A last modified by template should work, but you have to match the 
{=$LastModifiedBy} to a corresponding profile name (without the Profile 
Group.  For example, a template like this could be run from anyone's 
profile page (or a header or footer) and it would match 
{=$LastModifiedBy} to the {$Name} of that (profile) page that is is 
being run from:

(:if equal {=$LastModifiedBy} {$Name}:)
#[[{=$Group}.{=$Name}]] . . . {=$LastModifiedHost} . . . 
{=$LastModified} (:if:)

Note, if you were running this from a header or footer in a beta
version of PmWik, you would need to add asterisk like this {*$Name} to 
make sure that the returned name is the name of the profile page being 
viewed, rather than the GroupHeader or footer that contains the pagelist.

You could probably also use the author page variable instead of {$Name} 
or {*$Name} for a pagelist that could be run from any page and would 
report pages last modified by the person viewing the page (but only if 
the author page variable has a value, i.e. the person is logged in or 
has recently saved a page and supplied the correct author name).
