The checkuser UI, with the new check option and reason box.

This is where I dabble with the CheckUser extension. I run it on my local test wiki. I have added several things thus far:

  • An option to have the server return only a unique list of names that used an IP, not every edit. bug 4627.
  • A reason box for logging bug 5044.
  • Support for /17-31 CIDR ranges bug 8205
  • A search box for the log (bug 6053 kind of).
  • ONE date format, like "07:29, 19 December 2006 (UTC)"
The checkuser UI, with a log search box. (beta form)
  • Adds user agent and XFF info to "get users" check bug 8290. This requires a good set of core changes.
  • Deleted edits are left in RC (but not shown on recentchanges/watchlist stuff) and listed in checkuser results. (bug 3281)
  • Data migrated to seperate CU table. The # of days this goes back is now independant of RC.
  • For IP edit checks, the IP and XFF (if any) shows under each edit
  • Support for IPv6


  • Make the log a db table (resolves bug 7879 and bug 6053)
    • OK, this will be damn hard. Instead, an auxiliary local results/log magijjy would be nice.Voice of All 05:01, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Hmmm, I don't want too many tables for this, bug 8290 patch lets the CU results go back farther, that might do. Voice of All 02:01, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
  • A good idea is to have add a button to allow a user to have the results of a CheckUser emailed to them so they can be saved for the future. This is also bugzilla:5575.
  • Results with many entries load them all on the same page. It would be better to make them viewable on different pages like with user contributions, with "(Newest | Oldest) View (Newer 50) (Older 50) (20 | 50 | 100 | 250 | 500)."
This requires tokens or implicit session timeouts based on the user/type of check. Otherwise people could either bypass longing or the log would fire for each "next" click. Voice of All 02:00, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
