Description Hendrik Maryns 2007-01-17 11:11:47 UTC
If one looks at the page history and looks at a specific revision, on the top
above the diff there is the possibility to go to the next or previous revision.
 It would be nice if there would be a possibility to skip a revision (e.g. when
one sees it has been made by a bot and is uninteresting).  So some additional
arrows like ‘two revisions back’ or a little text box to choose how much
revisions to go back/forward.

Alternatively, add an option to hide bot revisions.

This sounds like a user case more solid than just jumping arbitrarily two revisions or more.

Is this a feature that editors are missing? fwiw I rarely go back and forth to check diff by diff. I look at a set of changes in one go.
