@Ozzie10aaaa Thanks for the request, and sorry for the delay in responding—I was on vacation until today.
Unfortunately, I can't commit to working on this right now, particularly since the request doesn't explain why this list would be valuable.
However, perhaps @Ladsgroup would be interested in re-running his code from last year?
We have run this the last few years. You can see the prior data generated here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Medicine/Stats#Editor_numbers
We hand out Barnstars to all those who make more than 250 edits per year. We also consider this to be a useful metric with respect to keeping track of the health of the medical editing community.
Andrew West initially did the calculations for 2013. Ladsgroup do we not have the scripts on Github somewhere?
Thank you, that helps a lot to understand the value of doing this! Unfortunately, I still don't have any space to work on this in the near future (I'm still the only data analyst for the entire Contributors team), but I'll stay subscribed in case that changes.
Hmm...unfortunately, I can't think of anyone. Perhaps you could ask for help on email@example.com? That list is public, so it includes many number-crunchers at the Foundation and elsewhere.
User:Yair rand has calculated the initial data on top medical editors for 2017 but it only includes EN values https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Yair_rand/TopMed_2017 Yes wanting data from other languages aswell.
Wikipedia:WikiProject Medicine/Stats/Top medical editors 2017 (all). Talk page contains some instructions.
BTW, @Ladsgroup - you had the code :) 'editor count.py' in dexbot's folder at Toolforge
