Xaosflux removed a project from T256758: Safari creates phone links for numbers in format ###-####: MediaWiki-Interface.

This fix really should be on the browser side, phone numbers are normally written with a hyphen ("-", 0x2D) while in articles such as the example above with date ranges we normally use the en-dash ("–", 0x2013). Apple probably shouldn't be doing phone number translations on en dashes.

Xaosflux added a comment to T254485: Regression: Wikidata item missing in Monobook (WikibaseClient should use the SidebarBeforeOutput hook instead of BaseTemplateToolbox).

I'm not saying that is an overwhelming amount of feedback - but it is user feedback, there are only 14 subscribers on this task as well. Some of the feedback is that links to wikidata aren't as useful for readers as they are for editors, as wikidata isn't really reader content; but it is very useful as a tool for editors that incorporate the data in to the presentation content.

@Mooeypoo partial blocks already support blocking editing/creating as an action; and most projects will speedily delete pages that copy-and-paste as copyright issues. This is solely about the permission, as there have been instances where users are disruptive - but only about using the 'move' function - where prior to partial blocks would have been remedied with a traditional site block.

Xaosflux added a comment to T92795: Users without 'editcontentmodel' user right cannot create MassMessage delivery lists.

So this is still stalled on idealistic concerns? @Vogone "I believe this restriction is harmful. It forbids users requesting a mass message delivery for their project to take advantage of this formatting option." ? My suggestion was that people that can send mass messages should be allowed to create mass message lists, and that is an improvement over the current state. How is making it incrementally better worse off then just blocking action? Additionally, any project could just add the editcontentmodel right to the 'users' group if they really wanted anyone to be able to just edit any content model. I'm even open to making a permission for Special:CreateMassMessageList, and a project could give it to mass-message-senders, or even 'users' if they really wanted to.

Xaosflux added a comment to T248294: Separate permission for creating a page with a custom content model.

As with T92795, I don't think this should be a special user-right per-se, just that the workflows should be fixed to automatically do this in appropriate cases. Just as if someone creates a template:x/style.css it is in s-css; they should be able to use the createmailinglist tool to create a page in MMS style.

Xaosflux added a comment to T8883: Allow page-specific inclusion of <script>s, etc. in header.

This issue is coming up repeatedly still, when enhanced functionality is only needed on one page that is directly visited. If the page is visited by a link, the ?withJS link directive solve the challenge mostly, but doesn't work when visiting the page. Very hacky gadgets have been used where the gadget runs by default and checks every single page "am I on this one special page, if so run this script" - needlessly running that on every page. While gadgets work for things that are highly repeated well, minor cases still suffer. Would like to see this get implemented along the lines of <templatestyles>, and would be fine with keeping the same restrictions on ?withJS (i.e. file must be in the MediaWiki space).

OK, so I think it is confirmed that this has nothing at all to do with OS, which you absolutely can be a member of without being a member of sysop and has no nested review permissions; so this is still the original problem, that sometimes people with review permissions (such as reviwers and sysops on enwiki) are intermittently failing.

@DougWeller, I'm a bit lost in your comment. On enwiki at least, accepting pending changes is part of the (review) permission, this is included in the "administrators" (sysop) group and the "pending changes reviewers" (reviewer) group. I can't see what this has to do in the least with oversight and even further from what it would have to do with checkuser. It is very certainly possible to be a member of both the CU and OS group and not have access to "review" just as you wouldn't have access to many other functions.

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.

This is appearing on enwiki, we have local discussions and support for this - and are still actually working on our policies for it, so would probably be better to direct our admins to our local discussion.

Xaosflux added a comment to T190349: Allow users to be blocked from editing pages within a specific category.

I think the bigger issue here is that this feature would allow anyone, even IP editors, to "extend" someone elses block to any page.

Xaosflux added a comment to T242884: Add commonswiki as a transwiki importsource on enwiki.

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 T242823: Revdel: Don't allow revision deleting part of a deleted page.

@Amorymeltzer:
If revision has a revdel'd summary, researches can not normally view it - however, if the entire page is then also deleted, researches can view the revdeled edit summary. The same is for revdel'd usernames.
