Description halpins 2005-09-27 16:30:27 UTC
On "User contributions" pages, each line does not 
include the date of the most recent later edit. 
Editors may periodically use their "User 
contributions" page to see if others have 
subsequently edited the same articles.  Without 
actually going to the article itself, they can't 
determine whether that has occurred since they 
last checked. This step could be eliminated by 
adding the date of the last subsequent edit to 
each line of the "User contributions" page.  I 
propose that this change be made.

This is what watchlists are for.
Comment 2 halpins 2005-09-27 16:36:28 UTC
Not for anons.
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-09-27 16:37:48 UTC
Anyway, such a thing would be super-expensive to do with the current database
schema, marking this as RESOLVED LATER.
Comment 4 Bartosz Dziewoński 2012-11-13 17:41:45 UTC
Reopening with lowest priority. Has the schema changed much in the last seven years?

Or maybe this should just be wontfixed? As pointed out, that's what watchlists are for, and one can easily register.
Comment 5 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-16 14:15:10 UTC
Marking as WONTFIX, then. Contribution lists include information whether the edit is the last on the page (bolded "(current)"), which should be enough for "casual" browsing. If you need more functionality, use the watchlist.
