With Wikiscan I can see stats of users whose userpage is listed in a specific category.

How can I see all contributions by Wikipedia users in a specific category? The category only contains their user pages.

You want the Special:Contributions list for users listed in that category. And indeed this is not something MediaWiki core offers. There is however a tool by Magnus Manske, Herding sheep, which produces list of edits by a list of users.

The toolbox item "Related changes" lists all recent changes to pages in the category (it's provided by MediaWiki core).

EducationProgram users have a tool (down right now) which is not particularly pretty but does the job for them. Others use WikiMetrics which however produces only grand totals.

  • This is only giving me a list of the changes of user pages, not a list of contributions of users in the categories.

  • @KasperSouren, ah you are right, I misunderstood what the category contained. Let me edit the answer (it may be deleted, I guess, but then we'd lose this conversation).
