Yair_rand added a comment to T190015: Create separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JavaScript that does not include administrators by default.

The developers are a continuing massive security risk, and one that is only being kept in check by these "vulnerabilities" that this plans to "fix". We've had confrontations in the past that only failed to be catastrophic because the WMF doesn't actually have the technical ability to stop people from editing JS. Control over the site can't be easily decoupled from powers necessary for basic maintenance, so the WMF and the developers can't seize power without causing everything to fall apart.

Yair_rand added a comment to T128248: Wikimedia logos should be updated for consistency.

IIRC, this has been discussed extensively over the past 13 years or so, with the general conclusion being that this would be a bad idea. Also, Phabricator is really the wrong place for this discussion.

@Yair_rand - this deployment only refers to behavior for logged-out users.

A week isn't long enough to gather consensus for enabling it for logged-out users either. There isn't a separate shorter process for different classes of users, and limiting it to logged-out users doesn't make it okay to defy consensus.

@ovasileva @CKoerner_WMF I'm sorry, but your posts are both somewhat ambiguous and I'm having trouble understanding exactly what the plan is. Is the intention to post a summary of the bugs that have been fixed, and then launch a new RfC on whether to enable the feature? Or just post the summary, request some feedback/bug reports, and wait to see if someone there starts an RfC to enable it?

Yair_rand added a comment to T184025: Default deletion log for Wikidata items doesn't include label.

@Izno This is not the same as either of those, though it does deal with a related issue. The default contents of the log summary box can be changed by the deleting admin, and do not prevent hiding of information. Since there's no issue of the admin being unable to hide certain content, and there aren't substantial technical barriers here, the problems with the other two tasks don't apply.

Yair_rand added a comment to T184025: Default deletion log for Wikidata items doesn't include label.

@Sjoerddebruin The way that's handled for other types of pages is for the deleting admin to manually remove any problematic text from the deletion summary. Seems like that would work here as well.

inform enwiki and dewiki communities of upcoming page previews deployment

Enwiki already knows about page previews, and had a lengthy discussion rejecting it for the time being... Given that, I would think that any informing of a deployment would go in the other direction, from the community to the developers. Or is this talking about just the addition of some new features to the beta feature, while keeping it in beta?

Yair_rand added a comment to T39865: Add ability to bind pages together.

A bunch of useful things that could fall under "binding" pages:

  • Groups of pages should be able to be added to a watchlist at once. When new pages are added to the group, the new pages should automatically be added to the watchlist.
  • Joint history pages, showing all changes to all pages in the group.
    • Currently, in some situations, editors have just added a separate page with links to each contained page, and then used Special:RelatedChanges to track things. Very inconvenient.
  • Grouped edits. Users should be able to edit multiple pages within the group at once, which would be saved simultaneously, and would ideally appear as one edit in the group history page.
    • User should also be able to preview pages including changes to transcluded pages in the group while editing the group. That is, if a group contains Page1 and Page2, and Page1 transcludes Page2, editing Page2 and previewing Page1 should include Page2's changes.
  • Renaming, protecting, and deleting groups of pages is quite a hassle at the moment. These should be possible to do as a group.

It's unclear if this is talking about the selection of languages around the globe, or the article counts. After some discussion, the numbers around the globe were removed entirely a few months ago. The raw article counts were considered to be uninformative and/or misleading. The language selection was fixed around the same time.

I doint think this will be supported as git requires there be a repository. Which the pages on Wikipedia are not. Wikipedia also uses a db not git.

The idea is to generate a repository based off a wiki page on-demand, which would be reflected in both directions.

Yair_rand added a comment to T155973: Complex query result configuration options.

So I would like to implement something like:

Which would allow you to pass options to default view.

One issue with that: How would it handle settings spanning multiple lines? "#" only comments out one line, and if settings get large/complicated enough to be unwieldy without line breaks, having the constraint could be a problem.

Yair_rand added a comment to T150417: Allow users to code in localized programming languages.

Note that parser functions already are localized, despite this meaning that they can't be carried across wikis. Lua could be both localized and transwikiable, given that code editing is already in a separate type of environment. Lua was supposed to be the successor to the piles of parser functions, but if it can only be edited by English speakers, then the many communities may need to fall back to parserfunctions.

Are you sure that parser functions are localized? The magic keywords are, but in the parserfunctions extension, I see no way to use translated keywords for the parser in the repository. The only localized things I found was error messages.

I don't know where the translations are stored, but they definitely work. Try {{#se:1|2|3}} on eowiki, or {{#זמן:Y}} on hewiki, and they work exactly as expected.

This is the same thing as these, right? Does this task need updating?

Restricted Application updated subscribers of T6717: Change the history view to accommodate larger edit summaries.

I don't think this is really necessary. Edit summaries aren't supposed to be very long. If the edit summary length issues are fixed, there will still probably be a fairly low maximum size for edit summaries, although we might have saner rules than measuring by byte counts, which wouldn't affect the actual visual size. (IMO, all unicode characters should count as 1 letter, and link targets shouldn't be counted at all, so "[[Page target|Word]]" should only count as four letters.)

Thread is now archived. The thread and demo script didn't get as much response as I would have liked, but I still think this general style of change list appearance would be a substantial improvement over the current style.

Yair_rand added a comment to T125171: [Catwatch] Filter for Watch edits which add or remove pages from a category.

This should probably have an option on both the watchlist itself and the "Watchlist" section of preferences, similar to the minor edits/bot edits/my edits/anonymous edits/logged in edits/Wikidata edits options.

I tried on a dozen or so different articles, using "Random article". Same error on all of them. This was on the English Wikipedia.

Is this really necessary on Wikidata? Couldn't we just have the links' titles include the description, like they do on RC, history pages, and watchlists?

Yair_rand added a comment to T102749: [Task] Implement "Value only constraint".

Some properties should only be used either as a value or as a source, but we don't have a constraint for that yet. Maybe instead of having special value only/qualifier only/source only constraints, there should just be one constraint that specifies which of the three should or shouldn't be allowed.
