Metric decreases... Edit

I'm participating in a challenge and I've noticed more than once that my metric decreases as well as one of my co-challengers. E.g.: from 1500 to 1439. How should I understand this? --VALENTIN NVJ (talk) 12:54, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VALENTIN NVJ: I'm guessing that you mean a decrease in the 'Recent Edits' count from here? If that's the metric you mean, it's because that counts only the number of edits made within the past 7 days, not the total number of edits throughout the event.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:19, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No Sage (Wiki Ed), but here.--VALENTIN NVJ (talk) 19:44, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
VALENTIN NVJ: which metric decreased? --Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:28, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes Sage (Wiki Ed); the number of metric (Number of Modification) often decreases. I can sleep with 1900 contributions and arrive in the morning, it decreases to 1500. that's what I don't understand why? --VALENTIN NVJ (talk) 20:33, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
VALENTIN NVJ: It sounds like you are talking about the 'Recent Edits' column from the Editors Overview, which currently shows 1860 for you. This is the number of edits that the Dashboard has tracked from you within the last 7 days. (If you are talking about a different metric, you can email (sage @ me a screenshot of the metric you mean, and I can look into it further.) --Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:40, 27 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Exactly the "Recent changes" column I was talking about Sage (Wiki Ed). Yesterday I had 1860 but look at today how it still decreased to 1619 instead of advancing. This dashboard also counts for a competition where there will be prizes to win at the end. So this kind of bag may distort the final result. Please see what happens! --VALENTIN NVJ (talk) 16:37, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The 'recent edits' stat is not a good metric to use for a competition; it's not intended to count the total number of edits, it's intended to highlight which users have been most active within the last week.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:49, 28 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi I cannot find the eventbrite/Zoom link for the event Anyone able to send me this? Karen

Why aren't some articles counted? Edit

Hi, I'm creating this dashboard, but it doesn't count two assigned article: id:Gereja Pentakosta Isa Almasih Indonesia Efata Salatiga & id:Gereja Kristen Jawa Salib Putih. I don't know why. I have set the start and end dates and selected two Wikipedias. Edits were made in the period and in the selected Wikipedias, but still the two articles aren't counted. Cahyo (WMID) (talk) 03:33, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cahyo (WMID): thanks for catching this! This was because of some incorrect data due to a bug that I fixed recently. I thought the bug only affected the "recent revisions" list for user, and didn't notice that the incorrect data would also affect statistics and the 'edited articles' list for an Article Scoped Program, so a little more data cleanup is necessary. I've fixed the data for your event, and I'm working on cleaning up the data for other affected events now.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:24, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sage (Wiki Ed): Thank you! Looks great now! Cahyo (WMID) (talk) 03:25, 10 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

#1lb1ref may-june 2021 dashboard Edit

  1. 1lib1ref may-june 2021 dashbooard : the dashboard includes the stats for the wikidata references which is not a part of the the #1lib1ref challenge (if it is, can I get a source please). Is there anyway to get the real numbers (without going to each participant library and clicking on their articles). French speaker here, sorry for the grammar--Scully1181 (talk) 12:39, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Scully1181Reply[reply]
Scully1181: If you want to exclude the references for Wikidata edits, you can download a CSV of all the articles edited for the campaign and calculate it from that. The CSV includes a row for each article edited, including the wiki and count of net references added or removed, so you could filter out all the Wikidata entries and then sum the rest. Use the "Download stats" option here and click "Pages Edited".--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:31, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How do I unenrol from a course Edit

Hey there, I just accidentally joined the Summer of Wikivoyage 2021 Kosovo and Albania program, thinking I would be able to assist new editors. But I realised that is for the new contributors minutes later, and not to track contributions from new editors. How do I unenrol? Thanks!

Delete test Edit

Could someone take the following test from "Miscellanea", so that I can delete the program? Thanks.

Translation and question Edit

Hello, there are categories without translation, the following: "articles I am creating" and "articles I am improving", these categories are not available for translation either. I would also like to ask a question: how do I get the program to automatically add a template on the user page from the novice participant editors? Thanks, --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 22:22, 16 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Felipe da Fonseca: Thanks! I've put fixing those untranslated messages on my list and will get them into the translation system soon. To get the Dashboard to automatically add a template to a user page whenever they join a Dashboard program/event/course, the wiki needs to have automatic edits configured (which is done only for pt.wikipedia, cs.wikipedia, and pt.wikiversity so far).--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 14:51, 30 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Felipe da Fonseca: Those messages are available for translation on now. Thanks again.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 21:56, 9 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding to list of wikis Edit

Hi there, I am trying to organise an edit-a-thon on MicroWiki and I have just discovered this tool. Would it be possible to add the wiki to the list of wikis, so I can track the contributions of the people participating? Mattplaysthedrums (talk) 03:17, 27 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Mattplaysthedrums: I expect that an administrator for would have to install the software. So far as I know, there are no documented precedents of installation outside the Wikimedia platform, so setting this up may not be straightforward. Here is the software
For context, the Wikipedia ecosystem manages itself, and each other wiki elsewhere has separate administration. Blue Rasberry (talk) 14:12, 27 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Mattplaysthedrums: the Dashboard code is built to a significant extent around Wikimedia wikis, as it uses the a Wikipedia account for login and it gets edit data from the Wiki Replicas. Adding support for arbitrary MediaWiki sites would be technically possible, but it would be a a pretty substantial amount of work.--User:Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 14:57, 30 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sage (Wiki Ed): An administrator from MicroWiki took one look at the code for the installation and almost fainted. I don't think that it will be installed anytime soon. Mattplaysthedrums (talk) 03:31, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Programs & Events Dashboard error Edit

Hi, Programs & Events Dashboard is having an internal server error. When will the error be fixed? I need to check my programs. Thank you in advance. Cahyo (WMID) (talk) 07:16, 9 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Programs & Events Dashboard and The stopping of the Wikimedia hashtag search for several days. Edit

Hello everyone

I thought I was the only one but now I see that there are many of us

The first: since August 3, 2021 the page (Wikimedia hashtag search) is no longer disappointing and I can no longer follow the changes.

