Tech:Include last edit on spam filter failure page

Moved from en:Wikitravel:Feature requests/Implemented by Evan

Currently when the "Save page" button is clicked, if something in the edit triggers the spam filter then the next page presents a message saying that the edit was blocked, but clicking "Back" usually loses all edit information. Would it be possible to have the spam filter message page also include a textarea box with the current edit so that a user who has edited the page won't lose their changes?

Additionally, is there any way to create a "special" page that would show what articles currently would trigger the spam filter? I've had problems editing en:Las Vegas because the spam filter triggers while I'm editing based on information that was previously in the page. If this second feature is a lot of work then it's not important, but the first would be hugely valuable. -- Ryan 16:22, 8 March 2006 (EST)

I just did the first part, and I've broken off the idea of a special page to a new FR. --Evan 16:19, 2 May 2006 (EDT)
