Any user with iPhone Edit in his or her signature or at the end of their post is using an iPhone to edit. There are some things you should take into consideration when viewing an iPhone edit.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The iPhone often auto-corrects words it doesn't know. If the edit had any words in it that are completely out of place, feel free to correct it for them, maybe leaving an asterisk or the like at the end of the word, and at a footnote at the bottom of a page linked to your user. If you really feel they might disapprove of your change, leave a note about it on their talkpage or under the comment. This can be disabled but is often used.
  • iPhone editing can be VERY slow. This applies when loading a page or file as well as lagg during typing. Huge pages can take an eternity to load. There is no way that an iPhone user can keep up with a regular computer or desktop. Take this into consideration when waiting for replies or talking in Yew Grove threads.
  • iPhones have limited battery. They can die VERY fast when connected to the internet and loading large pages. This is not a prblem with most other computers and rarely a problem with laptops. Bear in mind that if a known iphone user stops talking in the middle of a conversation, his battery or internet access might have failed.
  • iPhones SUCK at editing wikis. They take ages to load pages, ages to load up the editing screen, ages to access the editing window and ages to scroll down large pages of code to get where the user wants to edit. They then lagg a lot while typing, take a while to find the correct keyboard with the correct symbol and take a while to actually input that letter into the editing window.
  • It is very difficult to open and work on multiple tabs simultaneously. It is very difficult to manage a lot of tabs at one time, especially when one of them is an editing window prone to random reloads, wiping your changes. If an iphone user makes a red-link, please fix it up or if they reference an image, please find the image and insert the link it into the sentence.
  • Finger sensors aren't as accurate as mouse clicks. It is very easy to mis-click using the iPhone's finger sensor. Possible mis-clicks include pressing save, reporting vandalism accidentally and accidentally roll-backing a perfectly fine edit.
  • The iPhone uses Safari. iPhone users are only able to access the features of the Safari web browser which may affect what they see or are able to change in regards to settings and options.

Signature additions[edit | edit source]

Adding {{#if:{{{1|}}}|[[User:USERNAME/iPhone|<sup><span style="color:red;"> iPhone Edit</span></sup>]]}} to the end of your signature will help users identify when you are editing with an iPhone and therefore, when the above applies.

When you type in {{Signatures/USERNAME}}, this appears {{Signatures/<insert name here>}}.

When you type in {{Signatures/USERNAME|iPhone Edit}}, this appears {{Signatures/<insert name here>}} iPhone Edit.

IMPORTANT notes[edit | edit source]

  • In your signature, if you have something assigned to the first undefined parameter, you must change the number in the {{{1|}}} section of the code to "2". If you have something defined to the first two parameters, you must change the numer to "3" and so on.
  • You do not need to type "iPhone Edit" into the undefined parameter in use. You can actually type whatever you want. This is to make the notice consistent.
