Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-07-02 09:49:06 UTC
Hallo!

After vacation you might want to see the changes of some pages starting at your
last contribution.

Another benefit of having a filter for own contributions in "&action=history"
(at a certain title) would be easy identification of your work there.

Regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 1 T. Gries 2005-07-02 10:14:24 UTC
Hi Reinhardt,

this _could_ be implemented in EnotifWiki in that way: own contributions +
last-seen-revision number

I'll think about this additional feature right _now_ because I support your idea.

Currently, only _watched_ pages keep an identification (in the database) about
the last version, the watching user actually saw (MediaWiki special edition
EnotifWiki see http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enotif  ). I simply need to extend
the own contribution list also with this memory; until now, I didn't check how
exactly one's own contributions are marked in the database, but will have a look
into it.

(There is a chance, that it is easy to implement in EnotifWiki)
Comment 2 T. Gries 2005-07-02 10:38:09 UTC
Tables page, revision and text stores such information - table revision column
rev_user could be used for that.

I propose to <bold>own contributions</bold> which have unseen changes and will
try to find a database-effective solution for it. Any help is appreciated.

Targeting this for 1.20 and bumping importance a bit. This type of feature is important for user retention, surely. You can't make neat tools like "what how you improved this article" if you can't filter &action=history (or Special:Contributions by page, which I guess is a separate bug).

Yes, separate bug for Special:Contributions: bug 10788.

And that comment should obviously read switch "see" for "what".
Comment 5 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-03-06 00:13:42 UTC
Indexy stuff for bug 10788 has been recommitted
Comment 6 Krinkle 2012-03-06 02:33:29 UTC
Looking for disambiguation. This bug is for:

* Ability to filter (as in, don't show other stuff) only your own edits to an article from action=historuy
-- this needs DB support, but that'll be done as part of bug 10788
-- Would only need a link to set user=current user

* Ability to highlight unseen edits (not filtering but styling them differently)
-- Isn't this done already? Edits made since the last time you visited the page have a special class name and are highlighted (depending on the CSS) on action=history (See attached screenshot)
