Thank you, @Esanders. That’s quite unpleasing, but because it’s documented, it means this ticket has to be closed, then.

Speravir added a comment to T320337: [M] Special:Search results should have a way to suppress thumbnails.

I consider this feature rather useless for text searches (other than the provided text snippet), but for file searches the thumbnail is essential and therefore present for years. So, in my opinion a different option for files would be needed, or for file searches the thumbnail is shown independently of a hopefully added preference.

Is there no way to add a setting for reverting this change in Special:Contributions or at least for an according script or scriptlet, so that user scripts can work, again (so that there is again one ul element per page)? I actually do not see a benefit of date headers on this page.

Speravir added a comment to T284921: Remove "auto-number headings" preference.

@daniel I do not know, how well the gadget is written, but would it be possible to rewrite it in a way that it inserts these data-something attributes as suggested by @stjn instead of the additional HTML elements it inserts now, and this for all users, hence not being a gadget anymore? And the central gadget itself would be converted into quite short CSS, so everyone who doesn’t has enabled it does not notice anything. The size of every page would be larger for everyone, though (but for us who use this feature it would be smaller); the question is, how much (perhaps: data-toc-no="", for each entry 15 characters including leading space char, but without the number, and data-sect-no="", all in all 16 chars).

Speravir added a comment to T255444: Regression: Sidebar "User uploads" link now missing from Commons user pages.

What did it supposedly link to? Could it be that someone considered this as duplicative? Because, in Vector I can on every user page find two links behind the “More” menu (which is in the sidebar for the other skins I think): one named “Uploads” with a link to Special:ListFiles/<username>, and one named “Contributions” linking to Special:Contributions/<username>. Because of this I never missed the line in the sidebar.

Speravir updated subscribers of T254177: Special:Upload reports that some valid PNG files have MIME type unknown/unknown.

I consider Special:Upload a hidden feature that only users use if they specifically want or need that for some reason and is thus less well-tested or cared for at this time.

Speravir added a comment to T254177: Special:Upload reports that some valid PNG files have MIME type unknown/unknown.

Could this be related to chunked uploads? The Upload Wizard does support them, the legacy upload form does not. I remember very dark that I had similar issues several years ago when my internet connection was quite slow, too. The issues went away from the moment I used chunked uploads (I use the script bigChunkedUpload.js, though).

Speravir added a comment to T253405: Some (recent?) uploads to Commons are not available on other wikis.

Info: I renamed File:Fioan Fiedler.jpg to File:Fiona Fiedler.jpg (typo fix). And I had noticed before that in :de:Fiona Fiedler a message box appeared on top informing about unflagged changes of a file or template. I did the flagging then – it was the file. By default unflagged changes are not visible to readers in dewiki.

I got this error message with a GIF file, File:Steam engine in action (half speed).gif, processed with GIMP (doubled animation time for every frame). As you can see this is very small. If this does matter: I got this error with the script BigChunkedUpload.

Speravir added a comment to T222994: Upload fails at Wikimedia Commons "Internal error: Server failed to store temporary file.".

I ran into the same issue when I tried to upload File:Healthy Pescetarian Meal.jpg. I did not use the Upload Wizard, though. I tried it with the script BigChunkedUpload. The file is so small that it was uploaded as one chunk, but could this nethertheless be the reason for the issue? I subsequently did successfully upload with the Special:Upload page which is not able to do chunked uploads. Note that there is another task with the same error message and chunked uploads, but this have been for bigger images: T89197.

A small "how to" replicate the problem:

Choose a random file – there is no comment for the current version (of course I assume that some comment exists).
Purge the file – the comment appears.
Press "reload" button in your browser – the comment disappears (I've noticed that sometimes the button has to be pressed twice).
