Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Admins and patrollers/Remember previous deletion reason/Proposal

  • Problem: When deleting a large amount of pages for the same reason by hand, having to open the drop-down menu and select the same reason over and over again is cumbersome and error-prone, especially considering that the deletion reason cannot be changed.
  • Proposed solution: Instead of always defaulting to "Other reason", the reason selected by default should be the one used in the previous deletion. This feature could be made opt-in so that it first has to be activated in one's preferences. The text box under "Other/additional reason" should keep being filled out the same way as without this feature.
  • Who would benefit: Administrators.
  • More comments: This feature could be generalized in order to pertain to more actions (such as moves or protections). The benefit is however arguably lower for those.
