Xaosflux added a comment to T223429: Use monospaced font for diffs of css/js/scribunto pages.

@SD0001 , At the very least, this should be done with CSS in the page source - not with javascript to insert the styling.

Xaosflux added a comment to T221887: Ignore css in displaytitle when $wgRestrictDisplayTitle is enabled.

@Pppery note, mediawiki in general supports most anything in display title if you enable displaytitle, if you do then you can also optionally lock it down - this ticket is only about locking it down. Individual WMF projects can certainly pick to enable or not enable lockdown. Perhaps a tangential task would be for something like a parameter to enforce in , or exempt in certain namespaces (if you'd want to go that route please open a different task though).

@Volker_E almost all of the feedback is that there is much wasted horizontal space. The collapsing may be nice as well, but why the insistence on making this such a long vertical form when there is screen real estate available?

Xaosflux added a comment to T107069: Convert HistoryAction.php to use OOUI and MW's new DateInputWidget.

All that wasted horizontal area, combined with the much longer vertical usage seems to be the main complaint here, not so much the box decorations, if space is limited sure let it scroll to multiple lines, but when there is plenty of space to the right, use it. I'm certainly not looking forward this this same design layout coming to watchlists either.

The example in the description showed all elements side by side, now there are huge gaps and the vertical layout makes this take up about a third of the screen.

@Iniquity I don't think anything was actually done here - some related discussion would be to make use of TAGS

This appears to be working correctly, it is still collecting additional characters to resolve mutli-letter conflicts.

@Anomie that bot (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/TheSandBot) hasn't made any moves in a month.

Just got again on enwiki when trying to delete as part of this move: (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Gadget-defaultsummaries.js&diff=prev&oldid=877868868) , was able to manually delete the target and proceed.

Xaosflux added a comment to T213003: Autoconfirmed rights set by extensions are out of sync with confirmed.

Testing notes (may need another task) - users without createpagemainns ARE able to create these pages if they initialize a page in another namespace, then use the MOVE process - this seems like it should be a security violation.

Xaosflux added a comment to T210915: "Mark as patrolled" should ask for confirmation like the "Thanks", "Rollback", etc. links.

No please by default, but perhaps an opt-in confirmation if people really want it. Don't slow down workflows.

On enwiki, we just purposefully granted an account this combination, I suspect the other projects have as well.
