bug 2447: allow inclusion of pages with parameters

removing depends on
bug 813: make Special: pages embeddable as templates

because bug 2447 depends already on bug 813

It is not really a duplicate of bug 2447, because it can be made individually,
just like the special pages mentioned in the initial comment.

Hao Leon!

What exactly / What parameter do you mean with "''Newbies''"?
Is this a "''newbies group''" or a particular user?
[[Special:Contributions/Newbies]] would be the contributions of [[user:Newbies]].
Do you request simple inclusion of for individual users as
{{special:Contributions/Oliphaunt}} at [[:nl:]]?

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

I can't seem to find it now, but there used to be a page showing the recent
contributions of users who are deemed 'newbies' by MediaWiki. It would be very
useful if this page were includable, if it indeed still exists.

Question. How is the software going to determine between User:Newbies and
so-called new users?

Reinhardt (gangleri) and Leon Planken (Oliphaunt) please take a look at this
page: this is the
page we are talking about, which should be includable.

Should this really be restricted to just the page listed above? Shouldn't /newbies be just a param? ~~~~

I'm not very active on wikipedia any more, so I don't have a lot of interest in this myself anymore.

It's good to know that lowercase "newbies" should be used.

However, inclusion doesn't work, neither on nl.wikipedia nor en.wikipedia:
