What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

The traditional users page has recently been replaced by a more dynamic reputation-league-style page. While I welcome this change in general, I would like to have the "newest" tab back.

While I agree that for example the "oldest" tab served little purpose, the newest tab can be useful: For example if you want to keep track of the rate with which new users sign up on a beta site (or if you want to see whether a recent blog post/reddit post/whatever caused an increase in sign ups or whether a friend you've been nagging to sign up has done so yet).

So I propose that in the addition to the league-style tabs, there should also be a "newest" tab which sorts the user by the date they registered, newest first.

I see the new users tab is back, but it is not sorted by join date. –  Kirk Kuykendall Mar 2 '11 at 16:59

Whether this came and went, it's back with the ability to sort "new users" based on "creation date":

enter image description here

"New users" are defined as those "who joined in the last 45 days".

Of course, the following query will also do the trick (with a bit of a delay from data in SEDE):

select Id, DisplayName, CreationDate
from Users
where DateDiff("d",CreationDate,getdate()) <= 45
order by CreationDate desc;
