Summary 0009159: entering WIZARD mode by accident
Description SCENARIOS
1. When I press Ctrl-Q to quit the game, it asks me to confirm by typing: yes
So if I happened to press Ctrl-Q by accident, it would be unlikely that I could then type: yes ...followed by the Enter key and then wonder "what just happened?"

2. But, if I happen to press the & key by accident, all that is required to continue is to press: Y (without needing to press the Enter key)

2b. Also, it is possible that someone (with big or fingers) could inadvertently press (by complete accident at ~almost~ the same time) the & and Y keys since they are adjacent to one another.

If this were to happen, the player would be in *WIZARD* mode and would have no way of doing an Undo
...and if they happened to be very much invested in a character with a realistic hope of making it out of the Dungeon with the Orb, their score would not be saved.

I'm guessing this has not happened since I did not see it reported in the 1st 50 results when searching with "Wizard Mode" ...but it could happen to someone.

my suggestion for a solution is to require the player to type: yes
in the same way that is required to quit a game by using Ctrl-q

0.16-a0-1997-g24f5ed7 does so.

I didn't see any reference to that when searching for "wizard mode" in [^]

That's because wheals made the change (in 0.16-a0-1997-g24f5ed7) in response to this ticket. :)
