Allow rev parent id to be fixed


  • In particular, revisions whose parent IDs were messed up in pre-2018 undeletions should be able to have their parent IDs changed back to what they used to be. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 23:16, 14 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • This is not on the list of things I think anyone using Wiki* cares about today. --Izno (talk) 00:19, 17 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I care about it. This is something I've occassionally come up against. As an admin, I sometimes want to know who created an article, or what state it was in as created as compared to now. Messed up histories get in the way of that and other investigative tasks. SpinningSpark 09:27, 5 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    This is a wishlist, not new features request. It is perfectly in order to wish for the tech team to devote more effort to certain bugs. SpinningSpark 09:27, 5 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
