Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Bots and gadgets/Gadget: Who is active

Gadget: Who is active

  • Problem: Sometimes you look for any active user on a list of users (campaigns, WikiProjects, experts etc.) to make a request. Often you have to check many of them until you find one active. Sometimes no one on a given list has been active for years and only time is wasted.
  • Proposed solution: There is a script that allows to see, after entering the user's page, when the user made the last edit. Perhaps we could build a tool that would present such information next to the link to the user page, just like the gadget "Replies with links" does. The displayed information could be the date of the last edition, or the active / inactive icon, if the user also set in their .css the range to which someone is considered as active (X minutes, X hours, X days, etc.).
  • Who would benefit: Organizers, Wikimedians looking for active users on various lists

  •   Oppose The navigation popups provide the last edited date. I don't see an additional time would benefit this proposal. While it could be helpful to see who is active based on last x timeframe as said in the proposal, I do not support any of the developments that could one day might be exploited in a breach of privacy. Wikimedia already publishes a lot of public logs, any further from the software is not recommended. Users who're interested can use the scripts. DaxServer (talk) 18:19, 4 February 2022 (UTC)
