Description Guy M 2005-07-26 19:39:06 UTC
Two things (both related)...
1.  In "Contributions" (HIST) & (diff) : HISTory's parentheses are not part of the 
link, in the DIFFerence link, they are.

2. User Contributions page layout is nicely designed, Recent Changes and Watchlist 
should follow suit.  Take a look at the following examples, Which is easier to read?

12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name45634345312 (summary) (top)
12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name453214 (summary) (top)
12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name434534502243456354 (summary) (top)

Recent Changes:
12:34 Page Title43783 (diff; hist) . . User Name43484 (Talk) (summary)

It's been rather well-established as of late that users don't like us messing
about with the appearance of change lists...
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-07-20 17:43:50 UTC
Changed the links on Contributions to (diff; hist) in r37872.  Didn't address the RC/watchlist display suggestion of putting the diff/hist links before the page title, but that makes a lot of sense.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-07-21 22:39:34 UTC
Reverted that change for now (r37898) given that default and enhanced recent changes do it differently -- the original contribs list style matches that of default recent changes.

Comment 5 Raimond Spekking 2009-12-30 13:49:08 UTC
Done in r60512.
Swap links of hist & diff location on Special:Contributions for consistency with RC/WL
Now RC/WL incl. enhanced versions and Contributions have the same order of 'diff' and 'hist' links.
