Flow: moderated content inconsistencies
Open, HighPublic

Description

If I go to a history view, recent changes view, watchlist view, or contributions view on mw.org and see a revision that was reverted or deleted, I can see the name of the user who authored the reverted/deleted revision. If the revision was deleted, I see a strikethrough on the timestamp, indicating that the revision was deleted.

If I go to the RC, watchlist, or contribs view and look at moderated Flow content, I see:

  • the username of the person whose post was hidden, and a misleading strikethrough on the timestamp
  • "Username suppressed" instead of the username of a person whose post was deleted or suppressed, and a strikethrough on the timestamp

I should be able to see the username of the person whose content was hidden or deleted (and suppressed? need to ping an oversighter to verify this), regardless of whether I have permission to view the actual change. I shouldn't see a strikethrough on the timestamp of content that's been hidden, since this is equivalent to reverting.

James F confirms that everyone should be able to see the existence of suppressed revisions (with the strikethrough) in RC/watchlist/contribs view, though of course you need the appropriate permissions to view the content of that revision.

This bug is still current. Deleted pages must not be shown in watchlist, yet they are.

@Nemo_bis, this is when the whole topic was deleted using Flow's delete topic UI?

No idea. As a user I don't care what buttons were used, I only care about the result i.e. my watchlist being helplessly cluttered.
