Before the switch to tool labs (am I using the right jargon?) we had a nifty little tool on the English wikipedia that was much superior to what we have now under Top 50 contributors. (https://tools.wmflabs.org/sigma/articleinfo.py?page=User_talk:Ottawahitech&server=enwiki)
By a simple click of a button one could check out ALL editors who ever edited a page sorted 8 different ways. This is useful when trying to gauge the activity level of w:WP:WikiProjects, and comes in real handy for someone like me who only very occasionally participates on a talkpage, but when they do want to have some background on the potential audience before making a total fool out of themselves.
The tool displayed the list of editors who had participated on the page. There were 4 columns, each of which could be sorted front-to-back and vice verse:
- user ID
- number of edits to the page
- date of first edit
- date of last edit
It was quick and rarely (if ever) failed, while the tool we have now lists only the top 50 editors, cannot be sorted, and is broken a lot.
