First four wikis[edit]

Hi, Johan. What does mean "first four wikis" from the list of four? IKhitron (talk) 19:52, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

The four named wikis, "first" as opposed to all other wikis. Rephrased it for clarity. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 20:03, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
Very weird. IKhitron (talk) 20:47, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

JSON[edit]

Hi again, Johan. I saw now an improvement in JSON files view. Do not know what task it is, but it looks much better. Do we need to say something about this? IKhitron (talk) 12:12, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

IKhitron: Hrm. The only thing even remotely related to that territory I've seen is phab:T238972, which we reported in Tech/News/2019/49, but that's not really the same thing. I don't even know what you're talking about and can't find anything, either, but I'll ask others and see if they know. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:40, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
I'm talking about the "freeze panes" feature. I always wanted it to come to wiki in tables, and this is a very good first step. IKhitron (talk) 13:41, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
OK, I'll include next week if I find something worth including. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 17:18, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
I still haven't figured this out. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:32, 27 February 2020 (UTC)

Pre-existing scripts?[edit]

What will happen to w:User:Enterprisey/reply-link? BEANS X3 (talk) 13:44, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Ping User:Whatamidoing (WMF). /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:50, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Hello, BEANS X3. I haven't tested that script myself. It may be necessary for editors to turn on one or the other (i.e., not both). Some similar scripts have an internal switch to disable themselves if a conflicting tool is enabled. Of course, what User:Enterprisey does with his script is up to him. If you prefer it, then I'm certainly not going to make you stop using it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:04, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
Ok. I feel like I might use the MW version, for its live preview, when it rolls out. I shall see what Enterprisey does too. BEANS X3 (talk) 13:38, 25 February 2020 (UTC)
