[Create Userscript] To Help With Wiki Text Formatting Markup

I believe this will help new wiki contributors and existing editors improve on wiki pages faster if a userscript existed to condense the formatting markup into buttons.

From: Help:Formatting - MediaWiki

Selecting text and clicking a formatting button would place markup around the selected text rather than the editor manually typing the formatting.



It reminds me of the script I made for the old PunBB forum, I loved that mb. PUNBB FORUMS ENHANCER:

But MB wiki is from a big wiki software, same as Wikipedia, no? MediaWiki?
Iā€™m pretty sure it could be just a matter of changing some settings to activate a toolbar, no?