Second: For a week also the local page (OutreachDashboard campaign) no longer appears at all and there I do not know what to do :.

And long before all this, the campaign tracking pages (OutreachDashboard campaign) and the one (Wikimedia hashtag search) was not consistent in the results because the page (OutreachDashboard campaign) was too far ahead too even when I take into account on refresh days.

Today I do not know what to do and I am stuck because the participants ask me if their contributions are changing.

In the hope of an answer.--Azogbonon (talk) 12:46, 9 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There was configuration problem with the database server, which I just fixed; your event should be available again now. Can you explain more precisely what you mean about it being"too far ahead"? --Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:25, 9 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello dear friend --Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) as I was not a target I did not see your answer quickly, it was just this morning I just saw it and thank you for the speed. Yes the outreachdashboard but the Wikimedia hashtag search one remains blocked on August 3, 2021. for my purposes (too far) it is better to show you the two links and to see the number of images inserted in the articles and to make the comparison of the two maybe I am wrong. outreachdashboard and Wikimedia hashtag search. Thank you for the answer.--Azogbonon (talk) 08:51, 10 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Azogbonon: Thank you for the links. What are you trying to measure with each of these tools? The Dashboard does not directly track the number of images inserted into articles; it focuses on images uploaded to Commons (and whether or not they are used in articles), but won't count images uploaded by other users that get added to articles by the tracked users.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 15:56, 10 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Error accessing Dashboard Edit

Dear Dashboard team, My excellent colleague, W:User:Leedsproject2019, is experiencing difficulty using the Outreach dashboard. When she logs in, she gets a message saying "Leedsproject2019 has not participated in any courses." However, when she or I paste in the URL for her user account ([1] this one) we are able to see her course stats, including both the courses she has participated in as a student and as an instructor. Without being able to log in, she can view her stats but is not able to set up new courses so a speedy resolution would be really helpful for some forthcoming events. Could someone please investigate? Thanks in advance! Zeromonk (talk) 12:52, 23 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Zeromonk, Leedsproject2019: I don't have any immediate ideas on what might be going wrong; I don't think I've seen this bug before. If one or both of you could email me screenshots (to sage @ of what the dashboard home page looks like when you log in and the place you see that 'has not participated' message, that would help me begin trying to figure out what's going on.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:19, 23 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bug report for dashboard Edit

Hi, this is a short bug report

I'm unable to view students who have the question mark in their username as the last character (username ends with a "?"). It seems to be unable to identify that as a legitimate username.

"Not an existing user" Edit

Hi, we have an issue with adding user:Sabkaa to our project. When we try it, there is an error message: "There was an error: Sorry, Sabkaa is not an existing user." Which is obviously fault. Any idea how to solve this? Thanks --Vojtěch Veselý (talk) 14:44, 27 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vojtěch Veselý: The problem here was that this user doesn't have an account on the home wiki for the project (cs.wikipedia), which is where the Dashboard looks for the username. So even though the account existed on en.wikipedia and pl.wikipedia, it couldn't be found when the system queried cs.wikipedia. In trying to figure out what was going on, I worked around the problem so I went ahead and added Sabkaa to the project. I'll make a note to update the error message to explicitly note the wiki, which should hopefully make it more apparent how to fix the problem when someone else runs into it.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:54, 27 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
User:Sage (Wiki Ed): Thanks for the workaround. So in the future will it be possible to add a participant like this one? (The pl.wikipedia was in Tracked wikis, maybe it should help to fix the problem?) --Vojtěch Veselý (talk) 17:45, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Vojtěch Veselý: If the user simply visits the wiki while logged in, their account should autocreate there. — xaosflux Talk 18:51, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Vojtěch Veselý:: As Xaosflux say, making sure the user has an account on the home wiki (by visiting that wiki) is the fix any time this comes up. The error message will now say, specifically, something like "Sabkaa is not an existing user on".--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:14, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why is non-existing domain allowed as a Home wiki? Edit

Hi, I wonder why can I choose non-existing domain, such as "" (the correct is ""), as a Home wiki, when creating a new Program? Sometimes our volunteers type it by mistake and then it looks like it works, but of course it does not collect any data and they are confused. --Vojtěch Veselý (talk) 17:43, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vojtěch Veselý: we had `cz` as possible wiki prefix, which is why it was possible to select that as a home wiki when creating a new program. (I'm removing it soon.) However, I'm not sure why it could have looked like it works, since whenever a new wiki gets entered, the Dashboard will check to make sure that wiki actually exists. When I try to put "" as a wiki for a program, I get an error message (and no new program actually gets created, because of this error). Does that sound like what happened with your volunteers?--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:40, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
User:Sage (Wiki Ed): Thanks for removing it! Maybe I got it wrong and the program never worked. But still the error message probably was not specific enough for them to solve it. Regardless, thanks for the reply. --Vojtěch Veselý (talk) 19:10, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard for Ada Lovelace Day - 24 hour Global Edit-a-thon Edit

