Wrong edit numberEdit

I noticed that the bot has stopped updating this list. This list still has me at 83,980 when it should be at 84,470. Catfurball (talk) 21:41, 7 June 2022 (UTC)

@Catfurball: Bot has stopped working since the 2nd of June. I've gone ahead and notified the bot operator. Hopefully a reply will be gotten soon. Aidan9382 (talk) 04:37, 8 June 2022 (UTC)

"Wikipedia:EDITS" listed at Redirects for discussionEdit

This discussion will occur at Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Log/2022 June 27#Wikipedia:EDITS until a consensus is reached, and readers of this page are welcome to contribute to the discussion.

Number of manual edits?Edit

Many editors rack up a lot of edits by using automated tools. I'm interested to see number of edits that exclude automated ones. Is that possible to determine? ~Anachronist (talk) 15:14, 27 July 2022 (UTC)

I'd like to see this, too, Anachronist. How should automated tools be defined, and is there a way to do that in the software? XTools includes manual uses of undo, pending changes reverts, redirects, and page moves in the same '(semi-)automated' category as Huggle, Twinkle, and HotCat: that seems a bit off. BlackcurrantTea (talk) 07:39, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
Are all edits performed with automatic tools tagged, like edits with AWB and WPCleaner are? GoingBatty (talk) 14:14, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
I don't know, but many are tagged. Maybe a first step would be to count edits that aren't tagged by known automated tools. ~Anachronist (talk) 19:43, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
Should HotCat be included? It's pretty much just a search box. Randy Kryn (talk) 21:36, 1 August 2022 (UTC)

What to do with site blocked editors on the list?Edit

Since they can't edit any page...

then what do we do with them on the list? Sheep (talk) 19:49, 17 August 2022 (UTC)

Nothing. Why do you want to remove them? Ymblanter (talk) 20:04, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
since they're blocked anyways, maybe we can strike them out? Sheep (talk) 23:24, 17 August 2022 (UTC)
If we do this can I acquire Lugnuts' edit count? I think it's what he would have wanted. Jevansen (talk) 01:09, 18 August 2022 (UTC)
you can if you want Sheep (talk) 03:07, 18 August 2022 (UTC)
Should we mark blocked/sitebanned editors on the list as such, we have marked rights before Thingofme (talk) 08:50, 28 August 2022 (UTC)
yeah, maybe strike them out or something? Sheep (talk) 18:12, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
Of course not. As an extreme example, should O.J. Simpson be removed from NFL yardage lists? He ran them he gets them. Maybe a better question is how many of these site-banned editors have been banned for a long time and, depending on the seriousness of their on-site deeds, have possibly rehabilitated themselves or otherwise matured and could be offered another chance (even if they haven't asked for reinstatement). Randy Kryn (talk) 18:39, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
Agreed Randy Kryn, some people seem to be trying to censor/re-write history - which we do not do - Arjayay (talk) 19:23, 6 September 2022 (UTC)

List of Wikipedians by content/characters added?Edit

I am curious if creating a "List of Wikipedians by content added" has been considered. I think those with a high number of edits probably use bots to make edits mass scale. I think a measure by content added might be more meaningful, if possible. OvertAnalyzer (talk) 19:41, 6 September 2022 (UTC)

Why added? why not deleted? We suffer from an excess of unsourced / inappropriate additions - Arjayay (talk) 19:53, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
That might be of value also. OvertAnalyzer (talk) 23:06, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
@OvertAnalyzer: There also Wikipedia:List of bots by number of edits for those editors with separate bot accounts. Some Wikipedians a high number of edits on this list may manually use automated tools to make edits mass scale. GoingBatty (talk) 21:50, 6 September 2022 (UTC)
