MER-C added a comment to T189929: Add "previously deleted" as a possible issue (flagged in red) in the New Pages Feed/Page Curation Tool.

Pages are often recreated under different but similar titles -- for example Acme Corporation, Acme (company), Acme (widgets company), etc -- to evade scrutiny. Therefore, this should be implemented by searching the archive table using both the prefix ([[Special:Undelete]] fuzzy=0) and normal search ([[Special:Undelete]] fuzzy=1) instead of just determining whether the title has deleted revisions or deletion log entries if the user is an admin. Looking for deletion log entries is fine for non-admins.

MER-C added a comment to T186637: Interaction Timeline should continue initial pagination until at least one revision is retrieved for each user.

This isn't necessary. Instead of fetching list=contribs&ucuser=User1|User2, make your first request list=contribs&ucuser=User1 and your second request list=contribs&ucuser=User2. Take note of the earliest timestamp of the 500th most recent edit for both queries, compare them, then continue the query of the user with the latest timestamp and update the timestamp to the 1000th edit. Compare timestamps again and repeat. This easily generates sensible partial results.

MER-C added a comment to T182548: Interaction Timeline returns only partial results on complex queries.

It's only a partial solution -- if you've got two users that have been around since (say) 2006 with lots of edits it won't help much. But this improvement costs you just one API request. (You also get other metadata, such as whether the user is currently blocked, for free.)

MER-C added a comment to T182548: Interaction Timeline returns only partial results on complex queries.

A quick suggestion: fetch the registration time of the two users. No interaction can occur before the latest of these two dates, so you can strictly limit fetching contribs of both users to after this time without affecting the results.

It violates the principle of least astonishment that when one copies the link into Special:Linksearch -- the usual workflow -- no results are returned. Those not technically inclined wouldn't know what to search for, and those who are have to go through the step of encoding the domain name using some external tool.

What I want to do is C, so I've created a temporary copy of the Commons image and pointed the template to that. The deletion itself is not particularly urgent.

  1. This describes the MariaDB table you'll be working with -- https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Archive_table
  2. This is the code for Special:Undelete, which is the GUI admins use to look at or undelete pages -- https://git.wikimedia.org/blob/mediawiki%2Fcore.git/master/includes%2Fspecials%2FSpecialUndelete.php
  3. I would implement the fallback case (T109561#1940512) first.

Yes.

MER-C added a comment to T109561: Add non-exact title search to Special:Undelete and corresponding API.

I had a PM requesting more details about this for the 2016 Hackathon. By and large, what we want is a new special page that is part of core software and gives the ability to perform the search, display some basic metadata with the results (starting with the number of deleted revisions and when the page was last deleted, depending on how much you can get away with performance wise) restrict/filter the results per namespace and a corresponding API for this. The default search functionality in MediaWiki should be sufficient for this. Text search in deleted pages is not necessary at this stage.

MER-C added a comment to T110792: No replacement for drunique in deprecated module deletedrevs.

To search the archive table for titles with a given prefix without having to iterate through the entire list of deleted revisions -- essentially like https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&prefix=John . The current situation is not desirable if you hit a page with 5000 deleted revisions.
