    About the Wikistats project[edit]


    When initially created, the MetaWikimedia:List of Wikipedias by size was compiled and updated by hand. In parallel, User:RobiH developed the MetaWikimedia:List of largest wikis out of the existing Meatball:BiggestWiki, and continued updating it by hand. Soon he became fed up with his weekly session surfing through all the statistics pages to update the page counts etc. In this situation he met User:mutante who offered to write a script at least covering the MediaWikis automatically. Soon this script was deployed for all the Wikimedia Project lists on MetaWikimedia:. Today almost 20,000 Mediawikis are being updated like this at least every 24 hours.


    Still heavily under construction. See Wikistats/ToDo.


    Our next goals will be to extend these statistics to also cover other Wiki Engines. A first corresponding task was assigned to User:MattisManzel.
