geraki added a comment to T221892: &veaction=edit no longer overrides namespace settings (can't edit global sandbox page using VE).

The previous behavior was nice, and was actually used for editing Project namespace, as the reasons not to do it in some projects are the exception and not the rule. For example in elwiki there is only a handful of Project: pages that are actually used as talk pages. Article related discussions are done in Talk: subpages (always connected to the related article). Sandbox was already moved to Help: namespace so that newbies could press the actual tab that see in every article to open VE and not a made up button. So, some wikis would only need a blacklist to disable VE in some noticeboards etc. The majority of Project: pages (guidelines etc) have no problem to be edited by VE. I was doing it and like Kerry reports above we had hinted one of our glam fellows to use VE for everything and suddenly had to use to code.

geraki added a comment to T211006: Add redlink experience to empty search results on Mobile (JS version).

Note: There is no "Create page" while typing on the search field, even in desktop. I believe we should keep it this way.
In elwiki we have modified MediaWiki:Searchmenu-new giving two red links in order to give the option to use either WikiEditor or VisualEditor to create the page. In fact it is the only way to create a page using VE since the first edit (T194128 has not been addressed yet).
I believe most experienced users will never use mobile creation, so it would be a good idea to open the red link straight with visual editing instead of source editing.

@Lydia_Pintscher, why is this Low priority? Given the resistance of the english wikipedia using or even linking to Wikidata, this concerns all others (disregarding links from external websites).
The example is from a group of 4000 links from year articles in elwiki: https://el.wikipedia.org/wiki/1976#Γεννήσεις (a good live example of Wikidata use inside Wikipedia).
Giving the ability to display results in each project (or user) language is essential.

geraki added a comment to T150826: Remove unblockself right on wikimedia wikis (but allow blocked admins to block their blocker).

Well intended but bad idea. This will give an option not only to a comprised admin account but also to a rogue admin in a small community to block the other one or two admins in a coup (an usually in such small communities it may pass unnoticed).
A better approach would be to be able to unblock itself but in exchange to not being able to use admin tools for n time. This would give time to users/admins to report and solve the situation together with stewards.

I'd like to help with this.
The bot generated list seems to cut words in half, separated by their diacritics: almost all greek words contain diacritics (some people omit them only when they type in touch screen or capital letters)
So the list is currently useless, most strings there are parts of common words.

geraki added a comment to T68580: Better support for exact values in Quantity DataType.

I see some strong opinion that specially for population a "margin of uncertainty" is needed by default. I don't get it. Experience suggests that if there is a "margin of uncertainty" it will be mentioned in the sources. Common sense suggests that if it is not mentioned, then any default or manual specified margin, +/- 1 or +/-50000 is arbitrary, since the default applies to numbers between zero and billions. They would not have the same level of uncertainty.

""Note btw that "population" is a natural number count but should *not* default to exact values, but apply the +/-1 rule.""

I have removed "last" locally at el.wikipedia. It seems to solve the problem (although using "last" made the message clearer).

I am afraid that it can't. The only way to shorten it, it would be to change it to "Ενημερώθηκε" but that stands as "Updated" which implies many different things to the reader.

I put the workaround. Thanks. I assume it needs to be removed when the patch is merged.

I have translated Hovercards locally in elwiki, and Ι have just moved the translations to translatewiki.

Maybe it is possible for the parser to catch <big> in wikitext and render it as a <span> in HTML?
No ugly wikitext, no templates, faster parsing, better semantics.
