There are new complaints about this change at nowiki, w:no:Wikipedia:Torget#Merkelig når en skal opprette artikkel. Previous complaint at w:no:Wikipedia:Torget/Arkiv/2019/juni#Visual editor når man oppretter artikler.

Without going into specifics; some users will nearly always open a red-linked article in plain old wikitext editor because the initial editing consists mostly of non-content-text, it is mostly markup. Not sure what you would call “brødtekst” in English. For those users it is a major inconvenience to use the visual UI and try to navigate a pointer-based interface.

For those that use all three editors, both VisualEditor and WikitextEditor2017 is unusable for template editing, this is a awkward change as it has now become pretty much random which editor is used. The reason it is pretty much random which editor opens is because it is pretty much random which editor the user last used. It seems like some devs thinks the choice is static, but it is not, users change back and forth all the time.

It would be nice to be able to export a pandoc friendly mediawiki format, and thus be able to create several formats including epub.

The solution in T224741#5228174 will fail badly when you have permutations of references. Permutations of references in such a list will spawn new entries in the references tag. This will be a real problem with references in infoboxes.

I have described a slight variant on T224741, or rather an extended functionality.

Thanks to everyone! :D

As I wrote as clarification, this also happen on enwiki, i follows the user language. Just click on the links and wait a few minutes. Most likely the message cache is somehow stuck in an outdated state.

@Nikerabbit Could this be an error due to the translate update being turned off for a short time?
Tried to go to enwiki, which has the timestamp, and then change the English language to Norwegian Bokmål, and the timestamp goes away.
Actually, you did reproduce the bug.

Per PHP: function die; die doesn't prevent destructors from being run, so the script doesn't exit immediately, it still goes through cleanup routines.

Not sure I agree with @Esanders, this is detected, as it has nowiki added to *not* being linked. It should just be left alone.

I wonder if it would be better to relate analytics tasks to specific metrics on Wikitech or some other site, as a task only description with no links opens a wast array of possible interpretations. I dumped into this while searching for possible ways of analyzing new contributors, and after more than 10 years on Wikipedia I still have trouble figuring out what this is about.

Seems like something is wrong with the local repo, new clone works.

The same behavior observed at nowiki. It is reported as w:no:Wikipedia:Torget#Overvåkingsliste virker ikke.

Seems like the short form is used inside a paragraph, but the first occurrence use the full form. (example)

This should really be solved somehow.

Nice, really nice!

Could it be the final .2 that creates trouble? Even when removed I can't get the correct book, that is the second bind.

Note that there are several options to do PGP/GPG signing and encryption in the browser. One example in Javacript is OpenPGP.js, but it is probably better to use Web Cryptography API if available. (It is almost universally available now, and should be used.)
Sorry, but this is not the way you should do it. This assumes the uploader in fact reads and understands the schema (s)he is signing, but that newer works. It is also insecure as it opens a man in the middle attack.
Note that "click 'sign this' icon next to a statement" imply a fundamentally insecure and broken process. You don't sign something after it is uploaded, you sign it before and while it is still on your own machine. The JSON code snippet should be signed, and then a provenance for the statement including that snippet should be provided.

This process is completely and utterly broken.
Still not fixed?
I believe this has been fixed…
The target for the first tab is sometimes the special page with whatever arguments to recreate the page as it is in the current context, and sometimes it is just the pagetitle of the investigation.

Ouch, something I wrote a long time ago…
Feb 13 2019
Does this still happen? I wonder if this is gone now…
See also T150581.
Really weird and confusing, but it is unlikely it will ever be changed. "Its someones baby."
Kvensk (fkv) seems to be added, Romani/Romanes (rom) is added as rmy (?), and Scandoromani/Romani rakripa is still missing.
This was on vagrant, and the gadgets2 role is dismissed.

This was implemented by a slight change to Xt/Xm, I have not seen anything similar.
Feb 4 2019
It does not make sense to keep this open. Closing as declined due to the community, I doubt it will change anytime soon.
Feb 2 2019
Bits and pieces of JSON is available, some documented, some not. It is pretty weird.
Probably just "a random debug spew"
Perhaps if someone else does the followup.
Not sure if it is possible to finish this.
I can't see how this will ever be implemented.
