Show temporary account deleted contributions from a given IP address on Special:IPContributions
Open, Needs TriagePublic2 Estimated Story Points


Similarly to T363357, show deleted contributions on Special:IPContributions. This might involve making a separate pager and having a "deleted" mode for the special page, rather than combining the two lists into one.

It would be nice to use a UNION query to combine the results like in Special:Investigate queries. However, this didn't seem to be an easy implementation when I tried it just now.

Change #1038403 had a related patch set uploaded (by Tchanders; author: Tchanders):

Testing/review notes


  • CheckUser loaded
  • Temp accounts enabled
  • A user with the right to reveal IP and the right to see deleted pages (deletedhistory)


  • Make some contributions to an article from multiple temporary users using the same IP address
  • Delete the article
  • Visit Special:IPContributions/<theipaddress> and click on the "Deleted contributions" tab

What should be seen:

  • The contributions to the deleted article from all the temp accounts using that IP address
  • The rows should contain equivalent information and links to the Special:DeletedContributions pages for each of the temp accounts
  • The rows may contain additional information (e.g. diff size)
  • Special:IPContributions/<rangewiththeipaddress> should show the same rows (or more if there are contribitions from other IPs in the range)
