Description Timwi 2004-09-03 03:20:58 UTC
Originally submitted by Nobody/Anonymous - nobody  2004-03-21 21:06

I realized that my "User Contribution" record includes 
that of mav's.

On the record, it is shown that I did the following edit 
(but I did not):

03:04, 16 Mar 2004 MediaWiki feature request and bug 
report discussion (moved 
to "MediaWiki_feature_request_and_bug_report_discussio


But then, when I go to page history, I see that edit is 
made by mav.

I have little idea how this happened, or how serious it is. 
But just in case it matters, I am reporting it here.

Probably a problem with page move moving over existing redirects.
There are *14* such broken entries in the history of that page,
where the
user ID doesn't match the listed user name. :P

On, my 'user contributions' include Ben 
Baker, but I do not turn up in the history of that article 
(currently just a redirect without any history)

Attributions on are bogus because of the way
the test
database was seeded (pulling cur records from enwiki but not
the related
user records, then creating new user records with potentially
user_id numbers). The symptom is the same, but the cause is 
unrelated to this bug.

I suppose this one should be closed?

Marking it as invalid.
Comment 2 Zigger 2005-04-12 14:40:07 UTC
Re-opening: the (database) still has the contribution list
Comment 3 Casey Brown 2007-09-18 01:35:40 UTC
Any problem that existed is seemingly fixed, or any raw data that would be uself in finding a fix is now experied.  (Avar originally marked invalid too...)
