This would have to be fixed first before generally applying row hover highlighting along with a white background to all tables:

I edit Help:Table and people ask about how to do row highlighting. The info was only relatively recently added to Help:Table. But it is rapidly being used by more and more tables. It would be a shame to lose this very useful function. It is difficult sometimes to follow a row of data across a wide table. Row highlighting on hover makes it much easier. And the white background of mw-datatable makes the light blue hover color stand out. And thus easier to follow across the row.

Thanks Jdlrobson for the Phabricator ticket. class=mw-datatable is used in a lot of tables. People like it for 2 reasons:
1: The row highlighting on hover.
2: The white background for non-header cells. It makes for more contrast especially when there are non-bolded links in the non-header cells. The blue links against the normal gray background of non-header cells are not very contrasting. Bolded blue links against the gray background of header cells are less of a problem, though I think the gray background of headers is too dark of a gray. class=mw-datatable is often used with class=wikitable and the gray header background of class=wikitable overrides the blue background of class=mw-datatable

Hi @Aklapper. I rewrote the task. I hope it makes more sense. I used sections. I did not know it was possible to use sections. I guessed correctly that equal signs would do it. As an aside, I wish that only wikitext was used for editing in Phabricator.

List of U.S. states by incarceration and correctional supervision rate is an example of a table that needs a fixed row number column. Because there are 3 separate columns that are important enough that people want to see them in rank order. That can't be done with an integrated rank order column. It can only be done with a fixed row number column.

Timeshifter added a comment to T201696: Create optional list of editable default edit summaries for Rollback function, or add a Rapid Undo link.

From my reading of this thread, it sounds like Timeshifter wants Rollback either disabled entirely or turned into another just another "undo" function.

Wrap yourself around "existing policies and community norms" all you want. I did not abuse the talk page. She did. She blanked part of it without explanation.

I asked her why she didn't leave an edit summary, and she beat around the bush about not needing one at all. In the 2nd thread I suggested changing its title to "Rollback is currently inherently abusive". I think Rollback editors should apologize for the times its use causes all these problems. Problem is solved by using undo instead in those situations where a lot of material is being removed from different sections of a talk page.

I would like this optional edit summary list to be available for all Wikimedia wikis that have the rollback function. I am not a developer and so I don't know anything about implementing this technically.

The whole point of creating some options for meaningful edit summaries for Rollback is to generate a more positive atmosphere on Wikimedia Projects. To avoid rude blanking of parts of pages without explanation. To lower the number of active editors who leave. To encourage those that stay by feeling the need to explain things to them. Wikimedia has become so rude at times that some longterm rollback users do not even see the problem.

"Reverted edits by User1 (talk) to last version by User2" says nothing about why the reversion was made.

Addressing Chrissymad's concerns. One of the options in the edit summary list could be to leave no edit summary. Or Chrissymad could choose Long Term Abuse, etc, etc. from the list as an option. From then on all her rollbacks would show that as the edit summary. At least until she chose another option from the list.

Why is it that when I add ":Talk" to the "Active filters" area I lose everything else in the "Active filters" area? Those non-talk items no longer show up in the watchlist.

I am completely baffled by this system. Need tooltips on everything. On that filter selection you provided it seems that adding the talk tag removes all the other stuff I want to see:

This problem with row height being increased would not be a problem if there were not a separate row-number table adjacent to the main table.

matmarex. Could you edit that old comment of yours and add in full URLs so that we can check it out? I have had to do that on old comments after we changed over to phabricator. Is the JS the same? You might update that also on that post.

Could someone explain to me in simple English why there is no simple way to add a column of fixed row numbers to tables. What is blocking this? Many tables are out of date due to their use of rank order columns that are completely out of whack. Due to any change in data in the table.
