Tool to find edit history intersection[edit]

Is there a history tool to use to remind yourself of what pages your edits and another Wikipedian have intersected on including conversations between the two of you on a talk page? Alatari (talk) 07:46, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

From Wikipedia:Tools:
  • Intersect Contribs – compares the edits of two editors in any Wikimedia Foundation wiki to see which articles overlap
  • Wikistalk – similar to Intersect Contribs, allows comparisons between more than two users and namespace selection, works only on the English Wikipedia
  • Editor Interaction Analyzer, shows the common pages that two editors have both edited, sorted by minimum time between edits by both users. Only works on the English Wikipedia.

Thankyou! Alatari (talk) 08:39, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

I have a follow up question. Is there a way to quickly pinpoint the exact edit you made over a several year time span in a heavily edited talk page or article especially one that has 30 or 50 archive pages built up? Alatari (talk) 09:26, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

One way is to search for your user name in the archives, either by using the archive search box if there is one, or Special:PrefixIndex if not. Alternatively, this tool could help. -- John of Reading (talk) 11:20, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
