gh87 added a comment to T161228: Create user right "autopatrol-file".

@Nemo_bis There was consensus per enWP discussion to create "autopatrol-file" right at enWP but no consensus to separate the ability to patrol articles (and other pages) and to patrol files. Cenarium gave a rationale to propose the user right, saying that creating the user right would benefit editors probably knowledgeable about copyrights, fair use, and file patrolling but not qualified for the "autopatrol" right.

I recently removed one task as a "subtask". Re-reading the discussion, I realize that there wasn't a consensus yet to split abilities to separately patrol mainspace pages (i.e. articles) and file pages.

Not just Test Wikipedia. Meta-wiki has experienced the same issue. The alerts (bell), notices (box), watchlist button (star), and external link (arrow) icons are invisible. Other projects, like Wikimedia Commons and Wiktionary, experience the similar issues. Icons still appear on Wikipedia; I believe that non-Wikipedia projects have the icon visibility issue.

Just in case, there is an old discussion of this year about the old toolbar, where some editors still use it. Well, I learned about the discussion after starting this one. Why not stall this task and ask the communities whether it should be removed completely from all projects or some of them?

Hmm... purge action may be needed for now until MediaWiki can be properly operated to keep content up to date. Sure, the purge buttons are grating, but anonymous users using IP addresses, if they can discover, are left with an option to type ?action=purge or &action=purge in the http address bar, which is more effective than simply pressing the refresh/reload button.

gh87 added a comment to T171938: ProveIt init doesn't work with Internet Explorer or in older browsers.

I found out that, on IE11, the ProveIt toolbar works by switching to "classic version" of ProveIt via user preferences in enWP. Click the box to checkmark that option and then press "save changes", and it works. Furthermore, if you checkmark both "ProveIt" and "ProveIt (classic version)", you will see both the "[P]" button and the classic, old version of ProveIt.

I think the task description and title defines a solution rather than a problem. The use case presented in one of the links is "I want to do a binary search for history diving so that I can speed up my search for some nugget of information". I think that would better illustrate the problem.

The solution to that might be to change the widget rather than to provide a configuration option and would seem more reasonable as a result.
