General comment: At my community (SqWiki) in many edit-a-thons that we've held, the phrase "edit it normally, like you're using Microsoft Word" gets tossed around a lot by mentors and mentees when describing VE. It is generally considered a very beneficial thing that when you're editing, the overall page layout doesn't change and you can view your changes in real time, like they'd appear when "printed". I think that whatever route is chosen to be followed on this (I do think we need ways to distinguish between two modes) we should be careful to preserve that characteristic as much as possible.

@Rjwilmsi, yes. I was thinking about newlines as the delimiter/separator. If we have 5 entries in 5 individual lines and try to have them pasted in normal settings, they get squeezed in 1 cell. Instead the initial format should be preserved and each line should be able to get automatically aligned in different individual cells, thus having them spread in 5 different cells.

Our CS1 redundant parameters in SqWiki went from almost 0 to 3k articles in around a week.
This link that was given to me some days ago by another user shows that there are more than 1k results only with the archive[-]url problem. And this is only for SqWiki that has less that 100k articles in total.

Was shown this task when I presented the same problem. It would be very nice if the matched case could be highlighted in Edit Filters. In SqWiki we have many cases when new users activate the bad words filter accidently because they create a full article on Content Translation Tool and one of the names mentioned there could be listed as a bad word in our language. After having written the full article they try to publish their changes only to find out they can't because of this filter and they ask for help. It takes quite some effort to find out what specific word caused the filter to activate and to solve the problem. Having this feature would tremendously speed up the process of finding false positives.

@Legoktm, to be honest, to me it doesn't look much riskier than the current power admins/interface admins hold. Even then, maybe we could take extra steps like only giving that privilege to crats or a new kind of user.
@Legoktm, Wikimedia sites.

I see... I'll try to talk with the creator of the extension to see if he/she can help with this.

Also it would be good for the tool to be able to be accessed from the tool section on the lower part of the sidebar. Or maybe have a dedicated place/icon on somewhere else similar to the "WikiLove" extension. The current methods to access it are by the drop-down menu of the contributions (the easiest way) and from the special pages but both seem a bit underground for the usual user. Seeing that many of our new articles are based on translations from other Wikipedia-s, we want this tool to be as easily accessible as it can.

I will actually. I'm not very well known with the Phabricator but I'll give it a try. :)
Oh, that's totally true! Hadn't thought of that! I'll deal with the configuration tomorrow for both sites and write again here. :)
Urbanecm, I've seen that page and was waiting to configure all the system messages related to it after the extension gets implemented. Should I do it before? With WikiLove I've dealt with the configuration after the activation of the extension.

I was led to this task while searching for a similar solution in Wikiquote. I'm an admin at the Albanian Wikiquote and for the moment we have only 5 specific formats an article can be written according to its subjects. For example, an article about a movie requires different sections than, say, an article about a living person. We would benefit much if a special page about article creation, similar to the one described here, was made possible. We could present the user with 6 different forms with preloaded specific sections (one for the articles not belonging to the other 5 categories) and greatly facilitate the creation process. The preloading process would greatly help in the standardization process at the needed levels when a process like that is possible. For example, the Albanian Wikiquote would require a much detailed preloaded page because all the articles have the same sections. The English Wikipedia isn't that strict on that sense but it still has some specific sections that are present in many categories of articles depending on the subject.

@Aklapper, not really. It was one of the firsts options which were suggested at the drop down menu when I wrote "Wikimedia" at the category. Now I read what you mentioned. Thank you! :)

Came here to ask for the same thing. It would be a very useful feature at some cases. At the Albanian Wikiquote we want to be able to protect automatically every quote of the week page (but not its talkpage) as soon as it is created. If this feature was possible, we would just protect the main page (Wikiquote:Quote of the Week) and cascade the protection to all its subpages for them to be autoprotected as soon as they were created.

I tried using "safemode=1" and it worked. Now it always works. Is this normal/good?

Hello, @Aklapper! I'm sorry I've not been clear enough but I'm new around here and...
I tried restarting the router since I have a dynamic IP but it's still the same thing. :/