It would be great if someone experienced with the Dashboard could check to see if we managed to track edits and new articles on more than just en.wikipedia, Wikidata and uploads to Commons. We had hoped to gather data on the worldwide editathon on 12 October. Wikipedia:Meetup/Ada Lovelace Day gives details of the participating countries. Your help would be appreciated.--Oronsay (talk) 01:40, 14 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oronsay: There's no way to automatically track edits on all wikis, but you've correctly set it up to en.wikipedia, ha.wikipedia, Wikidata, and Multilingual Wikisource (, as opposed to or any other version). You can add any additional wikis you need to track, once you know them, and it should import the edits to those wikis.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:29, 14 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sage (Wiki Ed), thank you for reassuring me about the tracking we'd set up. I do understand that we would have to add the different language wikipedias individually. We were asked to add dag.wikipedia - but I was unable to do so and have no idea why. Can you help with this?--Oronsay (talk) 17:02, 14 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oronsay: Dagani wasn't on the Dashboard's list of languages. I've just added it and deployed the update, so you should be able to add that one now.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:32, 14 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Great news and many thanks, Sage (Wiki Ed). Successfully added.--Oronsay (talk) 17:48, 14 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard not tracking edits again! Edit

Wikidata for Libraries and notable Librarians on Nigeria please this event dashboard has stopped tracking edits of contributors in the past 5days is there any solution to rectify it? plus I have tried downloading the stat to see if the new edits made by participants were recorded but it doesn't seem to display any and the contest is ending soon. Bukky658 (talk), 20:57, 23 Oct 2021. (UTC)

It looks like the worker for processing the most resource-intensive programs stopped a few days ago and didn't automatically restart, so about 40 programs including this one had updates paused. I restarted it yesterday, and it looks like thing are working smoothly again.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:51, 25 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Login via meta instead of en.wp? Edit

Hi Sage (Wiki Ed),

For the context, when I try to login, I'm send to en.wp where I'm affected by a global IP block (as the institution IP is considered to be an open proxy, I appealed the block 2 times but no news yet...). Would it be possible to send people to meta instead of en.wp (the war on open proxy on en.wp seems to target a lot of institutions...).

Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 11:28, 26 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • This sounds like a bad idea, and it wouldn't be about only the project that dashboard is trying to use for global block, it is all projects - metawiki has a special exception so people can do things like appeal global blocks. In general, No open proxies applies everywhere. Notably, regardless of how you "login" - it isn't going to overcome the global block of any contributions to projects either - so just what are you hoping this would accomplish? — xaosflux Talk 11:35, 26 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Technically, yes, it would be possible. It's not high on my priorities to change this because I think it would require more changes that just simple configuration variable switch. Xaosflux, since many users are allowed to edit over proxies on their home wiki with the `IP exempt` right (and without that, just being able to log in to the Dashboard doesn't do anything), maybe it would be relevant? --Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:14, 26 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Sage (Wiki Ed): notably, IP blocks never prevent "logging in" so I'm not exactly sure what the problem is here? — xaosflux Talk 19:21, 26 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • User:Xaosflux: oh, right! I forgot about that. I agree, I don't see any benefit from switching the login location except the minor one of making it a small bit less (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:25, 26 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • @Xaosflux and Sage (Wiki Ed): oh, sorry, I meant global block as "a block on enwp only but affecting all existing accounts using this IP (even my main account with 3 million edit and 17 years old :/)" not a block globally on all wikimedia projects. No open proxies applies everywhere but enwp enforced it way more strongly than any other projects, AFAIK enwp is the only project that considers GLAM networks as open proxy. Also logging through enwp make it looks very English and Wikipedia centered (while most dashboards doesn't concerns either of those), meta seems a less biased option. And for the record, it's been almost 2 month that I tried to get an IP exempt, I'm send from one appeal page to another, it's quite long and complicated (as a seasoned user, I know the drill and I'm persevering but for a newbie this would be a barrier impossible to cross). Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 10:13, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • @VIGNERON en résidence: can you explain what the actual problem you are having is? Event managers can set up their event for any project, and "logon" should not be prevented by blocking, we even provided a special mechanism for account signups on enwiki even when the IP address has exceeded the creation limits. — xaosflux Talk 10:24, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
          • @Xaosflux: the problem is that I can't login on enwp (because I'm affected by the institution network IP block). Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 10:30, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
            • @VIGNERON en résidence: I understand, and there is nothing we can do about that - but is this preventing you from logging on to What happens when you try? — xaosflux Talk 10:47, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
              • @Xaosflux: when I try to login to Dashboard, it sends me to enwp and that's over. Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 10:51, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
                  • @VIGNERON en résidence: what specifically happens - Sage can look in to it more, but will need the exact errors - perhaps you can open a phab ticket with screen shots? — xaosflux Talk 13:54, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
                    • @Xaosflux: as I said, the error comes from enwp, not Outreach. The only thing outreach can do is what I'm suggesting in the title: not using enwp anymore (or not by defulat? or leaving the choice? is it even possible?). The message is the usual blocking message on enwp ("You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia due to a block affecting this IP address.") and not an error, just a very wide definition of "proxy" and an aggressive protection. Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 14:07, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • @VIGNERON en résidence: a local project IP block shouldn't be preventing you from actually logging in to the program and events dashboard, or from using it with other projects - can you open a ticket on the exact steps and exact error messages you are getting that is preventing this? The same problem seems like it would occur even if the logon source was say metawiki when you wanted to use an event on dewiki - metawiki blocks would be in the way. You can report the bug here - let us know the T#####. — xaosflux Talk 15:25, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • @Xaosflux: maybe I'm missing something but I can log on meta (the proof is that I'm writing this message, or any other wikis I tried in the past 2 months) but I can't log on English Wikipedia. English Wikipedia is the only one that block this IP (sse ). Same for every people I'm training in the libraries and museums of the city. Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 15:46, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • @VIGNERON en résidence: my point is that your specific case seems to be only an example of the problem, not the actual problem: Local project specific IP blocks, (including one that could be made here on the meta-wiki) shouldn't be preventing logging on to the dashboard or from using the dashboard on projects where such blocks do not apply. I suspect the OAuth check needs to be reviewed. — xaosflux Talk 15:56, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
        • But even without using the Dashboard, I still can't log on enwp; clearly the problem comes from enwp and that's why I suggested not ussing enwp. I feel we are talking about different things. Anyway, I give up for now, I'll write a SQL query on it will be easier for me. Cheers, VIGNERON en résidence (talk) 16:00, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
          • I'm very very confused now, the only types of blocks that would prevent you from directly logging in to the English Wikipedia, or any other public WMF project, would be emergency network blocks placed by the security response teams; certainly not the local project ip block you mentioned above. — xaosflux Talk 16:58, 2 November 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Non registra le modifiche alle voci degli editori Edit


