Description:
On Wikisource, a lot of data have disappeared :

http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Sp%C3%A9cial:Contributions/Caton

5 contributions... but in fact :

2252 :

http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikisource/EN/TablesWikipediaFR.htm

So, almost all my contributions has been remove from my list.

Shaihulud has edited the main page in 2003 :

http://fr.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Wikisource:Accueil&diff=1466&oldid=1465

But his contributions before 2009 have disappeared too :

http://fr.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Sp%C3%A9cial:Contributions/Shaihulud&dir=prev&target=Shaihulud

I think some other accounts have this problem.

Thank for your help.

You're only showing 4 now. Which is the same as the database thinks you have.

mysql> SELECT count(*) FROM revision WHERE rev_user = 44;
+----------+

count(*)

+----------+

4

You can see "Caton" in it. And I have consulted my contributions before, so I know that almost all my contributions are missing.

This is a bug. See history like :

I don't think anyone disagreed with you.

When did you last see your contributions attributed to your account?

Have you had your account renamed?

marc.galli35 wrote:

It's difficult to remember, because it is a former account. Sometimes for some
reason, I look what I have done with this account. The last time was perhaps
last year.

My account was not renamed. It is an former account from old wikisource. But
all was fine on fr: until now.

I think some old contributions are not attributed to several accounts. For exemple :

http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Sp%C3%A9cial:Contributions/Shizhao

there is no contribution ; but in main page history you can see the account :

http://fr.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Wikisource:Accueil&dir=prev&action=history

But in the same time, Samuel has made 5 contribution the 23 november 2003, and you can see them in his list :

http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Sp%C3%A9cial:Contributions/Samuel

I don't understand this difference.

Same problem for Traroth :

http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Sp%C3%A9cial:Contributions/Traroth

no contribution in the main page in this list. But the account is in the
history of the main page.

Is there a solution ? it is quite disturbing that contributions can vanish like that.

marc.galli35 wrote:

Any idea ?

Contributions imported from a foreign wiki aren't stored with the rev_user of the account, but with rev_user = 0 and only linked through rev_user_text.

In this case I think that all those missing are revisions coming from old wikisource.

SELECT count(*) FROM revision WHERE rev_user_text = 'Caton';
+----------+

count(*)

+----------+

3220

+----------+

But most of them are imported:
SELECT rev_user, count(*) FROM revision WHERE rev_user_text = 'Caton' GROUP BY rev_user;
+----------+----------+

rev_usercount(*)

+----------+----------+

03216
444

+----------+----------+

Special:Contributions used to filter by rev_user_text, so all of them were listed. That seems to have been changed in 1.19 and should be reverted.

Thank for these explanations. I hope this will be reverted soon.

marc.galli35 wrote:

So, how a contributor can watch his list of contributions if this list doesn't exist anymore ?

Sorry for the long wait... yes, this is a known bug in Special:Contributions: T36873, caused by 99984c809 and related to T9240.
