Yair_rand added a comment to T85838: Add a way to stop animated GIFs.
In T85838#955948, @Tgr wrote:

There is no such thing as stopping an animated image per se (some browsers expose the functionality to users - e.g. in IE you can press ESC to stop all animation - and others expose it to browser plugins but none that I know of exposes it to web pages); the closest thing that can be done is to remove the animated image and replace it with a snapshot. And to do that we either need to add functionality to MediaWiki to generate such snapshots, or you have to create a snapshot on the fly on the client-side (possible with canvas, e.g. giffer does it; no IE8 support but you don't have to download an extra image).

For the records, it's the website of the Foundation, not of the movement. And IMO such entities are free to use whatever works for them - for example, I don't see "source code" for https://www.wikimedia.de/ either. Please move such high-level discussion to a talk page like https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Foundation_wiki_feedback or https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_Foundation_website as it's not about German text on an English website.

T135963 is relevant, I think? If the plan is to completely remove inline JS everywhere, CentralNotice's JS system will need to be reworked anyway, as the current system is to have all JS inline, I think. (Including using copy-pasted code for the close button, IIRC.)

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.

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?

@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.

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.

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.

I feel like this topic needs a reminder of certain important requirements for content-creation extensions: specifically, that all user actions be sufficiently visible (project logs, user logs), and that all additions can be modified/deleted.

Yair_rand added a comment to T126825: Sections on mobile views jumps around after load (FOUC).

Suggestion: Use <details> and <summary> elements to have native no-javascript collapsing of sections (avoiding FOUC), and then add a JS fallback for the few non-supporting browsers (Opera mini, IE mobile). This reduces the problem to a much smaller set of users.

I think we should pay attention to some works on this wiki, which implemented vertical writing modes on their pages:

Wp/ase's most visible CSS was just rotated manually, as a temporary measure until CSSJanus is working for vertical writing modes.
