You are talking about the Wikimedia Foundation while I was talking about
Wikipedians. I certainly "do this" for my own amusement, not to satisfy.

has some additional information. By default, the rectangles are sized
according to the number of articles in the category and coloured by the
median number of requests per article in the category. So a very big
rectangle with a cold colour indicates there are many articles under it
that nobody reads, while small rectangles with a warm colour indicate
categories with few articles that draw a lot of traffic. If you set the
colour to "Anzahl" and the size to "(inv) Anzahl Artikel", the smallest
category will be in the left top and the colours get warmer towards the
bottom right corner. The third dropdown specifies the layout algorithm.
