You can take a look at the testsite:

Unfortunately many old revisions have been deleted by the software, so
there will be missing some (or many?) of her edits. But it's true that
she's not very active on the German WP.

I'm more worried about someone who's been writing articles about Silvio
Gesell's theories about "Freiwirtschaft", "Freigeld", etc. (I don't know
the English expressions). It seems we don't have anybody with enough
experience in economic theories on board, so in my opinion there has
been too little critical dispute about it.
