event. Is that so?

There's been some discussion at
about the @wikisource Twitter account (and others).
I've just been made a team member of @wikisource, and we should add some
more people too.
The idea is that @wikisource is the cross-Wikisource account, and each
language Wikisource can also have its own account (e.g. @wikisource_fr
@wikisource_de, etc. here's a list I started this morning:
https://twitter.com/wikisource/lists/wikisources/members are there any
So, who wants to be added, and what are your Twitter usernames?
We'll also have @wikisource_en later today or tomorrow; same deal.
The passwords for these accounts are held by Aubrie Johnson, the WMF
social media person.
Most of the wikisource use the template header
<https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Template:Header> . In the desktop view it
creates a header box with optional link to previous and next page. It
automatically creates another box at the bottom with similar option to
navigate to next or previous page or to the top.
But in the mobile view only the header box at the top is visible. The
header box at the bottom is not visible.
In Tamil wikisource more than 60% of the views is from mobile devices.
Hence it would be nice to know a way to show the header box at the bottom
too in mobile view.
I don't know if this is a known issue. While proof reading using
the "Visual editor", while saving there is no option of quality flag. So it
is not possible to change the status of proofreading. This is especially
becoming difficult in "Tamil" wikisource. The new users are given an option
of visual editor. After that they are not able to change the quality flag.
I hope some one is working regarding this issue.
Is there any way where I can disable the option to offer the new users to
choice visual editor.? If the users wish anyway they would be able to
choose that in beta option. (P.S. I have admin rights in "Tamil" wikisource)
