Description Purodha Blissenbach 2007-07-09 10:41:52 UTC
In Special:Recentchanges, when I have "fancy recent changes" selected, and "show my own mods" deselected, I may see a line where e.g. 3 edits are shown as in: 

>  ! 09:33 Wikipedia Klaaf:Op dr Eck‎ (3 Änderungen) . . (+1248 Bytes) . . (Versione) [85.180.218.43‎ (3×)]

(taken from kshwiki 9. Juli 2007)
In fact, said anonymous user made ony 2 of 3 edit, the last edit was my own. 

When I follow the link - "3 edits" - I am shown only 2 edits, those of the anonymous IP user. My own edit, which came later, but is included in the count of 3, is not included in the diff.

This is inconsistent, and may be bewildering.

While users can be assumed to remember their own more recent edits :-) it may lead to confusion when older data is being inspected. In the worst case, one may not find to ones own edit again.
