Editor Stats API/GUI
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Create an API and/or GUI that can display information like:

  • How many page views have the non-redirect articles User X has created received in their lifetime?
  • How many bytes of text has User X added to all Wikipedia articles?
  • User X has actively edited Wikipedia on how many days since they created their account? And what is their activity level in the past 6 months...
  • What are the top 5 wikiproject categories of articles User X has edited in their lifetime? In the last 6 months?

I think these, and other similar queries could be used to create a Contributor's Dashboard (along with other statistics) which would demonstrate a lot of aggregate information about who does what and how much of it. The goal would be to create snapshots of what people work on that would make it easier to know whom to contact and whom you're dealing with when you interact. It'd also serve as a potential 'gamifying' motivator by letting editors see the growth in their stats over time.
