wotte added a comment to T7593: Allow administrators to disable files to prevent "l33t w4r3z" abuse cases.

This issue stems from a conversation I had with a PI of one of the projects on which we're using Phabricator, and we're about to open the instance to a wider audience (not necessarily general public, but a wider audience nonetheless). His comment was basically, "Disable the upload button for external users." Note, here, that 'external' are still logged-in users, not "public".

One advantage of being able to edit diviner documentation in a wiki-style interface/editor is making it much easier to, i guess, create and maintain. For D9100, I had to edit the documentation, generate diviner documentation on a private instance, notice a mistake I made with remark up, generate it again, note another mistake I made, generate it again, etc. That's a pretty high latency cycle, and basically requires that anyone editing diviner documentation either:

The proposed #anchor# syntax might not be ideal, since it rubs up against a lot of similar syntax: #anchor is "project Anchor", ##anchor## is "monospaced text", # anchor is "ordered list item", and # anchor # may be "markdown-style header" at some point.

wotte added a comment to T4274: Creating a document from a link doesn't preserve case.

I haven't looked at the code, but I'd imagine that Phriction itself doesn't currently do a whole lot of parsing of the page content (beyond a diff of the previous content). I'd guess that a much cleaner solution would be to have Phriction parse the page after an update, storing the canonical title in the database for any new pages created. You could also do a couple other nice things, like letting the user know that they have linked to nonexistent pages - perhaps I made a typo in one of my links; there's currently no way to tell this now. It would also be nice to render links to nonexistent pages in a different color (red) so I can tell at a glance which links don't yet exist.

wotte added a comment to T4274: Creating a document from a link doesn't preserve case.

We could produce a link like /test_page/?title=TEST%20PAGE and use the GET title to prefill the title if it's present, but that's a bit funky. A case where it gets messy is if you write [[ TEST PAGE | Some Title ]] -- should we preserve the title, or the link case? What if the user types [[ TEST PAGE | click here ]]?

wotte added a comment to T4266: Clean up UI on grouped Timeline Events.

Of course, as a counterexample to my previous comment, when you are editing/creating a task/revision/whatever, it might be nice to be able to associate which "unimportant changes" happen as a result of each "important change", in which case @chad has a pretty good point.

It might be useful to create a taxonomy of things that can logically be part of a single transaction, and start the discussion from there.

Dec 27 2013, 2:11 AM · Design
wotte added a comment to T4266: Clean up UI on grouped Timeline Events.

Ordering events within a single transaction by importance might be a decent compromise, with the comment always being the "least" important.

Dec 27 2013, 1:25 AM · Design
wotte added a comment to T4266: Clean up UI on grouped Timeline Events.

I'll add that 'importance' in some cases can be somewhat context dependent; having a single "most important" change in each transaction identify the icon for that transaction deprives me of important visual cues for when I'm quickly scrolling through a task looking for certain kinds of changes: instead of looking for instances of a particular icon, I've now got to parse text, which is a lot of mental overhead.

Dec 27 2013, 1:23 AM · Design
wotte added a comment to T4265: Related events should be grouped in timeline views.

I see what you mean. I think something that would go a long way to fixing the way that last one looks is to align all text that doesn't have an icon with everything that does; text jumping between two different alignments is pretty jarring.
