Xaosflux added a comment to T234450: Some Special:Contributions requests cause "Error: 0" from database or WMFTimeoutException.

I think @Green_Cardamom is suggesting a userland "tool" (likely client-side javascript API shunt) to workaround this new limitation, such would not have any sort of direct database access?

Xaosflux added a comment to T233649: Stray semicolons in RecentChanges, Watchlist, History and Contributions interface.

Regarding "but doing so makes the page inconsistent with the recent changes page " - wasn't this also just added? The semicolon is unnecessary on this page as well. And also it doesn't seem to be "after the title" but actually "before the date" which makes even less sense to precede a timestamp with "; ". These elements are already distinct.

@Ammarpad @Masumrezarock100 no no they should be according to our current workflow, not a complaint on your part! Just a general complaint about phabricator. For example if a ticket has a parent/child relationship, and is merged - the other ticket (generally the earlier of the duplicates) doesn't inherit that linkage.

Agree with the anything is better - but If you want a direction, I'd section @PamD 's idea. Putting it in (Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-echo) would put it near the other similar control, perhaps "Muted pages". Note, since this area looks integrated with global pages, you may need to store the entire page value in there (e.g. :w:en:Project:Pagename) (as opposed to "users" that are already global things)

Xaosflux added a comment to T18791: Don't offer meaningless protection levels (e.g., move=autoconfirmed with moves restricted to autoconfirmed).

"move" might be added or removed from any group in the future, and such a change shouldn't have to require page level protections be adjusted again.

@Trizek-WMF I suggest including this activity in the preceding https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News ; while it is "only" impacting one project , I've seen that often other projects build dependencies on enwiki components.

Xaosflux added a comment to T235107: Change tags disclose non-public information about editors.

@MusikAnimal I don't think the potential privacy concern follows to the use cases where an editor uses a custom editing tool to make their edits - in those cases the editor is purposefully asserting the tag with their edits.

Xaosflux added a comment to T150526: BotPasswords: grant all rights.

I don't see any problem with letting botpasswords not filter out an access you don't currently have on an account - since that can change and you wouldn't have to change the botpasswords setting again.

Xaosflux added a comment to T150526: BotPasswords: grant all rights.

@DannyS712 can you expand a bit more on the mechanics you are proposing? BotPasswords doesn't "grant" any permissions itself, it is used as a filter to limit which permissions of an account a specific session can use (with "deny all" being the implicit 'last rule'). The problem reported above is that some permissions are not available to "permit X". Exposing every possible permission to botpasswords would fix this, and allow for an account owner to only permit exactly what they need - but how would that "simplify the interface" ?

Xaosflux added a comment to T234071: After requeueing a page, define behaviour for creator [medium].

From merged: T234067, this is creating a dead-end workflow in the webui. Those with (patrol) access should not be barred from marking reviewed even if they are the creator.

Xaosflux added a comment to T225984: Allow defining account creation limits for specific groups (e.g. extended-confirmed accounts).

Is any work continuing on this? With issues like T230521 coming up again having more established users (e.g. "extendedconfirmed") not get hit with the default limit would be useful.

Xaosflux added a comment to T230521: Users are unable to create more than 2 accounts per day.

@Urbanecm thank you for the initial response. For the first part, trying to determine if this is being proactively managed by WMF staff or volunteers - as employees are more expected to respond than volunteers. Recently when such a mitigation was deployed (T212667) the temporary measure persisted for 6+ months (you were one of the volunteers asking up on why it was not being acted on if I read right!).
