Description SJ 2009-07-21 03:11:27 UTC
Here are two examples of views of contributionHistory that refuse to go further back in time (the 'earlier' link does nothing):

In each case, url-hacking by decrementing the offset works.

Looks like has long since replaced that page.  And since its working (at the moment), resolving.
Comment 2 Nemo 2012-08-23 19:52:56 UTC
It didn't replace it, Special:ContributionHistory was disabled because of performance reasons (it almost brought wikis down) and never re-enabled after that, if I remember correctly.
But yes, as long as there are no plans to re-enable it this bug makes no sense obviously.

I've added at note:
