Add wikimania.wikimedia.org to pageview definition
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimate Story Points

Description

Requested at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Permalink/18887491#Addition_of_wikimaniawiki%3F

Apparently moving forward, https://wikimania.wikimedia.org will be used for all future Wikimanias. Since it is not a temporary wiki, it may make sense to add it to the pageviews API.

This is not only not in the whitelist, it's excluded from the pageview definition. The logic was that we don't want to include traffic to wikis that are not about "content". I believe we made an exception for outreach wiki, so we have to talk about whether we want to just allow all wikis.

This is a minor change, but can we have a reason why this is needed? We're wondering who's interested in this data.

This is a minor change, but can we have a reason why this is needed? We're wondering who's interested in this data.

From a wiki-maintainer/organizer perspective, it would be helpful to be able to see if large quantities of traffic are going to outdated pages/redirects/etc, so that those pages can be prioritized for fixing.

(and guessing at 2 more...)
From a Wikimania-session-leader perspective, it would be helpful to know if anyone has looked at the links I sent out, or found them organically via the Schedule/etc.
From a Wikimania-attendee perspective, it might be interesting to know which sessions are getting the most (or least) pageviews.

As we are going to a continuous hosting of wikimanias, and are meant to be importing 10+ years of works it should give indications of what and where we are seeing historic viewing.

At this point, can we even tell what is being watched, and in which language. I was thinking that getting idea of the languages of pages being watch would 1) give us an indication of the respective interest from language groups, and hopefully give us an idea on which pages getting hits may need to have a focus for translation.

Milimetric raised the priority of this task from Medium to High.
Milimetric added a project: Analytics-Kanban.
Milimetric moved this task from Next Up to In Progress on the Analytics-Kanban board.
