Add Thank link on Recent Changes pages
Open, LowPublic

Description

This is a feature request. See this discussion which explains the request: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)/Archive_134#Thank_link_on_Recent_Changes_pages

Here's a condensed version of this suggestion from the discussion:

It would be convenient if there was a Thank link on Recent Changes pages, on each line like how they work in page histories. I use RC pages a lot for patrolling changes, and having a Thank link there would reduce steps I take to thank other users.

It has been suggested that a user should actually view a diff before thanking someone for it, but indeed, I can do that from the Recent Changes page. I can hover over the diff to see it. So, it would be nice if I can "thank" from there without additional navigation.

I should clarify that I'm not asking for the 'Thank' link to be in the diff popup, just on each Recent Changes entry like they appear in each History entry.

This may also be useful for watchlists, although there it is more difficult to see a cluster of work by an editor one may wish to thank.

As of April 2016, the diff popup features "send thanks" as an action. I'd prefer to have this on each line of RC per my request, but at least this gadget update is useful.

By "I can hover over the diff to see it." you mean using the Popups gadget ? If yes, as this gadget already allow to thanks for an edit as you said, this argument is not validate.
