CloudFlare has suffered a massive security issue affecting all of its customers, including Rosetta Code. I will be expiring all passwords and session cookies sometime Friday, February 24th. Cookie longevity will also be reduced for 30 days. --Michael Mol (talk) 04:56, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Rosetta Code:Village Pump/Sort popular pump pages

From Rosetta Code
Sort popular pump pages
This is a particular discussion thread among many which consider Rosetta Code.


A Python implementation of pump sorting code.


I was reading [[1]]. I'm programming the Village Pump sorter right now.

I will just read all {{vp|...}} and get last edit date. And just sort it by edit date. Very simple.

IMO, it's better than rotate new pump pages to the top of list, and old to bottom. --Guga360 21:22, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

My code is 80% done. --Guga360 22:01, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

I already runned it. It's working perfectly. (I used GugaTagFixer to test it.) I will post source code here. --Guga360 22:37, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

What happened?

It seems like we never did anything with this code. What's up with that? --Mwn3d 12:55, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
