Description Carl Fürstenberg 2007-02-27 18:30:48 UTC
Watchlist and RC has as you know display of bytes changed on that revision. I
would propose that simlar functionallity is to be added to history page as well.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-02-28 09:56:17 UTC
Requires schema change.
Comment 2 Phil Boswell 2007-02-28 10:02:25 UTC
Would it be possible to display these figures for those revisions recent enough to 
have this information available? I understand they, or the data used to derive them, 
are stored in the "Recent Changes" table: would this information be useful for any 
revision old enough to have dropped off there?

Why I wanted this feature, is when multiple vandalism occur on a page, to
identify first good revision.
Comment 4 Carl Fürstenberg 2007-06-30 23:13:45 UTC
This bug seems to have been fixed (as there are since a time ago now size displayed in the page history)
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-07-01 15:34:42 UTC
In fact, it hasn't; page histories show the size of each revision, but won't show the difference in size between them. Then again, whether we want this is up for debate...having the size seems more useful to me, and having the change sizes would then be redundant.
Comment 6 Huji 2007-07-01 18:04:51 UTC
Also, a user JS can calculate and show the size changes, hence putting the load on the client (rather than the server) side.
