Description Jason Lee, AllyUnion 2005-04-05 04:08:39 UTC
I would like to request a feature that allows the history to be presented as
oldest first, instead of newest first.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-04-05 04:52:48 UTC
What are you trying to accomplish?

Might it be better to keep ordering consistent, but allow to jump immediately to 
the earliest edits for a given page?

Currently, there is no fast way to query the creator of an article with an
extensively long history.  I just thought that if one can reverse the ordering
of the history, it solves that problem and adds another feature.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-04-05 22:00:03 UTC
"Adding features" is not a goal that should be followed for its own sake; features introduce complexity and bugs.

I can't think of any use for flipping the viewable order around. Skipping directly to the oldest entries sounds useful.

"Status" and "resolution" contradict Brion's statement.

I see a need for *alternative* order at many queries. This (history) is only one
of them.
