On Wikidata, it would be extremely helpful to be able to invert the filter for "Tag:Widar [1.4]", but I'm not able to find a way to do it. If you go to the normal Recent Changes there, you'll see looooaaads of edits with this tag, so being able remove only them would help significantly with making RC more useful.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you for your feedback. This request has already been made and we will consider to enable that option.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs) (talkcontribs)

The old french saying "Un chien vivant vaut mieux qu'un lion mort" is applicable here. The proposed solution is quite reasonable.

The "perfect" alternative doesn't seem like it would be used much and may also be quite confusing to explain and to show in the user interface.

"Not translations" filter shows translations on

Summary by Trizek (WMF)

and inversely, "Translations" filter doesn't return any results, making the filters effectively non-operational. This occurs regardless of whether I'm logged in. Screenshots. RC URL.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I have the same issue. I reported the bug.

About couple days ago, I have made a tag on Special:Tag page but it not appear on ERI tag list. How could it be?

Thanks for the answer.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)


Can you provide more context? Which wiki, which tag?


Iwan Novirion (talkcontribs)

Oh sorry, my mistake. On Minangkabau wiki at "Artikel Wikipedia Masuak Sakolah" tag's. It's not appear on ERI tag list at Recent change page.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The tag has been applied to 0 edits. It will not appear until an edit matching this tag happens.

Iwan Novirion (talkcontribs)

You mean it will appear on the drop down list when I click this button, right?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It will appear if:

  • you click on the button and
  • an edit is tagged with this tag

At the moment, zero edit is tagged with this tag. So you can't see it when you click on the button.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Oh, thank you! :D

Already seen changes are still appearing as unseen

Ita140188 (talkcontribs)

Even though I reported this problem repeatedly, and they always assured me they solved it, I still routinely find seen changes or even just edited pages highlighted as unseen in the watchlist. Please fix this as it is a huge waste of time.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It's a good start! Now I can just see my own recent edits.

Toggle for Group, MostRecent, ShowAll

NewsAndEventsGuy (talkcontribs)

At times I would like to see all changes in chronologic order; At other times I would like to see all changes in order but grouped according to venue, e.g., ''Article X'' (Change 1, Change 2, Change 3)....''Talk:X'' (Change 1, Change 2, Change 3). Finally, at other times I'd like to collapse the individual changes and just show the most recent one. I know I can do this, more or less, through preferences. It would be nice to have a toggle build right into the watchlist controls

Matěj Suchánek (talkcontribs)

It is there. For grouping, open "# changes, # days" and toggle "Group results by page". For the most recent change, use "Filter changes" and search "Latest revision".

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.

Filtering out specific tags?

Summary by Trizek (WMF)
S.A. Julio (talkcontribs)

Is there a way to be able to filter out specific tags? This would be very useful, occasionally in my watchlist there will be an influx of AWB edits (i.e. cleaning up typos in articles). I would like to be able to filter out edits with the AWB tag in order to see all other changes (as far as I'm aware this isn't currently possible).

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Location of the Tag menu

It is possible to filter tags, if those tags have been created on the wiki you're active on.

To filter AWB tags, go to the Tags menu (on the left), and type AWB in the search bar (or just type #AWB in the search bar).

However, it is not possible to exclude tagged edits from display for now.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)
MisterSanderson (talkcontribs)

It would be really nice to have the option of "filtering out".

User registration and experience section

Bikerbudmatt (talkcontribs)

I'd like to have some control of the range for the "experience" levels. I'm an experienced editor creating a standalone wiki. It's not helpful to have the "only" 160+ contributions I've made so far to be lumped in with my users who are working with a wiki for the first time. Even less helpful to think that the arbitrary number of 500 is what I need to attain to bump me into the "experienced" level.

Either allow these categories to exclude administrators by option, or allow administrators to adjust the scoring ranges in a way that gives them a useful filter.

Thanks! ~~~~

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

So the goal would be to have a way to :

  • define new experience thresholds (like user that have more than 50 edits but less than 200)
  • filter users by status

Am I right?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Defining thresholds is probably doable in your wiki's configuration file. @Roan Kattouw (WMF) will know more about it.

Filter users is not a feature we are considering for now. Developments are made in priority for Wikimedia wikis, and we are really concerned by filtering by users being used to stalk at people. The only way to filter users is by the number of edits, by thresholds.

Bikerbudmatt (talkcontribs)

Thank you. I will look there first, and check with @Roan Kattouw (WMF) if I get stuck. I presume you're using "stalk at" in a Wiki sense here.

I appreciate your responses!

Roan Kattouw (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Bikerbudmatt Apologies for the late response; you can configure the experience thresholds in LocalSettings.php. Copy the settings below to your LocalSettings.php and change the numbers:

$wgLearnerEdits = 10;
$wgLearnerMemberSince = 4;
$wgExperiencedUserEdits = 500;
$wgExperiencedUserMemberSince = 30;

A user is considered "experienced" if they have $wgExperiencedUserEdits edits and have had their account for at least $wgExperiencedUserMemberSince days (default: 500 edits and 30 days). A user is considered a "learner" if they haven't reached "experienced" yet, but they do have at least $wgLearnerEdits edits and have been around for at least $wgLearnerMemberSince days (default: 10 edits and 4 days). A user is considered a "newcomer" if they don't have enough edits/days to be a "learner".

Bikerbudmatt (talkcontribs)

@Roan Kattouw (WMF) and @Trizek (WMF)Thank you both for your kind assistance, and especially for the proper configuration strings. The only value that I changed is $wgExperiencedUserEdits, as the others all make sense to me.

Best in the new year, and cheers!
