There is no actual section on the page called "top" - and no one else would be able to follow it using that link. However, this all seems to be something that your gadget is handling, not part of mobile. Have you checked with the gadget maintainers?

Please clarify what you mean by "on mobile". Are you using the Wikipedia app, if so for what operating system? Are you using the Mobile Web?

A major use case for the local project is:

  • A range-block may stop the disruption
  • Check for collateral damage (i.e. non-disruptive contributions from the network) first
  • Decide if the range-block is the best option

Xaosflux added a comment to T356044: Avoid the possibility to give the interface-admin rights to users without autopatrolled rights.

In most WMF projects "autopatrol" is only in sysop, bot. I can't see why we would want to prevent a community from assigning someone this group if they want to without also making them one of those other groups. Additionally, the assertion that "everyone has" autopatrol is false. For example, see ruwiki. Not only do they have non-admin/non-bot intadmins, but they also do not have anygroup with autopatrol. dewiki is deprecating patrol as well (see T316393).

Xaosflux added a comment to T119241: Allow autoconfirmed users to report edits to oversighters.

On WMF wikis at least, each project with oversighters decides how they want to intake such requests to their workflow - it is certainly not consistent, by choice. Would this replace all of the other systems with some sort of of-wiki workflow (akin to perhaps the globalrenamequeue)?

Xaosflux added a comment to T357118: Block message in MobileFrontend does not show original block reasons for composite blocks.

This doesn't appear to be a bug; "appeals" of blocks are not a technical function and the blocking admin appears to be able to add any information, such as project specific appeal information, to the "Reason" field if they wish. Other than having the default message say something like "Contact your project administration" - where would this even go?

Xaosflux added a comment to T21161: Don't autologin if local account doesn't exist (don't autocreate if user doesn't explicitly login).

How do you propose to know "if the user did nothing in local wiki"?

Xaosflux added a comment to T354487: Make CentralAuth auto-creation non-blocking.

Communities currently make rules about what account names may be created on their projects, before overriding their decisions by allowing a trivial automatic bypass of their controls on WMF servers this should have a global RFC.

Xaosflux added a comment to T354466: Thanking "works" while logged out on the Android App.

Note: as logged out users can not actually send thanks, the action silently fails; while it should fail with the message "MediaWiki:Thanks-error-notloggedin" (same as if you are logged in and attempt, but during the attempt you are logged out).

The "thank" UI element should not appear if the user is not logged in, this would be consistent with other environments

"server time" should suffice? (e.g. the results of a ~~~~~)
