This card tracks a top 10 wish from the Community Wishlist Survey: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey
Original proposal: Wikipedia uses the old stats.grok.se (http://stats.grok.se/) that should be patched to be used corretly from the other wikis. Several bug have been highlighted long time ago, but no one took them in charge. On the other hand recently has been developed wikiviewstats (https://tools.wmflabs.org/wikiviewstats/) that is a more complete and flexible, graphic tool. Unfortunately, it has been stop, and no one was able to take it back on track. I suppose that should be quicker to fix the above issues instead of writing from scratch a brand new stats tool able to monitor the accesses of any articles (fundamental to understand the visitor's insterests), however any of the two choices would be a good improvement. --Andyrom75 (talk) 22:01, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
Community Tech preliminary assessment:
Support: High. Unanimous support votes.
Impact: High. This tool Will help programs demonstrate impact, and will help researchers. Stats.grok.se goes down regularly, and is not reliable.
Feasibility: High (relatively easy, compared to other projects). Analytics has the pageview API, so it should mostly be front-end work. Could be implemented either on Labs or as a Wikimedia-specific extension. Labs implementation would be easier and faster. It needs front-end spec and design, iterations with community input.
Risk: Low. Just need to make sure it’s reliable and scalable so it doesn’t flood the API.
