Discussion

  • Why? I mean, I think there have been more calls to remove the 'minor edit' than to add it to mobile, where it almost never applies anyway just based on how much vandalism happens from mobile. --Izno (talk) 21:51, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
    I'm not sure if not supporting the feature for a subset of mobile users (seems like it's partially supported) is a good approach, though. If it's not being removed from MediaWiki, I think it makes sense to properly support it on mobile (especially given that it's apparently available in the mobile visual editor). Perhaps it could be hidden with CSS on a case-by-case basis, or the ability to mark edits as minor could be a separate user right if it is/becomes a major problem for vandalism.

  • I've noticed this missing. Yes, lots of vandalism happens from mobile, but discriminating against users by platform doesn't seem appropriate. I'd like to see this done. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 02:39, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
  • As someone who enjoys making gnomic/minor edits, and who sometimes edits on a mobile device, I like this idea. Noahfgodard (talk) 05:10, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
+1 to this! --Slashme (talk) 21:53, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
  • I agree that we should be consistent across platforms. The mobile editing interface needs much improvement. Lots of vandalism may happen on your particular project on mobile, but it's the only way many people in developing countries have access to Wikipedia. — Bilorv (talk) 18:04, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
  • FYI The minor checkbox appears in the mobile visual editor. ESanders (WMF) (talk) 17:11, 24 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Support Support, if it's useful on one platform it's useful on both. And it seems more likely that a mobile edit will be minor, given the interface discourages typing at length. HLHJ (talk) 18:14, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
