Thomas_Shafee added a comment to T285358: Use preload text to reply to a question (participate in a poll?) with the Reply tool.

Thanks! In general, it'll be useful to be able to control both relies and new discussions in similar ways, especially via the URL. The use case on this page is probably extreme, but there are plenty of pages where replies expect to have templates in (or around) them. The most common is probably voting, where it'd be useful to have three buttons support/oppose/comment that add a reply with one of those templates (similar to Template:Vote_below).

From a WikiJournal User Group point of view, these would also be very interesting (technical wishlist). I'm pretty unfamiliar with Phabricator. What'd the best way to restart this? Especially:

Thomas_Shafee added a comment to T220703: Increase the max length of URL to be shortened.

Since the main use case for shotening long urls within wikimedia is 99% for query.wikidata.org, could that page instead include an option for the query to be piped straight to the url shortener (or compress its url)?

Thomas_Shafee added a comment to T188871: support custom wikilink procedure per-wiki.

Just a note to say this would be extremely valuable for WikiJournals, since almost all links in them are interwiki links pointing to wikipedia articles. (discussion, draft technical wishlist)

+ 1 on increasing length. Indeed long wikidata queries are probably the single most valuable use-case for the w.wiki url shortener.

I love the idea of this module. I'm trying to get Template:WPX_member_box functional in WikiProject_Molecular_Biology. It seems to work fine in other wikiprojects. Is there page that I need to create that I'm missing?

What would the process be for deciding whether the character limit can be raised?

Thomas_Shafee added a comment to T224259: URL shortener error for long URLs.

I'd be happy to see it raised an order of magnitude. Is there a possible negative application or security risk that it is aiming to avoid?

Additional note: In mobile mode, I also get the warning "The URL is too long, the maximum size is 2,000 characters". This doesn't appear in the desktop version.

We're currently looking at moving off godaddy. Eventually we hope to have the Wikimedia take over hosting of the domain name (meta:WikiJournal).

Thomas_Shafee added a comment to T181694: Add date range options to ArticleInfo.

Although requested for distinctly self-serving reasons, I think date ranges will be generally useful in the same way that they are in the pageviews tool.

It is used for listing all contributors to a WikiJournal article (e.g. Rotavirus journal article) using a hyperlinked "et al" in the author list.
