I've added a new feature to the wiki articles, displaying all the contributors to that article on the right hand side. The listing is ordered by percentage contributed (same calculation as for ad sharing) and shows the percentages as well.

Another addition is to show the member's website link right under their username. This is to further encourage contributions as it should help build traffic to your personal website. It will only show for those who have contributed at least 15% of the article though.

I've also improved the way website links are shown in general, so there is an option when editing your profile to also add a "Website Title". Then, when your website link is shown, it will actually show the title instead of the URL (see my profile for an example).

Cool feature! Just discovered this new feature an hour ago and spent about 10-20 minutes looking at how much I've contributed in the popular articles. :)

Some personal website link currently breaks the page because of the length, and then I saw yours with a title. Hopefully more and more members will start using the Website title.

Yes, it's a bit problematic with the longer URLs. I set the maximum title length so that it would just fit in the allocated space, so whenever a title is added it is no problem.

Is there a limited amount of characters an article has to have?
It is not shown everywhere and also not when it is only 1 contributor (100%).

Cool stuff indeed!

No, no limited amount of characters. I won't rule out something like that happening at least for the display of links though.

100% should show for sure. If that was a really new article, then it's possible that the share hasn't been calculated yet. This happens on a scheduled basis once every 3 hours at the moment. Once that's been calculated it will show (if it doesn't let me know!)

Nope, I guess not.
Few weeks ago I was editing some natural unesco sites. Pretty sure i was the first and only contributor..mainly a small 500 charachter introduction or something.
Illulisat Icefjord is an example. Maybe you can add something and see if it shows afterwards;)
cheers!

Pretty cool indeed! This should also help attract some knowledgeable posters that run specialist websites and want some credit for creating a masterpiece of an article on TP :)

Hey, that's weird. Ok, so this seems to be uncovering a bug that I would never have noticed otherwise Will have to look into it more I'm afraid.
