Enable Merge gadget as default
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Today there are still a lot of uncompleted merges, I think it will help a lot if the merge gadget was enabled as default. There are a few questions:

  • Enabled as default for all users (including anonymous users)?
  • Does the code have a big impact on the loading speed?
  • How many wrong merges can we expect compared to the current situation?

The gadget was recently rewritten to OOjs, but could use a review.

This is not that important, but should be considered

@PokestarFan Please stop triaging issues. You are being disruptive.

I do not see now any objection to do it. Very useful and well done tool

I am dealing with undoing a lot of bad merges where people merge two items that have little to do with each other, like item for painting of a person with the item for a person, etc. Before we make it even easier for new users to merge, we should get a system in place for easy unmerging.
