Why are rollbacks not included in a user's recent activity history?

When you go to a user's profile and click on recent, why can you not see where they have rolled back posts? Isn't this just as relevant as the edits it shows?



  • You should make it a feature request perhaps...

  • This was noticed when we were looking over the recent activity on my Wedding Cake Code answer. It appears that GateKiller's rollback was not recorded in his recent activity, nor was it included in Rich B's activity. Yet when I revised (not a rollback) I did get an inclusion in my activity list.

  • @jjnguy: I doubt this was overlooked, there must be some reason behind it.

  • @**He Who Must Not Be Named**(ha, I want a nickname too...) I see. Yeah, if you assume they already though about it then asking why it wasn't implemented makes more sense.

Maybe the rationale has to do with the fact that rollbacks don't really create anything new. That's just a guess, though.

The other alternative is that they wanted people to be able to see the other things you've done on this site, other than your constant rollback wars.
