Possible issue with Visual Editor[edit]

Using: Chrome: 112.0.5615.50, Windows 10 (64-bit), Vector legacy (2010)

I know that there are limitations with Visual Editor and templates but I've started to notice it acting weird on a few specifically. If you edit certain templates with Visual Editor, it will most of time, mess up the parameter spacing and hidden comments that may also be in the template. Below are the templates I've seen the most effected by VE; I would surmise there are a lot of other templates which can get messed up regarding the hidden comments and parameter spacing in them.

Template:Infobox settlement: Removes parameter spacing; messes up hidden comments (Example).

Template:Infobox U.S. county: Doesn't create a new line for each new parameter added (Example)

Template:US Census population: May mess up the parameter spacing (Example).

Template:Jct: How the template is viewed in VE mode means the parameter order get reversed (Example).

Other: If imputing bullet points manually, user can create multiple different bullet "charts" which don't merge into a single "chart" (Example).

To my best knowledge, these issues don't hurt the contents of the template if in "Read" mode (expect for the bullet point issue), but it does mess up the template layout which could be a problem for other users. I'm concerned that, due to the nature of the issue and amount of bytes it add/removes, Wikipedia might incorrectly ping newer users edits as vandalism and led to edit reverts or bans (which is unfair since many don't know). I've tried to minimize using VE with templates now but I've seen many others who use VE and unintentionally mess up the template(s). All in all, not an immediate concern, but it might be good to investigate the issue in the future. Thank you for your time; have a good day.

In the loanwords section, it needs to be reviewed and revised as the amount of misinformation in this section is overwhelming.[edit]

The whole article needs review from a group reputable linguists from universities in the Philippines as the sources provided are debatable, baseless, contradictory and at times the sheer incompetence of the previous writer of this article is ludicrous.

Report uncited information[edit]

Hi! I would like to report an issue of uncited information. Canaletto's work is claimed on this page to have anticipated the impressionist movement. This information is not found anywhere else online (primary source), nor discussed in secondary sources and is seemed to have been made up on this page. Internet searches mostly become self referential to this page. There is no option to indicate "citation needed", so I am not sure if I can just delete this information (I do not want to commit an egregious act of censorship). Let me know what I can do about this, or if you can handle it on your end.

Thanks, Frequent Wikipedia user. (talk) 02:45, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
