Latest revision filter improvement idea

Jackattack1597 (talkcontribs)

I think that it would be useful if the latest revision filter also showed revisions that would be the latest if it didn't count edits from the same user as being the latest revision. The point would be so that vandals couldn't make a random useful edit to make it harder for people to find their vandalism.

Is there a way to block out user creation logs?

CupcakePerson13 (talkcontribs)

If there is, how do you use it, and if there is not one yet, I think it would be useful and should be around.

What's precisely the problem?

Live updates do not work (HTTP 204) on custom filters

Steps to reproduce:

  • Set up a custom filter with a few edits, say unpatrolled, newcomers, #mw-reverted.
  • Pause Live updates.
  • Make a change on one of the listed pages (say patrol an edit).
  • Resume Live updates.

The view will not change to reflect the change, and API responses to update requests will be empty (HTTP 204). Example request on hrwiki.

Hello, and thank you for reporting it.

How do you patrol the edit? You use a gadget to patrol it on RecentChanges, or do you open the link in a different tab, patrol the edit and close the tab?

Ivi104 (talkcontribs)

No gadgets, I open the diff in a new tab and patrol it normally.

I checked on this and I can't reproduce it. Which browser do you use?

Ivi104 (talkcontribs)

@Trizek (WMF) I use MS Edge 95.0 x64.

I'm still able to reproduce the bug. Here's a screenshot of browser network activity: The URL in question is this one. Active filters: Unregistered and unpatrolled. I patrolled a single edit, enabled live updates and nothing changes, all the requests still return 204 No Response.

The Filter "Logged Actions" needs better granularity

2003:EA:1F21:B021:9477:3F0A:49EE:AF92 (talkcontribs)

The Filter "Logged Actions" needs better granularity / subpoints: 1) user creation log 2) block log 3) all the rest. So that I can disable 1) and/or 2) with 3) still being displayed. ~~~~

Änderungen durch einen bestimmten Bot von der Beobachtungsliste nehmen

Andreas Schwarzkopf (talkcontribs)

Wie kann ich das machen?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

[übersetzt mit einer Übersetzungsmaschine]

Im Moment ist es nicht möglich, Bearbeitungen zu filtern, die von einem bestimmten Konto (Benutzer oder Bot) oder von einer bestimmten IP vorgenommen wurden.

At the moment, it is not possible to filter edits done by a specific account (user or bot), or by a given IP.

Painful to style via MediaWiki:Common/SkinName.css

3 (talkcontribs)

This widget, like others implemented with OOUI, is painful to style for wiki admins who maintain a custom theme but only have interface admin access. As far as I understand, the "correct" method for styling OOUI is described in OOUI/Themes and would require access to the server.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think you would have better chances to have a reply if posting on the OOUI talk page. (talkcontribs)

Thanks for pointing me to the right direction. I'll give it a go.

Would be great if we could have a filter to exclude redirects. It would be breat to see only new creations with meaningful content on them. ElectricRay (talk) 15:27, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Is there a way to see only pages that have been deleted?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs) (talkcontribs)

Unintuitive in the extreme

No idea how the filters are supposed to work

Changes page shows a mass of changes that are unlinked to -- no idea what they even refer to

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Being rude won't help there.
