Special:Log should have permanent link to current log entry list, specific log entries
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

I would like to propose two additions to the Special:Log interface:

  • A permanent link to the current settings and time.
  • For each log entry, a permanent link (use log_id as URL parameter?)

I'm killing the design keyword for now as I'm not convinced this will need design help.

Use-cases?

For linking to a specific log entry. If a user has performed many actions on a page, it may be difficult to find a link to give for a specific entry (and to not display any others).

For the other proposed feature, I think it would be much easier to just have a "frozen" link for the current list of log entries than to have to find the timestamp and manually add it to the query string.
Specific example: Maybe you want to show when a steward has locked or done other actions in a specific time frame. You could look for the timestamp of the latest action and use offset param (e.g., https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/globalauth/Vituzzu&dir=prev&offset=20140117123451), or there could just be a link that does this for you.
