== Searching diffs to spot a particular change ==
If you're trying to find the point in a page's history where a particular change was made, and searching the edit summaries does not help, try taking the diff between points roughly 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through the history. From this diff, you can work out in which of the three parts of the history the change occurred. Repeat this process, narrowing the "search space" by a factor of three each time, until the precise edit where the change was made is identified. You can also use the external [http://wikipedia.ramselehof.de/wikiblame.php?user_lang=en&lang=en&project=wikipedia WikiBlame] tool, which automates this searching process.
