Special pages provide a wealth of information on users. For example:

However the toolserver provides additional tools - many with far greater analytics power

  • Articles and missing Content
    • Contributors: shows the version history of a page, with options for sorting, filtering, grouping, and different output formats. May be used to copy a version history on a wiki page.
    • Misstake Based on a page, the most wanted missing articles (very quick!).
    • Top topics (top 50 viewed per hour), updated hourly.
    • Most wanted articles, updated daily.
  • Catagories
    • CatScan 2.0 is a faster and more powerful rewrite of the well-known Catscan.
    • Category intersection lists all pages or images that are in a set of given categories.
    • CategoryTree: shows the category structure as a dynamic tree. Can be installed as a sidebar in most browsers.
    • [1]: search categories with subcategories recursively, for intersection with other categories, templates, stubs, recent changes, etc.
    • CommonSense: try to guess into which category on Wikimedia Commons an image belongs.
  • Copyright
  • User interataction
  • Voting Statistics
    • AfD Vote Counter - Analyzes statistics regarding a user's voting patterns at Articles for Deletion.
    • Admin AfD Counter - Analyzes statistics regarding an admin's AfD closure patterns.
    • RfA Vote Counter - Analyzes statistics regarding a user's voting patterns at Requests for Adminship.
  • New Page Patrol
    • New Page Patrol Report - A report on which editors have been recently patrolling new pages, their patrolling speed, and which side of the queue they're patrolling from.
    • New Page Patrol Graph - A graph of how many days worth of articles are in the queue at Special:NewPages, up to a 30-day history updated hourly.
  • Edit Searches
  • Misc
    • Related places, shows locations of places linked from a wiki page on Google maps.
    • Bong, a wiki(m|p)edia-internal search interface similar to bing.com - kinda.
  • Users
    • edit counter
    • [2]: finding users that were active in the last minutes/hours, filtered by groups, tags or categories.
    • [3]: Image gallery, optionally filtered or grouped by user. Shows usage and tagging status. Also supplies an RSS feed of recent uploads.
    • ToolTOC - online overview of available tools.
    • download page - may not be up to date. Beware that the downloads are just for kicks - nothing there is ready for production, most is tailored specifically for the toolserver.
    • source browser - read the source, Luke
    • usage statistics - some usage statistics, collected with rrdtool
  • Images
    • CheckUsage: find out where an image from the Commons is used on Mediawiki projects.
    • CommonSense: try to guess into which category on Wikimedia Commons an image belongs.
    • Gallery: Image gallery, optionally filtered or grouped by user. Shows usage and tagging status. Also supplies an RSS feed of recent uploads.
    • UntaggedImages: list untagged images, optionally filtered or grouped by user.
    • OrphanImages: list orphan images, optionally filtered or grouped by user (Commons only).
    • CommonsClash: list local images that "shadow" an image on the commons. Also shows if the local copy is identical.
    • CategoryIntersect: in image mode, this lists all images contained or used in a given category and its subcategories.
    • [4]: Search for images and other media files in a category, including subcategories. Allows filters for license requirements, file size, resolution, file type, etc.
    • [5]: A page providing the Picture of the Day in different resolutions via a stable URL

These just scratch the serface of what users have created on toolserver.
