Description Thunderhead 2007-10-20 04:50:26 UTC
When searching for "Special:Log/Jimbo Wales", a blank version of the log (shown at Special:Log) comes up, while it should come up with "Jimbo Wales"'s actions on that wiki.
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2007-10-21 19:57:44 UTC
INVALID?

[[Special:Log/Jimbo Wales]] shows all entries that have "Jimbo Wales", as their action, like [[Special:Log/delete]] shows all deletions. Changing the behavior would cause ambiguities if users start calling themselves "delete" (or move, upload, etc.).
Comment 2 Thunderhead 2007-10-22 22:35:24 UTC
Well, wouldn't those be improper usernames anyway? All usernames need to start with a capital letter for the software to recognize them (as far as I'm aware).

Rights can (AFAIK) also start with a captial letter. There's just some unwritten rule to always use lower case only, but extensions might break that code. 
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-10-23 17:37:58 UTC
Well, that would of course be a factor if we were talking about user rights, but we're not; we're talking about log names, which are a different kettle of fish. Please don't inject misinformation into the discussion.

I would be inclined to discourage mixing the semantics of the parameters based on case alone.
