Trappist_the_monk added a comment to T199347: AWB should allow use of full edit summary character limit.

Despite what Editor Reedy apparently believes, T297568 is not about the length of the edit summary output from awb but rather, it is about the number of characters that the 'default summary' text box on the start tab will accept as input. I think that T297568 and T199347 are separate issues; related, yes, but still separate. T199347 is an old (relatively) issue opened 2018-07-11. I know that edit summaries created with a c# module can be longer than the 155ish characters that the 'default summary' text box allows. By merging T297568 into this task, that distinction gets lost.

For providing a url to link the static text 'Lay summary'. The lay summary is not the cited source so does not have the same 'privileges' as |title= and |url=. An archaic hold-over from the olden days.

(I was just confused by the IETF statement because I couldn't find anything like that in IETF, i.e. https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3339 )

Yeah, my error; I type IETF much more often than I type EDTF...

I'm happy to do EDTF level 1 abridged dates instead if that's preferable to the level 0 format.

Let us stick to a single term: 'unspecified digits'; 'abridged' implies a truncation or shortening which isn't the case. The date 2021-02-XX is just as long as 2021-02-24.

Trappist_the_monk added a comment to T132308: Internationalise citoid dates.

I'd be happy to consider switching to a different way of representing partial dates that doesn't require the use of English, but unfortunately no one has suggested a standard that doesn't that I've noticed @Trappist_the_monk you suggested IETF but I had a look and couldn't find a partial date representation there - did I miss it maybe?

Isn't that what most of the whole long discussion has been about? The current IETF at Level 1 §Unspecified digit(s) from the right at item 3 reads:

Year and month specified, day unspecified in a year-month-day expression (day precision)
Example 4 ‘1985-04-XX’

Does that not provide a way to do month year dates that don't require English?

That discussion has been archived.

Trappist_the_monk added a comment to T221625: mw.title.getCurrentTitle():getContent() is undef when creating new page in VE preview.

Are you saying that what editors see while editing, is a facsimile and not a true preview of the article? It would seem so. When changes are made, ve only only tweaks those pixels that have been changed? Is that why the {{use xxx dates}} templates appear as puzzle pieces – just visual indicators that some non-displaying something is here? So anything that doesn't render directly onto the 'canvas' doesn't preview (except as a puzzle piece). For example {{italic title}} when added via ve, does not italicize the article title, does not render the expected MediaWiki error message when {{italic title}} conflicts with a {{DISPLAYTITLE}} setting that occurs earlier in the page – things we would expect from a true preview. To learn of this kind of error, editors must either shift to the wikisource editor and preview from there or save the page. There is no true preview in ve.

Trappist_the_monk added a comment to T221625: mw.title.getCurrentTitle():getContent() is undef when creating new page in VE preview.

Not sure I believe that. In the simple create-a-new-article-with-the-wikisource-editor test that I described at Help talk:Citation Style 1, I did not save anything so the preview cannot be, as you claim in that discussion, "against the last saved version of the page" (there is no saved version of a page that has never been saved). I agree that Module:Citation/CS1/Configuration should probably handle a case where mw.title.getCurrentTitle():getContent() returns nil but I do not agree that your proposal to do so is the right and proper remedy of the ve-can't-properly-render-a-preview problem. Clearly because it is possible to preview a never-saved page created by the wikisource editor, the root fault does not lie with ~/Configuration.

Trappist_the_monk added a comment to T220959: bot includes language icon template in cs1|2 |title= parameter.

So perhaps the solution is to abandon edits when |title= would contain a template because, who knows what gibberish templates emit when rendered. In mainspace at en.wiki, {{it icon}} produces this: <span class="languageicon">(in Italian)</span>[[Category:Articles with Italian-language external links]]. Any of the many language wikis that use a relatively recent version of [[Module:Citation/CS1]] will show the URL–wikilink conflict error message when |title= holds a template that produces a wikilink and when |url= has a value (as it will if the bot is creating a cs1|2 template).

Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railway, The Tomb of Lu Xun, and Zeng Fengnian all exhibit similar issues to the issues described by this ticket – all have html versions of what should be cs1|2 templates (ctrl-f search the source for cite class. These articles were created with Content_translation and Content_translation/V2 – the first two were translated this month and the last one was translated in 2016.

May also happen with 2017 wikitext editor. This page creation page creation has text and citations that appear to have been copy/pasted from Venom (2018_film).

This edit at We Are the Romans was apparently made by copy/paste from one article to another using ve. related to the original issue? I don't know but clearly a failure of ve that needs fixing. Discussion about that edit is at the editor's talk page.

because this conversation has apparently collapsed and died without obvious resolution, I have removed the code that supported edtf transformations from the cs1|2 module sandbox.

I'll hack the cs1|2 sandbox to demonstrate this in the next day or two.

Easier than I thought. Discussion and simple examples at en.wiki Help talk:Citation Style 1.

The only issue is that they do represent missing precision in the form YYYY-MM

Is that not handled by §5.2.2 Unspecified? That section reads, in part:

  1. Year and month specified, day unspecified.
    • 1999-01-uu
      • some day in January 1999

That form is much the same as the 1999-01-00 form suggested elsewhere and accomplishes the same thing.

In response to T132308#3272430, @Mvolz:

Wait a minute, citoid can render all dates in readable format and in the appropriate language? Tell me again why we've been having this conversation?

What I wrote was merely a suggestion and should be taken to be just that: a suggestion. It was intended to move the conversation ahead. My point was to show that it is possible to create our own inter-tool date exchange standard so that citoid can transmit dates to the various wikis with their various templates in a consistent and understandable manner. We have already had Editor Jc3s5h declare the YYYY-MM-00 format to be unacceptable, you are suggesting, I think, that requiring that en.wiki editors write an en dash in YYYY–yy year range dates is unacceptable. Are we now stymied? Shall we just up stumps and retire to the pavilion?

Anything that examines the wikitext and finds yyyy-mm-00 should reject it as completely non-standard.

which is why I wrote:

Whatever it is that is chosen, document it, adhere to it, and advertise it so that we all know what it is.

We do get back dates which violate CS1 rules like 10-04 and 11/11/2007 so we still need to attempt to validate.

At en.wiki the rules are Manual of Style rules that cs1|2 adhere to; they are not 'CS1 rules'

Having our own modified version of ISO that includes seasons and quarters I think increases the burden on citation templates to too great a degree, so as much as it bothers the standards compliant person in me, I think we just have to do this sort of arbitrarily.

Can anyone think of a publication Summer 2003 date or similar that has an issue number in addition?

These are all great suggestions. I think in iso8601 it is not valid to leave out the dashes except when the time is also included as well though.

Section 4.1.2.3 does say that reduced accuracy year and month dates do require the hyphen.

@Trappist_the_monk, do you have any objections to having CS1 support all of the ISO formats?
