neilpquinn closed T165066: When a table replaces a definition list, the semi-colon is kept and incorporates the whole table as Invalid.

I've tried to replicate this in Firefox (70.0b10) and Chrome (77.0.3865.90) on macOS (10.14.6).

neilpquinn added a project to T166494: Provide a keyboard shortcut for adding signature: OWC2020.

This might be worth doing as part of the on-wiki communication improvements.

neilpquinn changed the status of T145893: Clicking between a bullet circle and the associated text doesn't move the cursor from Stalled to Open.

I can reproduce this on Firefox 70.0b5 on macOS 10.14.6 (but not on Chrome 77.0.3865.75). I imagine the priority is pretty low, though 🙂

neilpquinn added a comment to T124730: Pasting list items in VisualEditor results in confusing behavior.

Copying a single list item no longer "selects the bullet", so it simply pastes as normal text. This results in more intuitive behavior; for example, copying a list item and then pasting it into an empty list item just results in duplicating the same list item.

neilpquinn added a comment to T152442: Exact title search for page in extra content namespace does not return that page in the first 500 results .

it looks like this is getting a great score for full text matching, but is being discounted by 80% due to being in namespace 104. The configuration right now is that even though namespaces 0, 100 and 104 are content namespaces, 100 and 104 get an 80% discount to their score. This feature makes sense for pushing talk pages and such down, but not sure it's the right thing to do here. Will need to ponder.
