Hey, guys. When I go to a page to read something and click on a link, i'm inexplicably editing a page after I click on it. It is becoming increasingly aggravating. Could I get some answers so I can stop doing this? Thanks. --Delta2371 09:38, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

It might be that your settings allow for editing by double-clicking the section header. Check the editing tab in your preferences to see if that option is enabled. --Kevin W. Tlk 09:43, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
Yes, Wikia turned that on as the default now, along with the "advanced" recent changes. Anons and new users have to specifically turn it off. It's completely stupid, considering no one would expect such behavior, it is inconsitent with all the other /<h\d>/ section headings, and it really doesn't do anything useful except annoy everyone. Really really stupid. --Bp 09:57, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Thanks, Bp. --Delta2371 18:48, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

...And I'm sure ya meant to thank Kevin, as well. ;) Anyways, I hafta agree with bp on this... these new changes don't really make much sense... at least change it from being the default. --From Andoria with Love 22:10, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
