Description Puc conDoin 2004-11-23 21:41:34 UTC
It would be nice to have a feature where you can enter a certain date, to get
all (anonymous) changes of that one day. Like recent changes does, but better.

The problem is the limit of 5000 changes to be shown on the recent changes page.
And, when moderators didn't have time to check changes on a certain date, they
won't be able to get this list afterwards, because there are too many changes
after that period.

The best way I see it, is to have the option to select a date (23 july 2004),
and to select a period on that day (12:30 - 22:15). The list that has to be
shown can have the same options as recent changes does.

All the historical information is in the database, so why don't we make better
use of it? I think this feature would'nt stress the database so mucht like
recent changes seems to do.

Shouldn't be hard to do. Look at ApiQueryRecentchanges.php's rcbegin and rcend parameters.

Actually, it stresses the DB just a little more, but not noticeably.

This can be done with api.php
