Description kissall 2004-09-18 15:00:17 UTC
Current user contribution page only shows detailed log for users' contributions sorted 
by time.
It would be better to provide more flexible and summarized views for users to see what 
he/she did for a day, for a week, for a month, for a topic, etc.
And I don't know why people cannot view others' contributions in mediaWiki. In a 
research group, the supervisors should have the right to view group member's 
contributions to know what a person did during a period. The same goal may be achieved 
by add and enhance the search function in Recent changes page.

What do you mean by "cannot view others' contributions"?  Surely that's what the
user contributions page is for?
Comment 2 kissall 2004-09-18 15:45:31 UTC
I mean I don't know how to see other users' contributions. I only know how to access "My 
contributions" now.

Go to their user page and select "User contributions" from the toolbar.

Comment 4 kissall 2004-09-18 15:48:30 UTC
Well, I found a hacker's way to do this just now: change the user id at the end of the URL:
index.php?title=Special:Contributions&target=userid
Is there any other more natual way to do this?

This is MediaZilla, not Wikimedia Customer Support. Please read the User's Guide
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki_User's_Guide or ask on IRC.

This item is now about allowing users to search through contributions by time
period or category.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2006-01-22 04:16:39 UTC
Restored from flood attack.
Comment 7 Aaron Schulz 2007-06-23 17:29:46 UTC
Done in r23297.
