Abuse filter table

I just noticed this today after getting my rights back. Some new Wikia gadget, I assume. Seems to be admins only, since I don't see it as Llwy-ar-nenfwd or logged out. It's kind of annoying because it's one of those JavaScript things that loads after the page and causes everything after it to jump down afterward. I couldn't find anything in my preferences to turn it on or off. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 21:42 8 August 2018

It's w:c:AbuseLogRC, which is imported to MediaWiki:ImportJS but wasn't showing up before for some reason. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 21:45 8 August 2018
I don't see it every time I sign in, and I don't get the jump effect myself. Certainly don't understand what it interprets as abuse as the list is always short despite some obvious vandalism that it doesn't see. I do get a jump nowadays involving pages that are linked from a blue link to a section (rather than a whole article). It hops up and down until it settles on the header which does not appear exactly at the top of the screen. Example is clicking the Year 0 in Uncyclopedia:Timeline in Timeline template at the top. I'll take that problem up with Wikia but wonder if it might be related to the jumping gerbil abuse log. Anyone seen anything else equally jumpy? --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 01:40, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
EDIT: I read what I could about this (links at right in the box) and it's still clear as mud. Dates back to 2016. I'd like to know why it flags what it does before I trust it fully. The box can be minimized to 3 entries but not to zero (shucks). --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 03:02, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
I see it as well in Pseudomonobook. I always collapse it and move on. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:33, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, w:c:dev:AbuseLogRC. It's just reporting actions that trip the abuse filters. I've noticed that kind of jumping when I save an edit to a section. I don't see why that would have anything to do with the abuse log table -- that jumps because it's created by JavaScript that loads after the page. I get that with other JS features too, here and elsewhere. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 18:03 11 August 2018
How do I find Recent Changes? (I didn't see it in any of the easy links, and am too lazy to look further). AdminBadge King of the Internet Alden Loveshade??? (royal court)  19:58, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
See my reply to you in your recent post at the Village Dump if you care to hear the underlying causes. You prolly don't have that control because it may be only easily available in the Fake Vector skin that restores the Wikipedia look (don't look at me like that!). Otherwise, search for that page called Special:Recentchanges and bookmark it if useful to you. But that is not the exact page we're talking about which may be admin-only, which is Special:RecentChanges. --Nigel Scribbler sig2 (talk) 22:00, August 11, 2018 (UTC)
If you don't have Fake Vector, there's a row of buttons on the top right of the page. The rightmost one has three dots. If you mouse over that there's a menu with recent changes on it. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 20:13 12 August 2018
