I've just finished my latest script: MiniComplete. It's an autocomplete, like we have in the normal editor, for Special:Upload descriptions, article and blog comments and Special:Forum posts. I'm aware we only have the first of those, but the amount of extra code is so small it's really not worth removing.

If you want to try it out, enable it through the gadgets tab of Special:Preferences. Should this pass, I'll make it into a default gadget which makes it enabled for all users (I forget if anons can upload images). For those interested the code can be found [[MediaWiki:Gadget-Minicomplete.js|here]] with associated CSS [[MediaWiki:Gadget-Minicomplete.css|here]].

Any questions or bugs you find, please post below. cqm 15:44, 28 Oct 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Cool - Only enable it for autoconfirmed; anons can't upload (thank the lord)MolMan 21:06, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

It's currently set up to only load for users with the upload user right (it's easier to require rights than usergroups with gadgets). IPs would just get a login request on either upload page so it's not an issue. cqm 21:17, 28 Oct 2013 (UTC) (UTC)

Splendid - How often I forgot the exact name of a category and unknowingly left a red link... Wonderful! User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 06:55, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Closed - The gadget will be enabled by default and will load for every user with the upload user right. cqm 17:46, 10 Nov 2013 (UTC) (UTC)
