Allow filtering by date range in Special:NewPagesFeed
Open, Needs TriagePublic


This has been brought up as a way to allow reviewers to more easily access pages in the middle of Special:NewPagesFeed and seems one of the non-controversial suggestions that has come from the WMF report on the growing new pages backlog. A quick way to filter pages in the new pages feed to a set date range could be helpful in getting pages in the middle more attention.

Putting this in here, but @MrX has requested that "please make it easy to use, with a slider or at least a calendar widget. It shouldn't require keyboard input and or multiple mouse actions." as a suggestion regarding this feature.

Honestly I won't be doing much page patrolling unless there's some way to start other than at the Newest or Oldest ends of the queue. I can't be paging endlessly to get to where I left off last time.

This shall be one of the foremost tasks in the development panel.Scrolling endlessly to get to where I left a certain-time-span back is ''dumb''.It has a huge benefit and there is no noticeable bane.

Any suggestions by the devs, please ask the NPP volunteers if the proposed solution is exactly what has been asked for before final roll out.

This may seem weird but I'd be happy with something that jumped me to a random starting date.

Either A): a jump to date button, or B) a calendar selection tool.
