Pages or portions thereof should show a stability scale.
This could be colour coded and/or coded alphanumericaly as a level of relative
stability of contents of the wiki.
Stability should be calculated as a function of the lenght of time since an edit
and the nomber of visits in that time. Therefore pages that get edited often
would or get visited seldom would be ranked less stable than others which get
edited less often/visited frequently. It should be possible to activate a
highlight which would show the stability of different parts of a document. This
would serve to highlight hotspots where frequent changes are made, and also
It is very important that this analysis of stability be calculated relativly.
ie. The stability of one page would be determined relative to the stability of
all other pages.
For the time being, I changed the priority of this bug
to "normal"; the votes for this bug will show how
urgently this idea is considered, I think! But I like
this idea very much! With this feature the reader of an
article could easily guess if the article revision she/
he is watching is vandalised/spammed or not.

Creates a revision history graph
Calculating a relative stability would require schema changes and likely be
expensive, so instead I've made this alternate solution (attached). Although it
won't compare the article relative to others, it will nevertheless give you a
good idea of how 'stable it is'.
On the history page, between the subtitle and list of revisions, I've added a
bar graph which shows the number of revisions made to the article over the last
year. The graph is HTML-only (so the server doesn't waste time creating
images), works in FF and IE and can be shown/hidden like the TOC in a regular
Why would this be useful?
Anyway, Erik Z. probably will have stats like this up.
