MediaWiki talk:Recentchangestext/Archive 1
This page is for suggestions on what to include at the top of the Recent changes page.
- Looks a good idea. How about including it under "useful"? --Aphaia 21:09, 18 August 2005 (UTC)
- I'm talking about the purpose of MW:RC, which looks to me like it should say what the page is supposed to display, and possibly include some links one might need for activity directly related to recent change patrolling. It seems unreasonably personal to turn a standard wiki header into a website portal just because it's a favorite sysop page. (Why not do this to VfD, since we spend so much time there, too?) If we want a sysop portal, I'd suggest something like my User:Jeffq/Admin shortcuts. On the other hand, if this is common practice across projects, I'm not going to press the issue. It just seems weird to me. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 04:13, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
- Sorry; I realized what you were doing there, but I didn't quite get the project links for RC stuff. But I have to point out that I don't do RC patrols nearly as often as you and Aphaia do, so the best I can do is bring up the point (in my trademark annoying fashion ☺). I concede that you all know better what frequent patrollers need to link to. I'll shut up now. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 06:12, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
- Did you hover over the links? They point to other projects' RC pages, not main pages. I've never used them, myself, but I assume that other RC patrollers check for equivalent vandalism or spamming in other projects (for example, to determine length of bans or to report on cross-project vandalism). ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 12:09, 19 August 2005 (UTC)
