Rollback edit summaries[edit]

  • Voting on: Making the default summary for a rollback as performed by administrators and rollbackers to welcome the revertee to comment on the change if they think it was a mistake.

This is designed to make Wiktionary a more newbie-friendly place, so that newbies feel like they are welcome to discuss the change in question instead of being shut out and ignored.

Specific change:

Changing the content of Mediawiki:Revertpage from:

Reverted edits by $2 (Talk); changed back to last version by $1


Reverted edits by $2, restoring last version by $1. If you think this rollback is in error, please leave a message on my talkpage.

Please note that it will remain possible to keep the old edit summary, or to write a different one, by modifying your .js file (for example User:Metaknowledge/vector.js).

  1. Symbol support vote.svg Support --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:25, 15 August 2012 (UTC) - Note also that I am open to changes in wording, which can be done by consensus after the vote.
  2. Symbol support vote.svg Support. I'd have preferred a shorter text (see talkpage), but this is good, too. IMO future changes in wording need no vote.​—msh210 (talk) 16:59, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  3. Symbol support vote.svg SupportCodeCat 17:01, 15 August 2012 (UTC) (but I think it should be written as "talk page" with a space)
    Ruakh originally had it as "talk-page", I believe, but I shortened it. If it really bothers you, just fix your .js (in fact, editors who revert a lot probably should fix their .js so that it links to their talkpage, like my rollback edit summary does. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 17:10, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  4. Symbol support vote.svg Support. What msh210 said. —RuakhTALK 17:16, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
  5. Symbol support vote.svg Support. Tho future changes may not need a vote, a discussion should precede those changes - except for minor and/or stylistic ones. --BiblbroX дискашн 22:41, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
    That's what I meant, too, above.​—msh210 (talk) 22:42, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Passes unanimously. I have modified the page accordingly. Please note that wording changes can be brought up in the BP and handled by consensus. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:59, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
