Description Melancholie 2009-04-14 02:49:39 UTC
If intermediate revisions are not shown on diffs (e.g. due to .mw-fr-reviewlink), show list of intermediate users.

If [[MediaWiki:Diff-multi]] is shown, it only tells you that there are X intermediate revisions. If you are sighting a page using the .mw-fr-reviewlink for example (bug 16489), good edits that got reverted could be missed (or sneaky edits go through).
Please see

* Either show a list of intermediate users (if any different from latest), or at least show the number of different users (if different from latest) that edited those intermediate revisions. Show if the intermediate revs have been done by the latest user only, so sighters know.

That way, sighters will know if they should look closer (examine), if it's just a multi-edit, or if only trusted users are in between e.g.

The user names could be linked to the corresponding diff view [&diff=&oldid=] each (maybe bundled per user?) to quickly check a specific change.

Perhaps only the names of users without review rights can be shown.

Or not, if this is generalized to all diffs, which it should be.
