Add filters to history page

(copied straight from village pump idea)
On some of the high traffic pages, one of the most annoying things about the revision history page is that well over half the revisions are vandalism related. Vandalism, revert, vandalism, revert. It is difficult to see what are legitimate changes. I also understand the argument that some reverts are presumptuous, and not all with is reverted is vandalism. While there is no perfect system, and i don't have much coding experience, the wiki software itself could have filters for the revision history page. Little check marks so that people can customize what they see. here are some of the filters i suggest.

  • Show member edits only
  • Show established member edits only
  • Hide revert related edits
  • Hide banned member edits
  • Hide banned IP address edits
  • Hide bot edits
  • Hide minor edits
  • Show all edits

:That'd be kind of interesting and would be a nice addition to the history page. This as well as [[meta:FlaggedRevs|Flagged Revisions]] would also help in this kind of thing because you would be able to hide all edits that did not have sighted or above. —[[User:Nn123645|Nn123645]] ([[User talk:Nn123645|talk]]) 05:58, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
*That makes perfect sense. Try suggesting it at the Wikipedia Bugzilla page, so we can see if the developers think it can be done. - [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm]]|[[User talk:MacGyverMagic|<sup>(talk)</sup>]] 12:31, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

  • These would be good features to add. Another possibility would be grouping revert/reverted edits together into one entry by default and then have an arrow to expand the edits. Some of the Wikia wikis are set up like that. -- [[User:Imperator3733|Imperator3733]] ([[User talk:Imperator3733|talk]]) 15:39, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
