The rollback feature (whose button is displayed in histories, diffs and one's
contribs) doesn't work when there is only one user who has edited the page.
Thus, why not replacing the 'rollback' button by a 'delete' one in this case?
That would avoid getting the error message « Rollback failed » and would make
the cleaning faster.
In the same place and all? I'd expect that to be disorienting if someone
absentmindedly tries to roll back a user and gets the delete button instead.
In my mind, if you want to revert one's contribs to an article, it's because
those contribs aren't relevant. If those non-relevant contribs have been done on
a new page, it seems to me the right thing to do to clean up the wiki is to
delete the page.
And « if someone absentmindedly tries to roll back a user », I hope he would
still make the difference between a button called 'rollback' and a button called
I'm inclined to agree that the delete link would be useful here. There's an
additional confirmation step in deleting that doesn't occur when doing a
rollback, so some sanity is assured.
Not worth the performance hit.
