Newcomers and Registered RC filters fetch temp users
Closed, DuplicatePublic



  1. On a wiki where temp users made some edits go to Special:RecentChanges page
  2. Apply Registered and Newcomer filters (e.g. cswiki betalabs RC Registered users). Edits made by temp users will be returned.

Both filters descriptions refer to logged-in users: Registered - Logged-in editors, and Newcomer - Registered editors who have fewer than 10 edits....

Should the filters descriptions be changed to reflect that temp users are not exactly registered?
Or such filters should not fetch edits done by temp users?
Or temp users should be treated by RC filters as Unregistered?
