Wonderful! I'm glad I could help!

dross claimed T6052: Collapsible elements: {| class="wikitable collapsible collapsed" does not work.

I see that MediaWiki:Common.js at your wiki does not yet have any content. Have you read the instructions directly below the section you linked on the MediaWiki website? The page section at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Collapsible_elements#Source_3 details that you must add the code on that page to your Common.js file for collapsible tables to work.

dross added a comment to T4971: Link to the same Privacy Policy language subpage as the site language.

It really isn't that unreasonable to link to the original English version for a few reasons. Firstly, it's the default Privacy Policy page. Second, there is a translation bar across the top of the page anyway. Finally, the English version takes precedence over others anyway.

dross added a comment to T4970: Recentchanges 15552000 seconds hard to understand.

A pretty major part of the reason I've seen cited for having certain information "expire", for lack of better word, is due to the fact that the servers have been known to run out of space or memory. Part of managing this problem is clearing old and likely unused, uncontroversial, and irrelevant data. It's really just working out kinks wherever possible in the least obstructive and destructive ways that are plausible enough.

The system listings will sort alphabetically by internal name, no matter what order they are listed in configuration. I'm not sure where else they are displayed, but most of it should be able to be changed via interface pages (i.e. MediaWiki namespace).

dross added a comment to T4897: Configuration in LocalSettings of the my mediawiki.

You can make a wiki publicly viewable, but restricted to editing via ManageWiki by marking your wiki as open and unchecking the edit permission for the * group (https://dreamsit.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/permissions/*) and the user group (https://dreamsit.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/permissions/user). This will configure it so that anybody can read, but nobody can edit pages.

I can see that the permission were removed in you wiki's log. It is problematic that the groups no longer show in the dropdown, especially as a default group.
