Roy17 added a comment to T142082: Add another "Add statement" button on top to ensure consistent position.

I have not declined it yet because there clearly is an issue we need to solve. I just object to the proposed solution.
My objection is that just adding another button clutters the user interface more (while we've been trying to clean it up) and if it is at the top it will encourage newcomers to not look at existing statements before adding one.

Roy17 added a comment to T220474: UploadWizard requires description at least 5 characters long, does not work well in languages like Japanese or Korean.

I realised this dumb filter could be circumvented by inserting whitespaces. For example, 陳大明 is not allowed but 陳 大 明 is ok. I'm just gonna bypass it this way if I have to.

You should probably write a project page/documentation that explains what "#suggestededit-add 1.0" in the summary means, maybe at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Suggestededit-add_1.0 or https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:App for example, and link to it in the summary.

Roy17 added a comment to T220474: UploadWizard requires description at least 5 characters long, does not work well in languages like Japanese or Korean.

In languages that use ideograms, e.g. Chinese and Japanese, and Korean with its unique alphabet, five characters are often more than enough. For example, I often upload closeups, which serve as nothing but merely portraits. The context becomes irrelevant since the photos zoom in on them. I want to be as concise as possible so I write down only their names as descriptions.

Roy17 added a comment to T213341: Don't allow structured data captions/statements on "File" pages which are just redirects.

So the tentative solution as implemented is to hide the input field for redirects? But when the redirect link is malformed, it would show up. Perhaps the input field should be hidden for all pages without a file.

In the past few months I used CT to convert zhwp articles for around 100 times. I remember there were occasions that CT showed a banner on the top right hand corner, warning me that the translation would activate a certain filter on YUEWP.
