Description Leon Planken 2005-12-22 21:51:47 UTC
For vandalism checking, it would be very useful if {{Special:Contributions/Newbies}} were includable in a page, like {{Special:Recentchanges}} and {{Special:Newpages}} are.
Comment 1 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-23 00:57:47 UTC
resolving as duplicate of
bug 2447: allow inclusion of pages with parameters

removing depends on
bug 813: make Special: pages embeddable as templates

because bug 2447 depends already on bug 813

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 2447 ***
Comment 2 JePe 2006-02-02 21:43:58 UTC
It is not really a duplicate of bug 2447, because it can be made individually,
just like the special pages mentioned in the initial comment.
Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-03-06 19:45:40 UTC
Hao Leon!

What exactly / What parameter do you mean with "''Newbies''"?
Is this a "''newbies group''" or a particular user?
[[Special:Contributions/Newbies]] would be the contributions of [[user:Newbies]].
Do you request simple inclusion of for individual users as
{{special:Contributions/Oliphaunt}} at [[:nl:]]?

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 4 Leon Planken 2006-03-07 10:47:39 UTC
I can't seem to find it now, but there used to be a page showing the recent
contributions of users who are deemed 'newbies' by MediaWiki.  It would be very
useful if this page were includable, if it indeed still exists.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2006-03-17 01:39:22 UTC
Question. How is the software going to determine between User:Newbies and
so-called new users?
Comment 6 Peter van Londen 2006-07-29 19:56:39 UTC
Reinhardt (gangleri) and Leon Planken (Oliphaunt) please take a look at this
page: this is the
page we are talking about, which should be includable.
Comment 7 Daedalus969 2008-12-19 01:50:07 UTC
Should this really be restricted to just the page listed above?  Shouldn't /newbies be just a param? ~~~~
Comment 8 Andre Klapper 2012-11-12 12:06:37 UTC
Leon: Could you please answer comment 6?
Comment 9 Andre Klapper 2013-03-25 14:00:42 UTC

Comment 10 Leon Planken 2013-03-25 14:35:44 UTC
I'm not very active on wikipedia any more, so I don't have a lot of interest in this myself anymore.

It's good to know that lowercase "newbies" should be used.

However, inclusion doesn't work, neither on nl.wikipedia nor en.wikipedia:
