Possible problems from exceeding 2^31 edits[edit]

We are getting really close to this limit. I looked around in archives and on Phabricator and even if the main database can handle it, there might be third party tools that need patching within the next few weeks when this is reached. Something to monitor closely. 07:32, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

For the record, the main task about this is T63111, and we’re tracking relevant values on Wikidata in particular on Grafana; you can see there that the recentchanges, cu_changes (cu = CheckUser) and text tables all crossed 50% already, and I didn’t hear reports of breakage about those.

(Minor correction: in fact the cu_changes.cuc_id is currently being made 64-bit, see T355609. That’s why its line in the Grafana dashboard cuts off ~2 weeks ago.) Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 10:34, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Well, it turns out there was at least one problem after all, see T364681 – we apparently didn’t have monitoring to detect when some other database table references the rev_id with a different type (in this case, a signed rather than unsigned int, so it overflowed too soon).

Item not searchable by initial part of Label or its alias[edit]

@Kimeerat brought to my attention a problem with a newly created data item. For Q125918173, the item is not searchable by the initial words or prompted when typing the Label or alias in the search box. I tried to remove and add alias, and added label in Telugu to try to solve the issue, but failed. Arjunaraoc (talk) 00:20, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Added this issue at Wikidata:Report_a_technical_problem/WDQS_and_Search#Item_not_searchable_by_initial_part_of_Label_or_its_alias as it is more relevant page. Arjunaraoc (talk) 05:14, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Testing reveals issue in EntitySchema extension[edit]

Hello. I just finished preliminary testing on an AbuseFilter. ABF 258 on Wikidata, but ABF 24 on As the title suggests it was designed to prevent unconfirmed users from creating new EntitySchemas. The result I got when I tried to create an EntitySchema was an error message saying "Internal Error. Runtime Exception.". The expected behaviour was an message telling me the action was forbidden. Disabling the abusefilter on allowed the unconfirmed user to create an entityschema. Reporting this here as "The Wikidata team" is listed as contact for the EntitySchema extension.

Note that this filter is currently active on Wikidata. The log suggests the filter had one positive match. I'm assuming this user got a very confusing error message. Infrastruktur (talk) 20:33, 19 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, reported with some more details at T365452. --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 09:55, 21 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Mobile editing inconvenient[edit]

Hello, for health reasons I can edit only from a smartphone, holding it close to my eyes, but the desktop view of Wikidata individual pages is very inconvenient because unlike Wikipedia and Wiktionary it doesn't show single column layout with font large enough for poor eyesight while in mobile view it doesn't show properties editing interface. Is someone working on fully mobile compatible editing interface for Wikidata? GregZak (talk) 03:02, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Have you tried the Narrow UI gadget in your preferences? Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 08:50, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@GregZak: Thank you for your feedback. In addition to trying out the Narrow UI gadget Sjoerd suggested, I'll add that we do have plans to improve the editing interface for mobile in general. Please see our development plan and previous responses about this issue here: Wikidata:Report_a_technical_problem/Archive/2024/03#editing_items_from_mobile_devices. -Mohammed Abdulai (WMDE) (talk) 11:16, 22 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
