Show which usergroup's permissions are being edited in ManageWiki
Open, LowPublic

Description

The Boss tells you to give permission A to Users, and permission B to Bureaucrats, so

  1. Visit e.g., https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/permissions
  2. Select User and Submit.
  3. Get a phone call. It's your partner. They say they've burnt dinner and don't know what to do. Your mind wanders.
  4. Back on the screen you complete your job and click Submit.
  5. The next day the boss calls you in: you gave the permissions wrong!

I'm sorry, the pages look the same! There is no name at top saying which one one is editing.

Yes there is. It's in the URL bar.

Not all browsers at all times show the URL bar, plus what other web page relies on the user's critical grasp of the URL bar?

Well can't you even remember what button you pushed Users, or Bureacrats?

I did, but then I got a phone call.
