Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki
Recent changes is a special page showing the latest changes on the wiki. It is there for users to check the latest edits and make sure that they are fine and are not bad or do not need to be improved.
 Using recent changes
18 May 2013
The diff link takes you to the change that has been made. This will show you the page before the edit and after the edit and what has been changed.
The hist link will take you to that page's history showing you all the edits made to it.
 N, m, b
The letters you see before edits can mean different things:
 Page name
The next link in a change is the page name. Clicking this will take you to the most recent version of the page.
 Time stamp
The time stamp shows the time an edit was made. The time is set to your wiki default which you can change in your preferences.
 Positive/negative numbers
The positive and negative numbers you may see next to a change (i.e. (+15) or (-15)) show how many characters have been added or removed in an article. A (0) means that there have been no characters added or removed.
 Edit summary
The edit summary is the words that come after the change. They are used to explain the edit if it is not obvious why the edit was made. Not all edits require an edit summary. They are useful to explain an edit to stop an edit conflict.
If you are a rollback, you will see an extra option on the end of certain edits. These edits are the latest edits to that particular page so will only show up on those. Hitting the [Rollback] button will allow you to undo all changes to the page by that user. It is only to be used in the case of vandalism or a very unhelpful edit.
 Recent changes options
The recent changes options are near the top of the page. These give you extra options to change recent changes to your liking.
