Request from Communications department via @hdothiduc
The data we would like to request:
(1) for each year the most viewed article for ~10 language Wikipedias – with the English description, an article image and the daily pageviews in that year;
(2) for each year the most edited article for ~10 language Wikipedias – with the English description, an article image and the daily edits in that year.
Here is a spreadsheet to show this dream data in a better way: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eLEuwGapXS_5CIpDHbmd9vhTWRkp5TKu7NDEAnMzFJM/edit#gid=0.
Why it's requested:
For Wikipedia's 20th birthday (https://groups.google.com/a/wikimedia.org/g/foundation-optional/c/x5FVKSKpw-o/m/qQCyANE3CwAJ) we will be creating pages on wikimediafoundation.org to celebrate this milestone. We want to feature data about top articles (the most viewed and most edited) from different language Wikipedias from the past 20 years.
When it's requested:
We would like to work with you to determine what is feasible in what time frame.
In October we have to present the final material to Heather Walls and Katherine Maher for approval, after which we can proceed to have the content translated into 6 languages. We launch in January.
Other helpful information:
The birthday as an Annual Plan OKR (Brand Awareness in MTP) is of high priority for the Communications department. We will use the data to design and develop an engaging, interactive page on the foundation website that will be visited by hundreds of thousands of readers, and utilized internationally by press and media. We expect these materials to receive wide distribution.