non riesco a capire perché non registra le modifiche stanno facendo i miei colleghi sulle loro sandbox.

@CapitanoLorca: It's because it's type "Article Scoped Program", which means it will only track contributions to the specific articles or categories that are assigned for it. If you want it to track all edits, you can click 'Edit Details' on the home tab and change the type to 'Generic Course'.

Lexemes not captured Edit

The outreach dashboard don't seem to capture edits on Wikidata lexemes. It only captures it under "recent edits" but not on "characters added"

Currently, only mainspace edits on each wiki contribute to the 'characters added' stats. Fixing this so that (for example) edits to lexemes and properties are reflected in the main statistics for each event is on our roadmap.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:24, 6 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thank you User:Sage (Wiki Ed) for the respond. But can you suggest any other way to measure participants edits as I'm currently conducting a contest that is solely based on participants adding lexemes --Udehb (talk) 20:11, 6 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Udehb: One way would be to download a CSV of all the edits, which you can get from the Home tab of the event by clicking 'Download stats' and then 'Edits data'. You'd need to filter that to get just the Lexeme data and sort it by user, but it might include the information you need to be able to determine the winners.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 20:19, 6 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, There used to be a way to start a project and count retroactively the edits of those users using the 'Schedule data update' button, which I can't find aynmore.

Total edits disappeared Edit

For the Auckland Museum staff and volunteers Dashboard, which I recently updated with additional participants, the data was tracking properly until a few hours ago, and now it is showing no edits at all (the activity log is fine, and same with Commons uploads). Could I check if there is something I can do to remedy this issue? --Prosperosity (talk) 00:01, 17 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Prosperosity: It looks like it's currently set as an Article Scoped Program, but there are no assigned articles or categories that it's set to track. Perhaps it recently got changed to that program type by accident? If you change it to 'Generic course' type, then it should show you all the edits after the next update.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 00:03, 17 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

HI, I translated the article from the english version. I even wrote into the justification : « Ajout de contenu en lien avec la traduction de l'article en anglais. » as one can see in the historics which means : Added content related to the translation of the article into English. Thank you for taking that into account.

I also want to add that this situation seems to be related to the list of the original english titles of the works of the author that should not be translated (because those works do not exist in french).,_Polytechnique_Montr%C3%A9al,_HEC_Montr%C3%A9al/1Bib1Ref_2022_-_UdeM_-_PolyMtl_-_HEC_(janvier-juin_2022)/activity/plagiarism

Marie D Martel: That alert shouldn't be interpreted as saying there is plagiarism, just that the automated system flagged matching text so that someone could check for actual plagiarism.

Olugold I'm not sure what you mean. It currently doesn't show any edits at all for this event, which is why the 'references added' number (and other numbers that are zero) are not displayed, but once there are stats to show, they should show up normally. Is that the issue?--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:33, 14 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Sage (Wiki Ed)! I observed that 'References added' is at 0 and we have added some references. Is it because the pages were created in the Incubator? Thank you. Olugold (talk) 07:43, 10 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Olugold: Yes, it's because the pages on are Incubator. The 'references added' stats are only available for languages that have an ORES article quality model, because we get the reference count for each revision from ORES.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:57, 10 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Manual update feature removed? Edit

Checking to see why this feature was removed? I'm surprised enough people even know how it worked for it to be too resource-heavy. Meanwhile, for anyone creating Dashboard for metric reporting purposes, it's a big hassle to have to wait some number of hours between creating the Dashboard and getting reliable figures. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:17, 19 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I hear you. The manual-update feature basically tied up the same resources that are used to serve web requests (like loading a course or campaign). In some cases, users would run multiple manual updates at once, and in some cases it would be used on a single event that would take minutes or hours to update, which could (and did) bring the whole site down. This is in contrast to the normal update processes, where courses get drawn from a queue and updated using a separate pool of server resources. I expect to add more resources to the system soon to speed up the queue processing, but I'd like to find a way to safely re-enable on-demand updates as well at some point.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:14, 22 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

File mover credited as uploader, not uploader Edit

For a photo contest, I moved a bunch of uploads which had bad filenames. Now that I created a Dashboard for it, I see that I'm listed as the uploader, not just as filemover. Perhaps this is due to the stats not updating yet, but it's been about 4 hours since it gave me a 2-hour estimate for when it would be updated, and now just says "This program has been added to the update queue" without an estimate. (related to the section above). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:21, 19 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard seems frozen Edit


Simon Villeneuve, Vero Marino and I have a dashboard that seems very slow to update:,_Lacogency/Datathon_(25_avril_au_2_mai)/home#

It indicates we had 115 updates until now, but our indicators don't appear to be moving since yesterday afternoon.

