  • Endorse. Maybe we can reduce the size of Thank button and add two more buttons Undo and Ref or Citation! Sheriff | ☎ 911 | 01:53, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Really, they can't? That explains a lot. Is this only in VE? There are many people whose only computer is a smartphone, so this seems like this is a systemic bias problem. HLHJ (talk) 08:12, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
  • FYI, If you use visual editing on mobile, then you have access to the full Citation functionality of Visual Editor. That is web only however, not compatible with the apps. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 14:50, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support It's technically possible to add citations on mobile (by typing the code manually) - and indeed I've done so - but it's not at all convenient or reasonable, so this is much needed. — Bilorv (talk) 03:47, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
