Strainu added a comment to T275147: Empty state for language button and menu.

Folks, I can't figure it out from the discussion, but does this solution consider:

  • users without CX enabled
  • the difference between items without wikidata items and with wikidata, but no IW?

Strainu reopened T127607: Fix canonical namespaces for rowiki as "Open".

@Stang you seem to have removed the Romanian versions (see the API call in the bug description) and now Proiect:Cod Wikipedia redirects to WikiProject:Cod Wikipedia and Cod:SIRUTA:10 sends to Code:SIRUTA:10. Could you please make sure the Romanian versions are the defaults and the English only alternatives? Thank you.

Strainu closed T305701: Special:Nearby shows no results on rowiki as Invalid.

It used to call the parser function. Apparently I broke that a while ago, while moving to maplink, likely because my unserstanding was that maplinks also add the coordinates to the database - something i can't find any docs about today.

Strainu added a comment to T301908: Drop support for Python 3.5.

I continue to believe we need to support a version at least a year after Cloud Services have moved away from it, as described in https://lists.wikimedia.org/hyperkitty/list/pywikibot@lists.wikimedia.org/message/BSTDB6JYJ74DE3BTNWND4BAROLIXJTW5/

That would mean mid-2023 if I understood correctly the latest news about the Debian upgrades.

If I follow this your proposal:

  1. two years after official support has ended (e.g. 7 years after launch) AND
  2. one year after Toolforge moved to a newer Python version. AND
  3. the percentage of users of a version goes under 5%
  1. The official support has ended Sept. 2020; two additional years will be Sept 2022. Dropping Python 3.5 is not planed for an earlier date.
  2. Toolforge migration has already started.
  3. The percentage of users is already below 0,3 % except for Toolforge but this will decrease rapidly if the Python base is changed.

I don't want to fight for a few weeks or months. Release Pywikibot 7 was also postponed for few months. But I want to promote a change as early as even possible but this is also a long term process so that it can be planned.

It's not immediately obvious to me why 1 is a problem if 2 isn't - they seem linked. What does "enough phrases" mean exactly? Intuitively, I would say that 2 or 3 links per article should be enough for the user to practice. You could then potentially reuse the same article such as this one for other users.

Strainu added a comment to T283985: Add Link: word substrings are turned into links.

As a mentor, I would recommend that you first try 3, as the number of links added per article seems a bit high at the moment, so removing some of them wouldn't be damaging. The patch should be applied as the second option, but only together with a documentation update to make the issues crystal clear. For now, we're far from that.

Strainu added a comment to T298579: Highlighting Popups settings menu icon shows screen reader text.

@Jdlrobson I was able to reproduce in Chrome 96 on windows, signed out for en.wp. It seems that this codes's way of building the close window HTML is different from other such examples in the code, such as the VE (add citation popup) and ULS settings. You can open any of those, replicate the classes you use and you'll still see the problem.

@FonAfon, have you checked the translations? It looks like an ALT text of the closing icon. It can happen to show up if the text is too long - I've seen it on the mobile site a while back and it was solved by shortening the ALT text.

  2. VE is showing exit warnings regardless of the state of the Warn me when I leave an edit page with unsaved changes setting within Special:Preferences.

Strainu added a comment to T294463: Leaving VE for another page doesn't trigger the exit confirmation.

OK, so I digged a bit, it seems when leaving the article (options 2,4,5 in the description) there is an option controlling the warning which in my case was not global. When exiting to the article itself, the VE warning is shown regardless of that setting. I believe the correct behavior is to always display the same confirmation window, which should be controlled by the user option. I updated the description accordingly.

On en.wp I also see the confirmation as in your screenshot, but I find it strange that you have the VE confirmation when exiting to the article (just like on ro.wp) and what looks like a browser confirmation for the rest - it still looks like these are separate code paths and it's unclear to me why.

I'll go even further than @Kudpung : most (8 out of 10) of these solutions are patches to the existing system, which the other side considers broken. What these people want is not to get and/or do work more effectively, by being able to patrol on mobile or receive echo notifications, but for the bad edits to *dissappear* from their watchlist so they have less patrolling work and implicitly more time for other activities on-wiki. Here is one of the feedbacks from pt.wp which resonates particularly well with what I am told when I try to calm down overzealous patrollers on ro.wp:

Strainu added a comment to T150618: Provide HD logos for all projects.

Unfortunately, adding the HD logos does not guarantee the blurriness will go away, see T274778

Strainu closed T216392: Remove bad P131 and description from Romanian monuments as Resolved.

I double checked all monuments not in Sibiu and this issue seems to have been resolved (at least the correct P131). There is a mess for that property, but this will be solved on-wiki.

Can you add a link to Add a link (haha) so external watchers can get the context?

Strainu added a comment to T281007: Maps rendering should not depend on user variable image settings (default width).

@TheDJ , thanks for the debugging. I think that if nobody will take on this bug in the near future, it should be mentioned in the documentation at least, to make sure others don't debug as much.

The issue reported here is a bigger issue - how to provide better notification to anon users and, specifically, to the anon users on mobile?

Strainu updated subscribers of T240889: Mobile IP editors not given any indication that they have new messages.

I second the community members who asked for the increase of priority. Mobile edits are on the rise and this bug blocks the normal workflow the communities use to communicate with anonymous users without providing a replacement. Since this seems to be in the Growth team, I'd like to see what @MMiller_WMF thinks. What's the grand plan for edits on mobile?

I did not find anything relevant in the wikitech-l archives. What other options do we have here to "unblurry" the logos?

I think it would be good to revisit this a bit, maybe see if things have changed in the last 9 years.

Strainu added a comment to T275653: Inline scrollbar Special:Homepage.

Correct, that's the step. I'm no UX specialist, but I believe that having an inner scrollbar AND a lot of wasted space below (the user still needs to scroll to read the right column) is not a good experience.

Strainu added a comment to T275130: Deploy Growth features on Romanian Wikipedia.

The translations are good, but now I'm a bit confused at what we're trying to achieve. Looking at the diff vs the current output (see screenshot), it looks to me that the old version is closer to what we want. I believed that the sections are fixed, but if they're fully customizable, I would suggest that knowing how to edit and how to work with images is far more important than uploading an image (especially the cross-wiki uploader that is offered by the visual editor). I propose the json below. @FonAfon do you have an opinion on that?

@Trizek-WMF Does it need to be a local page? We haven't figured out the help pages completely, but VE has pretty good help pages on mw.org and I preferred to translate those rather than creating new pages.
