My request is to add an sneak like this one to MediaWiki "Recent Changes" page:
http://meneame.net/sneak.php. It's like Digg spy: http://digg.com/spy.
Menéame is free software and I think that if someone knows a little bit of ajax
and php (not my case) it would be easy to implement it for MediaWiki. Source
code of meneame is available at http://meneame.net/archives/meneame-src.tgz.
I'm an "addict" to the "Recent Changes" page and I think that it would be a
great idea that this page was an "autorefresh" page, without having to click on
the "refresh" browser button every minute.
But what about Recentchanges on projects like Commons or en:wp where there are new entries by the second?
Wouldn't it be really difficult to do RC patrol and to go to pages of interest when the link you want to
click is scrolling down the page by about four or five entries per second?
using DHTML whe can make it scroll smoothly :-)
Changed component to "RecentChanges"
Has been rewritten in April 2010 to work with any wiki, instead of just Commons (which includes all WMF wikis and presumably other wikis aswell).
The tool also features hiding already patrolled uploads, filtering edits / newpages / both, filter by username, order (chronologic or reversed) and refresh interval and much more.
Good work, Krinkle!
It seems that after four years we found a tool ad hoc.
I'm going to give it a try ...
Another useful tool: http://wikistream.inkdroid.org
-need-review keyword, no patch is attached.
WikiHow also has a nice extension for rc patrolling:
They have it outside of RecentChanges though

This can be done inside MediaWiki core by polling the API. We'd probably want a way for Wikimedia to disable this feature and instead subscribe to stream.wikimedia.org via socket.io.
