felixernst added a comment to T11153: Unify sidebar appearance.

What about tabs on top? I'd say those should be used when they only change a part of the window and not the whole view (except in falkon of course),

How about only making security update notifications persistent? There is no real harm in missing non-security updates in my opinion.

+1 for the idea. Dolphin is often used to differentiate between drives so having the format option right there would be kool.
Should it open the KDE Partition Manager?

felixernst added a comment to T11179: Update wikis version and theme.

Looks great overall!
I just want to nitpick that the top-right search bar doesn't align with the sidebar. Adding the class "mr-3" to the form and setting the .form-control width to 255px seems to have aligned them for me but that is maybe not the right solution.

Do not use ceil until the first integer was reached
This way when a non-integer value like 4,5 seconds is entered
it won't show 5 seconds in the title for the first .5 seconds of
the timer.
I also made the math more easily understandable by extracting
calculations into separate lines.

What do you say it is down to one line now! Your latest changes really helped there.
I would have created this diff sooner but it's way too hot in my room and I had to rebuild all dependencies because I switched to developing in a virtual machine. So I was delaying this but seeing that it won't be cooler anytime soon I took this burden on me. :P

felixernst added a comment to T8809: Tor onion services for KDE websites.

I would have hoped for an apology at this point but it seems like you didn't mind belittling me. Instead you go right ahead and write another passive aggressive comment belittling me again. I try to argue about the subject matter and you ignore my arguments.

You seem to have some misconceptions about tor and onion services and the properties you get with each of them. I would be glad to clear them up.

If you would be able to identify any misconceptions on my part I'd hope you would have already pointed them out to me. Actually it is obvious to me that you don't understand the subject matter at all. I already had some of the evidence for this written out but then I noticed that it is mostly off topic and there is no point arguing with someone who ignores arguments.

felixernst added a comment to D21638: Display delay in the taskmanager.

I think your setup simply exposes that the assumption that 200ms is enough is not always true.

Agreed.

Is there something special about it?

Not really. It is a desktop computer with seven year old hardware. It is not even that slow and granted that the bug doesn't happen in a virtual machine on this machine it doesn't seem to have anything to do with speed anyway. It has Kubuntu 18.04 installed though so maybe some interaction between the taskmanager or panels and the up to date spectacle leads to the needed delay.
I don't see a bug report for it so it might really just be a local issue.

I don't think having two different behaviors is a good idea. I fear that one could think that one or the other are broken.

Maybe it will be a compromise with mouse scroll mnemonics mentioned above. And the bonus point: you actually can control value inside a SpinBox with the up and down arrows on a keyboard, so, in my opinion, arrows on the buttons will be a better match with that behavior.

The "Indeterminate" state is most often represented by a square. Maybe we should do the same? That being said I didn't find a location where this state is actually used.

I was already thinking about working on explicitly setting or not setting this flag at the right places. In particular I was thinking about dynamically changing this flag depending on the page in the system settings one is currently viewing so users don't get frustrated when no help is available for the current one.
Though concerning Dolphin the only windows that use "What's This?" seem to be Settings/Configure Shortcuts... and Help/Report Bug... and those aren't specific to Dolphin.
