TSH and I were discussing how easy it is to accidentally rollback an edit from the RC since one click undoes an edit straight away. Should we ask Porple to add a confirmation screen before a rollback is carried out?
It kind of defeats the purpose at that point. I have definitely had a problem with the font size changing on the RC when I click on something, directing me to a completely different page. Getting that to be stable might help."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 19:45, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
The main cause of this problem is that when scrolling on a phone or tablet, you can easily press rollback without noticing. Also, I don't think having to click one extra button for confirmation defeats the purpose of rollback. It can still be used to undo many edits at once. TheSilentHero 21:33, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure how you can do it without noticing, as it takes you to a new page."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 23:24, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
I'm not sure how that happened either, but I didn't see it until I checked the RC and saw I undid someone's edit. Maybe I closed my phone's browser before it could load the page or something... TheSilentHero 18:05, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

As FM said in the section on my talk page linked above, the ideal solution would be to make it an optional feature. However, we don't even know if it is possible. So, does anyone mind if I ask Porple if it would be possible to do something like this? (I'll ask him not to implement it yet.) If it isn't possible, this entire discussion can be closed.

Yeah, always feel free to ask porple about this kind of stuff."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 16:00, 2 March 2016 (UTC)
There's a line of code that can be added to one's custom js which will ask for confirmation before rollback. Here's the code for anyone who wants to use it:
importScript('MediaWiki:Common.js/confirmRollback.js');
