Xaosflux asked me to mention another account with a similar problem, User:Mountainsofpain.

Elitre asked me to comment here. This is just to confirm MusikAnimal's point above that the clickable link that admins see on pages with deleted edits—"View or restore [X number of] deleted edits?"—is not clickable with the new wikitext editor.

Hi Legoktm, you wrote that it was open for discussion because several places were notified, but none of these are where Wikimedia writers tend to hang out, and it's the writers who rely on these links. Can we hold a more central discussion about whether the ISBN and PMID links should be deprecated, rather than assuming it's a done deal?

Please read the close (note: automated or semi-automated):
Rjwilmsi, you wrote: "Other en-wp editors have asked to have the function accessible for manually-configured use, which seems reasonable to me."
The feature was added in 2009 because two editors on enwiki requested it. It triggered lots of complaints, all of which were ignored. In May 2015, Rjwilmsi wrote:
Rjwilmsi, thank you for removing it from genfixes, but if I've understood you correctly you're not removing it from AWB entirely.

Headbomb, the argument against making automated or semi-automated edits like this is that they can be done at speed and are therefore hard to undo.
The consensus of the RfC was clear that it should be removed, not made optional.

Could someone say what the status of this is, please? There has been very little discussion about it on enwiki. Editors who don't use citation templates use magic links for ISBN and PMID. There are around 340,000 pages using the former and 6,000 the latter. They are easy and fast to use, and it seems a pity to get rid of them.

Dzahn, thank you for doing this.

The information page says "After submitting the bug correctly, your list should be created within the next few days." What needs to be done next to make that happen?
