I got a request for the most edited articles in 2014.


Methods[edit]

Creating the monthly edits table:

SELECT
    LEFT(rev_timestamp, 6) AS month,
    rev_page AS page_id,
    COUNT(*) AS edits
FROM revision
WHERE rev_timestamp BETWEEN "2014" AND "2015"
GROUP BY month, page_id
ORDER BY month ASC, edits DESC;

Here's the aggregation up to a yearly total:

SELECT
    "2014" AS year,
    page_id,
    SUM(edits) AS edits
FROM staging.monthly_page_edits
GROUP BY page_id;

Results[edit]

Here's the top for the whole year.
