Should we uh, remove the "remove all followers from selected domains" button from the Follows & Followers page? 😅

I swear to god this isn't a Karen roast. I'm just worried an accident like that could be due to insufficiently clear UI (having the two actions near each other and the same confirmation dialog). It seems the consensus is that it should tell you "You are about to remove a whole bunch of people" with the exact count as a warning

@Gargron the most brutal subtoot i've ever seen

@dirt I love to banter with Karen but I don't think it's her fault if the UI allows this to happen

@Gargron @dirt it'd be nice if it took you to a warning page that shows you all the accounts that it would remove rather than just a generic "are you sure?" popup

@jimpjorps @Gargron @dirt also, the general UI problem, of course. "Are you sure?" will always be answered with "Yes".

What you actually need/want is an "undo" button… 😃

@Gargron @dirt I feel like honestly maybe it should have been like, "this will remove 200 followers, are you sure?" but also I am tired

@Gargron hhahahahahah idk maybe there should be an extra confirm button if there isnt one already

@Gargron just make the confirmation dialog more verbose

@Gargron

yeah maybe a warning is fine, that or making it a little less *right there*, I think it's a useful feature though

@Gargron you could have a Gmail-style "undo" meaning that the action appears to have been taken, but doesn't actually get done until after a time period, in case the person presses "undo" before the time is up
