Why not simply leave the existing post URLs (like https://blog.wikimedia.org/2018/05/03/why-i-women-wikipedia/ ) intact and just redirect the blog's main page https://blog.wikimedia.org/ to https://wikimediafoundation.org/news/ ? That might save quite a bit of work and help avoid unforeseen technical complications. What is the rationale for creating and maintaining a new domain like blogarchives.wikimedia.org ?

jrbs added a comment to T190449: Expiration field on Special:Block only accepts English input.

On a more general note, even though I've had the sysop permissions for a long time, I don't often use them for blocking. Asking people who do block often makes a lot of sense. Of course, it would be great to hear from people from a lot of different projects and languages, including English ;)

jrbs added a comment to T190449: Expiration field on Special:Block only accepts English input.

Also, fun fact: Until not that long ago, you could input a duration in virtually any way you wanted, and if the system understood it, it'd block accordingly. (A "microfortnight" worked, a "chicken" did not.)

jrbs added a comment to T190449: Expiration field on Special:Block only accepts English input.

In my experience as a volunteer, virtually 100% of all blocks I've made have been for time periods rather than absolute expiry times. The most common (outside of "indefinite") is probably 31 hours, since that is effectively two days. I imagine other admins do similar with that field for longer blocks than 31h but which are likewise oddly-timed.

jrbs added a comment to T189237: Interaction Timeline: Change definition of "pages where both users have edited" to respect the start and end dates.

@jrbs — I think we're defining the same thing. To use this example with the value of 90 days (instead of 7, which I couldn't find a simple neutral example easily) it would show all edits by both Paul and myself to Lord Huron, Tall Heights, and Wolf Parade but not Portugal. The Man, Dr. Dog, and Spoon (band).

Edit: Or, to use my Apples and Bananas and United States example from above, if you set it to January 14-24:

  • the current timeline would show no edits for Apples but Bananas' edits to Texas, Arizona, + Missouri
  • with the proposal to respect the date range as the threshold, the timeline would show no results
  • with the proposal to set a 7-day threshold, the timeline would show no edits for Apples but Banana's edits to Texas

jrbs added a comment to T182548: Interaction Timeline returns only partial results on complex queries.

@jrbs I don't think it is useful, that's why I'm raising the question if we should display so many edits that far apart from the first interaction. One solution to this would be to add more filters, like display X edits before/after each interaction.

Yup, this is because edits are sorted chronologically and in this case you'll only see Oshwah's edits until Drewmutt makes the first edit in a common page. which can take several pages scrolling down.

In my previous comment I said

This example does bring another issue(?). Should we display only one user's edit that far back before an actual interaction happened?

To illustrate this better, Oshwah has been making edits to his/her talk page since 2007 and Drewmutt made one edit in 2017, you will see hundreds of edits from Oshwah until you get to Drewmutt's. Does that makes sense?
