Rare edit conflict with rollbacker when reverting original page creator
Open, HighPublic

Description

  • X creates a page.
  • Other users edit.
  • X makes a bad edit, BAD_EDIT.
  • H uses Huggle to revert BAD_EDIT.
  • Huggle shows a confirmation dialog box: "The user has created the page. Do you want to nominate the article for speedy deletion instead of reverting?"
  • H thinks for a while.
  • Meanwhile, R is faster and clicks the "rollback" link. BAD_EDIT is reverted.
  • H says "no, just revert and warn, thanks". Huggle finally executes the action. Huggle reverts R. Huggle warns R.

Interesting, possibly related, HG 3.4.4. Clearly a technical issue, proven by the edit summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jason_Kenney&diff=884940008&oldid=884939997

I think we should consider updating the min-version setting on Wikipedia if/when this issue is fixed.
