Some context: This link is from a change notification email I received. The oldid revision number is wrong. This worked previously (not sure when I got the last email that worked but can't be more than 2 or 3 days).

Hmmm or maybe I am reading the id wrong. Anyway the change this should have informed about is http://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q7259&oldid=50195403

The revision before oldid=50195403 is oldid=49556407

http://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q7259&diff=next&oldid=49556407

Looks fine to me, as it's comparing and showing you 50195403 (diff=next) against 49556407.

the issue I see is that the other link does *not* work.

Setting to high as this is getting quite annoying and makes these emails useless.

I'm sorry if I'm missing something, but does "diff=0" always show you "all changes since your last visit"? Where is this documented?

I think it actually means from an old revision ("oldid") to the latest revision ("diff=0"). I'm not 100% certain, though.

Are there any news about this?

Unfortunately not :( I'll poke about it.

This bug still remained...

Half useless: the individual diff still works.
