This is the talk page for user West.andrew.g. Should you need to contact me in a more private manner, it is not hard to find my email address on my professional homepage. Though I am usually a good talk page watcher, sometimes professional deadlines and conference travel may slightly delay the process. If you are not a regular here, I will generally post talkback templates to your user page. If you are a regular, I operate on the assumption you've watchlisted this page. Thanks!

STiki leaderboard[edit]

Hello! Category:Wikipedia contribution leaderboards was renamed to Category:Lists of Wikipedians by contribution, per this discussion. Would you please update your wikicode for Wikipedia:STiki/leaderboard so that you no longer add the old category—e.g. here and here? Thanks, -- Black Falcon (talk) 03:43, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Final stats for 2017?[edit]

Hi Andrew! When can we expect a final update on the Top 5000 stats for 2017 as a whole? Not much should have changed over a couple days, but it would be nicer to deliver exact view counts to our readers when we push out the Top 50 report at WP:2017. Thanks in advance, and a happy year start! — JFG talk 23:44, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

@JFG: They are posted now as per the talk page. West.andrew.g (talk) 04:03, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Fantastic, many thanks! — JFG talk 14:07, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for this. I've added "Based on the raw data from West.andrew.g and prepared with commentary by: ..." at Wikipedia:Annual Top 50 Report. We couldn't do it without you!  SchreiberBike | ⌨  19:38, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Promotion machine[edit]

The year end report has been published at Wikipedia:Annual Top 50 Report. Many thanks for supplying the data upon which it is based - compiling the report would have been a literal impossibility without it. Now that it is published, we need to begin publicising it. In the past, you have mentioned emailing various internet outlets regarding the list. Do you have any informal list of such publications so that we can begin this progress. Thanks in advance.

@Stormy clouds: Basically any popular Internet publication that has online "tip submission" or an email address to drop off suggestions. When doing the submitting, it might be helpful to have a couple sentences summary (call out the most interesting points). NYTimes, WSJ, WashPo, The Atlantic, Gizmodo, Slashdot, etc. etc. etc. We're obviously aiming to get lucky with some of the larger publications, but submission en masse like this is pretty quick and easy.
