Bug in Activities Filter

Answers

  • Yes. That user created 2 articles recently (one duplicate of another - WiKi glitch) and I reported both as pirated content (or Carsten did). But when I wanted to check these articles, I had no way.

    Also, I don't think the Filter should be dynamic depending on actual content. We should be able to filter by the common categories and if the user doesn't have them, well, the result will be empty. I don't see a reason why the filter itself should disappear.

    Looks like Peter deleted the articles... thus no more activity on them. Or it got cycled off the last 100 activities.

    It would be a frustrating experience to select "TechNet Wiki" and get zero results. At least this way, you know there are no Wiki activities without the extra click and disappointment. So it's "By Design".

  • The category TechNet Wiki only appears if there is at least one TechNet Wiki activity in the list of recent activities. This is true of all categories in the listbox. This user must have had no recent Wiki activity. Also, the list of recent activities is limited to the last 100. Have you seen Wiki activity for this user?

  • Last 100 activities should respect the filter. E.g. if I apply filter, I need to see 100 last activities by that filter. Is it the current behavior?

  • No, the list only has the last 100 activities of any category. When you filter you see a subset of the 100. As I recall, the categories are: Blogs, Forums, TechNet Wiki, Achievement!, Gallery, Profile, and probably Translation Wiki.
