The " Highlight likely problem edits with colors and an "r" for "needs review"" preference (under Watchlist) is supposed to show only with the RC Filters Beta Feature disabled, but it seems to (usually?) show either way.
For testing, just to make sure we get everything, here are the all the parts turning off the new functionality for "Highlight likely problem edits with colors and an "r" on the RC Page prefs when the new beta is on (as per T163025):
Users with the New Filters for Edit Review can not have this option. For anyone who has the New Filters or anyone who opts into it:
- Turn off the shading
- Turn off the "r"
- Remove the option from RC Page preferences preferences.
- But save the preference information and reinstate the preference if they turn off the New Filters beta. (If this last can't be easily done, it's not critical.)