The activity tab does show some recent edits although not my own (possibly because I am a facilitator).

The editor tab is clearly off, though. A lot of my edits are missing. And one user who has attended two sessions so far shows zero edits even though we know for sure he did make edits.

We would appreciate someone checking the Dashboard's settings to make sure it is functioning properly. In addition, please let me know whether or facilitators edits aren't included in the indicators. If they're not, I'll demote myself so that I can actively contribute towards the campaign's outcomes. Fjjulien (talk) 18:06, 27 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Online Volunteers enabled Edit

In the Program Details, there is a (new to me) option to enable Online Volunteers, whose edits won't be counted. How exactly does this work? I'm a very active Wikipedian doing my own thing, but when I do outreach, such as 1Lib1Ref projects, I do the activity that is part of the program. Because the dashboard can't tell the difference between my "program" edits and my normal edits, I do not enrol myself as an Editor in an outreach Program, but, in an ideal world, my "program" edits should be counted. I tried enabling Online Volunteers and then enrolling myself as an Editor, but nothing different seemed to happen. It never asked if I was one of those not to be counted or give me a way to turn on/off counting my edits. So I am rather confused as to what this does and how to make it work for me? I note there is no mention of it in the Documentation. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks Kerry Raymond (talk) 02:58, 17 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kerry Raymond: Only edits by users listed on the Editors tab will be counted. The 'Online Volunteer' role is not significantly different from the 'Facilitator' role; it's only useful if you need to have some kind of differentiation between different people in non-Editor roles. Currently, there are two ways that can be used to count an Editor's "program" edits without counting all the other edits they make during the program's time period:
1) Change the type to 'Article Scoped Program' and assign all the articles that you want to count (either individually, or using categories or templates to track sets of articles). For an 'Article Scoped Program', only the assigned articles and categories will count towards the stats.
2) When non-"program" edits get tracked, go to the Articles tab and (as a Facilitator) use the 'Tracked' toggle to untrack all of the articles you don't want to count. After the next update, those will be excluded from the stats.
I have plans to make these features more clear in the interface, eventually.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 23:54, 31 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard showing strange signs when interface language is changed to Hebrew Edit

When I change the interface language to Hebrew all number fields get a "u" sign before and % after. I am using Chrome. Strangely this doesn't happen when I am in incognito mode, also not in Firefox, but does occur in Edge (also in InPrivate mode). It's not a big issue, but sometimes we like to show the dashboard to partners/collaborators and having it in Hebrew is helpful. Keren - WMIL (talk) 07:53, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Keren - WMIL: This was a bug in the Hebrew formatting for numbers that include unit abbreviations. Unlike most of the interface, the stats go through internationalization on the server to turn large numbers into human-friendly abbreviated version (like 1.2M instead of 1200000, for English). Most of the interface is translated in the browser, so it doesn't matter whether you are logged in or not if your language can be detected from teh browser, but the server-side translations only work if you are logged in. That's why it only happened for you in Chrome and not in incognito mode. I've made and deployed what I think is the right fix; I think it should look fine in Hebrew now.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 14:58, 1 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Sage!

The dashboard is not reading accurately according to the total number of edits made by editors even after updating. I raised the concern during the office hour. My Contributions is an example. Since yesterday I have edited over 50 Wikidata items and it's still at 19 even after updating severally. You can see it here. Thank you! Olugold (talk) 23:24, 5 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've figured out what's going on here. The list of articles you've edited, as shown in the link above, is incomplete because it only represents articles you edited from among those shown on the Articles tab for the event, and it only loads 500 articles unless you request more. If you click 'See More' several times on the Articles tab and then navigate back to the display of your work, it will show a larger number. The Dashboard can't handle loading all articles at once for very active events like this one (which has more than 14,000 articles edited). The aggregate stats are still being tabulated correctly, it's just a matter of an incomplete list of 'other articles edited' for individual editors.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:42, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edits Continue to Be Tracked Edit

Edits from users continue to be tracked, long after the program ended. I set up the program page event to end months ago. Is there something else I need to do to stop edits being tracked? Thanks! Jpcohen (talk) 19:02, 18 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jpcohen Hi! Can you provide a link to the program? It should only count edits that happen before the end date, but the 'Activity' tab shows the most recent activity by participants (pulled directly from the wikis, rather than from the Dashboard database) regardless of when it ended; it's intended to let you see which users are still active after an event has ended.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 14:06, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Holding Wikipedia Asian Month on outreachdashboard Edit

Hi @Sage (Wiki Ed),

I am among the facilitators of a local Wikipedia Asian Month (WAM in Bulgarian) and this is the first WAM I participate in and the first time I use the dashboard at the same time. For that reason, first, I'd like to know if a check in meeting is planned and to participate in it, and second, to describe some challenges using the dashboard that make it difficult to manage the campaign. The main one probably is the fact that all the edits editors signed for the campaign make are listed and tracked while we would like to see only the ones related to it (only edits in articles dedicated to or relevant to topics on the scope of the edit-a-thon). Now the program is set to Tracked Namespaces Mainspace (without a passcode) and I am wondering if that setting is the proper one. How Project or Template can be used for example? We have a template for the WAM campaign and we could set a dedicated project - will this help in filtering only the relevant edits? In summary, I'd like to learn and master how to use the dashboard for edit-a-thons specifically (because they are significantly different from assignments-centric projects as the one I have experience with in LMSs) and would appreciate help both from you and from other WAM local-wiki-facilitators with guidelines and WAM-tested tips on how to take the best from the tool so to be as helpful and reliable to my fellow editors and Wikipedia users as possible.

