Edit Peaks in April & May

We have peak number of edits in April and May every year. Any reason for that? Meg Ireland 14:15, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Maybe Eduzendium activities? Otherwise, no big idea (and remember, "lies, damn lies and statistics" :)) Aleksander Stos 14:30, 3 September 2009 (UTC)

Any chance of more recent progress in time?

It appears they end in October 2008. Howard C. Berkowitz 18:24, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

October 2008, indeed. Short answer is, well, yes, I should try it. A longer story is that at some point article listings in the categories on the wiki became quite incomplete. This resulted in inconsistencies in stats so that I had to stop. Now, I've just checked and it seems that the listings agree with article counts (so it should work).

It certainly would be reasonable to show a "data loss" in the graphs. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:09, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
Now it seems OK and there is no more data loss. Just uploaded a new checklisted articles breakdown and articles by workgroup; for other graphs I have to update a couple of functions to parse the updated design of category pages and dumps... Aleksander Stos 06:52, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Wot? Wat!

Sending a quick ‘hello’ out to all of you who wanted a weekend write-a-thon. Also, a nudge, push, and a shove to all those who haven’t made it out in a while. This Sunday, 10th January, is your Big Chance. Party theme is ‘stubs’. Now, what could be easier? Write about anything you want! (At least come on over and say ‘hi’—we’ve all been much too quiet lately and I rather miss everybody.) Aleta Curry 20:56, 7 January 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for your long-time contributions on CZ's statistics. We are all looking forward to some point in the future when the line graph goes up exponentially. (Chunbum Park 22:51, 15 October 2011 (UTC))

Thank you, Aleksander

Aleksander: Thank you for your consistent efforts to keep us quantitatively informed about how Citizendium is doing, in your amazing article/page, CZ:Statistics.

We cannot expect to improve our productivity as a free source of knowledge without having quantitative indexes of productivity trends. CZ:Statistics is invaluable. —Anthony.Sebastian 03:43, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Just a little script, but nice to know it's useful. Aleksander Stos 16:57, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Nomination for the Management Council

You have been nominated for a seat on the Management Council in the July-August Special Election. The nominator was myself. To accept or decline this nomination, please visit the Nominations page by midnight UTC on July 27th. You may write an election statement for each if you wish (linked from the Nominations page).

The Management Council seat expires on either June 30th, 2014, or June 30th, 2015 (the successful candidate with fewest voting receiving the shorter term). In the event that Referendum 1 is passed, all seats will expire on June 30th, 2014. Thanks! John Stephenson 17:20, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the nomination but I guess I'd be unable to handle this... Aleksander Stos 07:59, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
I don't see why not. You've been working behind the scenes here for years and we are currently moving towards a new technical solution, so your input would be valued. John Stephenson 11:43, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, it's all about CPU time, the ultimate limited ressource there (my lag is quite large and growing)  :( Aleksander Stos 14:27, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

CZ activity page

Following this discussion, this page may be of interest to you. Perhaps it can become a base for presenting statistics about CZ. John Stephenson 15:47, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
