Description Angela Holtmann 2007-04-23 17:47:12 UTC
As sysop you have a revert button, which is not shown to normal users. This
should    help reverting articles to earlier versions of the corresponding page.
In two cases, this did not work correctly: I wanted to revert my own edits from
the last version to the version before (also edited by me), but instead - the
revert took me to the very last version edited by a different user (which was
ages ago).

Here are the corresponding links:

where the wrong revert happened.

Note: this is not a bug. The "rollback" button reverts the page to the latest version of a different user. You 
can use the "undo" link, or simply manually revert to the correct revision.

Thanks for letting me know. I thought it had been different a while ago, but
obviously, I was wrong.
