AbuseLog to link to CentralAuth, is that possible?

tracked in T95275

Hi. I think that AbuseLog patrolers and specially stewards would find useful to have a link to Special:CentralAuth in log entries on Special:AbuseLog. I tried to modify the message MediaWiki:Abusefilter-log-entry and MediaWiki:Abusefilter-log-entry-withdiff without success. Any ideas? Perhaps a script can be made, like the one we use at the Special:Log/globalauth (question to self: not sure why that log does not link to Special:CentralAuth by default...). -- M\A 11:58, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

The second parameter ($userLink) is hardcoded into the message with links (not only username) so we can't make the message link to CA without a script. I think it might be worthwhile to add another parameter (just for username) to it though. For your question to self, see phab:T91868. --Glaisher (talk) 12:13, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm filling a ticket on Phabricator for this then. -- M\A 10:09, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi. Please see Meta:Requests for bot status/Filedelinkerbot. Krd and me are wondering if the category linked above should be cleaned and how. While I'd support and entire cleanup, Krd raises some interesting concerns and I think it'd be better if the community could have it's say on this. I'd appreciate input in this thread and not let stagnate another proposal to enhace the maintenance of this project. Best regards. -- M\A 18:02, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

Qui tacet placet. As there has been no opposition and I won't be waiting forever, the cleanup will start in the following days... last chance to comment. Don't say later you weren't warned. -- M\A 10:20, 7 April 2015 (UTC)


如果我在meta的用户页上放个链接,那么除非有前缀,否则我的本意一般来说是链接到meta上的某个页面。但现在必须要在前面加上m:前缀,否则在其他项目上打开的时候会链接到本地页面。建议修改这个不合理之处。--SFSQ2012 (talk) 09:55, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
