Aren't there statistcs collected on wikipedia servers itself? This would be
more useful and reliable.
Not at this time. At our traffic level, web server logs are too large to handle
comfortably without a dedicated infrastructure, and we've been forced to simply
disable them until something easier to handle gets set up.
Is that "keep recording but ignore them", or disable in the sense of
turn off logging totally? Just curious...
