Automatic sorting

Starting from Sunday 4 May, the list of maintainers will be sorted every Sunday automatically by User:Kynikos.bot 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.

Reasoning:

  • 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.
