Description David Benbennick 2005-11-08 17:06:38 UTC
Page move rollback always fails with the message "Cannot revert edit; last
contributor is only author of this page." even when that is not the case.  For
example, [[Commons:User:Fred chessplayer]] moved [[Commons:Lennart Torstenson]]
to [[Commons:Torstenson, Lennart]].  Even though that page was started by
someone else, the move can't be rolled back.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2005-11-08 19:54:38 UTC
Rollback is designed to undo a contributor's edits to a page, not to undo
actions such as move. To undo a move, just move the page back to its old name;
the software will allow such an action without complaining or needing
administrator intervention.

Perhaps you're unaware, but a somewhat new feature of MediaWiki is page-move
rollback.  If you are an administrator at the Commons, then

http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AContributions&offset=0&limit=50&target=Fred_chessplayer&namespace=0

contains "rollback" links next to the page move entries.  These links don't
work.  Of course, it's possible to simply move a page back manually; the purpose
of the rollback is to make that process faster.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-11-09 07:24:23 UTC
You want the special move-rollback links in the page move log (Special:Log/move).
Comment 4 David Benbennick 2005-11-09 15:47:08 UTC
Oh, alright.  That's a bit confusing.  Perhaps the meaningless "rollback" links
next to page moves in Special:Contributions can be either 1) removed, or 2)
turned into page-move "revert" links.
