We see "of which 1 (or 1.82%) has Sysops rights."
Well, instead of there linking to a non-existent page talking about what it
is like to be a sysop, perhaps link to e.g.,
the default, and let fancy sites customize that link if they want,
thus eliminating one more non-existent default link.
Edit [[MediaWiki:Userstatstext]] to have different text.
The links can be edited via [[MediaWiki:grouppage-sysop]], [[MediaWiki:grouppage-bureaucrat]] and [[MediaWiki:grouppage-bot]].
Well, wouldn't it be nice to provide a link to the list of sysops,
bots, etc. (Special:Listusers&group=sysop, etc.) along with the
currently useless by default empty present link, as a compromise?
Don't make the user do handstands just to find out who those mystery
You must admit that mentioning the elite class of sysops, an leaving
figuring out what link (Special:Listusers&group=sysop) to hit to find
out just who they are, is a brush-off to the lesser users.
The new link pair could look like: ... sysops (list) (describe).
It's not a bug, you can change it yourself. No need to implement it in default software.
>It's not a bug
I meant enhancement. OK, let them find out who the sysops are the hard way by default.
It seems to me that it would make sense to have a link to the list of sysops somewhere in that sentence, if not as a standalone link, then perhaps worked into the sentence somehow, e.g.
"...of which [[Special:Listusers/sysop|4,000]] are..."
I'm not too sure about that particular example, since single-digits are a bit harder to spot, and it's potentially a more meaningless link. Other ideas might be a "(view list)" link either after the number, e.g
"...of which 4,000 (view list) are..."
or at the end of the sentence, e.g.
"...of which 4,000 are sysops (view list)."
Component: Special pages -> i18n
Fixed with r40636 in combination with bug 5619.
