Description Adam Dziura 2007-07-01 20:45:12 UTC
Add to menu "personal tools" (my talk, my edition...) link to private sandbox:


In polish Wikipedia we use a JS to adding this link.

I wouldn't add this by default, but some good way of customizing the personal tools might be called for.  Perhaps a system message?
Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-07-01 23:04:28 UTC
MediaWiki has no concept of a private sandbox, nor any kind of sandbox. This would add superfluous clutter to the user interface. Recommend WONTFIX.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-01 23:10:59 UTC
Yes, the sandbox specifically definitely should not be added to the default software, it's a basically Wikipedian convention.  However, the ability to add arbitrary links to the personal toolbox might be useful, especially on a per-user basis (it is after all a *personal* toolbox) but also on a per-site basis.  Currently it can be done with JavaScript, but that's not ideal for accessibility, etc., especially for defaults.
