SebastianHelm added a comment to T78424: P4. Spike - Figure out causes of mention notification not being sent (missing pings).

Thank you very much for your diligent look into this and the great explanation. That explains my observations.

SebastianHelm reopened T78424: P4. Spike - Figure out causes of mention notification not being sent (missing pings) as "Open".

Sadly, it seems this is still happening. It just happened twice at [[w:en:User_talk:Eteethan#Why_remove_tag.2C_instead_of_using_a_template.3F]].

SebastianHelm reopened T122292: It should be apparent when a link on a page redirects back to the same page as "Open".

While it is of course true that "article exists as a redirect != article does not exist", it does not logically follow that this request is "invalid". In fact, this request addresses a real existing problem, which is, as @Alsee writes, "confusing to the point of upsetting" and therefore merits consideration.

SebastianHelm added a comment to T54564: Allow sitelinks to redirect pages to fix the 'Bonnie and Clyde problem'.

I started a separate room for discussion of @Izno's alternate solution: Z276.

SebastianHelm added a comment to T54564: Allow sitelinks to redirect pages to fix the 'Bonnie and Clyde problem'.

From Izno's message above it seems that we all agree that it's an issue, but we may not agree on the specific solution. So it may be appropriate to change the title simply to "Bonnie and Clyde problem".

SebastianHelm added a comment to T54564: Allow sitelinks to redirect pages to fix the 'Bonnie and Clyde problem'.

I am setting the priority to "Normal" because, as @Tgr said, with many echoing the sentiment:
"It breaks one of the most fundamental functions of the wiki software, that a reader can easily find more information on the topic in a different language. With Wikidata, subjective editorial decisions about article scope [...] break the navigation between languages. [...]".

SebastianHelm triaged T72329: Message notifications not working as High priority.

This has high priority because mention notification is being used by many people, and if one can not rely on it, it becomes utterly useless (or worse than that for those people who do rely on it). I just experienced this problem for the third time at [[:en:User_talk:Chris_the_speller#The_page_.22Resident_Magistrate.22_has_been_moved_to_.22Resident_magistrate.22]].

SebastianHelm added a comment to T87534: Change de.wikivoyage default setting of Floated table of contents.

Since this has been "floating" here since August, I think it may be helpful as a motivation to translate the gist of the German discussion:

SebastianHelm added a comment to T49313: Disable "You have new messages" for anonymous users after 30 days (as IPs often are dynamic).

I am afraid this request is a waste of time, and can even backfire.
