Often user scripts/gadgets want to modify the list of contributions on Special:Contribution (hide entries, add special links to each entry, etc.). But it is surprisingly difficult to identify this list, as neither the list nor any parent has a specific ID/class. On most pages this doesn't really matter as there is only one list in #mw-content-text. But there are at least 2 cases, where it isn't as easy as that:
- For a blocked user there is an excerpt of the block log, which is a list, too.
- Many wikis add some useful links at the bottom of the page, these may be a list, too (e.g. on Commons).
These special cases make it unnecessarily difficult to find the correct list, so please add an ID or class to identify it.
