Fundraising translation feedback edit

Hey DavidL,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback in french using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Superprotect status edit

Dear DavidL, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

frwikibooks edit

@DavidL: Is it normal that I cannot talk on talk pages? I can't even wite to you on frwikibooks on your own talk page.

This boilerplate shall be on the top of this page but the system rejects my edit (Il n'est pas autorisé de créer sa page de présentation sans être un contributeur du site, ni de faire de l'auto-promotion.). Maybe someone would like to do something about it. Until then I will not see when you write anything here, and people will not even know why.

I wanted to ask around what the actual problem was with the bot, but if I cannot even ask it really doesn't work. You can contact me on anywhere else (commons, meta, ...) where I have write permission. Thanks. --grin 11:38, 1 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi grin,
There is some problems with the bot:

User:DavidL/darktheme.css edit

Hi, in the very first ruleset, you may want to replace background-image:url(-) with background-image: none, because the former actually triggers an HTTP request to « https://<wiki_domain>/w/- » (which of course gets a 404 error). Od1n (talk) 11:29, 13 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

  Done Thanks for suggestion.

Dark mode colour contrast issues rendered on iOS devices edit

Hello, just a quick feedback, the dark mode template does not work well with vector 2010/2022 when viewed on an iOS device. Specifically the captions of image thumbnails - the text is almost the same colour as the background which is not possible to read. would you be able to make e.g. the text brighter? thanks

here is a screenshot from an iphone, and it appears that the same issue is also rendered on a macbook: https://ibb.co/tM6xhDN original page Epidemiology of obesity Adenosine Triphosphate (talk) 20:12, 16 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

I also see the problem on wiki pages using the mobile view gadget.
  Done The problem should be fixed now.

thanks for fixing that, however here's a new problem:
The "tools" menu when hidden to the top bar
The text when editing any page
In both instances the text is rendered as the same colour as the background. Example: https://imgur.com/a/kO2zdw9 Adenosine Triphosphate (talk) 11:04, 31 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
First new problem should be fixed.
I can't see how to fix the second problem as I cannot reproduce it.
-- ◄ David L • talk ► 08:22, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
I use chrome on macos, editing with source editing, the problem is there. the text appears correct on ios chrome.
i also tried with safari on macos, when you click on edit source of an article, the text shows for 1 second but disappears into the background colour.
Could you see if you can replicate this? Adenosine Triphosphate (talk) 09:53, 1 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

Album Track Listing is Greyed Out edit

Using this skin, I noticed that on both desktop and mobile versions, the album tracks are greyed out. Is it possible to fix that?

Dark theme problems w/ header edit

Hi, I'm not sure if this is particularly a me issue, or if it's an unadded feature, but I'm using Vector 2022 with your dark theme, and the top bar still appears as if it is in light theme. I do have some other customized CSS that may be interfering (see my CSS page on the English Wikipedia). If I may add a suggestion, having the header and tagline inverted in color, but not the Wikipedia logo, may be most effective for allowing this accessibility with a darkened header.

P.S.: I'm going to remove it for now, but I just placed the standard import URL at the first line. Personhumanperson (talk) 13:48, 29 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
