stjn raised the priority of T50047: client watchlist shows more than just the last change on the item from Normal to Unbreak Now!.

Will anything be done to this? Watchlisting any big item (such as ones for any country) completely breaks my watchlist with multitudes of edits to the same articles, why is this completely neglected? This is a default configuration, not some option, why is no one working on the fix?

I really liked this change because of the ability to pick a concrete date, but the interface clearly wasn’t fledged out. Collapsing the form now seems not like a complete fix of the design, but like a quick and dirty change to appease people. This is especially visible on the screenshots provided here, where OOUI clearly doesn’t support collapsing forms like this and bottom margin is still visible in collapsed view.

If you add some redirection, add a way to circumvent it please (via some specific query?). Right now testing for mobile version involves just changing a domain, with this proposal it would involve changing a user agent string which is much harder to explain to people (and impossible to link to, in fact).

stjn added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

Yeah, I get that, that’s why I’m saying that reverting back to black and seeking accessible colours next to pure black is better than having pale link colours that still barely come around WCAG 2.0 AA level requirement (3:1, see https://webaim.org/blog/wcag-2-0-and-link-colors/) because of using dark grey.

stjn added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

stjn added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

#3366cc is a poorly chosen colour for links. While you’re upping contrast level to almost 3:1 with normal text, like WCAG 2.0 tells us, you’re decreasing it almost in two times for the background (while not against AA level, making it against AAA level). What that really tells us is not that we need to have less visible link colour, but we should’ve not used #222 as main text colour because of purely stylistic choices (and fix contrast of the links in regards to pure black text instead of dark grey).

Well, I just saw this task and thought that it’s just moving chairs around the table when there’s a more pressing issue. Most communities have sysops or people involved with the project could’ve asked for global interface editing rights, so I’m not really convinced this was a wise thing to do, but I won’t bother you with further comments.

In my opinion, which I said in #wikimedia-tech before, they should be in MediaWiki: namespace of local projects (so, restricted to all local admins), not in any one wiki that hardly anyone pays attention to. Current setup is certainly a vector of attack for Commons.

stjn added a comment to T208901: TemplateStyles breaks a paragraph if a file is inserted inline.

Parser in the web browser is not the problem, that’s what I’m trying to tell. The proposed strategy with <link rel="stylesheet"> is unfeasible, since the point of inline styles is exactly to move away from the additional browser requests. The strategy with extracting <style> elements in <head> was declined before and for a good reason (increasing the time of first paint). The strategy of putting them in the end of <body> will add flashes of unstyled content.

stjn added a comment to T208901: TemplateStyles breaks a paragraph if a file is inserted inline.

This issue is not caused by browser logic, which allows to put <style> anywhere as of HTML 5.2 (and even before then, even if it would’ve been semantically incorrect, it would still work in browsers), it is caused by inaccurate parsing rules of MediaWiki wikitext parser. There’s nothing preventing us to fix those rules, especially since browser logic doesn’t require these bugs to happen.

I’m not sure of semantics of deprecated in TemplateData (AFAIK, there’s no concrete front-facing documentation on how these should be used, so no one on the projects really follows it), but it should at least be consistent across the platforms. If you think that TemplateWizard does a better job here then we need to ask VE team why they aren’t filtering deprecated parameters.

I made a patch that adds a method to get TemplateData in Lua. The method is currently named mw.ext.TemplateData.loadTemplateData(), which is long, but according to the conventions available, the prefix for the extension should be mw.ext.TemplateData. Alternatively, it's possible to change the name of the method itself (e.g. to load()). Or, perhaps, someone can indicate the reasons for which the prefix can be removed.

Is it possible to see a screenshot of an implementation of that fix @stjn?

stjn reopened T50047: client watchlist shows more than just the last change on the item as "Open".

It appears that this bug was not fixed or was broken afterwards again, as I mentioned in T90435#4119854 before. If I need to file a new task, feel free to close it and forward me to this. I got down to writing a clear task description before finding this task, so I’ll just copy it below.

stjn added a comment to T205197: Support insertion of Scribunto Lua modules using Visual Editor.

But why is it a bad practice? Till now I haven't heard a single really good explanation of why is it bad, or why using a template that does nothing but call a module is good.

Other than one more word, #invoke:, calling a Lua module is not more complicated than calling a template.

stjn added a comment to T205197: Support insertion of Scribunto Lua modules using Visual Editor.

I guess that the reason for this is that there is an assumption that modules are usually not used directly in articles, but are only used internally in templates. I suspect, however, that this assumption is not quite true: searching the main space of the English Wikipedia for insource:#invoke finds quite a lot of direct module invocations.

stjn added a comment to T206143: Slow response of new preferences UI: Shows content of all tabs on a single page for a moment.

Don’t know the code exactly, but shouldn’t it be possible to do the hiding part correctly before doing something with every widget or whatever is blocking the performance? For people like the task author, showing first tab for 30 seconds or so (especially if he would click to ‘Beta’ link) still will be a visible performance bug.

≈3-5 second delay for me on Firefox 62 (Windows) before new UI starts showing me only the current tab. (Don’t have any issues with connection, btw.)

If hide-when-compact class doesn’t bring any additional styling on desktop (as far as I can see), I think that (1) wouldn’t be controversial to do.

stjn added a comment to T113346: Add GENDER to username related strings on Special:Contributions.

Is there any complexity to adding this to page title? MediaWiki:Contributions already has gender support, but the parameter is not being passed to the message on Special:Contributions, would it be hard to do? (Not asking to nudge people, but rather to know if I can submit a patch.)

stjn added a comment to T205581: History, Special:Contributions, Special:RecentChanges, Special:Watchlist should be fully skinnable - use pseudo elements for separating elements.

Sorry, haven’t read the entire discussion. My (minor) concern with this, though, is that it would be a lot harder to copy a log line that doesn’t make much sense as a list inside of a list inside of a list (like edit section links don’t really need this treatment in their default look and configuration), but I guess I can manage.

This solution brings additional complexity without much benefit, don’t you think? We don’t render edit section links separators via CSS, why in this case it is more viable to do this than to allow customisation via some API?

Maybe you might find this useful: we’ve dealed with this in a gadget in Russian Wikipedia (with mw-ui-button, however; you can see it under a summary field in any editing interface) and the solution we found for overflowing was adding a margin-left of 1px on parent and having margin-left: -1px for every button. That way there won’t be unevenness in position of the buttons on the next line.

stjn added a comment to T200880: Editor should flag mobile editing warnings.

This, sadly, will prove more annoying for editors than useful if we’d try to implement this on a large scale, in my opinion. Especially if the thing that MobileFrontend has concerns with is in some protected template − how a user is expected to go around this if they don’t want to see the warning in the article they’ve written with it?
