Hi Melody,

I'm cc-ing our public list which is the best place to ask questions like this.

So, the unique devices and pageviews numbers on the vital signs dashboard are fetched from our public APIs.  They don't allow bulk download.  To get bulk numbers, you can:

* download everything from our public dumps [1] where you'll find pageviews by article or by project [2] and unique device numbers by project [3]
* ask one of our analysts to crunch numbers (in this case, the reading team would be the relevant one to ask)
* use our internal cluster to crunch numbers yourself (I can help show you around)

One important thing to keep in mind:  You can aggregate pageviews by language or project, but you can't do that for unique devices.  Because the same devices might be used to visit many sites and there's no way to deduplicate that.  We're working on counting global unique devices so we have those numbers as well, though Tilman from reading has some interesting work on that too.

Hey Dan and Mikhail,

I'm working on a map of the Wikimedia universe that will show the relative size of entities under the Wikimedia umbrella (Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikinews, etc.) grouped by language, articles contributed and then pageviews and/or unique devices.

Is there a way to acquire everything at once, and download it into a csv? Or say "Show all?" 

I'm happy to say more! Thanks so much for your help/expertise in this area in advance (and if there's someone else I should reach out to, please let me know who that might be!)
