On the other hand, one could easily ask why CSS is so much more sensitive than any other transclusion that it needs this special treatment.

Well, for one, it allows much more than even Lua to an average editor. I am not, however, a supporter of some ability to watch an article and get all CSS edits from it* (although ‘watch a template and get styles.css too automatically’ could be useful and probably will prove to be a must-have), but we need to get away from the false attitude of ‘CSS can’t be used in very bad ways and community can always enforce against the bad stuff’ either.

Is it not working again? The feed stopped at my end (in Discord bot that I am running) somewhere from 7:10 UTC and, given the history, I thought I’d ask if this is the case of failures again.

stjn added a project to T165283: Editing a page with unflagged changes should edit latest version in VE, even if you view the stable version: Editing-team.

I would ask Editing team to look into this better: it is a very frequent bug appearing for anonymous editors in Russian Wikipedia. We have more than 7,000 stabilised articles (mainly the featured and good articles) and in each of those there were two different links on the stable version that is shown to anonymous viewers: VE link to old (stable) version and default editor link to last version. VE link should not differ from the link that is shown for default editor, and we even submitted a local fix for that (I suggest doing the same to other projects before it could be fixed) given how frequent this leads to deletion of edits due to not noticing that they edit the stable version and not the last version. Before VE was introduced, there were no such issues, so I am considering this a quite big regression.

You got it wrong, it’s not a bug that is described in T180138, it is a different bug within the Timeless skin. For example, it works just fine in Vector, albeit with bigger paddings around the field.

Yes, and yes. As mentioned above, one of the best parts about Timeless is that it's identifying areas that are not skin-agnostic, like e.g. T180663 was fixed in core. I think you should know that I'm one of the most aggressive people for "if no one is maintaining it, lets turn it off" - and I'm advocating for this skin to be deployed. There's a wide range of developers in addition to Isarra who are interested in seeing this project move forward.

I'm not sure anyone made that argument in the first place. That's simply not a reason not to; the reason for adding Timeless everywhere is that more and more projects keep requesting it anyway and we're already completely behind with the whole 'adding one by one' approach. Given that every single project that has had the discussion has wound up with consensus for, it makes sense to not have them have to keep asking.

I was avoiding this conversation up until now, but I am going to respond as much as I can to this outrageous decision-making process that happened right here. First, you have enabled the skin on some projects to ‘test the waters’. Now, that modest support for testing the skin is presented as the same thing as enabling it as a permanent option in settings for all Wikimedia projects? I mean, seriously? About what consensus are you exactly talking about? There was consensus for testing stuff, there is, there was, there was never sought no consensus for indefinite (as it seems) enabling of this skin anywhere.

I don't think that anybody requires it. I see no problem at all with having more opt-in skins as long as they don't cause any other damage.
...
As long as the skin is there only for experiments, it's fine. Doing these experiments is generally desirable—it's not really possible to develop a perfect skin in a clean room without actually running it on a bunch of wikis with real content and real users.

I really don’t see how having enough technical debt already justifies adding it. There is literally no ability to turn off a skin from a Wikimedia project, so local technicians end up supporting Modern for those three people using it and now will be expected to support Timeless for those five people that would experiment with it.

stjn added a comment to T156025: Update the Russian Wikipedia's wikifier gadget work with VisualEditor's wikitext mode.

I can only speak for myself in this, but unless the 2017WTE will be as fast as the current editor from the get-go, I see no local developers taking interest in supporting this project in its current state. It should be quite easy to implement this support, at least seeing the similar work (with different premise) from German user Schnark [1], but until there is an ability for developers to use 2017WTE comfortably, I don’t see any support coming out of this. For anyone that is interested in doing this, however, veAutocorrect is pretty similar in its function and structure to wikificator (or wikifier); the only difference is that wikificator is supposed to be activated by user instead of doing everything in sync.

stjn added a comment to T52865: CentralNotice shifts down page content on load (causes mis-clicks).

