Hallo,

Please see at
Bug 4171: implement consistent namespace filtering between Special:Recentchanges
and Special:Contributions
how "action=move" behaves.

In Special:Contributions it is possible to filter for namespaces and see
"events" related to "action=move".

However at this moment it is not possible to see *and* filter for namespace
regarding "events" as action=delete; action=protect; action=protect;
action=unprotect (maybe in the future other actions).

Suggestion: every action should be associated with an entry

  • which can be seen in the history of the affected page
  • which can be seen in the contributions of the user which initiated that action

Other actions are changes of user right, blocking / unblocking ...

regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. If you prefer to have individual bugs for each action / action pair please
do not close this bug as INVALID. The individual bugs can be opened separatly
and can be marked "block ..."


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Ups!

"upload" would be difficult to implement because there is no history for the
"Media / File" namespace.

Another handicap is that "Media / File" is neither supported in
Special:Recentchanges as a namespace filter nor in Special:Contributions.


This bug is a duplcate of
Bug 3716: Add logs entries to user contributions
which contains less details.
If you mark bug 4172 as a duplicate of bug 3716 please do not forget to change
the dependencies for bug 861.

A vicious lie. ;-) What about the whole, "revert to this version [of a file]"
and "delete this revision [of a file]" business?

What I was thinking about:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/95/Australian_aboriginal_flag.png
does not have tags at all, also no history tag.

However (new for me):
Please see the difference between "Image" and "Media" in the following links
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Image:Australian_aboriginal_flag.png&action=history
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Media:Australian_aboriginal_flag.png&action=history

The Media "action=history" should relate to the uploads / deletions of files
(namespace -2) and *not* to the changes of namespace 6.

[[Media:Australian_aboriginal_flag.png]] contains two entries in
[[Media:Australian_aboriginal_flag.png#filehistory] which is the history of
namespace -2.

This is quite new for me. I do not want to push any change.

Why not simply use logs?

All history pages have a "view logs for this page" option.

Is it just me going senile or do protection changes and moves actually create dummy revisions in page history? Deletions don't of course, but that'd be pointless unless the page were undeleted. WORKSFORME?

Agreed. Also, note that protections are included as of now.

So then, why are there dummy revisions for anything (e.g. imports, page moves, protection, etc.)?

There's some discussion at bug 70239.
