After vacation you might want to see the changes of some pages starting at your
Another benefit of having a filter for own contributions in "&action=history"
(at a certain title) would be easy identification of your work there.

this _could_ be implemented in EnotifWiki in that way: own contributions +
I'll think about this additional feature right _now_ because I support your idea.
Currently, only _watched_ pages keep an identification (in the database) about
the last version, the watching user actually saw (MediaWiki special edition
EnotifWiki see http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enotif ). I simply need to extend
the own contribution list also with this memory; until now, I didn't check how
exactly one's own contributions are marked in the database, but will have a look
(There is a chance, that it is easy to implement in EnotifWiki)
Tables page, revision and text stores such information - table revision column
rev_user could be used for that.
I propose to <bold>own contributions</bold> which have unseen changes and will
try to find a database-effective solution for it. Any help is appreciated.
Targeting this for 1.20 and bumping importance a bit. This type of feature is important for user retention, surely. You can't make neat tools like "what how you improved this article" if you can't filter &action=history (or Special:Contributions by page, which I guess is a separate bug).

Yes, separate bug for Special:Contributions: bug 10788.
And that comment should obviously read switch "see" for "what".
Indexy stuff for bug 10788 has been recommitted
Looking for disambiguation. This bug is for:
* Ability to filter (as in, don't show other stuff) only your own edits to an article from action=historuy
-- this needs DB support, but that'll be done as part of bug 10788
-- Would only need a link to set user=current user
* Ability to highlight unseen edits (not filtering but styling them differently)
-- Isn't this done already? Edits made since the last time you visited the page have a special class name and are highlighted (depending on the CSS) on action=history (See attached screenshot)
