Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Miscellaneous/simple export of SpecialPages/Proposal/en

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
  • Problem: There are special pages like ancient, lonely or what links here. If someone wants use this list for further work he must copy it, in some cases clean (e.g. in Special:AncientPages delete date or add [[]] or both) and then use. It would be useful, if this list can be exported as wikipage, plaintext, csv or json.
  • Proposed solution: Provide possibility to export specified number or all entries in special page.
  • Who would benefit: Maintenancers, experienced users, bot operators
  • More comments: This is possible using Petscan or Quarry, but needs more skills and not everything is possible. Petscan is easier to use, but probably not useful for creating list of lonelypages. query have more possibilities, but only few users know how to use it.
