Help:Logs

From Brickimedia Meta

Logs are special pages that will log special actions, such as protecting pages and deleting pages. You can select the log type, the user name (case-sensitive except for the first letter) of the acting user, and/or the affected page (full name required, case-sensitive except for the first letter). All logs can be seen at Special:Logs with some exceptions, or they can be categorised into certain log actions.

    • - A box that can be checked to show or hide selected log entries.
    • hh:mm - Shows the time of the log entry in 24 hour format (h represents hour while m represents minute)
    • Day Month Year Shows the date of the log entry by day, month, and then year.
    • User - Shows the specific user inputting the log entry
    • Talk - Links to the talk page of the user
    • contribs - Links to the contributions of the user
    • block - Links to the Special:Block page of the user for sysops to block the user if needed
    • action - Shows what type of activity is being done by the user (ex: A user might be commenting and thus the log entry is a comment log type)
