Description Guy Chapman 2007-05-14 21:46:18 UTC
When investigating problematic users, or users with OTRS complaints about
deleted articles with incorrectly remembered titles, it would be very useful to
be able to review (either separately or within the user's edit history) edits to
deleted articles.  Obviously this is only of any use to sysops, and should
probably not even appear as an option for others, but it would make a lot of
user issues much easier to investigate and control.

I've already written an extension for this, but there is one problem.

The archive table is not indexed by username, so any queries would just time out
and crash the site. Only small wikis, it would be OK, but not a large one like
en wikipedia.

*What* can be done is a hack, would be to borrow the checkuser RC table (which
keeps deleted entries) and join where cuc_namespace,cuc_title has no
corresponding page_namespace,page_title.
