duplicate of T334555.
Feb 13 2023
two examples, without and without translate opened.
Feb 6 2023
see here the examples from mediawiki, but on wikipedia this is similar. i remember how long it took me to register an account. i thought it is not beneficial. until i found out that this thing publically logs my IP address on an edit - and what people can do with it. apart from the benefits you mention RHo. and - the benfits on one place which is regularly seen - login - would be very good. create account is too rare and creating an account is necessary for login. create account by itself has no benefit. other than blocking your username.

is there any chance to remove "create account" from the top level and let it be on the login page? there is no obvious help why creating an account is cool. i created one to describe it a little better:
Feb 3 2023
not sure @Aklapper , how would you formulate it to get the "change" links together, and only one time? like move, visual edit, source edit ? to get kind of similar user experience as on mobile?
the scroll bar is there as well for the default TOC without expanding it. there as well it would be nice to not have it. but - there it seems to be more tricky to implement something working i guess as it is floating. so @Aklapper , thank you for restricting the ticket to the one with the button!
am not too sure, in google it remembers what i chose before. if mediawiki could do the same would be cool. preferences would be an option as well - but that would be one parameter more - not so sure it is advisable. or - the ones where my user did edits in the past?
@bwang how does this look like now, one click to log in or 2 clicks to log in?
Feb 1 2023
thanks @Aklapper to merge the feature request. @ovasileva @bmartinezcalvo , vector 2022 design is cool but exposes often used links one to three levels too deep. login is one example. i d be really glad if create account coud be replaced with login. and create account stays on the login page itself, as it is with so many other websites. so - login - one click. create account - two clicks (login - create account).
maybe close this one, T326281 sounds nice enough.

@Jdforrester-PERSONAL the try was to translate from french to german. german wikipedia has flagged revisions. despite that the article got deleted during translation. @Aklapper closed it in the assumption that there is some grace period to be configured so new articles would show up to new article patrollers, e.g. after 3 hours or so? if it exists, how to configure it?

@AlexisJazz can you point to the page where consensus was reached about the current display, so we can refer to it?
Mar 11 2022
here, the line with cc-3.0 should be removed.
this is ok ...

@AlexisJazz @Aklapper , community consensus to help avoiding legal trouble for wikipedia users? really. which page you want community consensus to come from - i can make an entry there?
Feb 21 2022
you are right, @AlexisJazz lets leave aside the correct license for chilean government works, apart from that the fact that the upload wizard should not list it, otherwise we have hundreds for every country.

a couple of reports of copyright / copyleft trolling, which could be avoided by such metadata:
- cory doctorow, 2022, A Bug in Early Creative Commons Licenses Has Enabled a New Breed of Superpredator, https://doctorow.medium.com/a-bug-in-early-creative-commons-licenses-has-enabled-a-new-breed-of-superpredator-5f6360713299.
- 2018 reported by martin steiger, cc switzerland: https://steigerlegal.ch/2018/10/15/wladyslaw-sojka-wikipedia-abmahnungen/, image in question, as most cases cc-by-sa 3.0: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Aerial_View_-_Goetheanum1.jpg
@AnneT , related to here, the former european director of creative commons, cory doctorow, got targetted by a copyleft troll, see his post: A Bug in Early Creative Commons Licenses Has Enabled a New Breed of Superpredator. he recommends now to use cc-by-sa-4.0 and higher. to reliably get rid of such trolls, two actions should be taken imo. first, require cc 4.0+ and second, embed the link to the license and/or source with the license into the images metadata. INTO the file. so if somebody downloads and uses it the correct metadata is there. @Tgr i saw your comment about this beeing scary in your comment T250317#6178173, on T5361 ... but this one single link to the source should suffice to extinct trolls. everything else can be fixed via license, or viewers.

as additional info:
@Samwilson who would be able to judge if WMF hosting such a service would be an option, or, in general, if, calling a service and caching the service calls result to render something is desireable?

re-reading your 2nd remark, you mean a proposal to improve the voting for wishlist survey should be posted to wishlist survey? how ironic :) for this year it is too late, and for next year i will have already have forgotten about the proposal until voting pops up on the main page.
@Aklapper let me rewrite it. i now found how this is called. ordering via ranked pairs, or schulze method or whatever lets you sort a list via comparing 2 pairs, or a low number of entries.

nowadays there is an extenstion https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Diagrams , would enabling it be a step into the right direction?
there is another extension looking interesting: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Diagrams , what you think about enabling that one @Tgr ?
Dec 27 2021
thank you @Aklapper, so you say this is a bug not a not yet implemented feature :) here you go:
- on a laptop with chrome or firefox, open https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cristiano_Ronaldo#/editor/35
- click into a cell marked with a long dash "-"
- the cell is not marked and there is no obvious way to press "split"

@tstarling - as promised on facebook, here a task for measurements.
it is enwp specific ... as other languages do not tend to have ft in ?
Oct 24 2021
since 2016 there is a nice library which should prevent this lots of code:
Oct 21 2021
when using on laptop screens it stops beeing responsive from 50% of the laptop screens witdht on and does not use the available space any more:
- a lot of white space left and right
- items stil with 2 clicks like "my contributions"
- same is valid for editing - the edit area is tiny
- the font is not the operating system default font and default font size
Oct 19 2021
ah really, you r right. it is responsive from 0 to 50% of a small laptop screen. then it stops adapting. attached an editing window screenshot. looks same with firefox and chromium. if i click "legacy vector" it uses the whole screen width. adding ?safemode=1 does not affect the width as well.
Oct 16 2021
cool - i saw how this works, thanks for the hint! this is not the most intuitive fried i saw in my life i must admit :) :)
Oct 15 2021
ah, i see, @TheDJ, @Jdlrobson, thank you so much! that is it, the narrow and widescreen gadget is enabled by default, can i close this task or you prefer to leave it open and change the title?
@Jdlrobson just out of interest, why did you opt to have "skin versions" or "vector uses two internal skins", instead of just having a new vector21, make it default whenever you like, and drop "vector" whenever you like?
Sep 26 2021
@Jdlrobson i saw in the techn news your name to ping ...

the title "password meter" would not suggest a duplication. but the contents is a full ducplicate - and - has a lot more value. there is already an expert discussion in T32574: Display a password strength bar which includes password strenght. the patch attached to T32574: Display a password strength bar uses a password meter algorithm. it implements to configure a minimum strenght in the config file. it does not (yet) implement anything to show the complexity of the password to the user beforehand. having a second ticket only for the lenght of the password based on a paper of such weak quality which is not even public for everybody seems not ok. what mediawiki currently offers is already far better than described in that paper:
- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgPasswordPolicy - password lenght 8 for different user groups already there
- limit the rate of retry in online attacks
- hash the passwords for offline attacks (not sure though if it is still in line with what NIST says ...)
Jul 21 2018
yes, exactly, many thanks for the copy out, reedy! there is T32574 as well which partially covers what is mentioned in this ticket (aaaaaaa)
an example password strenght meter:
- demo: https://cups.cs.cmu.edu/meter/
- mentioned in this article: https://phys.org/news/2017-05-unveil-password-meter-users-passwords.html.
- source is here: https://github.com/cupslab/password_meter
duplicate of T32574 - there is a patch which implements password lenght attached to T32574. this does not display yet a password meter.
