Yes, I've been working on some higher priority issues (this is mostly just a cosmetic problem) but I'll look into it now.

matmarex updated subscribers of T167936: Almost all links in a navbox marked as red on a specific page.

Interestingly, while it's not visible normally because of the node highlights overlaid on top of the template, the links actually point to subpages of my user page – e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Matma_Rex/CSI:_Crime_Scene_Investigation_(season_1) and so on. And VE runs API queries to check the status of those pages, which indeed do not exist. (Even more interesting why some of them, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Matma_Rex/D.B._Russell, are considered to exist…)

The data required for collation is comparatively huge, somewhere on the order of megabytes I think. Even if there was a ready-to-use JavaScript library that implements the Unicode Collation Algorithm (which to my knowledge there isn't, but I'd love to be proved wrong), we couldn't reasonably ship it to the browser.

Because we can't always automatically determine which is the right overlay. The value depends on where you're doing to insert the widget (in a dialog or not, and which dialog), and we don't know that when the widget is being created.

Also, I feel I need to explain the confusing 12.8px and 14px sizes. To be clear, no one is proposing changing the size of the actual text. We only want to make the icons approximately 2 pixels smaller. :)

matmarex added a comment to T168089: Use 12.8 instead of 14px font size.

My initial thought was that blurriness should be fairly minimal if the SVG version of an icon is being used, so perhaps the extent that icon blurriness is an issue could first be reviewed? (...)
Rather than change the text display to accommodate icon blurriness, can we instead decouple the relationship between the icon sizing from font-size?

I mentioned it to @Volker_E once and he said this is intentional / unavoidable limitation of CSS on <select> elements. I don't recall why exactly, I think it's something to do with hiding the browser native arrow on the dropdown.

matmarex added a comment to T168408: Merge the functionality of jquery.accessKeyLabel into OOjs UI's AccessKeyedElement.

So actually, due to different licenses, copy-pasting jquery.accessKeyLabel code into OOjs UI would be a copyright violation (and parts of this code are like ten years old so contacting the authors to relicense it would be difficult). Reimplementing it from scratch seems like a waste of effort. I'm just going to make OOjs UI call into jquery.accessKeyLabel if it's available.

This is a limitation of the CSS model we have to work with. You can work around this by passing an $overlay config option to the DropdownWidget, allowing its dropdown to render outside of the bounding box of the dialog. See here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/OOjs_UI/Concepts#Overlays

matmarex edited projects for T168236: Firefox title field and tab header still says "Editing" after page is published, added: VisualEditor-MediaWiki; removed MediaWiki-General-or-Unknown.

I'm assuming this was with the visual editor (or the new wikitext editor), correct?

matmarex added a comment to T32404: InputBox:Possibility to insert entered string in a predefined search containing boolean operators.

A more limited form of this has been inplemented in T147951 – you can use e.g. searchfilters=incategory:Blah to append arbitrary filters to the user's search query.

matmarex added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

The query below gives the result as 21 "active" users using the old toolbar on English Wikisource. This is with a very loose definition of active – at least 1 edit in last 30 days; we have a better metric for this somewhere but I don't recall where. By the same metric, there are 557 active users in total. For English Wikipedia, the numbers are 1576 "active" users out of 218154 total. (Again, this is a very loose definition of "active" and the number of users who would actually care or notice is probably lower.)

matmarex removed a project from T42812: jquery.makeCollapsible: Refactor to use CSS instead of JavaScript to do the expansion/collapse (including initial state): Accessibility.

It isn't – the way this would be done, is that we would detect whether JavaScript is available immediately when the page starts loading, and only apply the CSS to hide collapsible boxes if it is. When JavaScript is not available, they would not be hidden. (But thanks for asking the question!)
