Event Timeline

The blue box appears because of custom styling for discussions on fr.wp. But the underlying issue is in our code, we don't properly clean up cancelled replies. You can also see similar issues when replying to a comment in a bullet list on any wiki (after closing the reply box, some extraneous bullet points will remain visible).

@matmarex can you confirm the following are true?

  • Currently, the discarded reply "traces" are only visible to the person who drafted the comment
  • Currently, the discarded reply "traces" disappear once the the person who drafted the comment refreshes the page

Yes and yes.

Gotcha. I'm moving this to "Required before release" (perhaps this was your intention in marking the priority as "High"?).

While this behavior isn't "breaking" by any means, I'd like for people to have confidence the core parts of the workflow (e.g. writing a comment, cancelling a comment, publishing a comment, etc. ) work in the way they expect them to.
