as in update the Last Here time on their homenode
Doesn't that fall into the "edit your home node" category?

No, it doesn't. The "Last Here" time is automatically updated whenever you load any page, and it's what makes you show up in the Other Users list. You don't edit it directly.

View the contents of an older revision of a sitefaqlet or sitedoclet (though he still can list the dates of older revisions with ;displaytype=edithistory).
I'm not sure what that means. I looks like it's related to settings, which AM can not change. If not, please show me how to navigate to it.

Let me explain.

We have nodes documenting the Perlmonks site, most of which are linked from the PerlMonks FAQ (which is where the "Need Help??" link goes), but they're often linked from other places too. These nodes are of type sitedoclet (most of them at least), are searchable by Super Search under the codename "Monk Help", and maintained by the SiteDocClan.

When such a node is edited, the date and full content of older revision is saved. It is these older revisions I'm talking about.

Let's see an example. Take a sitedoclet, such as What shortcuts can I use for linking to other information?. If you view this node with the "edithistory" displaytype, such as ?node=43037;displaytype=edithistory, you'll see a table, in which each row represents an older state of this documentation. In each row there is listed a unique identifier for this edit (which is not a node id btw), the editor, and the time of that edit. For example, one row says

40329 jdporter doctext 2009-05-19 18:22

If you follow the link on the number 40329 there, you get to see the HTML source (with some perlmonks specific markup like brackets and code tags) of sitedoclet just after that edit, which is an older state of this document. This view also shows the differences between this edit and the previous one shown in colors.

Now Anonymous Monk can load the page that lists the id numbers and authors and dates of the edits, but he can't view the contents of the individual edits.
