The Pages Created tool provides analysis of pages that a user has created.
From the form, you can limit results by namespace, whether or not to include redirects, deleted pages, as well as a date range. Note however that it is not possible to know whether a deleted page was a redirect.
The summary section gives various statistics about pages created in the given namespace. If all namespaces are request, there is a pie chart comparing the number of edits made to each namespace. You can selectively show and hide namespaces by hovering over the entries in the table and clicking on the ✕ icon.
If the specified wiki has PageAssessments installed, it will show a table with counts of pages created for each unique assessment.
This section lists the actual pages created by the user. Please note that some deleted pages may have been recreated by the user or a different user, which are marked as 'Recreated'.
This sometimes causes pages to appear as if the user created them, when in reality they only created a redirect that later someone else turned into an article.
If there are more than 1,000 results, you will be able to paginate to see older results.
Due to limitations with MediaWiki, XTools cannot efficiently determine whether a page was a redirect when it was first created. This sometimes causes pages to appear as if the user created them, when in reality they only created a redirect that later someone else turned into an article.
Please note that if a user has any deleted pages, this is not necessarily bad. XTools has no automated means of knowing why a page was deleted, and whether or not it was due to wrongdoing by the user. In the list of pages, you can hover over the 'Deleted' text to see the administrator's reason for deleting the page.
XTools only knows whether a deleted page was a redirect if the
mw-new-redirect tag is associated with the deleted revision, because XTools cannot see deleted content.
This tag was introduced to MediaWiki in December 2017, so deleted pages from before then may or may not have been redirects.
Hiding results from XTools
XTools reads directly from the live database, thus removing the relevant data from the public database is the only way to hide it. This can be accomplished by having a wiki administrator hide the username from public view, both on the initial revision to the page and in the Page Creation log.
