Description Brian Jason Drake 2005-03-20 07:50:06 UTC
How to reproduce: Access the URL 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?
title=Special:Contributions&offset=<offset>&target=<usernam
e>

Actual behaviour:

The following message appears: "Showing below up to 50 
results starting with #(<offset> + 1)."
Then the following appears twice: "View (previous 50) 
(next 50) (20 | 50 | 100 | 250 | 500). (hide minor edits | 
bots | logged in users | patrolled edits )"

Expected behaviour:

The last 50 results are shown.

This is probably because we do not want to count the total number
of contributions which is needed to detect the upper limit.

How hard is it to count the total number of contributions? Is it 
harder than starting at a particular number? People like to count 
the total number of contributions anyway, for showing off and for 
considering requests for adminship.

Special:Contributions no longer accepts number of edits as the offset parameter, 
therefore this is no longer an issue.

The bug has been fixed in MediaWiki 1.5 beta, but not all Wikimedia 
sites have been upgraded.
