Description Happy-melon 2009-01-17 19:33:45 UTC
Currently this message is displayed for (at least) three different types of error.  There should be separate messages for each scenario.
Comment 1 Alex Z. 2009-01-18 07:03:14 UTC
Done in r45865.
Comment 2 Happy-melon 2009-01-18 09:43:41 UTC
Nice.  Do you think 'revdelete-nologid-text' should use {{plural}} in some fashion? Or since hiding multiple entries at once is not (currently) supported, should it just be singular?
Comment 3 Alex Z. 2009-01-18 17:53:38 UTC
AFAICT, the only way you'll actually ever see that message is by manually messing with the URL to add a logid that doesn't exist or some sort of strange situation where the log entry is manually deleted from the database between the time Special:Log is opened and the show/hide link is clicked. plural support might be nice, but probably not necessary.
