I want to know who added "Chichi" at

I haven't found any better way than diffing by dichotomy, which is very laborious.

There should be a better way to find who wrote what, a tool a bit like git blame or wikiblame.

Thanks Bugreporter, nice to see that there is some source code available already!

Hopefully the feature can be included natively into the Wikidata web UI soon :-)

It is still a duplicate of the other one. Please leave this one closed.

Me: It would be very convenient if we had a tool to cut paper.
A: We could use a thermonuclear quantum laser for that. Closing as duplicate.
B: Sorry guys, we cannot have a thermonuclear quantum laser.
Me: Wait, closing as duplicate was a mistake in the first place, I don't need a thermonuclear quantum laser... How about plain old scissors?

We don't need "statement edit metadata" to implement this basic feature that any wiki has.

It could even be implemented 100% client-side, in JavaScript. Such an implementation would require zero server-side code change, and its usage would generate no more load than a few pageviews. It would use the existing "action=history" and "type=revision" API calls, which are very light.

Please reopen, thanks :-)
