Volker_E added a comment to T171363: New buttons in MediaWiki interface are too subtle when highlighted.

@Koavf First off, which is the browser/platform of your choice? (Asking because the default browser focus varies widely between browsers and operating systems)
We're talking about the blue 2px wide primary blue border on :focus that you find subtle?

Volker_E added a comment to T152532: HTMLCheckMatrix checkboxes and labels are not clearly visually associated.

@Prtksxna These links are not labels in the functional sense, you click them and go to a different page. I'd turn the pattern question: When a checkbox has a clickable form label, it should either be above or behind the checkbox. Here we should not apply this rule as it breaks users expectations, therefore the request in T150079 would be falsely applied UI pattern logic.

@Anomie @Tgr First off, thanks for the great work! :)
Have you considered to and if so, what options would we have to make template styles following CSS coding conventions? I guess one of the thoughts behind was to keep hurdles for template editors low to participate and orientate on lax CSS standard.
Maybe as automated step in sanitizing the files?

@Liuxinyu970226 Thanks for pointing this out!
By help of automated translation, it seems to me, that the main argument is about replacing the class needs editors work best by help of a bot. It doesn't say, that people are opposing the change generally, correct? Maybe @dchan or @chelsyx could help reassuring this?

@Jdrewniak has prepared https://github.com/wikimedia/WikimediaUI-Style-Guide/pull/37 with a slightly different approach taken by @Nirzar.
Two things are missing, that we should add:

  • Clear indicators (headings), which meta group the color swatches (“Base”, “Accent”…) belong to
  • Still show RGB and HSB values on :hover to make extending the palette simpler for average users.

Volker_E added a comment to T170267: TagMultiselectWidget (draggable) shouldn't inherit `role=listbox` of DraggableGroupElement.

It seems most appropriate to have a draggable with role=list and elements with listitem.

Volker_E closed T149653: ComboBoxInput- & CapsuleMultiSelectWidget's MenuSelectWidget required `aria-expanded` attribute is missing as Resolved.
