Ah, got it. Works fine now, and python 3.7.3 is indeed there. Thanks!

I'm not 100% sure what question you're asking. I login as user "roysmith", and then run "become roysmith-test". I guess the later is what you're looking for?

How up to date are the replicas? When investigating abuse, you need the full history, including what has happened recently. If you need to use one tool to see the current data and another to see the historical record, that unworkable.

My comment about the automated tools was an afterthought. My main point was that as a human exploring user and article histories, being limited to 500 per page is a real problem.

I often want to search through more than 500 items at a time. I just click on the "next 500" that's available in the U/I, then add an extra 0 to the URL. Not being able to do that is a problem.

RoySmith added a comment to T37220: Allow per-session log out.

I'd really like to see this implemented. It's especially annoying in combination with T217914. If I mis-tap on my tablet, my desktop gets logged out too. I also have 2FA enabled, so it's doubly annoying. And, if I don't have my phone with me (or it's broken, etc), in a single errant finger-tap, I've inflicted a DOS attack on myself across my multiple devices.

RoySmith added a comment to T217914: Prevent accidental logouts on desktop Vector skin when using a mobile device.

Requiring confirmation to logout should be available, even if it's just an option you can set in preferences. On a mobile device, it just takes an errant finger tap to log you out, and that happens fairly frequently.

I'm not sure I'm parsing your question right, but there are certainly instances where I tap on a piece of text and the insertion point appears there without the magnify box ever appearing. And, in those cases, I never see the insertion point jump to a new location.
