Description

I just edited https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Oval_Office_desks and after saving my changes, I was shown the "The page has been restored." post-edit notification. (Not visible in the screenshot, because it disappeared, bu you can still see the "venotify=restored" in the URL.)

The edit was done after switching from wikitext editor, editing a single section (VE originally loaded with this URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_Oval_Office_desks&section=2&veaction=edit&oldid=706030293&wteswitched=1).

This has happened in the past a few times.
