We should check the effects on older browsers and the worst laptop with throttled connection that we can find. I'm pretty sure the Obama article will become terrible at some point in that situation. This ticket should focus on how to make that 'terrible' experience as best as it can be. For instance by popping up a waiting spinner after half a second, or by automatically disabling syntax highlighting and popping up a bubble etc...

FYI, this format is rather widespread. We also had to deal with this problem when we added the XML validation to the upload process way back then.
If I remember correctly, the xml declaration (as this is called), is optional in xml 1.0. If that is correct, then the thumbor check is making assumptions that are not necessarily valid.

TheDJ added a comment to T155320: Implement strict mime type detection and media type inferring of audio/video files.

This mime-type thing keeps bothering me. I was thinking the following:

  1. make mime_type the actual 'frontend' desired mimetype of a specific file.
  2. add a new column filehandler_id
  3. add filehandler_id's to our FileHandlers
  4. add a scan method to file handlers to detect magic bytes, return true or false depending on if this handler can handle this file.
  5. when ingesting files, scan with each file handler to find the right file handler
  6. add a 'getMimeType' to file handlers to return the correct mime type for a file.
  7. register the file handler_id into the database for fast instantiation of the file handler, store the mime-type alias in the database for fast serving of the correct mime_type.

I was looking into that piece of JS that's being quoted a couple of times here. It seems that this problem still exists.

TheDJ added a comment to T24256: Change printable link to JavaScript `print()`.

I also thought it would be trivial to fix. Judging from this ticket it took almost 3 years!

Ha, I wish: "TheDJ created this task. Jan 25 2010, 2:09 AM"

TheDJ added a comment to T156141: Visual Editor accesskey conflicts with Show Changes accesskey in edit page.

BTW. it conflicts in two contexts. The history page was also using the 'v' accesskey for the "compare selected revisions". Fewer people know about that one and probably I was the only one who ever complained about that conflict, but it is still a conflict.

Hmm, my change has some downsides that I did not considered.

TheDJ added a comment to T158274: Links at the top of the "De kroeg" page in the Dutch Wikipedia does not work in mobile version.

Yeah seems pretty clear to me:
Every skin has #toc and #footer.. Except minerva. Using those IDs is a common method to navigate to the top and/or end of a page. We should either provide a different way for Minerva to satisfy that need, or just add the IDs.

For anyone who has made use of scratch codes and succeeded logging in: Please remember that because of T131788: Users should be notified when only two scratch tokens are left and T150601: Add option to generate new set of scratch codes it's not yet possible to get a new set of scratch codes and it won't tell you when you are running out :/
