eranroz added a comment to T123857: RTL with LTR in edit summaries breaks.

Notes:

  1. This works based on user language, not sitelang (e.g uselang can workaround it: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q3013215&curid=2880827&diff=292663898&oldid=250877025&uselang=fa )
  2. Setting the directionality should be to the sitelang without the site prefix e.g [[fa:<span dir="rtl">FATITLE</span>]]

sorry I had a mistake in the example above - we can't ask parser to handle so invalid HTML. After fixiing the </td></tr> this is reasonable wikitext that should generate <ul> list and it doesn't.
Either parser should be fixed (add </ul> when getting out of <td> in which the <ul> was added by the parser itself) or it should do post processing on the Remex

I think this task can be considered as resolved (mainly thanks to T185693) from engineering POV.
If there are still wikis using such iterations - they should fix it, but it is now on their (community) hands.
I suggest that before moving this task to resolved, we should ask Community-Liaisons to communicate to wikis to be aware to it.

For many reasons this is entirely unacceptable, whether it be loading external resources or making depending upon tools.wmflabs.org.

Lego, I guess making depending upon tools.wmflabs.org is not rare, and used by other wikis. If this by itself could be unacceptable - this can be reviewed either static analyses using mwgrep tools.wmflabs.org in all WMF wikis in MW NS or dynamicly using PhantomJS (see T71519) and can be reviewed further in different task.

I can't reproduce it (looking on Special:Logs/move to find recent moves, and looking for the relevant "Language link changed from $1 to $2" messages - seems like those are correct links. I guess this was due to different versions(?) but anyway this is not reproducible/invalid.

  1. The change shouldn't propagate to the original wiki(?) as it already updated

This can be reproduced by going to Special:Log/move (in some client wiki), select some article that is linked to wikidata, and search for it in the recent changes.

eranroz added a comment to T185664: FlaggedRevs: code stewardship review.

I vote support to archive, this extension is no longer needed, let's just focus the ORES development trains.

ORES have completely different goals - FlaggedRevs allow users to manually flag a version was reviewed and is not a vandalism, while ORES provide predictor giving a score whether it is or isn't a vandalism - but predictor may be wrong in many cases, and if human reviews a revision it should be possible to flag it.
One way to "merge" those extensions would be to extend ORES to handle not just the post-training phase, but also the training/manual classification. AFAIK currently ORES doesn't support it and the training is based on "campaigns/wikilabels" which is NOT an extension and targets a predefined set of edits - not all edits (e.g https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Labels )

The first question would be are wikidata sure they want wgIsArticle to be true on item pages?

I suppose this is correct, usually the main/content namespace is "wgIsArticle" (I dont know of any wiki site for which it is false in the main NS).
Possibly this warning can be shown also based on a check with wgVisualEditorConfig.namespaces?

I think we need different limits for different aspects. 10 may be sensible for statements, but it's way too low for languages.

Was looking on cawiki_p to see it in the real world:


Based on cawiki_p.wbc_entity_usage for claims with 3 < C threshold <=25 - we cover ~80% of the usages (90% of the C rows are due to using more than 25 claims from same entity if I did it correctly)
I suggest to revisit T151717 after deploying it.

Apparently, IThenticate has provisionally given us some more credits, so we can restart the bot.

This might be a good time to tackle T178643 as well (although I'm not sure if that actually affects the number of searches performed).

The bot currently run with the following wikis: frwiki, cswiki, enwiki, eswiki.
ptwiki and hewiki are not running on regular basis, hence doesnt consume credits. Going over reviewed cases, looks like enwiki/frwiki /cswiki are actively patrolled while eswiki is monitored only by " Community Tech bot " - so we probably would like to either promote it so eswiki users will use this tool, or disable it if they find it not useful.

eranroz added a comment to T184322: Enable fine grained lua tracking gradually in client wikis.

One more point for consideration: fineGrainedUsageTracking can be deployed with or without tracking specific claims (T151717), where we mask C.Px to O in SqlUsageTracker::handleBlacklistedUsages. AFAIK cawiki already tracks specific claims.

eranroz added a comment to T184322: Enable fine grained lua tracking gradually in client wikis.

This is likely to have tiny aspects on hewiki, as many modules are already adopted to avoid getEntity() but rather use entity ID and fetch only the specific aspect (this have additional benefit of lower footprint of serializations).
Hence wbc_entity_usage is probably not going to change drastically, nor recentchanges (where rc_source=wb), and hewiki may be a good starting point. This is mainly to validate this setting works well and doesn't break anything.

eranroz added a comment to T61165: Underscores in magic words of RTL languages are not treated the same as spaces.

Hi, I am a newbie. If no problem can i know about this bug properly. I have found some '_' should i actually remove them

No. In files, such as ParserFunctions.i18n.magic.php (in ParserFunctions), some messages include space, and some messages include '_' - if you change space to _ or vise versa, any use of this message will be break.

Can you also check if Wikidata already has a property corresponding to your monuments?

Can you please clarify what kind of property we are looking for? (is there any similar property for monuments in other countries?)
