"MediaWiki has so many features that it's often extremely hard for devs to understand on their own what's really important / has a true impact on any given wiki/community (it is even for wiki regulars on wikis they don't know). If you don't document, describe and argue for the needs of your wiki, nobody will do it for you. ;-)" -- Nemo_bis, T17434#196769

Xeriphas1994 added a comment to T188829: Special:WhatLinksHere should detect links inside <option> tags.

@Umherirrender, thank you for that idea. It genuinely seems like it should work, but it doesn't. In fact, no options rendered at all until I made the same change to <choose>, which restored rendering but didn't affect the original issue.

How embarrassing. Yes, it is the RandomSelection extension. Sorry about that -- somehow I remembered it as a non-standard but widely supported HTML tag.

Xeriphas1994 added a comment to T187752: Make hard limit of 5000 query results into a config variable.

Uh... that was meant sincerely. I have had submissions declined instantly in other organizations for skipping a single sub-bullet in the instructions. Point taken however; it won't happen again.

Sorry, I thought that was obvious from the tags. You get a cupcake for not simply closing it as malformed.

Xeriphas1994 added a comment to T187630: Deleting an interwiki prefix should be undoable.

I don't remember. It happened right after an upgrade and we didn't document everything because we were fighting fires. It might have been MediaWiki 1.24.

Restricted Application updated subscribers of T36984: Edit summaries length should have a countdown for remaining characters.

Usability bonus: the countdown's max value could account for autogenerated text which will be prepended or appended during save (e.g. manual undo, tagging, section title).
