Description MZMcBride 2008-06-17 00:13:32 UTC
Under the "Recent changes" tab in Special:Preferences, there is an option to set how many titles to display in recent changes. However, the value of this setting applies to all page histories, which is rather deceptive to the user.

To fix this it would probably require changing the tab name and / or the description next to the value.
