I am obviously editing whilst tired and distracted.

I was trying to create Thomas Burns (Scottish miniister) but have mis-titled it as Thomas Brown (Scottish minister)

I am not sure how to change titles... can you assist.

thank you --Stephencdickson (talk) 21:08, 16 June 2015 (UTC)


Hi LadyofShalott. When you have a chance, would it be possible for you to copy the deleted Christy Ohiaeriaku to my userspace? Thank you. Hmlarson (talk) 08:02, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Hmlarson, see User:Hmlarson/Christy Ohiaeriaku. LadyofShalott 16:20, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Double confirmations[edit]

Hi, Lady. It's been a while!

If you've done any rollbacks on a mobile device lately, you've probably noticed that you've had to do a double confirmation. That's because recently, a few years after I wrote my little script, the Powers That Be decided that it would be a Good Thing to provide that functionality for everybody. So a gadget was added and turned on by default. (It can be turned off in Preferences under Gadgets.) The gadget is a little fancier than my simple script, telling you who and how many edits you'll be rolling back. So I'd recommend that you remove importScript('User:Mandarax/ConfirmMobileRollback.js'); from User:LadyofShalott/monobook.js.

Kelapstick, this also applies to you. I think we three were the only insightful people using my script. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 21:56, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks Mandarax, I have removed it. In reality I hadn't noticed, as I don't access my main account on mobile devices (I found it was too easy to mistakenly block/delete), and my sock account doesn't have rollback (I never had it until I became an admin, so I don't really miss it). I guess that someone figured your efforts were worth copying, and mimicry is the most sincere form of flattery. --kelapstick(bainuu) 22:30, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm curious.... Are blocking and deleting one-click functions, or do they require confirmation? Of course, no matter how many clicks (touches) are required, strange things can happen with mobiles, such as when I accidentally fell asleep with one and mysteriously ended up with a new Facebook friend. MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 23:28, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
They don't require confirmation as in "are you sure", but it does take you to a screen where you make your selections, and click block/delete/protect (depending on what you are doing). The easy block script is truly easy and could quickly go awry from a mobile (the new twinkle module operates in the same manner as garden variety warning does, so wouldn't be as much of a risk of accidental blocking). As you say, things can go pear-shaped in a hurry on a mobile, so I find it is best not to take the risk. --kelapstick(bainuu) 23:37, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
