You should try ?safemode=1, some site/user scripts may affect the recentchanges page.

Aklapper renamed this task from recentchanges not showing correct results on metawiki to Recentchanges not always showing full results on metawiki.May 24 2023, 9:27 AM

This issue has been presenting intermittently, I didn't try safemode=, however there were no script changes between the result changes

I think this has something to do with the "Filter out translations" filter:

MariaDB [metawiki_p]> SELECT rc_id, rc_timestamp, actor_name, rc_source, rc_namespace, rc_title FROM recentchanges JOIN actor_recentchanges ON actor_id = rc_actor WHERE rc_timestamp < '20230521035627' AND rc_source NOT IN ('wb', 'mw.categorize') ORDER BY rc_timestamp DESC LIMIT 10;

Meno25's changes are not displayed in the screenshot, but they are present in the database.

You could use the "Show new changes starting from" link (or hand-format an URL identically) to provide examples, that's at least somewhat reproducible.

It was back to normal after I saw this problem for a few days last week, but still the list is empty. Even I cleared the filter settings and browser cache. Normally I use Chrome generally and use Firefox sometimes. When checked in Firefox, the same problem exists.

Hm, I think "Logged actions" is the filter that behaves weirdly. If I enable it I actually get less results. Its code is pretty straightforward though.

There hasn't been any recent changes to Translate's filters. Is there some indication that they are the cause?
