I threw this "All rated articles by quality and importance" table onto the page. Should we track how we are doing with it? Also, it would be nice to have some sort of a graphical indication on how the articles move around (hopefully all up into the FA and FL rows by the end of the week. ). -- Alan Liefting (talk - contribs) 06:16, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Is there a way to collect pageview stats for a given template? Not for the template page itself, but the sum total of all pageviews for pages that included the template. AlexanderPico (talk) 00:01, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
I am trying to figure out a few values:
Why are so many Wikipedia Stat pages no longer updated? Some of them stop in 2006, 2009, 2011...collecting information about readers are looking for and what editors are working on is key to evaluating your progress. With the tools that are available these days, it's not even that complicated. Wikipedia dropping the ball just doesn't make sense. Newjerseyliz (talk) 21:49, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't understand one of the graphs in this article - the '% of editors who make 100 edits of those who make 5'; I think it's saying that, for example, in Jan 13, there were approximately 10 times as many editors who made 5 edits as made 100. That seems plausible, but even if I've interpreted it correctly, what does that tell us? 5 and 100 are somewhat arbitrary numbers. Are the figures available for a frequency graph of the number of editors who make 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc edits per month?
Love to see a ranking of articles by 1-day, 1-week, 1-month and 1-year edit frequency. Shows you where the hot spots are. I speculate that this often indicates an increased role for admins. Lfstevens (talk) 05:52, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
After watching a variety of interviews on Youtube of Jimmy Wales, I'd love to read more statistics. He discusses such things as donation percentages and categories, and popularity of different languages. It'd be nice to see this expanded, except I'm not sure where to find these kind of statistics if they are not released by Wikipedia themselves? (Tetriminos (talk) 18:03, 12 December 2013 (UTC))
Greetings everyone. After much processing has been brought to bear, I've aggregated all the page view statistics for 2013 (I'm the guy who does WP:5000 on a weekly basis). I thought these would likely be of broader interest, so I decided to post here. For a more analytical discussion about what drives these statistics, see our older Signpost article.

By my rough SWAG, there are ±1,700,00 back-logged tags on WP that need some sort of work or editing. With this in mind, some attention is needed to determine the trends as to these tags. Is this a growing problem, steady-state, or what? (Sadly the WikiProject which might look at this figure, and thereby give us some analysis, is inactive.) – S. Rich (talk) 06:48, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Found one useful one so far:
Can I list my total edits in bytes (changed bytes + added bytes + deleted bytes)?
I cannot find anything about byte listing at https://tools.wmflabs.org/xtools/.
Prior to the creation of the WP:TOP25 in January 2013, aside from year-end reports, I was looking for any weekly/monthly reports of article traffic. I see that around September 2006 a tool called "Wikicharts" was created which seemed to have a monthly Top 100. Is anyone aware of those being archived anywhere? I would like to resuscitate that data to include in our Top25 archives. Even farther back, in 2002-2004, it appears monthly usage reports were posted at wikimedia.org/stats/en.wikipedia.org -- anyone know where they might be currently found? Some can be unearthed on archive.org (Dec 2002), but I was hoping they might be compiled somewhere. I was able to dig up and create a Chart for February 2004 -- After Current events (44,660 views), the most popular articles were Goatse.cx (24,425 views), United States (22,267 views), and Lunokhod program (21,742 (due to appearing on Slashdot).

Shouldn't we add a separate entry for https://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/animations/wivivi/wivivi.html ? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:12, 12 March 2018 (UTC)--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 04:12, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
Would it be possible/practical to have statistics on length of activity on Wikipedia? Some distinction would have to be made between 'regular contributors' and 'intermittent/occasional contributors (possibly with occasional flurries of activity)'. Jackiespeel (talk) 15:56, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Where can I find any policy about including statistics in articles? The Manual of Style section about table sizes says "overloading tables with too much detailed statistical data is against policy" but that is not explained or even covered here. It seems there is no policy about including statistics in articles and the only reason that statistic are against policy is because large tables of unexplained statistics make articles unreadable. I would have thought that some mention of what statistics should be presented in articles should appear on a page entitled statistics, even if it was just a reference redirecting editors to read a Manual of Style article or a similar policy statement. Can something be added to help the reader? - 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Hello, is there anywhere doing statistics on talk page activity? How many talk posts a day, how many pages active at one time? I'm interested in proposing a sort of live cataloguing system for a sort of noticeboard of talk page activity. I need to figure out how many talk pages are in discussion during one week, two weeks, three weeks, four weeks type of thing, and also the rate of unanswered talk posts among them. Ever been a project recording that sort of thing? ~ R.T.G 10:04, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
