Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T309223: #right-navigation Tab Moves to The Left, Next to #left-navigation, on Some Mobile Browsers Browsing as Desktop in Vector-2022.

I can produce something like this description if I have just the right (or wrong?) combination of font and screen sizes in Chrome on macOS. It looks a little weirder with a different tab selected, e.g., when the editing window is open.) I think I could manage this on old Vector as well, but I don't have a screenshot of that.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T270789: Add affordance to the Reply and New Discussion Tools that enables people to disable them.

Given the low opt-out rate for the [reply] tool, I'm not sure that we should have an in-tool opt-out affordance. It's possible that more people would accidentally click it, and then wonder why a favorite feature disappeared unexpectedly, than would value it. Perhaps this ticket should just be closed?

I think this happens with all of VisualEditor (not just its 2017 wikitext mode), and I think there is an old bug report that this is essentially a duplicate of. See also https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Wtrv8ofa4cyllouc for a bug report that has nothing to do with Extension:Translate, but which is the same kind of problem in the end.

I've requested translations of mw:Help:Sample discussion via https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:NotifyTranslators for fr, he, ja, ko, vi, and zh. We already have bn (and ar) translations for that page. Getting the translated sample page out of mw.org and into Patchdemo is probably going to take about an hour per page, mostly because the time stamps have to be changed so that they match whatever the local time is for the wiki that we're using.

In the discussion at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Wq2ekwwt65nu3mp2 Valereee has suggested making the warnings about edit conflicts be opt-in, and specifically that they be turned off for new editors. The benefit to new editors (<100 edits, so 99% of accounts?) is likely to be much lower, and the anxiety about what's going on (did I break something? Am I doing this wrong?) is likely to be higher.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T302681: Populate Topic Container patchdemo prototype with Arabic strings for UI Elements .

I've added three strings to a test-Patch-Demo site. They seem to work, but I need @Dyolf77_WMF or another Arabic speaker to figure out if I did it correctly.

The opposite of this (force the reply tool to appear, even if it's in the "wrong" namespace) has also been requested.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T302682: Populate Topic Container patchdemo prototype with example ar.wiki talk pages.

I've started a basic talk page at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Sample_discussion Once it seems like it covers everything we need, then we can translate it. The extracted copies (in whole or in part) can be pasted anywhere we want to test.

2022-02-02T18:51:00.000Z is easier to recognize as containing a date than 20220202185100. 2022-02-02T18:51 would be even easier.
