I'm from Finland and I can speak Finnish and English (I'm not very good in it).
For more information about me, see User:Stryn on Meta-Wiki.
Maybe the emulator that Etonkidova used is not really accurate with my devices as my notifications never disappeared.
Never disappeared or never appeared?
Never disappeared. As you can see from the video I uploaded, you can actually see the notifications. It's not blank for me like it was in a gif by Etonkovidova.
I created a new account but it's a bit difficult to debug because you need more than just a few notifications to see the slowness. More notifications make it more slowlier. Even after a few notifications it gets a bit slowlier and buggy.
Sounds like you have some filters enabled on your watchlist to not show edits made by bots.
I have Samsung Galaxy S9+, Android 9, Firefox 68.3.0 (but same problem in Firefox Beta, Firefox Preview), Vector skin.
I tried to use the timeless skin, and there the notifications opened faster and didn't make the browser to freeze.
It's not changing anything.
I can't even use desktop mode in Android Firefox; it tells me that I need to enable cookies first (but they are already enabled). I'm not familiar with mobile Firefox, is there some extra privacy feature that needs to be disabled?
There is same slowliness in notification buttons in Firefox Preview.
Special:Notifications seems to open without any problems on normal Firefox mobile version.
And if there is 2 templates before the actual article content, then there is also 2 empty rows in edit mode.
I know that a couple of us would appreciate hearing some more about why you prefer to look at notifications on desktop instead of mobile view (or why you're using desktop over mobile in general).
I always use the dekstop view because I work as a steward and I can't quickly revert revisions / block users in mobile view. Also, I need a global block feature and sometimes checkuser, they work much better in desktop mode.
Please answer the following questions:
- Where is your dead link template(s)?
- Do you have any archive template(s)? Please list them.
- Do you want talk page messages?
- What is the community's preferred date format, and all other acceptable formats in order of preference?
I tried to find some example edits on wiki to make it easier to translate, but could not really find.
It may be that few of these will be changed later when/if someone notice a mistake in translation:
When searching on Google "space wmflabs" the first result is http://discuss-space.wmflabs.org/ (not https), so the content on site won't appear at all on Firefox.
example edit (with link corrected)
And today a new message in village pump: https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Kahvihuone_(tekniikka)#%22Br-merkinn%C3%A4t%22
How about not showing the blocked pages straight on the log, but make an additional form/page where to add all pages that are blocked from an user, and only show a link to the blocked pages on the log?
That way the block log won't be so extremely long and difficult to read, even if there is xxx number of pages.
The signature button in visual editor that is is grayed out by default (and thus can't be used) outside of talk pages. It would be useful however in "Wikiprojekti" namespace as there's many projects where people can show their interest by adding a signature.
Watchlist still show that I have seen some changes even if I haven't. I understood that this was resolved.
I have seen pages on my watchlist marked as read even though I never read them. I have seen this occurring since 1 May or something. It happens in every wikis. Hopefully this get fixed soon, because many users may lose important messages when they don't know that there is a bug that automatically marks some pages as read.
Something like: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:UrlShortener was shortened to w.wiki/4e [show user]
And make it only available for stewards (?) because they can only remove the short url's too.
I didn't use Gerrit for many months. I even forgot my password so I changed it first from wikitech.
Same problem here, can't login there. No matter is the first character "S" or "s".
I tried to use Gerrit but can't.
What happened here?
Now in every wikis there is a local AbuseFilter (with localized user names) user account that is a sysop.
In Finnish language projects: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/V%C3%A4%C3%A4rink%C3%A4ytt%C3%B6suodatin
In Finnish Wikipedia a local bureaucrat just removed user rights from this user, because they were granted to user account without consensus (as required by the local policy).
https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%A4rjestelm%C3%A4viesti:Edittools.js is reported to be broken on the Finnish Wikipedia:
Could this be fixed? It's annoying to see it every day in special:block....
Looks like this was resolved.
Someone just contacted us (luckily)
How can they find way to contact stewards when links are not working?
Happens randomly to me.
You will stay logged in for example all Wikipedia projects, but when go to other domain like wikibooks.org, you are logged out.
Annoying bug especially when 2FA is enabled and you need to log in many times.
Of course you can't link to French Wikipedia just by adding [[ːfrːSusan N. Herman|Susan N. Herman]].
It doesn't work either on Meta-Wiki or Wikidata. You need a add a project prefix when linking to different project, here it would be "w" (means Wikipedia).
your script is good, but it doesn't always give a "lock all" link in header ( for example here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Steward_requests/Global&oldid=18284165#Global_lock_for_socks_of_Avoided_(or_an_impostor) because there is text before the account list ) and always requires a new header to work.
Is the only thing wrong with this the fact that the last two lines should not be there?
I was hoping
would do the trick, but it prints:
In 2013 there was some RfC-like vote at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_project_domain
I created a video to show the problem (https://youtu.be/2akrQGSWSUY).
I think it's possible with a template too,
Template:LockHide could be modified so that in can include many usernames:
Also occurs to me and reported on the Finnish Wikipedia:
It came with the latest Firefox.
Checked in betalabs
- users that had New filters as beta feature before won't see the intro popup - according to the specs
I've never used ReFill. I don't have 2017 wikitext editor enabled.
Oh sorry, apologize!
I thought they had exactly the same title and description.
Sounds like it's related to T199216
Yes, earlier it showed me the original name, and I expect always see the original name in suggestions, not incorrect forms that are redirects. For example when I write articles, I many times use the search suggestions to copy the correct form (I don't know how to type "Đ" letter [Novak Đoković], so it's easy to copy from the suggestions). Now when I see only Novak Djokovic, whick is a redirect, it slows down my work writing articles.
This is very important for stewards.

Hmm, what is happening? Earlier I get an email "1 Wikipedia Library applications await your review" when a new application was sent.
In June there is a new application, but I didn't get any email. Is there some setting already that I need to turn on or T161821 is not working anymore?
My issue was not a login related notification, but "You just made your first edit; thank you, and welcome!" on https://login.wikimedia.org when I created there a common.js page for myself. Then I deleted the page, restored, but could not turn off the notification. After 6 months I restored the page (https://login.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=delete&user=Stryn&page=&year=&month=-1&tagfilter=&hide_patrol_log=1&hide_tag_log=1) and marked the notification as read and finally it was gone. So I don't have this problem anymore.
Finnish Wikipedia also twice (1 on two different village pumps), but well let it be then.
It's now mentioned twice on Wikidata project chat:
Not all it seems, but at least guc, https://petscan.wmflabs.org/ and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Mix%27n%27match/Manual#Widar_tool_not_available
Actually all tools on wmflabs.org are down.

Hi, I'm going to inform Finnish projects right now
Ok, so more popups :(
Today I tried to revert again (https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk%3ASteward_requests%2FUsername_changes&type=revision&diff=18098466&oldid=18092636) and didn't get the error, strange...
