Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T203014: Copyediting CE Insights report.

BTW, this was about 20,000 words altogether. For future planning, it would be reasonably fair to expect that copyediting that amount of text will take 15 to 20 hours.

@JJMC89, these templates seem to have been imported to several wikis. There's a list at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q52154408 I don't think any of these are in use, however. I wonder whether any other templates have the same complications?

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T187342: The limited list of suggested categories don't ease categories searching.

I'm a little surprised by the decision to close this without any action, or even merging it to a related one. Category search is currently difficult for editors. Declaring categories to be "niche" and closing the request for improvements doesn't make the actual problem disappear.

@Whatamidoing-WMF : (just talking for myself) as long as there's a week or more to make sure we can get everything working, I think it should be fine. Anytime after the 8th of October would be even easier for me.

Whatamidoing-WMF updated subscribers of T196211: Deploy CollabPad to officewiki.

This kind of multi-person, real-time editing might be useful for edit-a-thons and student groups, too. Education programs could work together on a draft (e.g., in userspace) before editing anything in the mainspace. Edit-a-thon organizers would probably appreciate the ability to jump in, see what's happening, and fix it "mid-edit". @Ragesoss, have you looked at this? It's sort of like EtherPad, but with VisualEditor and therefore able to output wikitext.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T202302: English prefixes for namespaces work in other languages, but not the other way around. Ex: "File:Image.jpg" vs "Bild:image.jpg".

To avoid practical complications (e.g., the RecentChanges patrollers are confused because |thumb appears in dozens of languages and they can't know which ones will work and which ones are nonsense/typos), I wonder whether the namespaces/wikitext codes could be autotransformed upon save, so that you can type [[Bild:Image.jpg]] into enwiki, but it would still save as [[File:Image.jpg]].

At the moment, I'm leaning towards having [[?oldid=851713451]] work as valid link syntax. Then we could get rid of {{oldid}}-type templates, and it would be easy to link to previous revisions everywhere. However, perhaps it would create problems that I haven't thought of yet.

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T200476: Table row height in the VisualEditor is increased before editing cells, and after editing in VisualDiff.

It's occurred to me that the extra height might be intentional, i.e., to make room for the highlighting that should be present but is missing. If that's the case, then this could be closed as Declined and the problem with new content not being highlighted can be merged to one about diffing tables (or this one re-titled and re-purposed for that).

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T161278: Add default gadget styling to Parsoid's output.

I looked at https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mir?veaction=editsource in the 2017WTE preview (Parsoid) and the saved page. While the two aren't absolutely identical (e.g., the white space in the infobox is slightly different), I didn't see anything that actually looked broken. Is that expected, or has this problem somehow gotten better since this task was created ~16 months ago?

@Deskana, is this a duplicate of T59302: Suggest case insensitive results when searching for categories to add?

Whatamidoing-WMF updated subscribers of T193438: CL support for addressing linter errors on large wikis.

Ukwiki is down to about 4,000 mainspace errors total. This means that someone has done a HUGE amount of work in the last few days. Ptwiki and zhwiki both still have at least one category with more than 10K errors. Srwiki is now the third-worst situation, with a total of about 10K errors across all categories. Arwiki and viwiki have more than 5K errors

You can translate the labels by going to this link: https://sd.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=سانچو:Cite_journal/دستاويز&action=edit&section=T-2 and clicking the "Manage TemplateData" button at the top. Click on any of the "Template Parameters" to see the details. Translate any item that is marked (sd) but is still in English. Save the page when you're done. It will take a while, but it's not complicated.
