Is someone still working on this? I imagine, that this should be a very small hack, or am I wrong?

doctaxon added a comment to T25310: Global suppression does not work properly when the target has already been locally blocked.

This user name is for dewiki blocked and suppressed, but the line in Special:Users is not crossed out. When you have suppress user rights (oversight) then you can read the line crossed out. Here the line is not crossed out. What is wrong? What did I understand wrong?

doctaxon added a comment to T25310: Global suppression does not work properly when the target has already been locally blocked.

But otherwise the software isn't doing what I expect. If I suppress a user name locally then I expect, that the user name can't be reading publicly locally by any users any more. That's the result of a suppression and should work. And some years ago, I don't have the exact date, it worked properly. We have a big bunch of suppressed user names from some years ago that cannot be read publicly.

Who of WMF I have to contact to wipe those user names entirely? In dewiki it's unfortunately not very rarely, to suppress such harmful user names.

One question in mind: Why do we really need a PNG rendering of SVG files? Let's use SVG as SVG and all will be happy. When we need thumbnails or gallery pictures of SVG files we should show minimized SVG (you can minimize and maximize SVG without to produce pixel sludge).

Aug 22 2023

doctaxon added a comment to T315893: Add space between page namespace and page title.

No, I disagree but you are wrong too. The words within the page title name indeed should be spelt orthographically. But the colon is not an orthographically colon but a namespace separator within the title database item, and with this it's programming language but not German language with its orthography. In spite of this the page name title is written in the URL without blank or separator, too. Why do we need such differences.

As I said, once it is presented prominently to our readers, text needs to comply with spelling rules. Most readers are completely unaware of namespaces. It would never be acceptable to have such a technical use of punctuation in page titles in ns-0; in other namespaces it is less dramatic, but still not great. Another idea I had in mind for quite some time would be to distinguish the namespace through a different colour (something grey, I guess) or font. The way it used to be written is definitely not what should be aimed for in the long run …

doctaxon added a comment to T315893: Add space between page namespace and page title.

This has nothing to do with German spelling but with namespace separation. So the blank style is a programming language spelling mistake. I never saw this spelling within any other programming using namespaces.

Text that is presented to our readers necessarily needs to comply with spelling and typography rules. So imo it makes a lot of sense to differentiate between what is used internally (URL etc.) and what is displayed to everyone. I have long proposed a similar thing for subpages; however, in that case it is more complex, as the slash needs to be distinguished from the title itself first.

Any reference to a page that does not match what the top heading looks like on the page itself is going to be perceived as a mistake. If communities can override it then it shouldn't be imposed on them in the first place, because they didn't ask for it.
