James: blocking the edit window would be even more sub-optimal for user interaction.

sladen added a comment to T141685: Investigate how to handle differating punctuation around ref tags.

Ideally AWB/Yobot should check the preceding character before relocating punctuation in the vicinity of <ref/> to before <ref/>, and flag ambiguous cases for manual processing.

These cases of conflicting punctuation probably need flagging for manual processing.

sladen added a comment to T135808: "Start editing" popup can't be dismissed without clicking "Start editing".

The behaviour differs between Firefox, and Chromium:

  • Firefox:, buttons are above one another; focus disappears; escape ignored
  • Chromium:, buttons resize to be side-by-side; focus disappears; escape processed.

@matmarex: when you click on the top 75% of the dialogue box, what happens to the initial focus on the bottom "button"?

  2. Click anywhere on the "Welcome to Wikipedia box" (top ~75% of the popup)
  3. Press Escape

The difference appears to be that "Start editing" is now highlighted (and focused) by default.

sladen changed the status of T136076: Roll back "Start editing" popup feature from Open to Stalled.

Quim: please can you schedule getting this changeset rolled back until when/if it is in a suitable state for re-testing/deployment; it's been live for a week now which is not really acceptable for something that is restricted to the subset of $everyone multipled by $every_wiki_they_edit_on.

This bug appears to be a server-side performance issue (something not visible to the user), so ideally any proposed solution on the implementation side should also be something not visible to the user.
