Jidanni added a comment to T13463: Add warning after null edit so that user knows nothing has been saved.

Currently if the user replaces a paragraph with ... oops, the same paragraph, an pushes Publish Changes,
he can rest assured that .... the next week someone will say the bug in the article is still there!

We have no reason to know why the user did what he did.
But it is not fair to the user to make him think it worked!
Yes, "no success message means failure." Tough luck.

Yes, if an edit is saved, one will see the message 'Your edit was saved.' momentarily.
So, no message means no save.

Jidanni added a comment to T283640: Help mobile users get out of desktop mode easier.

Yes, using an incognito window, the page loads fine, in Mobile mode of course. This proves that reason why my browser is in a weird state is that I must have swallowed a cookie due to some tampering I did earlier. Doesn't matter. What does matter is to help users get out of that desktop mode if they ever end up in it.

Jidanni added a comment to T283640: Help mobile users get out of desktop mode easier.

Anyway most important is to give the user a big button at the top that says switch back to mobile view. Because he certainly doesn't remember why his browser is in this weird state. And he has little chance of finding the magic cure way down to the bottom of the page where it says says mobile view.

Jidanni added a comment to T283640: Help mobile users get out of desktop mode easier.

It might be very simple for the user to find the desktop view link on the mobile version, but much harder months later to figure out where such a link might be on the desktop version to switch back to mobile as it is much harder to find.
