Ever since the release of the feature that allowed users with the dupe/gold hammer privilege to edit a question's duplicate list, there hasn't been any improvement to how it is displayed in the post revisions page.

I'm referring to this (example screenshot):

This makes it difficult to see at a glance,

  • which links were removed
  • which links were added
  • and if the list was re-ordered

  • Funny how this is in the SO Hot meta Posts, and then links you here...

  • @Luuklag it was migrated from MSO.

  • @Braiam I saw that, but funny that it was still a HMP on SO. I know we should blame caching for that, but perhaps this should be a special case.

  • @SebastianSimon: BTW, that question has now been closed (by its author) as a duplicate of this one (since it's basically the exact same issue and suggested solution).

I propose that the list be modified to something similar to what my ReduceClutter userscript already implements, and it is clearer which link was removed/added, and the new sort order (if it was re-ordered):

    Excellent request and idea; I might even suggest to go further and highlight the whole line in light red or light green, like GitHub diffs.

    And while they're implementing this, they can make the "dialog box" where you do this editing responsive. I hate how it runs off my small screen, I can't pan left to see the buttons. Sep 1, 2020 at 18:53
