IP addresses should link to Special:Contributions instead of userpage, e.g. on revert notification
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

EDIT: There is no longer a link to the user in the flyout, but it still applies on Special:Notifications.


In Notifications, can we link IPs to their special:contributions page, instead of their userpage?

eg. We currently have:
Your edit on [[Mike Patton]] has been reverted by [[User:124.181.111.127|124.181.111.127]]. (Show changes)

we want:
Your edit on [[Mike Patton]] has been reverted by [[Special:Contributions/124.181.111.127|124.181.111.127]]. (Show changes)

This would be consistent with the way IPs are linked in all History pages, eg https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Mike_Patton&action=history

Prioritization and scheduling of this bug is tracked on Mingle card https://mingle.corp.wikimedia.org/projects/flow/cards/239

'notification-reverted2' => 'Your {{PLURAL:$4|edit on [[:$2]] has|edits on [[:$2]] have}} been {{GENDER:$1|reverted}} by [[User:$1|$1]]. $3',

The solution here would probably to just use $1, and have echo figure out whether to make a link to the user page or contributions page, and send that as a parameter.

Checked in betalabs - reverts made by IP users have a link to Special:Contributions:

<div class="mw-echo-title">Your edit on <a href="/wiki/User_talk:Etonkovidova"
title="User talk:Etonkovidova">User talk:Etonkovidova</a> has been reverted by
