In case anyone wants to use this feature, you need to create your 'thing' (e.g., an endash, a non-breaking space) at the file name "MediaWiki:Discussiontools-signature-prefix" on your wiki.

It is unacceptable for the visual editor to generate names that (a) frequently cause name conflicts

Can you give an example of this happening? I've never seen the visual editor do this.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T255898: Tell people about the new requirements for custom user signatures.

Quick update: The software change has been "live" for about two weeks, and the plain-fancy-sig error has declined from 1000+ to ~850 since then. Since our lists are only people who have made an edit during the preceding 30 days, I think this is largely new editors rolling through the system. I'm therefore going to postpone individual messages until the software has been in place for a minimum of 30 days, so that we can minimize the number of messages being sent (and therefore reduce the risk of flooding anyone's watchlist).

As a short-term fix, could we disable the : shortcut to blockquote tags as soon as possible? That's almost always the wrong answer on a talk page. We can live with whatever would happen if that shortcut had never been set up while we talk about the ideal outcome.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T255738: Make it clear in the visual mode comments will be automatically signed.

Instead of trying to make the interface clearer/change the user's behavior, I'd like to see it magically do the right thing. The nowiki'd ~~~~ should either not get nowiki'd in the first place, or it should be replaced (if it's at the end of the comment!) by a proper signature.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T255785: Template insertion fails in 2017 wikitext editor (including citation templates via citoid).

I think this is different from T255834: Citations can't be inserted in the 2017WTE

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T255742: Colons get prepended when switching between input modes.

Every time you switch back and forth, an additional set of colons is inserted. Try it: Switch to Source (so you can see the first colons). Now click Visual and then Source again, and repeat that several times. Notice that you have a lot more colons now.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T255740: Template swallows other parts of comment.

This content is being interpreted as a "complex transclusion". The explanation in T137942: Template + First paragraph treated like a complex transclusion might be relevant.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T254613: Post final requirements and implementation plan to proposal page.

This is done, except that I'd like to add a basic timeline (e.g., will the software change reach the wikis next week, next month, next quarter?)

Whatamidoing-WMF updated subscribers of T252708: Child comments inherit indentation from end of parent comment.

Has this changed? See https://nl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Overleg_Wikipedia:Universele_gedragscode&type=revision&diff=56535077&oldid=56534101 by @AdHuikeshoven. It appears to be replying on the basis of the first line's indentation, with weird results.

This doesn't happen in safemode, so the problem is almost certainly a user script or gadget.

I don't want "1B" (the "let's put templates on every wiki" approach).
