Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Editing/Expand "minor edits" checkbox-feature

Expand "minor edits" checkbox-feature

  • Problem: could be easier to keep track of recent changes
  • Who would benefit: everyone checking for vandalism, everyone wanting to quickly describe, what has been done within an edit
  • Proposed solution: add checkboxes and markers (like for minor edit and bot) e. g. for "spelling", "linkfix", "syntaxfix", "answer" (for discussions),...
  • More comments: I suppose by adding this the list of recent changes becomes even more sortable

  •   Support This would be beneficial for editors to mark their edits accordingly, and also patrollers to note if there are discrepancies. Sthakur88 (talk) 05:46, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

  •   Oppose After more than two tags you'd need a checkbox dropdown and then I'm not sure how this is faster than typing "spelling" in the edit summary. I also don't know why this would be more meaningful/readable than an edit summary to users patrolling the changes (I don't want to hide all changes marked "Fixed typo"/"spelling" because a lot of vandals use such a canned edit summary). — Bilorv (talk) 09:23, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
