I'll be interested in participating in this small wiki toolkit hackathon. At the Cantonese Wikipedia we've been trying to build bots to generate league tables of best contributors and automate some routine maintenance, and it'll be nice to see whether other wikis have done similar things so we don't repeat ourselves.

Thanks. I take your word for it that editing a section on the same page
will be *faster* than loading the section editor on a fresh screen. The
design intent is to reduce client load by putting as little of the page as
practical in edit mode.

Hello @deryckchan, and thanks for creating this task!
We're actually considering this for the year to come, but before starting developping anything, we need to understand better what people would like to do with the data, how they would like to display it on their wiki, what kind of Lua functions they would need.

deryckchan added a comment to T199616: No clear indication of what spelling variant is.

The spelling variant ambiguity caused a knock-on problem: a number of property proposals for phonetic transcriptions (for languages whose orthography doesn't give much information about pronunciation, e.g. Chinese) have been rejected with reasons along the lines of "they should be spelling variants". Some clarity is needed on this.

Thanks James, that sounds reasonable. I think Ryan's proposal is a fine

that are reused elsewhere on the page, preventing them from being deleted.

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

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?

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).

@Roy17 has done a few tests in his userspace and saw that most websites failed to generate, including ones like BBC which usually work on en.wp. Have we missed some configurations?

deryckchan updated subscribers of T188620: enable citoid on zh-yue.wiki.

Actually it seems that all 5 "trunk" citation templates (citation, cite news, cite web, cite journal, cite book) are used by articles on yue.wp. @William915 and @shinjiman imported the whole Module:Citation and the standard templates. So I guess the question is, what's the fastest way to get the other settings ready (I've already done Citoid-template-type-map.json and Visualeditor-cite-tool-definition.json| earlier this week) for Citoid to start working.

deryckchan updated subscribers of T32392: zh-yue.wikipedia should use English namespace names as well as Wikipedia/Wikipedia_talk for NS_PROJECT[_TALK].

@siebrand : @HenryLi raised the same question as he did back in 2011: Is it possible to localize the colon (:) that separates the namespace name from the page name, into a different character preferred by the local 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.

Just to give you all a heads up that there's currently a discussion at yue.wp discussing the possibility of localizing the namespace names. If there's a consensus to localize them, I'll come back with the full set of localized namespace names that we agree on.

Current common practice is that TOTP clients (notably Google Authenticator) don't store the two-factor secret key in a way that allows it to be displayed back to the user.

{{citation needed}} :) I doubt that's even technically possible.

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.

deryckchan added a comment to T145535: language code disparity (Wikidata tracking).

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.

I'd be interested in getting some actual "evidence" or what other people do - Google, Facebook, Twitter et al. How they let users handle it. See what works, what doesn't work

deryckchan added a comment to T172079: Allow OATHAuth users with 2FA already enabled to add / switch devices without disabling.

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

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?

A note on security: There is no additional security risk in displaying the QR code and the scratch codes again, because an existing TOTP token is required for the user to view the codes.

Where's the citation that there is no additional risk?
