Description AlefZet 2007-01-21 08:38:18 UTC
Contribution size on advanced RC in non-English wikis shows in bytes, like (+2983) it should be in 
symbols instead, like (+1431) (mesured by Microsoft Word stats). It related to UTF-8 Kazakh Cyrillic 
encoding prezented with 2 bytes, or to UTF-8 East Asia complex scripts with 3 bytes. For accuracy 
mesuring blank spaces souldn't considered, and calculled symbols only instead. Mesuring in bytes have no 
sence. Also enabling contribution size showing should be in User preferences. Ccontribution size showing 
need mostly for administrators only, it is redundant for anonimous readers.

It's not "redundant" for anyone, any more than any other of the information on
changes lists are. This is also bug 8436.

All our page size records are in UTF-8 byte size. It is no more or less accurate.
