The Contribution Scores extension polls the wiki database to locate contributors with the highest contribution volume – it is also in stable use on a high-volume wiki such as translatewiki.net. The extension is intended to add a fun metric for contributors to see how much they are helping out.

The score is defined as (number of unique pages edited) + 2 * square root ((number of edits) - (number of unique pages edited)).

InstallationEdit

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called ContributionScores in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    wfLoadExtension( 'ContributionScores' );
    // Exclude Bots from the reporting - Can be omitted.
    $wgContribScoreIgnoreBots = true; 
    // Exclude Blocked Users from the reporting - Can be omitted.
    $wgContribScoreIgnoreBlockedUsers = true;
    // Use real user names when available - Can be omitted. Only for MediaWiki 1.19 and later.
    $wgContribScoresUseRealName = true;
    // Set to true to disable cache for parser function and inclusion of table.
    $wgContribScoreDisableCache = false;       
    // Each array defines a report - 7,50 is "past 7 days" and "LIMIT 50" - Can be omitted.
    $wgContribScoreReports = [
        [ 7, 50 ],
        [ 30, 50 ],
        [ 0, 50 ]
    ];
    
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.35 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing this extension using wfLoadExtension(). If you need to install this extension on these earlier versions (MediaWiki 1.35 and earlier), instead of wfLoadExtension( 'ContributionScores' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/ContributionScores/ContributionScores.php";

CustomizationEdit

    background-color: #aaa;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    padding-left: .4em;
}
.contributionscores .header {

    border-bottom: 1px solid #999;
    font-weight: bold;

.contributionscores .header td {
    padding-left: .2em;
