Hello. When I made the edit on Help:Export, VisualEditor happened to remove much text that I did not actually remove while editing.


I did not realize it after saving.

Apparently, the same happened to the editor on that page prior to me, removing a similar amount of bytes from the page.


I suggest making the source editor default again to prevent such glitches that appear like vandalism.

Apparently, the same bug also happened to editors on Extension:MobileFrontend.


The edit summaries suggest good-faith edits, but much text has been removed in edits tagged as visual edit.

Use the source editor instead.

Yes, I will. Thanks.

But expectedly, people tend to use the default, which on this site is the Visual Editor that apparently is unstable and causes good-faith users to unintentionally vandalize pages.

I suggest the developers to look into it.

I assume that this is due to VisualEditor's lack of support for Extension:Translate.

Shirayuki, do you think that page needs an Edit notice or other warning about it?