Best, Pelajanela (talk) 04:22, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pelajanela: The main way you can use the Dashboard to track only edits to articles related to your campaign are to change the type to 'Article Scoped Program'. With this setting, only edits made to either assigned pages or tracked categories (or pages with a specified template) will be counted. To set it up this way:
  • Edit Details from the Home tab, and change the program type to 'Article Scoped Program'.
  • On the Articles tab, click 'Assigned Articles' and scroll to the bottom.
  • In the "Tracked Categories, PSID, PagePile id & Templates" section, add the categories and/or templates you want to use to determined which articles are in the scope of the edit-a-thon.
  • Wait until the next data update, which should recalculate the stats based on these new settings.
Let me know if you run into any problems.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 21:40, 4 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Non-English users are confused when requesting or creating a user account Edit

In Europe/Belgium we are nearly always organising non-English edit-a-thons. In addition to that we are a tri-lingual country... When users are creating or requesting a user account, via the Events Dashboard, their account is always created on wp.en, irrespective of the session home wiki. The new user accounts should be created on the "Home Wiki" as indicated in the event on the Programs & Events Dashboard. On the edit-a-thon earlier this week the users received their password by email after having requested their account, but could not login to because of IP blocks on the school premises.

In addition to that the students were logging into wp.en, while they should have been on instead. They needed to go manually to where they were refused to login due to the IP block, because their account was not yet created on the extremely frustrating to organise an edit-a-thon session this way... Can the account creation please be done on the dashboard session home wiki please? English speaking users will not be affected, because their session home wiki would be the English Wikipedia anyway... Geert Van Pamel (WMBE) (talk) 21:29, 25 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Geertivp currently there is a special workaround that allows for account creation via a bot an enwiki, when a project is otherwise blocking users. There is a mechanism for sysops on a wiki to "create" the local account for a global account if they want to. This may get looked in to with Event Center integration (see phab:T302584). — xaosflux Talk 16:06, 27 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Trackind data on 5 years Edit

Hello dashboard team,

I'd like to build a dashboard in order to track the activity of 5 years program (every year, around 75 new users) in cooperation with the TLV University, Science Oriented Youth program. The dashboad actually makes a limit of one year.

How can I achieve this purpose? The program's name is "TLV University, Science Oriented Youth - 2018-2022".

Thank you !

Ruti-WMIL: There are two ways to do this. You can create 5 individual event dashboards for separate years, or you can adjust the dates to longer than one year after you create it. The one-year limit is intended to help keep the system from getting overwhelmed by long-running events with large numbers of highly active editors, as these can put a very large load on the system when it continually recalculates stats covering many thousands of edits. However, if your program is only tracking new editors, it's probably unlikely to cause any performance problems.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:08, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your answer! I also want to know if and how I can add hundreds of editors in the same program. Most of them edited only one article, but I would like to know who of them is going on editing many articles after they published the first article. Thanks!

@Ruti-WMIL If you have the list if usernames and you just want to be able to add them all at once, I'll need to manually disable the maximum user limit for each of your events. You can email me a list of them at and I can do that. Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:46, 17 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Akbarali (talk) 10:11, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is a known limitation of the current system for classifying Wikidata edits; the Dashboard uses edit summaries to determine what changed in a Wikidata edit, and these edit summaries often classify an added reference as something more general like 'changed claim'. This is something I'm hoping to address within the next year; it will make a good internship project.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 20:06, 11 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Glossary of stats terms & new editor count Edit

Dear @Sage (Wiki Ed),

Hope you are well! I have two questions: I was wondering if there is a glossary available for the terms used in the reports for the P&E dashboard (e.g. new editor, new editor retention etc.), and also if I am correct that P&E dashboard measure new accounts register during the indicated event tracking and not in the 14 days before the start of an event? Thank you so much for your kind reply! Best wishes, MichellevL (WMNL) (talk) 11:30, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

We don't have a complete glossary, just a bit of documentation on the FAQ page.
You're correct that 'new editor' count only measures registrations that happen during the activity tracking period of an event. New editor retention is based on a new editor making an edit (to a wiki that the Dashboard is tracking for that user, so generally only to a wiki being tracked for that event, unless the editor is participating in another event on the Dashboard as well) at least 7 days after the end of the event (but typically, only extending up to 30 days afterwards, as that's when the system stops updating an event).

Не дали возможность оспорить удаление Edit

Сегодня утром получила опрос о том, чувствую ли я угрозу безопасности. Я ответила "да", потому что мою статью удалили через полгода после публикации, несмотря на картину известного художника, упоминание с 19 века, историю с часовней, наличие древнего названия, неоднократные мировые чемпионаты по мотокроссу, уникальный природный ландшафт, удалили под предлогом, что мои источники описывают предмет статьи лишь косвенно, а таких источников было 10, хотя это старейшее место города, что и указано в источниках напрямую. Зашла к номинатору на удаление, почитала его созданную свежую статьи про ничего не значащего хоккеиста, не успевшего ничего сделать и завоевать хотя бы одну награду, сыгравшего один единственный матч в соревновании каких-то ничего не значащих команд с одной единственной неавторитетной ссылкой на какой-то хоккейный форум, ужаснулась. Его одна единственная ссылка ведёт на состав команд, где среди прочих двух десятков указана фамилия этого неизвестного хоккеиста. И это вся информация. И его статья никем не подвергается в Википедии обсуждению. Вот такой человек выносил решение. И эта несправедливость очень ранит. Не может удалятор попирать все требования в своей статье, при этом удаляя чужую статью под надуманным предлогом.

