Thanks for reading.
I am a sociological research. I have used the dump of Wikipedia English
enwiki-20100312-user_groups.sql for my research. I am confused by
'accountcreator' 'founder' and 'confirmed' meaning, would you
"Confirmed" users are ones that have been granted the autoconfirmed
"Accountcreator" was a special group greated for enwiki that bypasses
the account creation limits so they can help other people make accounts
"Founder" is a special right created for Jimmy Wales as founder of
Wikipedia. The rights have been historically been similar (recently
changed though) to that of a Steward.
As I know, users of wikipedia can change their status
by becoming helper,
admin or joining other groups. Since when, the user groups like this data
showed, the date this date collected? How I am supposed to do if I want the
data showing the change of user status?
You'd need to check the data from the logging table to see when
user rights were changed on individual users.
