pages in orange" in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets - I recommend it!

Quiddity added a comment to T152676: Simple tree query visualization.
  1. Lastly, I'd suggest adding another "tree" example at the GUI, for the specific example given in the description here. That will probably be a simpler example, for non-technical people to adapt/reuse.
  2. Specifically http://tools.wmflabs.org/wikidata-todo/tree.html?q=Q1785783&rp=361&lang=en&method=list&depth=4
  3. (I have this similar example bookmarked https://tools.wmflabs.org/wikidata-todo/tree.html?rp=279&method=list&q=8261 and I hope to be able to adapt that, based on the one above once it's converted. :-)

I don't fully understand why you prefer this over the current implementation.
Could you please elaborate on this?

(1) Checking the page matches the current situation:
It might be good to go through that page, updating it based on the currently in-use extensions.
E.g. I see Extension:UserMerge is listed in the "Key extensions" section, whereas it should be in the "MediaWiki extensions deployed by WMF" section.
I'm not sure where there's a canonical list of "currently installed extensions"?

@Kaartic: I think navigation popups also strips everything in <small> tags, so that takes care of the audio file link and the "German:" label. Here's a screenshot of how it renders in navigation popups:

It does output "( ; ; " as I feared, so adding nopopups to $wgExtractsRemoveClasses probably wouldn't be a good solution. The ideal solution, IMO, would be to have HoverCards and the apps strip out everything inside parenthetical phrases and also anything with class nopopups or noexerpts or inside <small> tags, but it seems there is no clear path to doing that. I think I'm going to change this task back to its original title and description so that it can move forward.

Quiddity added a comment to T91344: Identify specific parenthetical elements to exclude from Hovercards.

As TheDJ wrote in the first comment, and as I wrote elsewhere (many times), we really want to retain some of the parenthetical data. There is some agreement that IPA/pronunciation can probably be excluded, but other details that appear in brackets in the first few sentences can be very important.

Quiddity added a comment to T155539: WikiProject recommender service.

See also T160232: Suggestions for WikiProjects to join, a community-wishlist proposal - possibly that should be a parent task to this, or similar?

Quiddity updated subscribers of T120962: Add links to corresponding classes on doc.wikimedia.org to Manual pages on mw.org.

I've added an example in the description (examples always help!). But I'm not sure if this is still open or not?

Quiddity added a comment to T164442: Page edits don't trigger notifications if an earlier page edit was minor.

I am watching a page. Someone makes a minor edit to the page. It shows up in my watchlist, but (correctly) does not light up the toolbar, nor does it generate an email. Then the same person makes a non-minor edit to the same page. It correctly shows up in my watchlist, and incorrectly does not light up the toolbar (nor does it send email). Additional non-minor edits continue to not generate notifications.
