@thiemowmde, as you mentioned, we will continue to work on this together: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/367320. Thanks :)

thiemowmde edited projects, added Wikidata-Former-Sprint-Board; removed good first bug.
thiemowmde moved this task from ready to go to consider for next sprint on the Wikidata board.

@Lydia_Pintscher, we have an incoming volunteer patch for this. Can you please decide on how to proceed here? It's a little more complicated because removing this unwanted "feature" does have implications we need to think about. E.g. what should happen to empty sitelinks when you can not remove them with the backspace key any more? I think we need to track this properly in our sprint and invest some time to get this right.

Thiemo, @Jan_Dittrich and I will sit down and have a look at it. Probably the week after next.

D3r1ck01 moved this task from Backlog to Doing [WIP] on the User-D3r1ck01 board.

Change 370808 abandoned by Thiemo Kreuz (WMDE):
[WIP] Restore add and remove feature in the sitelink UI

Reason:
I, personally, don't have time to continue working on this. I wish the Wikidata team would pick this up. But it's more likely this issue will exist until the UI got redone.
