Special:Contributions should have customized display for LQT edits
Open, LowestPublicFeature

Per discussion on IRC:

Showing edits to [[Thread:Feedback/Stopping bad signatures?/Mike.lifeguard (4)]] when the user "really" (from their point of view) edited [[Talk:Feedback]] is quite confusing. Lines in contribution lists and the like should be forged to look like section edits on the page where discussion was taking place:

(show/hide) 03:27, 5 November 2009 (hist | diff) N Thread:Feedback/Stopping bad signatures?/Mike.lifeguard (4) ‎ (Reply to Stopping bad signatures and other untraceable vandalism) (top) [rollback]

becomes something like

(show/hide) 20:53, 2 March 2010 (hist | diff) m Talk:Feedback (→Stopping bad signatures? Reply to Stopping bad signatures and other untraceable vandalism) (top) [rollback]

This is possibly a better approach than what's been done for RecentChanges, but is essentially the same idea. All forged lines should look the same though - one format for RC and another for contribution lists wouldn't be good. In an ideal world, even LQT history pages would use the same format as well, rather than the (eww!) table. This would provide a continuity of experience that's currently lacking, in addition to hiding ugly implementation details which are currently confusing.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
