Description Isarra 2013-02-11 02:11:46 UTC
Technically 'my' probably does work here, but it may still make more sense to change it to something such as 'own edits' or the like just so it seems less awkward. 

'My' just seems awkward.
Comment 1 MZMcBride 2013-02-11 02:14:37 UTC
The current default is "$1 my edits" where $1 becomes "Show" or "Hide" depending on user preference and/or a URL parameter override.

You're proposing "$1 own edits"?
Comment 2 Isarra 2013-02-11 02:18:25 UTC
Basically.
Comment 3 Siebrand Mazeland 2013-02-11 10:08:18 UTC
I don't think this clarifies anything. We could change it to "Show/Hide my own edits", which can/should in turn be abbreviated to "Show/Hide my edits", which is exactly equal to the current string.

Proposing to close as WONTFIX or WORKSFORME.

Plus, I've no idea how adding the word "own" could reduce the sense of WP:OWNership, and any such consideration is probably not relevant outside English.
