Description Meno25 2007-07-26 17:37:02 UTC
Please add a new option to filter [[Special:Allmessages]] by extension (MakeBot, Makesysop, Check User, etc). The page size is currently very large (332 KB in enwiki) and difficult to preview.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-07-26 20:04:08 UTC
Extensions tend to register messages prefixed with their own name (and this practice should be encouraged), so it's quite straightforward to pick out their exclusive messages on Special:Allmessages using the existing filtering option.

I'm not sure it's worth adding additional complexities to the message cache (i.e. in order to allow the indication of a message's source) to facilitate stronger filtering than this. If the existing prefix filter isn't adequate, then that should be improved.
