Bug?[edit]

I can't change my preferences. I go here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences and try to change a preference - e.g. Hide my edits from the watchlist or the new Suppress display of the fundraiser banner and try and save and the changes aren't saved and I see this: Your password is invalid or too short. It must have at least 1 character and be different from your username.

Perhaps this language just needs to be changed to match changed requirements; my password meets the listed requirements. --Elvey (talk) 23:04, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

New feature: Widen search box?[edit]

Would it be possible put in a preference option to widen the search box in the upper right? I think many users would find this very useful. Thanks. --Albany NY (talk) 19:29, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

The two toolbars[edit]

Special:Preferences/Editing#mw-prefsection-editing offers two toolbars.

This talk page[edit]

Please add a link to this talk page from the Special:Preferences page. (Currently it is targeted from Help:Preferences, but there is no guarantee that that content won't change, and the link from there to here vanish.) Maybe this is a futile request due to cross-wiki reasons. Maybe Special:Preferences only changes with MediaWiki software releases or patches. Maybe anything that could be said here is discussed elsewhere. Hey, maybe this is the very least likely talk page on Wikipedia! — CpiralCpiral 19:51, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
