Automatic sorting

Starting from Sunday 4 May, the list of admins 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 admins 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 admins that spend more time and effort than the others to maintain the wiki, in particular listing the inactive ones at the bottom.

and yet another reason for those of use with *slightly* OCD-ish tendencies to contirbute that little bit more... :) jasonwryan (talk) 17:24, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
Uh this gives me a great chance to thank them (but I should say "us" XD ) all once again for their (our) invaluable help in making this wiki one of the most useful documentation resources currently available to all Arch (but not only Arch) Linux users in the world! -- Kynikos (talk) 03:08, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
One more thing, it might be useful to describe the difference between this list and [1]. I assume those not listed here are the (former) devs? -- Lahwaacz (talk) 06:12, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
