The current user is not listed first on Special:EventDetails
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points


When you're on the event page and open the "more details" dialog, your name is listed first in the (partial) list of participants, following r817313 and related discussions. However, the same is not true for Special:EventDetails, where the current user could be anywhere in the list.

Technically speaking, special-casing the current user would make it easier to implement support for private registration on EventDetails (T319453). It would also be more consistent with the event page. And finally, I think it could help when adding the possibility to change your visibility (as an example, see F35550274, which relies on your name being at the top).

If there are no objections product- and design-wise, I think we should implement this.

Event Timeline

Yes @Daimona, the current user's username should appear first in both More details modal and Event details page.

Yes, the username of the logged in user who is viewing either More Details or EventDetails should appear at the top of the participant list if they are registered for the event. Thanks for catching this discrepancy and writing the ticket!

Also privately registered participants are correctly displaying first on Special:EventDetails:

This is functioning correctly so I am moving it to Product sign-off

I am seeing the logged in user who is registered for the event at the top of the participant list for both the 'more details' modal and EventDetails now (see attached screenshots), so I'm marking this as Done.
