qqqEdit

Can you tell me where this https://translatewiki.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Addwatch/en message is displayed? Is this description "Link to a dialog box, displayed at the end of the list of categories at the foot of each page. https://translatewiki.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Addwatch/qqq" up to date (used in link?) or out of date? --Sunpriat (talk) 15:51, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Hey Sunpriat
It is used on a page displayed when JavaScript is not loaded: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Addwatch/en&action=watch&uselang=qqx
Hope this helps, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 09:30, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
@Sunpriat: It appears that Trizek's description was accurate, and the existing qqq was inaccurate, so I've updated those messages at translatewiki:MediaWiki:Addwatch/qqq and translatewiki:MediaWiki:Removewatch/qqq. Cheers. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 17:28, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
@Trizek (WMF) and Quiddity (WMF): Ok, I understood where it is. Thanks for updating the description. There is a third message https://translatewiki.net/wiki/MediaWiki:Confirm-purge-title - when we refresh the page, we use ?action=purge and see these messages even if js works. Can you add to the description that these messages are available on the action= links? --Sunpriat (talk) 10:39, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
@Sunpriat: Done. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 17:12, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
@Quiddity (WMF): Administrators with technical rights began to delete (create empty locally) these messages (they are headers) in the ruwiki. They say that these messages (like MediaWiki:Addwatch) duplicate explanatory texts (MediaWiki:confirm-watch-top https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki:Addwatch/en&action=watch&uselang=en). I believe that removing part of the universal interface is bad practice. Is it possible to make these texts more different or is it normal to delete them? --Sunpriat (talk) 10:39, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
@Sunpriat: I've filed a proposal at phab:T234354. Tweaks/comments welcome. Hope that helps. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
