page access stats[edit]

The stats function from Special pages still includes statistics about pages accessed. I suspect this is not functional. Most of the newly created Wikipedias have all the statistics related to accessed pages glued to zero, and even the english wikipedia has fallen from somewhere over 50 views per edit to around 30 views per edit. I question whether views of pages are relevant anyhow, now that there are numerous other sites offering Read-Only access to Wikipedia content, and we don't track how many folks access those. Could we edit the Statistics entry on MediaWiki to reflect the increasing irrelevance of the stat (that is remove it entirely)? -- Jussi-Ville Heiskanen 00:59, Dec 12, 2003 (UTC)

Heh, after freshly editing scores and scores and scores of MediaWiki-namespace files on the Finnish Wikipedia, I know full well where it is. The question is whether we should edit it. -- Jussi-Ville Heiskanen 01:18, Dec 12, 2003 (UTC)
Will future generations forgive us if we get it wrong? (gasp) Yes, please do. :) --Brion 01:28, 12 Dec 2003 (UTC)

Inter-language links[edit]

I think it is a good idea to add interwikis here as well..can someone add [[ar:خاص:احصاءات]]?--The Joke النكتة‎ 01:58, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Add some internal links please[edit]

{{mediawikiedit}}

I'd like some internal links to be added to the text in the Special:Statistics page. Namely, I would like:

" This number excludes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages for Wikipedia administration. Including these, we have 14,025,995 pages. "

to be replaced with:

" This number excludes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages for Wikipedia administration. Including these, we have 14,025,995 pages. "

- except keep the code behind the number, of course. If anyone could do that, then that would be very much appreciated. It Is Me Here (talk) 09:05, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to flag this up again as although MediaWiki:Sitestatstext looks good, Special:Statistics does not seem to have changed at all. It Is Me Here (talk) 19:49, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
Works for me. Try purging your cache. Soxπed93(blag) 22:58, 17 August 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I think I've just realised why this is. I raised a similar issue here. I've recently changed my language from en to en-gb, and that changed my "This image is at Commons" template until they changed it; it's probably the same here. Thus, if you could also update the en-gb version of Special:Statistics, that would be very much appreciated. It Is Me Here (talk) 09:58, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
