Volker_E added a comment to T235967: Accessibility: make crucial warnings an alert.

It seems useful to me to add role=alert to errors, warnings seem more to be cautious when we alert screenreader users, as it completely stops the page or task flow.
With OOUI MessageDialogs labelled under “Quick alert” in the demos, it seems necessary to look into current applications before adding such disruptive behaviour. A lot of those in-production could actually backfire when changed upstream.

Volker_E added a comment to T237781: Confusing sub-sectioning of Components?.

Thanks @alexhollender for clarification. In case I've been unclear in the task description I see a flat hierarchy currently as best option too – because we're installing a level that we barely explain in the components itself, nor is it usually used in context of applying our components. But the expanded variant seemed to be my understanding of our conversation as alternative option as well.

@alexhollender I saw your comment above too late, the step proposed by @Pginer-WMF made sense to me and has been merged via https://github.com/wikimedia/WikimediaUI-Style-Guide/pull/300 and deployed.
We need to fix the question on flat vs extra structure level before moving on with further changes.

For me the question remains, if the context for using the 'check' icon is sufficient as metaphor for Publish in Japanese or Korean. In contrast to a checkbox, this use case seems to have the potential to be confusing. I'd defer to a quick user test in affected languages.

It would be very good to get clarification if Git LFS is going to be supported long-term or not. @20after4 @akosiaris

ToggleSwitches should only be used in settings where instant effect is possible. Unlike AMC mode


we feature a “save” button on Special:Preferences and don't have instant saving ability. A checkbox is recommended here.

Volker_E added a comment to T237052: Why are there 2 search bars on Special:Search ?.

There has been somewhat related discussions to make “normal” Vector search's a) OOUI b) autocomplete more useful. This got stopped AFAIK with search team priority changes. Advanced Search was developed by WMDE and integrated a few of the newer experience features, that were discussed, but Vector search is still lacking.
Right now it seems this task is touching too many things to be workable. @Jdlrobson Do you think that

  • normal Vector search should disappear if advanced search is browsed or
  • normal Vector search is missing better autocomplete?
