As an arbcom, we need to see the Pageviews for Special:Contributions/USERNAME. For example, when we receive hounding claims. That's why we opened https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T244639

Please add a sortable parameter on relative added text (proportion of added text of the author in the article).

Maybe it would be sensible to exclude counting reverts and rollbacks, as often pages are emptied accidentally by IPs and rollbacked by Recent-Changes-Patrollers to its previous state, which would be counted as adding a lot of text.

Same for self-created redirects, that are later converted into an article: they don't show up in 'pages created' either

what we're already using everywhere
yes, ISBN are part of references. We generally use ref-tags, but citing templates are much less used than in en.wp. For example, in natural sciences afaik mostly a PMID- and DOI-converter is used (http://www.hbz-da.de/wikipedia/PMID2reference.php) instead of templates. This also reduces imho unnecessary code and increases readability of the source text. I wish magic links were extended to reduce the amount of special characters in the source text. And due to the necessity of mouse, trackpad or trackpoint for all operations besides typing words in the visual editor, it is much slower than writing wikitext. Which could be simplified with more magic links. So VE is only the answer for some. Most wikipedians i know personally (mainly active and very active editors) write wikitext. And i don't think his argument was that nobody would care to make links but most would prefer not to have to and some won't care to.

Since the vast majority of editors are non-coders, as well as potential new authors (especially older people), increasing the amount of special characters in the source text (e.g. for templates) is imho a step in the wrong direction. I wish more of mediawiki would work like magic words...
