Subject: [Analytics] Introducing statistics for media files
To: A mailing list for the Analytics Team at WMF and everybody who has an interest in Wikipedia and analytics. <>

Hi everybody,

Just in time for the holidays, we're announcing the addition of Media Requests to our metrics catalog. Over the last few months we've been working on a dataset offering request numbers for every single image, audio, video and document in the Wiki universe, since 2015.

This means we have 3 new metrics available in the Analytics Query Service:
Media requests is, in terms of absolute numbers, a huge dataset, so the per file and top metrics are still being loaded with data all the way to 2015. We expect this loading to finish in mid January.

You can read more about this in Wikitech. As usual if you have any questions about the dataset or the new metrics please send them our way here on the list or via Phabricator.

Happy holidays!
Francisco + the A team
