Parameter $2 of [[MediaWiki:Signature-anon]] is filled incorrectly
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description:
Per the discussion at [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)&oldid=296723291#Autosig_not_working_.7E.7E.7E.7E]:
The parameter $2 of [[MediaWiki:Signature-anon]] is filled incorrectly as e.g. "Contributions/199.125.109.102"
With the default value of the message, this will display as e.g. [[Special:Contributions/199.125.109.102|Contributions/199.125.109.102]] which is most probably not the intended behavior.

It can of course be workarounded in the message

getUserSig.

After updating to that revision I can no longer reproduce the bug on my test wiki, and I assumed Nikerabbit knew what he was talking about in his commit message. If you want to reopen the bug, please find evidence that the bug is still occuring for versions > 51910 first.
