Description db [inactive,noenotif] 2011-01-23 13:21:39 UTC
The page [[Special:ListUsers]] has a option "Sort by creation date". I have not found a api param for this.

Maybe add a ausortcreation param to list=allusers.

There's no index on this, so this whole feature just sounds like a bad idea to me.
Comment 2 Bawolff (Brian Wolff) 2011-01-24 21:24:20 UTC
It appears as if [[special:listusers]] is actually sorting on user_id, not on user_registration (since user_id is auto-increment, earlier users have smaller user_id's in theory) which is indexed.

If you look closely at special:listusers sorted by creation date on enwikipedia, you'll notice that some of the users who don't have creation dates are interleaved with users who do have creation dates. (example: )
