Volker_E added a comment to T204777: Any full-width OOUI widget part of “Basic information” is overflowing virtual 50em max-width.

There's the discussion of “Signature“ being renamed, we could consider moving it there and depending of MW showing real name as label addendum.
The bigger issue in my opinion is, that it's not even clear in the out-of-box experience where it's used for.

@Dvorapa Thanks for pointing those out.
Apart from T65987#4594520 where I've commented just now, other ones are either possibly more complex refactorings and/or in need for further user testing and are not blockers for the important OOUI transformation task T117781. Nonetheless, work on subtasks here will continue, for example on T203727 or T203992.

Volker_E added a comment to T65987: Change "Basic information" section of Special:Preferences into "Account management".

See also related task T203727: Restructure and improve 'Basic information' section, which aims at refining separation of concerns of this salmagundi of options within “Basic information”. Currently, I don't see any of the proposals for renaming as clear advantageous over “Basic information” in regards to meta title “User profile”.
“Account management”, “Account details” or “Account information” have the same weakness as “Basic information” – there's information and options underneath one word umbrella, but the options further down like “Signature” would also work underneath the same title, no matter which one we chose.
I'm inclined closing this in favor of T203727 if no further arguments are brought forward.

Volker_E added a comment to T192489: Page previews settings (“cog wheel“) are not keyboard accessible.

@alexhollender It's a double-sided issue. Providing keyboard accessibility to the settings without further refinement would mean an extra tab to go to the next tabbable element each and every time, having a negative impact on navigation for keyboard-users only.
We'd need to come up with an easy way to let keyboard users access settings probably just once per page…?!

Volker_E closed T195986: FOUC in OOUIfied Special:Preferences as Resolved.

@Ryasmeen @Jdforrester-WMF and myself narrowed the horizontal shift down to a Vector behaviour when scrollbars are appearing and has been the case before. With that we'll file a task and this can be set to “resolved” successfully.

Volker_E added a comment to T203470: Fix graph dialog in mobile visual editor.

That looks and works much better in my opinion, also given that it's just three options.
One thing I'd like to note is, the labels and widgets should align top & bottom in 320px to 481px media query range. That would circumvent weird px breakout in next line and make labels like “Automatic padding” which got weirdly translated to “Automatische Auffüllung” (<= I have no idea what that should refer to as German native speaker) stay in one line
Status quo in German:

@Deskana To repeat once more, in a technically perfect world we would be able to have handles to differentiate between hardware-keyboard featuring devices and no-keyboard devices, but we don't have the handles (yet).

Putting on “stalled” as we need clarification on layout and multingual quality of the 75 character rule.

Volker_E added a comment to T203992: Random italicized text under Reading preferences section on Special: Preferences > Appearance tab.

It's not only weirdly italicized, it's also a <p> which shouldn't be a child element of a label.
