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!

WP:5000 hasn't updated[edit]

Anything wrong? igordebraga 20:55, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

@Igordebraga: I was trying to get a head start on the year-end stats by doing some of those huge computations. I paused the nightly WP:5000 process so the database wouldn't freak out. I think I forgot to re-enable. I'll confirm my error and restart when I can reach that network tonight. West.andrew.g (talk) 14:55, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

I think there's a bug in your algorithm this week[edit]

The numbers aren't matching up to the pageviews link for each individual article. Serendipodous 10:05, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

@Serendipodous: This week's report came out on schedule, Dec. 8. The version that appeared on Dec. 11 was the result of re-processing towards end-of-year totals. I forgot to tell it not to push out a report. I've restored the correct version. West.andrew.g (talk) 14:10, 11 December 2019 (UTC)
I figured something like that was going on. Thanks for all your work. It will be fun to see the year-end total. Serendipodous 14:44, 11 December 2019 (UTC)

list from the list[edit]

Hi, if it is only possible, asking for your help to generate the list of articles from English Wikipedia's top 5000 that don't have Ukrainian articles. I need just a list without any additional data. I know that petscan can help but I'm not sure how. Thank you! --Anntinomy (talk) 17:41, 12 January 2020 (UTC)

@Anntinomy: I've never really worked with other languages or related API functions (assuming they exist?). Maybe you could put something on the 'petscan' talk page? West.andrew.g (talk) 23:37, 12 January 2020 (UTC)
