Description spyders 2005-12-27 00:16:25 UTC
Just a minor feature request, but given the introduction of a Newusers log, I think 
it would be a good idea to have links to contributions pages that are empty appear as 
red links. So, if it's linking to user Aerod, but user Aerod has never contributed, 
it would appear red linked. This would help as you could then use the newusers log 
and check new users' who have contributed only, instead of those who just registered 
an account. This helps vandal fighting.

Might go hand-in-hand with the user states system I proposed at bug 4350 comment #5.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-27 02:52:16 UTC
*note*
MediaWiki is using (also) using *gray* for topics which does not applay in the
actual context. Example: "Newer revision→" for the last revision is gray. Then
just a text apears and no link.

"special:Contributions/Foo" is a special page. It can not be edited. This is why
it should not be red.

*question*
Is this request just about [[special:Log]] or also about User contributions in
the "toolbox"?

How is that at all relevant to *this* discussion?

Having spoken to the person submitting the request in IRC, I would guess this
applies to links in logs, etc. but not the toolbox.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-01-08 13:51:36 UTC
This could work out to be too expensive to calculate when creating the links;
the linker code would have to do a count on the fly.
Comment 5 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-01-08 16:31:04 UTC
Well, don't we have the new edit count field?
Comment 6 Splarka 2009-05-23 23:08:43 UTC
Fixed in r19610 apparently. Also see followups such as r32996 and r33006 (so it isn't used many places other than Special:Log/newusers afaik).
