Samtar claimed T162235: enwiki file "Lock_icon_blue.gif" in sites CSS has to be switched to commons wiki.

I've recently changed this on simplewiki, so I'd be happy to go through the list and manually update them - I'm all for automation, but I think given there is only 66 being able to do them one by one and confirming the change worked correctly outweighs the benefits of doing it in one shot. I've requested temporary global editinterface so that I can make these non-controversial maintenance edits

@Sphilbrick This is a bug which the developers will fix, so you'll soon be able to view statistics for article titles with apostrophes in :)

Samtar placed T170173: Simulate API calls up for grabs.

After some kind prodding from the folks in IRC, I've managed to track down where this logic would need to be and having tried playing around with it on my MW install, it's out of my skill range. Others have echoed what Lego has said, so instead we should focus on improving the API responses.

Looking closer at the beta cluster (this section in particular) it appears it may not be suitable for development.

@Samwalton9 any thoughts? The beta cluster is apparently designed for this kinda stuff but we'd need to be a little more considerate - if we did have our own instance it would (hopefully!) be short lived and wouldn't take up too many resources and we could focus less on being considerate and more on getting to the root of the problem.
