In the German Wikipedia you don't get some rights depending on the number of reverted edits you have. I would like to know how many of my edits were reverted.

I know, where you can check if you may vote.

I know where you can see a very detailed log of your changes. Among others, you can see how many edits were deleted. Are deleted edits the same as reverted? Let's say you create a new article. For this article, you make 20 edits. Afterwards, the article gets deleted. Does your "revert count" go up by 20?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

reverted edits mean that your edits were removed just after you made them and the old version is restored. I don't know any right you get based on reverted edits in the German Wikipedia (it doesn't matter whether your edits are still in the article or not). Deleted edits go up when you make an edit to an article that is deleted afterwards. Lost in translation amybe? – neo Jul 5 '11 at 12:07
You get an "active sighter status" (see…) – moose Jul 5 '11 at 20:36
It only talks about deleted edits. Reverted edits are not taken into account. As I already said deleted edits are edits on articles that will be deleted afterwards. – neo Jul 6 '11 at 9:02
No, it also talks about reverted edits: "Maximal 5 Bearbeitungen des Benutzers wurden von Sichtern oder Administratoren zurückgesetzt." zurückgesetzt = reverted (gelöscht = deleted) – moose Jul 6 '11 at 10:27
Oh, I haven't seen it, thank you for pointing out. – neo Jul 6 '11 at 10:33

Of course WikiStats has this (for all languages). :) The top reverted/reverting users are at The full rankings should be somewhere in the huge CSV reports archives. They're updated rarely though and the format is a bit obscure (needs documentation at Meta-Wiki). Still great for digging!

However, as noted, I don't think this is a requirement for anything.
