Description Ryan Schmidt 2007-09-01 19:05:57 UTC
Would it be possible to add a log that gives a list of contributors' first edits. If so, could the entry be styled like date/time, user name, user links, page, edit summary? Example of two such entries:

* 12:34, 1 January 2007 [[User:Some user|Some user]] ([[User talk:Some user|Talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Some user|contribs]]) edited "[[Some page]]" (summary)
* 01:23, 31 December 2006 [[User:Another user|Another user]] ([[User talk:Another user|Talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/Another user|contribs]]) edited "[[Another page]]" (summary)

Of course, the date/time would be styled differently based off preferences, and the user links based off user rights, but that's a general idea of the entry. If this isn't too hard/impossible, would you be able to do it? Thank you.

A better option would be a report which extracts this information for all users; logs are not retroactive.

The same information can be acquired through:

I think he means such as Special:Contributions/newbies, but only with users first edits.

Most newbies make only one or two edits, so the difference would be negligible and the use-case is unclear. Suggesting WONTFIX.
Comment 5 Ryan Schmidt 2012-11-12 02:11:08 UTC
I don't even remember why I requested this, so I second the WONTFIX and will just go ahead and be bold by marking it as such.
