Analytics capacity at WMF is growing. I suggest filing a Bugzilla feature request (aka
bug) to capture and distribute image requests similar to article view counts, see
In the longer term adding ip-geo lookup would be awesome but that might require different
infrastructure. Also ad hoc querying mined data would be neat. WMF most likely will look
into HADOOP more, but focus and timing are still tbd.

I wanted to share this link:
about Europeana and the meeting they're having in The Haag.

Moreover, today I added "Statistics" as
an Open Issue in our results:
Could you elaborate a bit more on what kind of
statistics you would like? We can do a lot already, but the most important one is not
possible directly: Number of image views, we have to fall back to the number of views of
the articles the images are in. This is a major point for GLAM statistics.
I was wondering if we could ask to the
Foundation, instead of a grant,
some work-time of Erik Zachte to set up a central/federal tool for
statistics in Commons.
He is probably the best person for that, and a tool ad hoc could serve
many participant countries.
Of course Erik is the best person, but Erik is being
flooded with all kind of requests so he barely has the time to do his actual work :-(
I see only one solution: We need to clone Erik.
(Actually, i'm thinking that asking work-time
of an employee instead
of "mere" money
could be an efficient idea to get things done: we could talk about
this to Sj, and then the Board of Trustees could discuss about it.)
While we work
on cloning Erik, maybe some of the other WMF stats guys has time to help out? We do need
clear specifications on what kind of statistics we want.
Still hoping to participate,
