Broken tooltips for timecodes

Hi, can you explain to me what the following template styles from the mainpage are trying to do ? Currently they target all their div/img children elements instead of a specific child, and it's breaking the new video player.

#mf-vid-vid div {
	max-width: 100%;
#mf-vid-vid img {
	max-width: 100%;
	height: auto !important;

@TheDJ: Where are these defined? I have no idea out of context, but the nearby rules or the page history may help. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:58, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
You moved the CSS into Template:Main Page Template/styles.css, but I'm not sure where it came from. The problem is that it messes with the dimensions of divs etc, causing issues with some of the controls of the new player. See also screenshot added. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 08:19, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
@TheDJ: Thanks! It was me entirely, without any source. I made this change because the MOTD has a fixed width, which is potentially wider than the screen, so I wanted it certainly not exceed it.
/* keep wikitext div not exceed room available, it doesn’t have any identifier yet :( */
#mf-vid-vid > div,
/* keep Kaltura not exceed room available */
#mf-vid-vid .mediaContainer,
#mf-vid-vid .mwPlayerContainer,
#mf-vid-vid .PopUpMediaTransform,
/* keep VideoJS not exceed room available */
#mf-vid-vid .video-js {
	max-width: 100%;
#mf-vid-vid img {
	max-width: 100%;
	height: auto! important
seems to fix the issue, I don’t see any side effect of the img rule (I cannot publish myself in the TemplateStyles page, as it got cascaded protection in the meantime). By the way, I’d much appreciate your opinion at Talk:Main Page#Remove mobile special casing (this specific change was also to make the Commons main page more usable on mobile). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 00:09, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes that should work I think. I'll take a look at the the main page discussion. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 09:43, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: I still do not see a real reason for these rules. Have you a screenshot? If there is a real glitch, this should be reported/fixed to the player extension instead of hacking the main-page-css. For now, I have removed the rules. -- User: Perhelion 09:16, 2 August 2019 (UTC)


Overflowing player

@Perhelion: The issue has nothing to do with the player, so it cannot be fixed there, it’s absolutely Commons-specific. In fact, it’s not even really a bug, but rather a design decision. The MOTD’s width can only be set to a fixed value (it makes little sense for audio, but it’s important for videos and static images, where the preview image should be generated in that size), but we don’t want it to run out of narrow screens, and this is what these CSS rules are for. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:08, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

I inserted the code, anyway it should be a rare case for this small view (in window mode? Mobile it looks fine). The "img height" seems not that important (as it only slightly shifts the aspect ratio), especially as it removes the default size for everyone (and also affects the small icons inside the player). -- User: Perhelion 21:03, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
@Perhelion: I don’t see any differences between mobile and desktop view: VideoJS has black top and bottom padding, which is not nice, but certainly not as ugly as the Kaltura player, which stretches. Yes, on mobile as well, and it’s quite noticeable at 375px screen width (iPhone X/Xs). I haven’t found any issues, in contrast, with the proposed height:auto!important rule. What icons does it affect? It should have effect only on images which have explicit width and height set, and the ratio of these two values is different from the aspect ratio of the image file itself, which is usually a bad idea to begin with. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:12, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Translations:Template:Picture of the day/i18n/4/gaEdit

Hi, I removed the {{Speedy}} there, as this page really seems to be legitimate (see here) :) -- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 14:19, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

@Alno: See message documentation—the translation unit’s content is a page title, and makes sense only if that page exists, or else the top icon points to nowhere; this is the case for the Galician translation “Commons:Pictiúir an lae”. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:30, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
P.S. Could you please delete Commons:Language policy/ba as well? It contains nothing but my display title translation that should have gone to Commons:Language policy/br. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:38, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: OK, sorry for that, just for now I just replaced the translation content by the English version so that the link will not be broken. But I think that this template should be reworked in order to use {{Pg}}, which does the job in a more elegant way :) -- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 08:34, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
@Alno: Why is it better than simply deleting the page? It seems that the page name is translated, while in fact it isn’t. Yes, it would be better to use {{Pg}} or some equivalent solution, but it’s impossible as long as Commons:Picture of the day’s translations cannot be found programatically, because their titles have nothing in common. All translations have to be moved to Commons:Picture of the day/<lang> and preferably switched to use the Translate extension. It would be an improvement apart from this issue as well (e.g. easier to translate and maintain translations), but needs a huge work. (And what about Commons:Language policy/ba?) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 09:28, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: You're right! I've deleted Commons:Language policy/ba. About Commons:Picture of the day, I'll check how things are done and maybe I'll make some proposals on the Village Pump. Thanks for your thoughts and for your help on the translating tasks! -- AlNo (discuter/talk/hablar/falar) 08:39, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Information templateEdit

Hi, as you have been told previously, do not empty information fields. Jcb (talk) 21:23, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi, as you have been told previously, do not put LIES or NONSENSE into information fields. In this particular case, the work is clearly out of copyright, but stating that its SOURCE is a HUMAN DEAD HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO doesn’t help. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:53, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
This is your last warning, do not blank information fields. Jcb (talk) 21:55, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
I wrote with User:Jcb and according to his suggestion, I think {{unknown|source}} might be a solution that would be ok for you (for future). But adding no-source-Template or Edit-Waring is in my opinion worse than just emptying information fields. But you can ask the uploader to add a proper source. — Johannes Kalliauer - Talk | Contributions 16:39, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

@Jcb: Sorry what? A week!? For the first time!? For edit warring!? I don’t think it’s proportional by any means. By the way, I think you should block yourself as well, as you warred as well, and your edits are not less disruptive than mines. And you asked me last time to properly nominate for deletion, so I did so. Next time I won’t do what you ask me to do if you don’t honor that. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 07:57, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
A week is indeed somehow much, but as I can also see you are overheated, so a break time of 3 days should be adequate. If you contradict the decision you can requests a unblock. -- User: Perhelion 12:43, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
A week is quite standard for an offense like this, but an unblock can usually be achieved quickly by showing that you understand what you did wrong and by promising to discontinue the behaviour. An unblock request without these two aspects is usually unsuccessful. Jcb (talk) 14:45, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: And is it standard that if an admin and a non-admin user war, the admin blocks the non-admin? This was an edit war, nothing else. I still don’t think adding exactly the same text to source as author makes any sense, but I see you have too much power to make me possible to fight for my opinion. (@Perhelion: Unfortunately blocking doesn’t help cool me down. I know myself, and the inability to edit makes me just even angrier, so I request unblocking.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:42, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Are you aware that your previous actions obstruct maintenance, by cluthering the already severely backlogged Images without source problem category with files that do not have a problem? Jcb (talk) 14:50, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
@Jcb: No, and nobody raised my attention to it. This makes me accept {{Unknown|source}}. But not your method of duplicating the author, and even less your procedure of blocking me for a week for something you don’t like. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:42, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Varos vs cityEdit

Firstly, there is no differentiation between different size of Varos in Hungarian, but there most certainly is a difference between city and town in English, the language of commons. If you're not going to accept size as a determining factor, then we can delete "cities in Hungary" completely and just use populated places for everything, with a sub-category for villages. Secondly, given that you've only recently returned from a ban for edit-warring, you may want to be careful about reverting edits over and over... - Themightyquill (talk) 09:16, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