Many updates blocked since June 9 Edit

Akwugo, Spyridon Eftychios Kokotos, Olugold, Kerry Raymond: It looks like there was one particular event that was stuck during the update process, which resulted in a 3 day backlog for updates for about half of the active events (the ones that use the 'medium' update queue because they take a medium amount of time to update usually). I reconfigured the update system to let multiple workers handle the 'medium' queue, updates should resume for all those stuck courses within the next few hours.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 17:19, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard is not updating Edit

Hi Sage! Hope you are doing great. The event dashboard for our event did not update after waiting for 3days for update. 3days after, it still did not update. Any idea of what could be the problem? I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks. Olugold (talk) 01:01, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard is not updating Edit

Same problem as above. We have a GLAM partnership and they are not seeing the files they have uploaded to Commons. 07:43, 12 June 2023 (UTC) Kerry Raymond (talk) 07:43, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard is not updating Edit


A few editors (including myself) made recent changes to wikidata but, the system says that the last update was: "3 days ago". Although, I cannot see any error in the corresponding website [5] so far and that's what troubles me. Our dashboard link is [6] I am looking forward to hearing from you about the updates. Thanks in advance! Spyridon Eftychios Kokotos (talk) 14:03, 12 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard is not updating #2 Edit

Hello (again)!

The issue I reported on June 12, 2023, at 14:03 UTC, has been resolved , but the solution didn't last long. Since last night, the dashboard [7] I'm participating in states that the last update of the statistics occurred 16 hours ago, along with the following message: "A new update was expected about 2 hours ago."

I will be waiting for your actions and your response to my message.

Thank you in advance for any actions you might take!

Best regards, Spyridon Eftychios Kokotos (talk) 10:37, 15 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think everything is back on track now; I needed one more manual step to get the queue working smoothly. This particular event is active enough that it got moved to the 'long' queue with other resource-intensive events, so will probably only be getting approximately 1 update per day.

fat Edit

Greetings, The Fante Wikipedia (fat) is currently not included in the list of trackable wikis on the outreach dashboard. The Fante Wikimedians community is actively engaging in campaigns and editing activities. It would be greatly beneficial if this issue could be addressed, as organizers are keen to monitor the participation of contributors. Robertjamal12 ~🔔 05:28, 20 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unable to delete duplicate campaign Edit

Hi Wiki Edu team, hope you can help me out with this: I am trying to delete a duplicate campaign, but I get a notification '"Gendergap WMNL 2023" is not the title of this campaign. The campaign has not been deleted.', though the title of the campaign actually is Gendergap WMNL 2023 (see here). I also tried the slug but that isn't working as well.. Hope you can help me, thanks so much in advance! MichellevL (WMNL) (talk) 11:38, 27 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MichellevL (WMNL) from this search result - what is the exact name of the one you want deleted? (Please ping on reply) — xaosflux Talk 14:05, 27 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Xoasflux thanks for replying, the title is Gendergap WMNL 2023. I have the same problem with another campaign 'TEST Deel je Data Netwerk Oorlogsbronnen'. Please let me know what I can do to fix it, thank you so much for your help! MichellevL (WMNL) (talk) 07:05, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MichellevL (WMNL) I've deleted these. It looks like there may be an encoding bug when you get to the point where you have to type in the name of the campaign to delete it. Workarounds seem to include: (a) select/copy the name from the popup dialog itself; (b) rename the campaign to something simple (it worked for me in basic ascii, no spaces), then delete it. — xaosflux Talk 09:33, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi @Xaosflux thanks for clarifying and the two workarounds, I should be able to manage! MichellevL (WMNL) (talk) 06:34, 1 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Stats seem to disregard the end date Edit

Hi, I have a question about this dashboard: . I'm trying to get statistics for just the day of the editathon, June 17. I had set the "activity tracking" start and end times for a six month period but then I realized this was a mistake and I changed the activity tracking end time to be just a few hours after the start time. The dashboard has since run an update but it's still tracking stuff from long after the editathon. How can I get the dashboard to just show me what happened on June 17? Clayoquot (talk) 18:08, 27 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Clayoquot Is it still showing data based on edits that were not made during the tracking period? The 'Activity' tab will always show recent edits, regardless of the tracking time, but the rest of the stats and information should be based on the updated tracking time period now. If there's something that isn't correct (eg, an Edited Article that wasn't edited during the tracking period), let me know the details and I can look into it further.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:36, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it's good now. Thanks! Clayoquot (talk) 14:16, 6 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Typos in German text Edit

Das Dashboard ruft Bearbeitungsdaten aus WMF-Cloud-Replikat-Datenbanken ab. Manchmal fehlen in diesen Datenbanken die neuesten Bearbeitungen aufgrund von Replikationsverzögerungen (Replace). Wenn dies der Fall ist, werden die fehlenden Bearbeitungen später angezeigt.Ersatz prüfen

