RoySmith added a comment to T248796: MobileFormatter doesn't run on complex pages and gives no feedback to editors creating confusion.

@Jdlrobson I'm sorry, I didn't realize this was waiting on me for a response. I'm not entirely sure what to tell you. My involvement here was mostly noticing somebody else describing the problem on Village Pump and doing some initial troubleshooting.

RoySmith added a comment to T284920: Remove "thumb size" preference.

My only concern here is that showing thumbnails in a larger size might be valuable for vision-impaired users. At the other end of the spectrum, showing them in a smaller size might be valuable to people on exceptionally slow links and/or small screen sizes such as wearable devices.

RoySmith added a comment to T279141: Discussion tools source mode should display navigation popups when enabled.

Firing wikipage.content may however cause new issues as well. As far as I know, currently wikipage.content is always fired with the one and only content block on the page (although the documentation doesn’t state this). If it’s fired with the preview, this expectation is broken and this may cause undefined behavior regarding the rest of the page (as scripts may consider it to be removed from the DOM tree).

I agree with @DED in their May 24, 2020 comment. I stumbled upon this while exploring the dumps. Their estimate of half the data being incorrect seems accurate. As such, I would suggest that this dump is worthless and should be eliminated. I can't imagine anybody making use of this in its current form. Producing it is a waste of machine resources, but worse than that, it's a time sink for people like me who are trying to understand the dumps.

RoySmith added a comment to T97936: Allow user to switch cite template in limited circumstances.

From an editor point of view, it's very much not a bad idea. We have broken cite templates all over the place because the automated tool incorrectly generates "cite web". The only way to fix them now is to delete the reference and create a new one manually. An automated process, even if it's "fundamentally lossy" would be a big help, because deleting the existing one and starting over is also "fundamentally lossy".

OK, I've finally found a solution. You can configure tmux to map C-p to the up-arrow escape sequence, which works around docker eating the C-p. It's hacky and duct-tapey, but it works. Still, fie on docker for not providing a way to configure/disable this behavior.

RoySmith added a comment to T255179: Session failures ("invalid CSRF token") preventing edits, login, logout, etc due to kask outage.

As an external observer, I'm fearful of "log everyone out". This will cause a spike in traffic to the authentication infrastructure as everybody logs back in again. Which, of course, was the root cause of this problem to begin with. Is there some way to do a rolling logout, killing say, 1% of the sessions per hour?

Oddly enough, I was able to edit logged out in an incognito window.

This is happening on enwiki as well. I'm also unable to logout! I tried Special:Logout, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

RoySmith added a comment to T200703: Special:RandomInCategory does not return all pages with equal probability.

I originally got here when I opened {T230700: Special:RandomInCategory does not return all pages with equal probability} a while ago. I notice that my original example from T230700 was working through AfC work queues, and so is the example given by Ahecht, above. Makes me think that the AfC use case may be different from most other things happening on the wiki. I'm wondering if this could be solved by occasionally re-populating page_random? I could see a couple of possible variations on this.
