I don't think MediaWiki has this functionality by default (anyone feel free to correct me here if Im wrong). There are various extensions which can be installed to enable this, but I can imagine this could also create a fair bit of load on wikis with quite alot of pages/content.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sp … ecialPages has some nice info, like e.g. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Sp … ctiveUsers
It's sorted alphabetically by user names, but you can copy the data to a file and sort it by number of edits, if you like.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?ti … et=Graysky <- your edits, sorted by 500 (to count pages easier) You seem to have less than 2k edits under your belt.
Thanks K - I found that actually but I had to write a script to parse out the relevant info. Was hoping this functionality was native.... you know, a top ten contributes, most active, etc.

Actually I would really love to see that added to the wiki site. It might encourage people to add more to the wiki, and it would be fun to know how much you've contributed.

The other side of this argument is that such a feature could lead to an inflation of useless or destructive edits by those who mistake quantity for quality. Contributing to the wiki, like virtue, ought to be its own reward.
(I don't think this can be considered necro-bumping since this issue is still current in exactly the same way as it was at the time of the OP, and the thread has only a few posts.)
We now maintain ArchWiki:Statistics, for those interested.

In ArchWiki:Contributing we do encourage making big changes through many small edits, so if somebody tries to "cheat" that way in order to "climb the table", it's a welcome thing. If ArchWiki:Statistics really made it to encourage 2 or 3 more people to make 5 style/grammar fixes every day, it would also be a fantastic achievement. About "useless" edits, I'm not sure what you mean, but if somebody tries to spam by e.g. doing and undoing the same edit several times every day, he will be quickly caught during e.g. recent changes patrolling (not to mention that he will get tired soon, as it doesn't seem very entertaining, even for a troll, who usually needs some kind of direct feedback from the other users). About "destructive" edits, they never happen with small edits, and are always done in good faith: if really somebody started "destroying" the wiki systematically in order to increase his edit count, he would be caught almost immediately and his account blocked indefinitely.
