Hello colleagues, I'm Clovermoss, and I'm sending out the email thread this week. * From Clovermoss * I have smiled several times this week, and I'm thankful for that. I'm thankful for the start of another year and another decade. I have observed and participated in a lot of WikiLove between editors wishing each other a happy new year. I'm excited for what 2020 will bring, as I'm anticipating some important milestones being reached this year in my life.
I saw an interesting thread on the mailing list <https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2020-January/094066.html> about an astronaut editing Wikipedia from the ISS <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISS>, and I'm thankful that my curiousity about Earth and beyond has been piqued. I was one of those kids who used to dream about being an astronaut. I still think of that career path as fascinating, although not one I am likely to take myself. I admire people who follow their dreams, whatever those dreams happen to be. * From Pine * "Email from the Analytics mailing list: "Introducing statistics for media files <https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/analytics/2019-December/006739.html> ". Hi everybody, Just in time for the holidays, we're announcing the addition of Media Requests to our metrics catalog. Over the last few months we've been working on a dataset offering request numbers for every single image, audio, video and document in the Wiki universe, since 2015. This means we have 3 new metrics available in the Analytics Query Service: * Media requests per referrer: e.g. how many images, audio, videos... have been accessed from English Wikipedia in the last month? '''73 billion for November.''' * Media requests per file: e.g. how many hits did [[Christmas tree#/media/File:Yggdrasil.jpg|this cool painting]] get in November? The answer is 483,791 hits. * Top files by media requests: e.g. what was the most popular video yesterday, December 22nd? Fred Rogers testifying before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications. Fun! You can check out the top 1000 media files for any month or day, for any media type. Media requests is, in terms of absolute numbers, a huge dataset, so the per file and top metrics are still being loaded with data all the way to 2015. We expect this loading to finish in mid January. You can read more about this in Wikitech. As usual if you have any questions about the dataset or the new metrics please send them our way here on the list or via Phabricator. Happy holidays!
