btw running telnet to bot and executing "send PRIVMSG chanserv: whatever command you wanted to execute" would probably work in this case

Using Phabricator would still mean that xTools developers need to be in two places at once since all the source code is on GitHub. That's why reports are allowed at either. If the goal is to centralize everything to one place, GitHub makes the most sense to me since the code is there.

This task has been idling for about a year now, with the RfC going nowhere, and I don't remember any other requests apart from T127494. Is a formal process with lots of criteria and instructions to be followed to the letter still needed? If so, there needs to be someone who drives the discussion and distills it into a draft policy.

Sorry @EoRdE6, still trying to wrap my head around the consensus. It looks like the consensus is to just completely remove the ability to make text bigger. The alternative might be to add support for big tags as an xml object. Not sure if I want to do that either. Have to think about it a little more.

Technical13 added a comment to T98621: enwiki's job is about 28m atm and increasing.

@Mlaffs You would have assumed very wrong... From my understanding, the job queue is not a linear, easy to follow thing. Changing a template with 50K transclusions does not mean 50K jobs will be added in any specific order. It actually creates a job, that creates jobs based on a bunch of different factors and variables and then runs through those jobs to decide what jobs need jobs and what order to do them in. Then, once it finishes one of the jobs that decides what jobs to run, it creates more jobs to see if the jobs are actually done or if they need to be run again and it makes more jobs based on that including a job that reorders all the jobs... Or, something like that...

The only question/concern about this is how is "top" defined for this patch? For AfC drafts, I can see top as defined as section 0; but for the WP:THQ, which is supposed to be top posting, top would be defined as the first section after the header which is section 1 on the page (don't think there are any header sections in templates).

Technical13 added a comment to T68078: Indicate mentions in edit preview and in "Your edit was saved" message.

Could it be implemented in a way that when the user presses "preview" it'll show up under the edit box "This edit will send notifications to User:AAA, User:BBB, ... like the edit summary does? That way people don't have to guess if it will work and don't have to hit send to see if they actually sent. They'll know before save is pressed (assuming they press preview which I'm guessing they would do if it would help them ensure important notifications are sent out). Also, it could send them a notification too so they know if they got one, everyone else probably did too.

I saw the section link, had no idea what it was. Didn't think much of it, wasn't a big deal to me. Then, I came across http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#Link_to_this_section_snake and subsections and I still had no clue what it was for. I followed one of the links in the discussion to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Section#Direct_section_links and now I know what it does. It updates the URL to a be a link to that section for copy and paste reference.

No other complaints other than "it's down" that I'm aware of. I'd still like to be added as a maintainer if even it means that I must wait for a conclusion to that RfC so that I can restart it in the future (like when there is labs maint or an outage). I have no immediate plans for any specific changes to the tool at this time, but I haven't really looked into the code yet either.

Technical13 added a comment to T89235: Stash unsaved drafts of articles.

I've had people hunt me down to ask me if I could write a userscript for this and I've had people say it's a great idea when I talk about it. I've never had anyone express any concerns (except for a doubter that thought it was technically impossible but thought the idea was good) or say they didn't like the idea. After all, who wants to type the same content twice or fix the same thing twice? Also, I can only imagine how many decent new editors got discouraged by not having their contributions added correctly and just gave up/walked away since "it's only Wikipedia" and "someone will eventually fix it or create it"

Technical13 added a comment to T89538: wgPageContentModel not updated when moving a page.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:T89538 is an example of it working cross namespace. Protection doesn't seem to go (or does it, I wouldn't be able to tell unless I checked with alt account or logged out which is too much work from mobile) but content model follows which is what this ticket is about.

Technical13 added a comment to T54542: User preferences are inconsistently stored (bool/int as default, string for overrides).

I have had similar difficulties and personally prefer booleans wherever possible. They're more reliable and less likely to be unpredictable. They are either true or false or they're invalid.

Any progress on this? Having to go back and clean up things like http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Will.i.am&diff=646794855&oldid=646794596 is getting old...

Technical13 added a comment to T87730: Set up process / criteria for taking over abandoned tools.

@coren that's what I thought. Is there any process for this or discussion about setting up a process I can watch and if so where might I find links to those things, I'm assuming on Meta or Wikitech someplace?

No; since the software in Labs is all Open Source you can just Do It.

@coren @LuisV_WMF @yuvipanda would this same ticket apply if someone just wanted to be added to a tool project but not actually usurp the tool? I ask because @Atethnekos's https://tools.wmflabs.org/bibleversefinder/ tool is offline and the user hasn't been active on any project in months according to https://tools.wmflabs.org/guc/?user=Atethnekos&blocks=true and https://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools-ec/?user=Atethnekos&project=en.wikipedia.org
