who_generic?

Please explain me noob what's "who_generic" in Who.english.php for?  :-X

Just a generic string that is used when ElkArte doesn't know exactly the action the user is looking at.

For example a mod adds the action "someaction", but it doesn't add the string $txt['who_someaction'] to describe what that action is, in that case the who_generic will be used and the string will become: 'Viewing the someaction'.

It cannot make sense in all cases, that's granted. It's just a way to show something that is somehow related to what the user is doing, but is not possible to show exactly because something is missing.

Ah, okay. You visited the logs in my migration forum today and "Who's online" said you were "Betrachtet logs". That's not perfect when you use german language. So maybe I will change it to something fix like "Is doing something I can't explain".  ;)

Well, it may be worth taking a list of existing actions without a proper description and add them while we go.

In that case the action was:
Code: [Select]
?action=admin;area=logs;sa=errorlog;activity=file;
