2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Miscellaneous/Filter user contribution page by number of bytes changed
The survey has concluded. Here are the results!
- Problem: It is difficult to identify "major" contributions of an editor, particularly if they are prolific editors and their edit history spans years and thousands of edits.
- Who would benefit: Admins and editors reviewing user's contributions.
- Proposed solution: Add a filter on user contribution pages to filter by the changes by number of bytes added/deleted. That way, for example, one could get a listing of user's contributions to the main space where they added more that 500 bytes.
- More comments:
- Phabricator tickets:
- Translations: none yet
- I wouldn’t say that this would be a particular benefit, profanity is usually added in smaller edits, and page blankings are already caught by various abuse filters. How would this benefit people more? --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 😒🌏🔒) (My global unlock 😄🌏🔓) 12:56, 10 November 2017 (UTC)
- My tool mw:User:PerfektesChaos/js/resultListSort already offers sorting by page name/title of contributions.
- As soon I find time I will extend this to sort contribution page alternatively back by date-time, by size, by summary.
- Sorting is nearly the same as filtering but leaves the smaller number below. The page will be kept locally, but changes entry order as often as desired.
- Note that this would work on existing result, not retrieving results from the server matching a condition.
- There is already a filtering form, by namespace, by date, by minor, by current, by new accounts, by page creation. That might be extended by min/max size.
- This is less useful, adding an infobox will bring a big change, and make translate or refine may be small or even reduced bytes. Period and sorting may be useful.--YFdyh000 (talk) 15:13, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
