Description Ward Stewart 2007-02-25 23:55:03 UTC
On two occasions I made changes of one to six words in an article, but then after checking 
Diff, it attributed HUGE changes to me, entire sections reworded or deleted. The changes 
actually occurred, but almost none them by me. This occurred at these URLs:
Comment 1 Ward Stewart 2007-02-25 23:57:42 UTC
Another occurrence:
title=Love_triangle&diff=105699209&oldid=104224833.  Thank you.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-03-06 05:52:44 UTC
Possibly the edit was accidentally made from an old revision view?
Comment 3 Ward Stewart 2007-03-10 20:42:11 UTC
Not likely from an old revision view; I'm careful about that. The problem also seems to 
be occurring more frequently in recent weeks.

*** Bug 10916 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 5 Low Sea 2008-04-21 09:25:02 UTC
I think Bug 9533 and 10511 may be related to this bug, and if so this bug may be the most serious since it is not just reporting errors but actual edit errors. 
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2008-04-26 23:30:31 UTC
No further information available, and the diff itself seems fine; assuming at this point that it was an accidental edit from an old revision.

If this recurs, please reopen with details if possible.
