Recent changes page displays filtering options not useful on private wikis
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

On the "Recent changes" page. Mediawiki displays "Hide anonymous users" and "Hide registered users" options. It's all good for public wikis, but for private wikis or wikis requiring users to be registered to make modifications, theses options are not useful and not pertinent.

Though MediaWiki now uses active filters on the Recent Changes pages, users can still disable the improved version of this page and be presented with this little UI bug. It is also possible that MediaWiki offers the Unregistered or Registered filters on private/non-public wiki, but I have not been able to check since the MediaWiki version I use is too old.

Maybe I got the tag wrong?

As the first two words of this task are "Recent changes", why should MediaWiki-Recent-changes be wrong?

Sorry about that, I though that tag pertained to the new RecentChanges interface. My bad.
The issue is still there on REL1_31.

We are currently only maintaining this feature, but we will happily accept volunteer contributions.
