Strainu added a comment to T158360: RFC: Disabling LocalisationUpdate on WMF wikis.

Does this proposal mean that the MediaWiki translations will also go away? There are cases when the software is translated at translatewiki in a generic way, which should make any 3rd pary user happy, while on Wikipedia we adapt it to Wikimedia tools and local customs. How will those be treated in the future?

Since this is such a disputed feature, perhaps an option would be the way out? As for the indication of the end, perhaps another image (such as a double arrow) would be enough?

Strainu added a comment to T146351: Don't use <dd> for indenting descriptions on Special:ApiSandbox.

So, I fixed @Kosson's commit to use block-level elements (e.g. imbricated divs). It might be just me, but I think the indentation looked nicer. Would it be enough to add a margin-left: 1.6em to class description?

Strainu added a comment to T61080: isCategoryRedirect is very slow.

@Xqt , from a wiki point of view, the new behavior is correct: when the category redirects to a page from another namespace, an error is shown, but the category is still included in the "Redirected categories" tracking category. It is also in accordance with the behavior of page.isRedirect, where no check is made.

@JGirault , I mentioned above that this is linked to our version of Twinkle (you need to enable the gadget to reproduce) and that I would appreciate any suggestion on what is exactly going wrong - I just can't understand how can Twinkle affect that particular code - there is nothing called "externals" or "fetch" in either of the Twinkle scripts. I also tried looking at the up-to-date TW source to see if I could find something to fix this.

Strainu added a comment to T154117: Maplink implementation throws a JS TypeError.

Further investigation showed that this is caused by our version of Twinkle. I am leaving this bug open in the hope that I can get some help on how they interact causing this. The backtrace does not seem to involve Twinkle at all, so I must be missing something. I am hoping that the Kartographer team can indicate what exactly goes wrong in their code so I can use that information to debug Twinkle. Thanks!

Strainu added a comment to T151408: Separate bot right for normal pages and interface (MediaWiki:) pages.

Not only can such a measure be worked around, as Krinkle described, but I suspect it would encourage further "leaking" of sensitive JS into other namespaces, just to ensure the edits don't showup in RC. On smaller wikis with low manpower bot edits that appear in the RC are frowned upon (because they seem to "steal" the attention from vandals) and risk raising useless frictions.

Strainu added a comment to T144586: Templated link attribute in images doesn't round trip back properly.

@ssastry, I can reproduce it reliably on FF 49 on Windows, but I expect it to reproduce in any browser. I think the trick is to edit the page in Visual Editor, change something anywhere on the page, then move to wikitext editor. If no change occurred, the switch is almost instantaneous, which makes me suspect that the text is loaded from the database instead of being converted from the version in Visual Editor.

Strainu added a comment to T150210: Make WbQuantity handle case without errors.

My worry is that the current solution would require everyone who wants their bot to correctly handle Quantities on Wikidata to update their code (adding the site object). Whereas if they ignore the warning they can happily go on mishandling them (which affects T142087).

After thinking about this some more one solution would be to have _require_errors() return False instead if no site object is provided. That way Wikidata users will automatically get the desired behaviour without changing anything.

@Yann, you're twisting my words. I never said the community should work more, what I said is that they should be friendly (or at the very least polite) with uploaders no matter how they upload, that's all. I even offered an alternative way to have more new images covered.

Are you expecting we to have the time to process all the files from everywhere friendlily, when Commons don't even have a fifth of the admin manpower of English Wikipedia (counting # of admins)?

It's Commons that has to deal with the mess, and Commons that has the power to (effectively) turn it off. It's Commons' business, however hurt the WMF might be about its fancy new toy being turned off, or however mildly inconvenienced some users on other projects may be.

An interactive visualization of the CSV files that @matmarex shared - https://prtksxna.github.io/upload-stats/. Clicking around will show that bad uploads are correlated with new users no matter the tool. Hope it helps.

Strainu added a comment to T144992: Find out how new anti-copyvio abusefilters are affecting uploads.

@matmarex: Actually, from the last graph I see there is a slight change of trend just around the cutoff date for the rest of the graphs (from abruptly down to slightly up). Is it related to WLM or some other software change that was made around that time?

Which function of ElasticSearch did you mean? Typing User:.. in the search box?

Using good IMEs solves a part of the problem by reducing the need for smart replacements, but they cannot solve everything, and not all users use them.

@Jdforrester-WMF, regarding the use of IMEs, I think we're turning in circles by now: you tell us how great IMEs are, while @Amire80 tells a totally different story. I would appreciate it very much if you guys would take the time to get together and decide if this is indeed a good idea or not and come up with a working example.
