Problem: As an editor who is looking at [Special:Watchlist/Special:RecentChanges/Special:Contributions/Special:Log or History or Diff] pages, the delayed banner-bump of CentralNotice appearing, sometimes causes me to mis-click on "rollback", sometimes without realizing it.
Suggested solution: Prevent showing CentralNotice on Special pages (either just these 4 types if possible, or everywhere), and on history/diff pages.
Notes: These are also the only pages (?) to contain the 1-click rollback links. These are also among the most link-dense pages we have, hence mis-clicking is more likely than elsewhere.
(Filed based on ongoing discussion at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Pages_jumping_around_while_loading and some historic reports of the same problem.)
- T32009: CentralNotice on [[Special:Log]] -- which seems to indicate that CentralNotice is currently not shown on Special:Log pages? But that might have changed in the 3 years since filing. (?)
- T126798: Add rollback confirmation to mediawiki software -- however this idea is not wanted by editors who need to do mass-vandalism fixes (the extra mouse-move and extra-click would make this much more complicated for them, especially when line-wrap is part of it)
