Community Configuration: designs for a blank edit summary reminder
Closed, ResolvedPublic


User story & summary:

As an editor of Community Configuration, I want to receive a Reminder if I do not provide an edit summary, so that I can be given the chance to add an edit summary.

Background & research:

This task is important because Community Configuration changes can be very impactful, and editors should generally provide an explanation for why they are making a change.

Current reminder for mainspace edits:

Reminder: You have not provided an edit summary. If you click "Publish changes" again, your edit will be published without one.

TBD: Should we utilize this same warning, or provide a more custom warning? Should we consider copy that highlights that the edit impacts many community members? Something like: "This change may impact a large number of community members, please indicate why you are making the change and link to any related community discussion if appropriate."
