Parameters appended to special page urls should be passed to the target where
this makes sense. For example,
should load the history of my user page instead of viewing the user page itself.
This applies to Special:Mytalk (and less usefully, Special:Randompage) too.
Addressed in SVN trunk, r13956. We can now code certain of the redirecting
special pages to specify parameters from the request string which should be
carried forward to the redirect.
This still doesn't work with URLs like
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Mypage/monobook.css?action=edit . Instead
of editing monobook.css, it edits the main userpage.
Should be addressed in SVN trunk, r14142.
Would it be possible to subst Special:Mypage ? It doesn't seem to work at the
moment, but would it be possible to implement?
This would be handy *-self templates for images at the Commons, since the file
history doesn't transclude.
