Add "Established" date to Special:WikiDiscover
Open, LowPublic

Description

Add "Established" date to https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:WikiDiscover, so the user can find the newest wikis.

E.g., let's say a virus is eating the planet. Well being able to sort wikis by date surely will find any new wikis about it without needing to know their exact name.

The user could also find which wiki was the very first wiki.

If established dates are not stored anywhere, then certainly some "wiki number" is.

Special:Log/farmer will do that

We store the wiki request number and you’ll be able to work it out from there. Not sure how simple that’ll be SQL-wise in the code.

OK, do mention Special:Log/farmer on Special:WikiDiscover. But note it is real good for finding the newest wiki, but painful for finding the oldest.

If you have a specific interface change to make, it would be a lot easier in the format change x to y or add x below z

Well all I know is users might discover Special:WikiDiscover by looking at Special:SpecialPages, but then they need a way to learn about Special:Log/farmer, as they probably won't check there themselves.
