Description Melancholie 2008-11-19 20:01:33 UTC
On RecentChanges, bot edits are marked with a bold *b*, minor edits by an *m*.
On History pages the *m*s are shown too, but not the *b*s!

If the *b*s were shown on history pages, provided with a CSS class, bot contributions could be hidden with JavaScript/CSS.
A proper software solution, like on RecentChanges/watchlist, is preferable, of course.

Example, where this feature would be very useful:

Minor edits could also be hidable.
Also, although not that easily, rollbacks.

That is because the 'bot' mark goes only in the recentchanges table (since it's only relevant there). The point, after all is to hide bot edits in recentchanges-based lists, not everywhere. Even if we wanted to do this, it'd need a schema change, I guess.
