Could someone please remind the nice folks at Phacility that "Ignore Conflict" should actually ignore timezone conflicts? That is, it should ALWAYS ignore the timezone conflicts, and not have to be repeatedly told to ignore the conflict over and over. "Repeatedly telling" ≠ "ignoring".

Whatamidoing-WMF updated subscribers of T206550: Identify target wikis for mobile editing improvements.

Thanks for the quick reply, Deryck. I think that the first useful thing that you can do is to try the visual editor on a mobile device, using mobile site. (Find a phone or tablet, go to the mobile site, log in, open the wikitext editor, and switch to the visual editor mode in the toolbar, and try to improve the article.) That'll give you a feel for what it can and can't do right now. Anything that's bad/awkward/broken can be reported here. @dchan is the best person to ping if you have problems with normal typing.

I can't reproduce this in Safari 12 on macOS 10.13. (It just ignores my hand-typed section headings.) Do you have browser information?

Whatamidoing-WMF added a comment to T209217: Enable WikiEditor by default in new installs of the MediaWiki bundle.

Do you want ‘install it by default’, maybe? Merging a specific extension into core would just bring the same problems with regards to old toolbar.

What problems exactly? My understanding is that the "classic toolbar" was removed for maintenance reasons. Given that we have to maintain WikiEditor one way or another, where it lives is less consequential.

The team isn't going to work on this (directly) for the foreseeable future, so I'm going to resolve this.
