Forum:Rollback with custom Change Summary
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Uncyclopedian vandalism police (with the
rollback permission) see a "rollback" legend in diffs and at Special:RecentChanges. This lets them quickly revert an edit or a string of consecutive edits by the same user. The benefits over Undo are:
- Rollback works with a single click.
- Rollback marks the rolled-back edit(s) as "patrolled." With Undo, you have to mark each edit manually so other patrollers don't review the edit(s) again.
- Rollback doesn't open an edit window.
- Undo is a regular edit that adds the article to your Watchlist (though you can set My preferences so that editing an article doesn't automatically add it to your Watchlist).
The liabilities are:
- You sometimes roll back more than you intended; for example, when looking at a RecentChanges listing that doesn't go all the way back.
- You can't write a Change Summary.
As registered Uncyclopedians are usually entitled to an explanation when their edits are undone (and it is neighborly to give even Anon a reason), this problem disqualifies Rollback for many uses.
To pick up this behavior, you need to create a file that depends on your user name and on the Uncyclopedia "skin" that you are using (which is shown in My preferences). For example, mine is
User:SPIKE/uncyclopedia.js. The file must contain at least the following line:
importScript( "User:Furry/customRollback.js" );
There is a way to customize the effect, documented at UN:HAX. 11:16 8-Jun-13
- Brilliant work! And a much better user experience to understand the “why” of a rollback. Give that man/woman/fetish a cookie! • Puppy's talk page • 04:21 08 Jun 2013
