Classicwiki added a comment to T211379: Let me visit a red-linked page without opening the editor.

I initiated this whole chain of requests (see T195914 and this VPT post that started this one). I am not quite sure what is being discussed anymore.

Classicwiki added a comment to T195914: User talk pages auto launch into edit source mode (caused by Twinkle).

To explain a little further, having to switch between turning VE source editing and an older editor is burdensome for me, I don't know if others feel the same way. Often in anti-vandalism patrolling you stumble upon new users who do not cite their sources or make a simple mistake in a positive contribution to the project. I could revert that user for lacking citations or any other guideline they did not adhere to, but I fear that it will scare away a clearly good faith editor. VE's automatic citation tool is vastly superior. I am less inclined to assist problematic edits or I can not attend to as many as I would like, if I have to switch back and forth. Auto-opening in source mode not only slows down the computer because of VE, but it can make it more difficult to see what level of warning a vandal has received on their talk page, which ultimately slows down anti-vandalism patrolling.

This might be the same issue that Johnywhy is experiencing in T195761: Bug: When a Talk Page is Refreshed After Saving Edits, it Re-Enters Edit-Mode.

Classicwiki added a comment to T195520: Multiple projects reporting Cannot access the database: No working replica DB server.

Still getting this error on Twinkle rollbacks while trying to combat vandalism: "Grabbing data of earlier revisions: [WwcShQpAIDQAAAg0YqwAAAGJ] Exception caught: A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software." Brought it up here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Twinkle#Rollback_error.
