            Bug ID: 59853
           Summary: Should say "Thanks" instead of "OK" in confirmation
                    dialog
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All

This is cosmetic, but OK/Cancel dialog boxes are really Not Cool (tm), because
there is some extra cognitive load in figuring out what "OK" does. All the
major platform's user interface guidelines recommend labeling buttons with
active verbs relevant to the action - in this case "Thanks". 

[An action this harmless should not even have a confirmation dialog, just undo
instead. But I realize having an undo option is probably a lot of work, so not
going to file that request now.]
