Set this to the number of authors that you want to be credited below an article text (in the footer). Set it to zero to hide the attribution block, and a negative number (like -1) to show all authors. Note that this will require 2-3 extra database hits for every single page view, which can have significant impact on performance for large wikis. The users are listed in chronological order by most recent edit.
Example: This page was last edited time, date by MediaWiki user XXX. Based on work by MediaWiki users Foo, Bar, Baz.
