Timeshifter added a comment to T42618: jquery.tablesorter: Add support for a "fixed" column of row numbers..

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.

I want room for a long descriptive title on one wide line. Not a long title spread out over several lines. I want to be able to scan a list of filter set titles. That can be done quickly if each filter set title is on one line. And if there is no need to hover to get the full description.

I don't want you to cover every community of the 900 wikimedia communities. Only one. English Wikipedia. Nearly all the discussions on Mediawiki.org are in English. So move the discussion over to English Wikipedia. Put a redirect from Mediawiki.org and Meta.wikimedia.org. That way you will get far more feedback. It is a pragmatic thing, not an ideological thing.

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.

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

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.

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.

Is T113340 (Allow to request modules by CSS classes in content) holding this up?

I oppose a single edit button as the default setting. Whether for logged-in or anonymous users. It should only be a preference.

It is the same for me in both Firefox and Google Chrome. I just checked.

Can you spare a dime, or a tooltip? Remember tooltips?:

Every little added step of difficulty and annoyance causes both short and longterm editors to leave Wikipedia, or to edit less. Thus the continuing decline in total monthly edits, and stagnation or decline in the number of active editors.

Adding a blank column is easy. That's two clicks in Visual Editor,

How about something like header=Lp in the top of the table wikitext? So to get Polish numbers and header:

{|  lang="pl" header="Lp" class="wikitable sortable rownumbers"

OK, I see that currently it requires an existing blank column. See:

It seems that the patch does not create a column for the row numbers? Why not?

And the whole initial premise of it being 'confusing' that the numbers follow the sort state, is rather an arbitrary valuation as well. I find it confusing if they don't follow the sorting actions personally. I don't know. I'm still not enthusiastic.

What about using "rownumber"? Is that in use on Wikipedia, or other wikis?

I prefer simplicity. There is no great need for "mw" in front of the class name. I have no problem with "autonumber", "rownumber", or just "rows". Or anything else without "mw" in front of it.

Is there any reason this can not be implemented right now? I will be adding row numbering to dozens of tables right away when this is implemented. Once I do so, I am sure it will be immediately added to hundreds more tables as others see how easy it is to add something like
class="wikitable sortable rownumbers"
