Automatic sorting

Starting from Sunday 4 May, the list of maintainers will be sorted every Sunday automatically by in descending order by the number of edits made in the previous 30 days (current values are in Special:ActiveUsers) plus the number of edits made with any associated bot accounts in the same period.


  • The users at the top of the list are more likely to be contacted for generic questions, and the most active maintainers are more likely to be up to date with the current wiki status, procedures and conventions, so their answers can in general be more accurate.
  • In accordance with the concept of meritocracy this will give more credit to the users that spend more time and effort than the others to maintain the wiki, in particular listing the inactive ones at the bottom.

Internal error while accessing Special:Categories

Not sure if this is the right place to report a bug in ArchWiki, but I'm getting "Internal error" when accessing Special:Categories page, with the following message being displayed:

[3bd81a62d2e22997dd425bf6] 2017-09-12 17:20:52: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Assert\ParameterAssertionException"

It was written in my native language Portuguese, but I translated for your convenience.

Thanks for the report. We've already noticed it and unfortunately have no idea how to fix it... There were more issues with categories which were fixed recently, but not this one. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 17:29, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Is this related?

Yes, but they haven't found the cause of rubbish entering the database and the scripts they developed to cure the symptoms on Wikipedia apparently didn't make a difference on ArchWiki - I guess we have different kind of rubbish. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 18:47, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
