Xaosflux added a comment to T197489: Allow filtering categories by namespace.

Agree, this shouldn't require a community buy in as long as the default was still "all pages" - adding a "filter" option (perhaps a collapsed one like in user contributions) would be non-intrusive to readers and could certainly be developed in stages. This would only be an output display filter, not actually changing categorizations. Suggest "namespaces" be tackled first as that seems to have the widest utility.

The where isn't super important - as long as it is well advertised and attended. So if you put it at VPR, advertise it at VPT, AN, WT:RFPI, T:CENT for example. This isn't a really big deal that would need site notices, or voter invitations though.

Xaosflux added a comment to T221922: MassMessage fails to respect a user's partial block.

Just like my comment in T194529, I think this may be better dealt with with an overall "actions" list for partial blocks. Currently we have a couple of actions that someone can be blocked against (createaccount, sendemail) - why not have more - which should solve other tickets as well? UPLOAD and MOVE seem like ideal early candidates. massmessage really is a limited offering, so I'm not too concerned with this "loophole" - but the concept could use the same enforcement mechanics perhaps?

Xaosflux added a comment to T242089: Consider keeping user entered URL and removing tracking parameters .

@Mvolz in T210871 the problem isn't so much about "removing parameters" but it seems to be that the process is following third party redirects and then replacing the entire path (and coincidentally in the example it is resulting in adding parameters). In replacing the entire path, editorial control of references is being lost (and in the example also results in a references that is useless for readers and editors)

Xaosflux added a comment to T238483: Special:NewPages - allow hiding pages created by users when non-users can create talk pages.

It's non-default, and only run if someone actually tries to run it, but would mean that the page is always consistently laid out (as far as displaying it). As far as should a query that someone is specifically asking to be run - be run why not? Do we really need a shortcut (that as noted isn't going to always be accurate) to bypass this? We don't put what-if-shortcuts on the rest of the controls there. (e.g. If a project removed the bot permission, or auto\patrol permission from all groups - we don't check for that and hide those links)

Xaosflux added a comment to T238483: Special:NewPages - allow hiding pages created by users when non-users can create talk pages.

What I'm saying is that when viewing Special:NewPages, the control that uses the "MediaWiki:Rcshowhideliu" label should always be present, it shouldn't be added and removed based on the current set of permissions on a project. It isn't a bad thing that clicking "hide registered users" would produce no results. The permissions of * could have just changed 1 second ago. Additionally, regardless of if the control is displaying on the page or not, the control should actually function if called - resulting in no results if there do not currently happen to be any.

Xaosflux added a comment to T238483: Special:NewPages - allow hiding pages created by users when non-users can create talk pages.

@DannyS712 as far as the change goes, available permissions can change at anytime, so this filter shouldn't appear or not appear based on the current permission mapping. The expected result should simply be that there are no results if there are no results - this keeps the behavior consistent across all instances.

Different problem. The issue there is that the mobile talk pages are optimised for pages with headings and sections. If the content is wrapped inside a div it cannot be parsed so unexpected things like this happen. In this situation we should eiither default to read as wiki page or display some kind of notice to explain. The page attempts to make talk pages more consistent for new users so possibly the latter.

Xaosflux added a comment to T197087: Remove or limit edituserjs and similar rights from users with "higher" access than the editor.

So to move forward on this - is there actually a current way to define that one "user ... has more permission" than another? What would this even be based on? Being able to add a user to "group x" can be added to any group. If this is not done, is there a task for it (which would be blocking this one)?

Xaosflux added a comment to T33332: Provide a way to set the initial sort for sortable tables.

Thanks @TheDJ so it sounds like at the least this is blocked pending other future development - but not necessarily reason to never do it.

@Izno can you expand on why doing this server-side is a problem?

Agree - this is really a feature request more than a bug, but it has been wanted for a long time.

Xaosflux added a comment to T237709: Cannot view diffs on Special:Undelete - ends in InvalidArgumentException.

I note that this was intended to have a fix, but I'm still receiving the same error on the English Wikipedia.
