There has been recent movement on T172035, but I don’t think this ticket is relevant anymore. The portals long ago migrated from me manually copy-pasting HTML around to Meta sysops generating the HTML using a Lua module to finally automating the whole process without Meta’s involvement (T128546).

The sparse FAQ about rel="me" made it sound like it’s purely about whether the two pages represent the same entity, but this documentation does emphasize the need to make identity consolidation an opt-in, which the feature requested here definitely would not be. I’d be OK with closing this issue unless there’s some way to make the linking more nuanced.

mxn added a comment to T63958: Use existing $dateFormats to format dates on Wikidata.

This issue still affects any language that numbers its months instead of naming them. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese have been mentioned above, to which I’d add Vietnamese. These languages have narrow month “names” that are just bare numbers and instead rely on date formats to append a prefix or suffix to the month name.

mxn added a comment to T236593: Cannot enter multiple forms for the same language variant.

The approach I had to take with Vietnamese (separate lexemes per word per writing system, “translations” from one writing system to another) does have some downsides. For one thing, the criteria for a translation between vi and vi-Hani must be stricter than the criteria for a translation between vi and en; otherwise there would be no way to distinguish these transcriptions from translations more generally. In principle, it would follow that every simplified Chinese character should also have a separate lexeme from the corresponding traditional character(s), as on Wiktionary, and we could even take this to the extreme that “colour” is the en-GB “translation” of “color” in en-US. Maybe this wouldn’t be such a slippery slope with a dedicated “transcriptions” or “readings” property alongside the “translations” property, but such a property would be less discoverable by data consumers.

mxn added a comment to T236593: Cannot enter multiple forms for the same language variant.

If it is so important that forms not be used for orthographic variants of a non-alphabetic writing system, then the alternative approach would be to store the quốc ngữ and chữ Nôm representations in separate lexemes, as though they’re different languages. We could link individual quốc ngữ and chữ Nôm senses together as translations. This would be broadly consistent with the approach taken on every Wiktionary and render this ticket moot for Vietnamese, but it bends the definition of a language quite a bit.

Nearly Vietnamese lexeme would be affected by this issue, because one of the two writing systems for the language is phonetic while the other is phonosemantic, resulting in a many-to-many relationship between the two writing systems.

I'm not sure that ko-kore (or ko-hani) would be the best way to add text containing hanja because wouldn't we want it to be linked to the corresponding hangul? Years ago, I proposed a "hanja" property for Korean (proposal here) . It was rejected at the time but I still think that would be the best way to do it and perhaps it would be a good idea to revisit it.

Adding chữ Nôm would be a nice improvement for Vietnamese-language Wikimedia projects as well as for federated projects. For example, an infobox at the Vietnamese Wikipedia could display the historical chữ Nôm name of a place or person. OpenStreetMap currently has a nonnegligible number of chữ Nôm names, even though the project is supposed to focus on current details rather than historical details. It’s likely that the people who contributed these names would be less likely to add them to OSM if they were able to add them to Wikidata, where historical nuances could be better accounted for (like the distinction between Ho Chi Minh City and Saigon).

We could significantly reduce the number of API calls by not having the script query overpass for certain classes of item (instances of human, taxon, academic paper, astronomical object, language, genome, chemical compound, etc.)

If the map display could also not appear for those classes, so much the better.

I think that would require a WDS query on every page load, which would spare one API by hammering another.

Would it? I'm no coder, but I would have thought the script can read the content of the page on which it occurs.

One strategy I often see in table editors (both on the Web and on native platforms) is to maintain only a single input field and move it around to cover the selected cell. (On Apple platforms, this is called the “field editor”.) Unselected cells are otherwise just plain text. That keeps things lightweight even for large tables and makes it more straightforward to swap in other kinds of input fields depending on the data type.

mxn updated subscribers of T252307: Create a Lua module that converts tabular data to a wiki table.

@eprodromou had a similar idea with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Covid19Data, which is specific to COVID-19 case count tables. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Medical_cases_chart can also display such a table as a bar chart.)

This is now one of the functions in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Tabular_data. For this function to be useful to articles that currently hardcode tabular data, there will probably need to be styling and data formatting options, and the sources should probably go in <ref>.

mw.ext.data.get() returns the tabular data for a page as a Lua table. A starting point would be to output a wikitable that formats the tabular data exactly as on Commons.

mxn added a comment to T230593: Unify the display of all Wikimedia portals.

When the Wikipedia portal was modernized in 2016, the intent was that all the sister portals would get a similar facelift and upgrade. However, the Foundation could only commit resources to modernizing the Wikipedia portal, and there didn’t seem to be much traction on the rest.

mxn added a comment to T171374: Make CodeMirror support IME functionality.

I'm going to take another stab at this tomorrow. I still think it's a race condition, where CodeMirror's keypress event is getting fired first. Maybe we could introduce a "hook", so to speak, that IME could use? This would mean modifying the core codemirror.js, but it seems something like this might be worth committing upstream anyway. Other editing libraries that work off of keypress might have the same issue.

mxn added a comment to T171647: Wikipedia portal: adjust the languages used for Chinese translations.

We created the JSON files in l10n from Module:Project portal/wikis, naming the files based on wiki subdomains (e.g., zh-yue.json). Meanwhile, translatewiki.net lays down JSON files named for ISO 639 codes (hence yue.json). So for some languages, we have some properties in one file and some in another. Had anyone translated the strings into Literary Chinese (lzh) at translatewiki.net, we would’ve had both zh-classical.json and lzh.json for the same wiki.

mxn added a comment to T171647: Wikipedia portal: adjust the languages used for Chinese translations.

The way wm-portal.js handled the Chinese localization was by baking the Traditional Chinese strings into the page, along with Simplified Chinese versions in data-convert-hans and data-converttitle-hans attributes; [convertChinese()](https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/WPOR/browse/master/dev/wikipedia.org/assets/js/wm-portal.js;66831d2a556c51b52344454108129c8bcf286829$116) would then swap in the Simplified Chinese strings if the browser’s language was zh-hans, zh-cn, zh-sg, or zh-my.

@debt, that message means nothing in OpenStreetMap is tagged with the current item’s QID. The map and its overlays are provided by overpass turbo, so the gadget is unable to customize that particular message or add an edit link. It might be a different story if an overpass turbo instance were to run on Toolforge I suppose. ;-)
