eg. https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Flow&action=history has ~300 entries.
It should be paginated like other history pages, and should follow the user-preference set by "rclimit" (default 50, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgDefaultUserOptions )
I wonder how topic history, e.g. <https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Flow&workflow=rquasteiavkguarf&action=history> handles hundreds of changes. Have we had any topics with a ton of activity?

I believe Topic histories are meant to be getting the same makeover that Board histories got (ie. to look like a standard history page.). That's tracked at https://trello.com/c/v9Xad55m/104-topic-history-changes

I'm merging bug 65090 to here, with two comments copied across:
> This page's History goes back to "05:32, 25 February 2014"
> but the page itself dates back to "23:24, 11 December 2013"
> There are similar problems at other pages, eg.
> (7 February 2014 vs 3 February 2014)
> This is "expected". We only populate the most recent 500 entries and
> display the most recent 300 entries of a board history. Fetching and
> displaying all at once is obviously not a good idea. Maybe we could add
> pagination to the history, for example, 200 entries per load. This would

I'm wondering whether this is an issue from a legal point of view? If I go to see http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Talk:Flow%20QA?action=history I cannot see any history pre-September 3rd (yesterday).
