@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.

@Liuxinyu970226 In zh.WP, the icons also reappear. So do it.WP, fr.WP, etc.

@Liuxinyu970226 All icons, including the external links arrow, are working on non-Wikipedia projects. I tried Wikipedia again; icons come and go. However, I see them in my watchlist and most other non-article pages, but I don't see them in articles.

@greg The icons now appear on all projects
except Wikipedia, and I'm using IE11.

Now the bug has extended to Wikipedia, i.e. Wikipedia is having similar IE/Edge issues lately.

My apologies, @Liuxinyu970226. I struck out my previous comment as misunderstanding one of your posts. I just... I should have asked for clarity earlier. I just got frustrated. That's all.
@Liuxinyu970226 Is the question rhetorical? If not, would you please eliminate the question (or delete T176884#3641425). I'd rather not answer what you ask me. Thanks. BTW, may we continue discussing you and me at Meta-wiki or somewhere else please? You and I need a talk.

I didn't know about the "Browser" tags. On IE11, Wikidata and MW.org still have invisible icons.
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.

@Malyacko Oh... Um... I'm not a developer or a code programmer. Sorry. :(
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?

It's been six months since the consensus approved a separate autopatrol-file right. I wonder how the progress of the task has been.

@Jdforrester-WMF The discussion is reclosed as having consensus to support the change. Time to resume this task and change priorities then.

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.

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 insist that this task be stalled, declined, or modified, and T168697 be reopened. The consensus did not agree with the inclusion of English Wikibooks; "no consensus" means defaulting to excluding it.

May I decline this? This would endanger privacy of others, wouldn't it?

Hmm... @ABorbaWMF I couldn't understand what app or website the user used. Did that user mean Wikipedia's search engine or Google's search engine? The screenshots that the user uploaded gave no indication whatsoever belonging to Wikipedia, either German or English. I don't think Wikipedia has those "no results" interfaces, does it?
Jul 15 2017
@Liuxinyu970226 Hmm... maybe we can create subtasks. Otherwise, maybe reject this task and then create separate tasks for Beta WV, for Old Wikisource, and for Incubator.
Search terms in German Wikipedia seem to work in my area, though I don't live in Germany.

That summary at VPT was partially incorrect. From the actual RfC decision:
