Contributions page of new editors appearing on the User Creation Log are automatically blue-linked, even though they haven’t edited anything yet.
Closed, DuplicatePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

  • Log in to your profile on the English Wikipedia and go to the Special:Logs
  • Click on the drop down menu that says “All public logs” and scroll down and click on the option that says “User creation log.”
  • Click on the blue “show” button at the bottom of the table.

What happens?:

  • On the mobile browser, the contributions page of every single user on that log is blue-linked (rather than red-linked if they haven’t made any edits), even though they haven’t contributed anything yet.

What should have happened instead?:

  • As with anything else on Wikipedia, these should appear red-linked if the page hasn’t been created yet (or in this case, if they haven’t edited yet).

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):
