I have no information on what did or did not happen on any specific days -- but I can say that the data on frdata.wikimedia.org is unfiltered -- e.g. it includes major gifts donations as well as online fundraising efforts.
We used to filter out everyone above 10,000 $ USD, but I neglected to add the same filter for this data -- mostly because that really wasn't really a good filter. There are better ways to filter; but the best one I can think of off the top of my head I don't have bandwidth at this moment to implement. In and of itself not an issue, just an FYI, but I would also have to generate this and a filtered file because the filtered file would only be good for online fundraising which does not reveal the whole truth about how the WMF fundraises. ~Matt Walker Wikimedia Foundation Fundraising Technology Team On Mon, Nov 25, 2013 at 4:50 AM, Andrew Gray <andrew.g...@dunelm.org.uk>wrote: > Megan can certainly correct me if I've got the wrong end of the stick, > but I think these are probably once-off payments rather than the > result of a good day of banner-based fundraising. > > The October report estimates $2.7m fundraising through the month, but > the spreadsheet data totals $3.8m.
