kevinator added a project: Analytics.

To clarify for onlookers, this refers to or the corresponding Wikistats page. I would be happy to work from the data that's already available there, except that (like for T88403 ) the number for December 2014 is still missing.

So I have instead calculated the number from the "List of Wikipedias" page on Meta (which is also the source for the public stats maintained on the Foundation's home page ).

684596 = 34 127 177 ( ) - 33 442 581 (
...and I could do the same for the trend data (comparison with Q1, and Q2 2013/14).

The data on Meta, in turn, is based on @Dzahn's , which I understand is polling the APIs of each wiki directly.

yes, has a "grand total" section at the bottom.

it fetches the numbers from the api of each wikipedia and then simply adds them up. note how there is a difference between "total" and "good". What is considered "good" is a Mediawiki thing.

It is the same thing as "pages" and "content pages" on

imho that is reliable, unless Special:Statistics itself has a bug i don't see why it would be different from parsing dumps (which seems more error prone)

(Adding Dario in case he wants to weigh in on the reliability of the two different data sources. For now, I'm OK with using Daniel's data via the version history of the Meta page.)
