QuickThreads is a script that adds quick links below threads in Special:WikiActivity. This script allows you to quickly remove a message from a thread. You do not need sysop rights. Feel free to post translations on the talk page.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global Personal
w:Special:Mypage/global.js Special:Mypage/common.js
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:QuickThreads/code.js'
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on Fandom
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


Features

The script adds a button next to each thread answer that will allow you to remove it after type a reason. You can also remove the thread if you remove the first answer.

Options

If you want to have your own reason by default or do not notify sysop that are notify by default, add this before the import statement.

QuickThreads = {
  message: "Your default reason message",
  'notify-admin': false
};

notify-admin is a boolean so if you want to disable sysop's notification, just put false and replace Your default reason message by your own message.
