I noticed that all pages have a button at the top that says "Edit" like all the sections have. Everyone I have spoke to about it (including myself) dislike it would like to see it removed, so I propose that we figure out how to remove it (likely through some kind of script) and apply it in the appropriate Mediawiki page so that it apples to all users.

Support - I don't actually understand why it was added, there is an edit button at the top of the page already. EBKSSLIBucket detail.pngrwojy 00:08, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support a script Oppose adding it to Mediawiki - It should not be put in the Mediawiki. If someone comes up wit ha script it should be only if the person adds it to their .js. I don't like the look much, but I find it very helpful. Not all users dislike it so not all users should be affected by the 'fix'. And from what I've seen it's Wikia-wide. scoot4.pngscooties 00:13, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

There could be a script to override the fix to remove it. I assume the majority of users dislike it because from those I have spoken to, they have opposed it. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 00:27, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Just so everyone here knows, Wikia added this to increase activity and prompt people to edit more. What some wikis have done is taken the edit button out of the top of the page, and modified the new edit button. You might want to also ask Wikia Staff, namely Uberfuzzy for more info on this.

Do you have any examples? Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 00:28, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support - I really don't like it. ShinyUnown T | C | E 00:18, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Maybe make a script to customize it? scoot4.pngscooties 00:19, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - From what I know, FFXI has developed a code to make it look nicer. You could look for ideas there. Ajraddatz Talk 00:29, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support FFFFFFUUUUUUUU- It annoys me. I could edit just fine before this update. --Iiii I I I 00:19, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Awmg a duplicate edit button. Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 00:40, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support - Per all. I actually didn't notice it until now, haha.  Tien  02:13, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - For the time being, adding this code to your personal monaco.css page will hide it:

.editsection-upper { display: none; }

Yup, I had done that as soon as I saw it (actually, I used visibility: hidden, but that was so that I could still see the placement of other items I've been fiddling with in scripts). CSS is the solution to everything ^_^ I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 05:46, February 3, 2010 (UTC) 

Support removal - I don't think anyone --wikinewb or otherwise --was having a problem editing before this. http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/3921/thehimmemote.pngGone. 15:04, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support removal - It doesn't look good there Concerned Swiz Talk Review Me 18:01, February 3, 2010 (UTC)

Support Removal - It seems that ever since the news articles came out about Wikipedias editors going down, Wikia (the for profit branch off of WikiMedia) seems obsessed with edit counts. Firstly was the redirecting all logged in users to the "myhome" page so show recent updates rather than the main homepage and now putting ugly "edit" links all over the place. The RuneScape wiki as an encyclopedia rarely changes when a quality article has been written. We dont need edit links plastered all over the place, there is a perfectly good one a few pixels above. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 09:30, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Lose the silly button It is like 20 pixels away from another edit button. Who came up with this?--Degenret01 07:44, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - The edit button thingy has been hidden via [[MediaWiki:Monaco.css]] as it affects only Monaco skin users.   az talk   14:42, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
