Edit summary[edit]

I would appreciate if the closing bureaucrat could either link the subpage (example) or state the result (e.g. rm Xyz, RfA successful) in the edit summary when removing a closed RfA. Otherwise the 130 − 1 watchers have to look at an old version in order to get to know the result of the RfA. Thank you. --Leyo 16:10, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Dunno why we're voting on this... seems like a straightforward enough request. –Juliancolton | Talk 14:10, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
Heh, you're right. Perhaps mentioning this on some guideline/policy/etc (or some "closing instructions" on the RFA page) page would do. ;) Rehman 14:15, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
I removed the (x%). It wasnt suggested above. I was surprised by the % number on my watchlist following Saibos edit, surprises is nothing people want to have on their watchlist - especially if they can not unwatch the page. The calculation can be wrong by 1 or 2% (happened in the past) and corrected short after the closure, no need to announce an harmless calculation mistake to >100 watchers. The percent number is for the record and for the policy, if the vote was sucessfull it will be meaningless if it was 75% or 100% of support, the user will be an admin and will have our support. --Martin H.

Sure - fine. I just thought it might be useful to directly see them, too. However, your concerns seem valid. Except the thing that I do not really understand what is "surprising" on seeing percentage numbers. ;-) Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 19:43, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately, people seem to have forgotten about it. --Leyo 15:22, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry of that, but this is proof that I'm mere mortal :-) --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:04, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
You are not the only one. --Leyo 13:32, 1 April 2013 (UTC)


Does anyone know a workaround for the (now) missing MediaWiki:Ratinghistory-table-votes. It's still at but vanished from Commons. -- Rillke(q?) 12:26, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