Just want to bring to your attention that some banners [1] also tend to jump two times: 1) on the loading phase of JavaScript, and 2) after images are loaded. This should be even more annoying for end users (especially on the slower connections), so maybe we can do something about this? For example, it would be helpful to require CentralNotice admins to set all proportions for images in some way (via CSS or in <img> tag) before releasing the banner so that the box itself would render and stay in one size while loading its content.

Was feedback from WMF Design team on this topic (T158012) met and resolved? I get the urge of the volunteers to develop something that is more modern-looking than the current skin, but I think it is fair to say that in the terms of design this new skin is lacking, to say the least. The choice of colours is completely groundless, skin does not use current conventions on typography (WMUI style guide or typographic refresh) and generally looks like a regression even from Vector.

This is honestly good − there are some gadgets for Special:Delete that would completely break if it was turned into a custom <select>. It is the only reason the script for people deleting pages in Russian Wikipedia (https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Deletepage.js) still works, for example. (Padding is still a problem, yes.)

I can understand the reasoning, but I don't see the significance of Monobook to be that marginal:
...

Well, it still is not part of the same task since IIRC Monobook uses a different theme for UI elements (Apex) and it is not fully compatible with OOUI. The reasonable thing to do is to drop Apex theme in favour of OOUI for all skins, but it probably requires global changes that go beyond the scale of this particular improvement (and this task).

Reopening this per suggestion from @Nemo_bis. The fact that it is more prominent for newcomers does not justify the fact that red quiet buttons right now looks as red links in the interface, which is deeply unacceptable, especially there also can be a literal link for "Editing help" right besides it. And with it definitely looks as one of the links is non-existent, which is not an intended effect.

Right of the bat: red "Cancel" draws too much attention, OOjs UI really should’ve not change the default behaviour of quiet buttons (mw-ui-quiet) from original MediaWiki UI where they were blue/green/red only on hover. I think this is a very major flaw of new design. It was not noticeable when this feature was available only via URL parameter, but it is more prominent issue now.

stjn added a comment to T164049: [Regression] Sight links in RecentChanges not longer available (when option "Hide reviewed edits" is not checked).

Could this be fixed earlier by any chance? This is basically turning off the most efficient way of reviewing process (active users checking their watchlist), it is hurtful for the whole projects not to have these links and notices even in 1 day, not even talking about 10.

It looks worse than I expected it to (because it is still ≈80% of needed width or height in comparison) but I don’t want to take your time anymore with such low-priority task.

Maybe you could at least ignore the layer in JavaScript if there’s errors for loading it? Right now it bugs out the whole map, and that’s not the best behaviour even if there’s more underlying problems.

stjn added a comment to T161213: Invalid hint about <br> tag in Translate extension.

Yes it seems the br rule is no longer relevant, but the issue appears because you are adding <br> where one does not exist in the source text.

This is not the case, since there’s no hint about adding <br />, only <br>. <br /> isn’t in the source text either, but no hints etc. appear for it: https://i.imgur.com/LWiZFgk.png (sorry about not using file uploads).

The CSS for .oo-ui-fieldLayout is supposed to be overridden with:

.oo-ui-fieldLayout:first-child, (…) {
    margin-top: 0;
}

Basically, together, this is meant to add the margin between FieldLayouts, but not to the first one.

stjn added a comment to T154878: Help ruwiki with the map adoption.

Another (relatively little) issue with current <maplink> implementation: there is no title or any other tooltip for users for any map links. I think they should have a title attribute by default, saying something like ‘Show map’ (with JavaScript) or ‘Show information about these coordinates’ (without).

stjn added a comment to T144599: New "engineer" usergroup for ruwiki.

I share objections raised by @Urbanecm and @Dereckson. Also, given T139246, the group should be called editinterface. The name can be customized locally modifying the local MediaWiki messages.

I object to proposed group name even after reading task you’ve linked to. This potential unification is maybe needed for autopatrolled etc., but it is rather harmful for entirely different groups with different purposes and rights. So, for example, if this group would be named ‘interface editor’ in other languages, it would just be an ambiguous name.
