Hi MediaWiki API mailing list!
I have a question about how the pageview metrics for Wikimedia commons
images accumulate– are they the total view count of that image anywhere, or
just when embedded in commons?
I'm working with WikiLovesAfrica on a project to calculate how many times
each image has been viewed over a period of time, and I've been prototyping
data collection using the following endpoint (with the mwviews.api
My assumption is that since commons images are hosted from the commons, the
returned value will be the total view count of that image, wherever it is
being embedded, including all wikis. Is that correct?
If it's not the across-wiki count, is there a way to get that across-wiki
All the best,
