VisualEditor reload on save causes FlaggedRevs changes to seemingly get lost for anonymous users
Open, Needs TriagePublic


With the conventional FlaggedRevs configuration, anonymous users can't see unreviewed changes, including changes made by them. Normally, anonymous users can see their own changes right after saving them; VisualEditor sometimes causes the page to be reloaded after a save, which makes changes disappear. Given the almost-complete lack of communication about the FlaggedRevs workflow to the editor (there is an edit notice, but VE makes those less prominent; see also T179326), this is a pretty confusing experience.

Probably the reload should add stable=0 to the URL so the edit is shown. FlaggedRevs' communication to the editor is poor and should be improved regardless, but showing how the edit looks seems like a sensible thing to do.
