Xaosflux assigned T291233: MobileFrontend errors out when attempting to view contributions for IP editors to xSavitar.

Xaosflux added a comment to T291233: MobileFrontend errors out when attempting to view contributions for IP editors.

I believe that is what is expected, for any testing it may be useful if you can validate that contributions actually appear if they exist (on your test bed have at least 1 edit by an IP, then look at that IP's contribution while using non-advanced mobilefrontend view)

Xaosflux added a comment to T229818: [AMC] Consider making 'User Profile' preferences accessible via mobile Settings .

@alexhollender , yes something like that may be even better, but that requires a software change as no interface messages have been exposed for local project customization there - a "footer" message for example could be used. My example is somewhat abusing the "advanced options" long description field (when all you have is a hammer....)

Xaosflux added a comment to T271588: Add .mw-parser-output as a potential selector.

Those use cases could maybe also be solved with something along the "header" and "footer" type elements that are in wikisource pages maybe? The use cases being described aren't really so much about styling that element, but being able to have have a section above and below the wikitext that isn't disturbed by editing the primary wikitext; such section could certainly still be wikitext itself.

What a strange proposal here. WMF should just implement the sensible option everyone is waiting for for years already, namely, that a user who doesn't have 2FA can't be granted 2FA-requiring rights or is prevented from exercising them (and loses them when he disables 2FA).

I assume there are legitimate reasons for this, along the lines of: 1) nothing is making bureaucrats check to make sure 2FA is enabled for interface admins before granting 2) bureaucrats also are not required to have 2FA at present.

But I can guarantee you that a sudden deployment like this with no communication/community discussion is going to generate a lot of pushback, and for very good reason.

I'm not totally sold on bold. These links should be de-emphasized, not emphasized, because we've chosen to hide the content associated from view (i.e. don't want people to go investigating because they notice that one of the non-links was bolded). Grey seems okay and the strikeout of course also seems fine.

@Krinkle forgive me if I misread you, but if your suggestion is to load common.js up with a list of conditionals for "if page = x" or "if page contains x" for any page this could be desired on that seems like a lot of overhead, not to mention scalability, as this would have to run on every single page view - am I missing something there? How is this not equivalent to templatestyles vs common.css?

All these issues can be resolved on wiki. But you've to talk to the enwiki community first to even see whether they agree those perceived problems exist.
If they do, the landing page can be revamped. That's easily doable via templates or js. The extensions main purpose is to intercept and redirect without defining what that landing page contains. It does that job perfectly, and I don't think hardcoding is a good idea here.

if it is only partially done, then either retitle it to what is open and spin off tasks for what remains, or keep it open and prob still make said subtasks?

Yes, I meant action=protect; the problem is on the UI page for that control

@DannyS712 I think you may have done some related work? I actually though that this was possible in the past? I see that the very similar T22399 has also been ignored for 7 years, preventing any way to unpatrol a page at all - at least the unreview function exists, but seems to be excessively restricted.

Maybe just the bold by default, if it has a unique class associated users or projects can always add extra decoration.

Xaosflux added a comment to T279979: Login fails on iPhone when username has quote / apostrophe in it.

OK, as long as it is closed - needed - the instance of the user incident ("I can not log in") was resolved by them correcting their input error. There are no mediawiki or WMF errors here; that we don't really have user experience incident tickets tracked would be the difference I suppose.

Per https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)&oldid=1017565531#Can't_log_in_with_Safari_on_iOS this seemed to be a user issue, inputting the wrong password. Seems to be related to the keyboard settings on their device confusing them as to which character they were sending.

bold+emp+strike seems fine (see https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Xaosflux/sandbox100&action=history) (enwiki OS required to see differences - or rather lack of them)
