A hacked version of SpecialListusers to list last 1% of accounts (2.87 KB, text/plain)
2005-08-25 20:40 UTC, Robert Rohde

Description Jason Lee, AllyUnion 2005-03-03 23:02:11 UTC
[[Special:Contributions/newbies]] only produces a list of contributions by new
users.  There does not seem to be any log that produces newly created users.

A hacked version of SpecialListusers to list last 1% of accounts

Having a new user list seemed so easy, I decided to make one.  This is a
stripped down version of SpecialListusers with a slightly different query
designed to catch only the last 1% of registered accounts and show them in
descending order of registration.  Maybe now we can have new games of spot the
Willy or other troll before their rampages begin?

As is generally the case, I do not have access to a working version of
Mediawiki, so I have never tested this code.  Hope it works.  Seemed fairly
trivial though.

Comment 2 Carbonite 2005-08-29 19:09:40 UTC
I support the addition of this feature. This could be very useful for spotting 
vandals and wouldn't seem to be prone to abuse. 
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-08-29 19:24:37 UTC
There's an extension in CVS for adding a log of user creations to Special:Log
Comment 4 Nick Tarleton 2005-08-29 22:25:26 UTC
Support inclusion. Useful for Willyfighting.
Comment 5 mark_sweep 2005-08-30 01:39:06 UTC
This is useful, but it may not be enough as a Willy-repellant, because the Willy
uses appropriately "aged" sleeper accounts that may drop off the top 1% list.  I
think in the long run a user list sorted by account creation time would be more
flexible.  See the related RfE I've posted here:
Comment 6 Robert Rohde 2005-09-08 21:33:45 UTC
Aevar seems to have installed his log, so this is done now.
