Description T. Gries 2004-10-26 07:17:49 UTC
The current Enhanced recent Changes view shows (in folded view) the names of the
most recent page editors afer the page title.

However, the name of the **last** page editor should be emphasized, eg.
underlined, in bold or at least on the first position.

The seems not to be the case now.

I propose:
Mark the name of the last page editor (who committed the recent page change)
clearly in the folded enhanced RC view, either by text attributes or by listing
the name at the first place in the row.

This is not a high priority change; it's something that somebody thinks might be nice.
Comment 2 Sy Ali 2006-01-25 04:29:53 UTC
Is this related to #3086 (Make Special:Recentchanges more skinnable) ?

Also, moving this recent changes into a table, where the list of usernames is in
one column, would sure help for visibility.

Not really that helpful, and I'd worry about adding more edit UI clutter.
