deryckchan added a comment to T50429: [Epic] Support editing parts of a page in VisualEditor-MediaWiki.

Thanks James, that sounds reasonable. I think Ryan's proposal is a fine
solution - we can allow sections to be edited while freezing references
that are reused elsewhere on the page, preventing them from being deleted.

Currently the main blocker (although it may not be a hard blocker) is parsing support for managing state that is page-level (mainly for reference management). @dchan is exploring doing some of the subtree editing business on the client side as something of a stop-gap solution. The Parsing team's work on server-side ref management will probably be a better long-term solution (see T146072). They are hoping to have that work wrapped before the end of 2018. Anything to add @ssastry, @dchan, @DLynch, @Esanders?

Great. It looks like the bot hasn't edited anything since last week's tests

deryckchan added a comment to T199523: Expose Machine Translation services supporting Chinese to closer languages/variants.

I agree with the comments above that until a separate machine translation engine is available for Cantonese, it can be useful to display a machine translation from a non-Sinosphere language to Modern Standard Written Chinese (MSWC) when the target language is Cantonese. This is because Cantonese and Mandarin share the vast majority of technical vocabulary; the lexical similarity rises when one considers MSWC which actually incorporates significant amounts of Cantonese vocabulary. In addition, the fact that most existing machine translation engines don't distinguish between the different kinds of Chinese languages means that the machine translations themselves are somewhat influenced by Cantonese anyway (being treated as a subset of Chinese rather than a standalone language).

In the case of Cantonese (and CJK in general) it'll be useful to have full-width colon (:) as an alias of the colon so we don't need to switch input methods twice when typing any page name with a namespace name.

Something seems to be missing here - you can enroll as many devices as you want, at any time with us - provided you store your two-factor secret key. That key can be re-used in the future to initialize more authentication clients at any time. So this is already information that the users have, though hopefully if they store it they store it safely. That being said, being able to access it online after re authenticating with 2FA seems fine to me.

A number of these requests involve renaming wikis where both the old name and the preferred name refer uniquely to one wiki, e.g. zh-yue => yue, zh-classical => lzh. Is it possible that in the meantime, searching for these in the Wikidata editing interface will return the existing database name? e.g. when I want to add a sitelink to yue.wp, I should be able to find it by typing "yue" in addition to typing "zh-".

(3) doesn't concern the vast majority of requests because the old URLs would be kept as domain name and interwiki aliases.
e.g. [[yue:頭版]] and https://yue.wikipedia.org/wiki/頭版 already work, but they redirect to https://zh-yue.wikipedia.org/wiki/頭版 and the rename request simply reverses these redirects.

There are questions here whether we use the same seed on multiple devices (if we give the users a way to add multiple devices. Obviously, at original setup time they can share it with the world if they want (not recommended!) or install it on 1000 devices. Nothing to stop them doing that)...

lolz.

Certainly, this task has merit, Special:OATH should be some sort of "menu", with various options that will probably need an extra OTP entering, allowing things like disabling completely, changing device, regenerating scratch tokens without changing device etc etc

deryckchan added a comment to T172079: Special:OATH should go to 2FA setup, not just disable.

T150601 is a much better option than showing users the old scratch tokens again!

I agree on the principle that the best way forward is to separate the functionality for

  1. disable OATH;
  2. add new TOTP devices without needing to reset existing TOTP devices and scratch codes; and
  3. regenerate scratch codes without needing to reset existing TOTP devices.

    But that's a bigger functionality change and the quick-fix most OATH-enabled users need for now is to let an OATH-enabled user see their OATH config page again without disabling OATH first.

But, we shouldn't allow people to add extra/new devices, without having their original device, or a scratch token. Otherwise you're just creating a security hole.

What would we do if the OTP were stored in a way that it wasn't possible to get them back?

deryckchan reassigned T159048: reset admin password for Wikimania-l from deryckchan to RobH.

I've ascertained that as of last week, neither @Phoebe nor Simon Shek knew the admin password, and none of the moderators knew the moderator password.

I noticed that the date format has recently changed from "25 九月 1997" to "25 9 1997". Is work being done on the date formatting? And are we close to getting ISO dates or language-formatted dates?

I'll wait another week for the admins and other moderators to reply and let me know if they can get in. If not then I'll ask you for a moderator reset.

Were the moderator passwords reset in the 2015 global password reset?

@deryckchan: You are listed as a moderator for this mailing list, NOT a list administrator. So you wouldn't have received the password reset email.

deryckchan reopened T159048: reset admin password for Wikimania-l as "Open".

Hi @RobH . Another Wikimania has happened and it turned out that this issue remains unresolved, because @Phoebe and I are still receiving wikimania-l bounce emails but still don't have the administrator password.

  • 12 of the 423 languages and language-variants MediaWiki currently supports name their default date format "ymd". These languages are namely crh (including variants), hu, kaa, and kk (including variants). We could disable the localization for these languages and display raw ISO dates instead. Users will not get better localization by doing so. But the order will be the same as the users expect. We might assume users being used to any kind of "ymd" ordering are less confused by "2017-11-10", even if it will be entirely unlocalized until we support full localization.
  • About 20 more languages specify default date formats that start with the year, but are not named "ymd". Most notably gan, ko, and zh, including all their variants. We might add these to a blacklist and display raw ISO dates as well.
  • We might add other languages to the same blacklist if requested and ISO is proven to be less confusing for native speakers.

There is no reason to do the actual opposite of what this ticket asks for. No matter what the users language is, everybody can distinguish day, month and year in "10 November 2017". But we can not assume everybody understands what the month in "2017-11-10" is. This is actually the 11th of October in certain regions of the world.

@deryckchan, The formatted date is what appears in the edit field. We do not want to show the unformated YYYY-MM-DD there as this would be even more confusing, so we show it formatted.

To clarify, this ticket is about displaying and outputting dates in the language-appropriate format.

Thanks for doing this. I'd like to suggest that the "Configure" link be anchored to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Navigating_Wikidata/User_Options#Babel_extension to direct the user straight to relevant instructions.