  • replace -> replag
  • and a whitespace before the last link Ersatz prüfen

This can be updated on, and would then eventually make its way to the dashboard.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:39, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the link. I fixed the first typo. Did not find the place where to fix the whitespace in between Wikimedia:Wikiedudashboard-metrics.replag info and Wikimedia:Wikiedudashboard-metrics.replag link. best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 09:04, 5 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Missing entry in dashboard Edit

@Sage (Wiki Ed): I have an inconsistency with the outreach dashboard and the listed items. Westlicher Hochplattenkogel (Q119884742) was created >3 days before, but does not show up as new item in the dashboard: It should be matched by and indeed is matched (check csv output). I checked only this one, but now I'm not trusting the overall results any longer. I'm also maintaining and watching the dashboard. Any hint what goes wrong and how to fix it and avoid in the future? best --Christian Philipp (WMAT) (talk) 12:21, 28 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. I will look into this. I haven't done much testing of Article Scoped Programs that use a PSID for scoping; it might be a bug related to that.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 16:48, 3 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thanks, looking forward. --Herzi Pinki (talk) 08:51, 5 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This one is showing up, but because there have been more than 500 articles edited, it doesn't show up until you click 'See More' enough times that all the articles get loaded. By default, only up to 500 articles will be loaded. It is being counted in the stats. (The way the pagination and loading of large sets of articles works can be confusing, especially when combined with Wikidata items where they first render as Q numbers but then get replaced by labels once that data gets queried directly from Wikidata.)
The way I am able to see it is by using your link (with the newness=new filter parameter), then clicking 'See More' twice (which causes that button to disappear, once the full set of articles has been loaded), then searching the page for "Westlicher Hochplattenkogel"; it's currently on the first page of new articles when I do that. Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 20:08, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sage (Wiki Ed): ok, that is plausible, thanks for analysing. The look & feel of this page navigation is strange, IMHO. As a standard there are 5 pages shown, the indication that there might be more, is somewhere else (to the right side). Clicking next will lead me through these 5 pages and then stop. The usual behaviour with such next-button at the end is to stay at the end. But if it is realy the end and not some virtual end due to presentation restrictions. It would be clearer, if there is an ellipses for missing pages and next-button in any case will lead you from page n to page n+1 (if there is one) and keep you at the end, if there is no page n+1. best --Christian Philipp (WMAT) (talk) 18:52, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, it's confusing! We have an update that improves the paging navigation somewhat, which will be live after the next update.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 18:55, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dashboard reset to empty Edit

Hi @Sage (Wiki Ed):, this seems to be urgent. The wikidata dashboard was reset to empty in the last update. No error message. There have been entries since the start of this dashboard, now zero. Can you please make this run again. best --Christian Philipp (WMAT) (talk) 06:00, 17 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's not empty now. I'm not sure what might have gone wrong. I'll poke around and see if I can understand what might have been going on.--Sage (Wiki Ed) (talk) 19:20, 17 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sage (Wiki Ed): Saw that, not empty any more. Kind of hickup? An idea how to catch cases like this: if the number of contribs is set to 0 (after having been /= 0), then this might be caused by failed updates (of course, all contributers could have been removed, etc.) best --Christian Philipp (WMAT) (talk) 07:03, 18 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Campaign dashboard underestimating number of edits (not urgent!) Edit

Hello @Sage (Wiki Ed) et al,

I was wondering if someone could help me? I've been organising multiple programmes, all under the same campaign ( since 2021 and I'm very pleased with our results so far :-) However, the Campaign Dashboard appears to severely underestimate the data, such as the number of edits that have been made and the page views of articles that have been edited, in comparison to the Programme Dashboard.

For example, on the Campaign dashboard @Hat Jul has 68 edits listed, but globally they have made 92 edits across Wiki and Commons. For articles, the one on William Ferrel is listed as the highest number of page views (990) but there are articles in recent programmes that have received thousands of page views. Is there a difference in how the Campaign Dashboard and the Programme Dashboard count these various metrics? It would be fantastic if they were directly comparable, as I would like to use the results to advocate for more Wikimedia activity in my institution. Many thanks in advance for the assistance and have a great weekend when it comes. Drkirstyross (talk) 15:37, 28 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Embed function rejected Edit

Hi! I have been using an iframe to embed stats from this dashboard in a website news item. All of a sudden it won't work, and the error message is " avviste tilkoblingsforsøket" ( rejected your attempt to connect).

Is there a known server side issue that's causing this? Help to understand what's going on would be much appreciated. Elisabeth Carrera (WMNO) (talk) 15:14, 5 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Views not updating properly Edit

Hi Sage! Thanks for all your efforts and prompt responses.

I observed that the event dashboard is not updating views accurately. From the statistics on the dashboard, this item has 0 view but from Xtool it has 5 views. Can anything be done about this because there might be a possibility that other items on the dashboard are not updating in terms of viewership?

Tracking all language WPs? Edit

Hi Wiki Edu team, hope you are able to help me out with the following: for an edit-a-thon we hosted with a group of participants from a diverse background, I would like to track all WP namespaces, because we do not know what language versions of Wikipedia they have been editing specifically. Is there a way I can select them all without having to go through the entire list? Thank you so much! Kind regards MichellevL (WMNL) (talk) 10:12, 17 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Retention statistics Edit

What is the best way to see which new editors continued editing after an editathon? If I look at the Activity tab, it is dominated by the experienced editors who volunteered at the event. Also in what may or may not be a related question, what are the "Activity tracking start" and "Activity tracking end" dates and how do they differ from the "Event start" and "Event end" dates?
