It exists but is visible only to logged-in users (as with most "special" pages). By this I mean the "permissions error" is replaced by a phony 404 and an http-refresh redirect back to the home page.
The log-in screen is in the usual place
, but account creation is disabled
, and thus would require an existing admin to create an account and e-mail you the password for it.
The closest thing available thing to a list of editors is an index of pages in namespace 2
, but this excludes "red link" accounts which haven't posted a user-page, fails to exclude pages for which no account exists, and offers no immediate way to see which ones have made any edits (as Special:Contributions
is also private).
While edit history
for a page is disabled, you could reconstruct it from individual edits if you know what you're doing and there is a page you're curious about.
That's because one thing they forgot to suppress is the "diff" view (example

MediaWiki is, if you didn't know, very compatible and can be configured in all kinds of ways to fit certain requirements.
I run a configured MediaWiki site with 63,000 pages, so yeah, I did know that. But, when you say that it's "very compatible" -- with what?
Compatible with a wide variety of needs and purposes, I think (e.g. YourWikiBiz employs features for which other sites may find no use, and vice versa).

It's a wiki, because of the software, but configured in ways that go against what a wiki is presumed to be - in terms of the open collaboration and free editing (for 'free' read 'merciless').
Shrug. Definitions will always vary.
