Error with Mediaviews Analysis (on Wikimedia Commons)? edit

Hi there! I hope you are doing well. I noticed that you are one of the three programmers that developed the Pageview Analysis tool. So recently Mediaviews Analysis on Wikimedia Commons keeps showing the error message: "Error querying Media requests API - Not Found" for several old files (files uploaded > 1 day). Is there any ongoing improvement to this tool? Thanks. Đại Việt quốc (talk) 13:20, 3 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Đại Việt quốc It's likely the same as phab:T347899 which is an issue upstream with the pageviews API. Does the file names have parentheses, spaces, or a dash in them? If so, that's the issue. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. MusikAnimal talk 05:07, 4 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi! Thanks for replying. So the filename has parentheses and diacritics in them, spaces were fine though. This never happened before, was there any modifications done to the code of the tool? Đại Việt quốc (talk) 01:01, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
There have been no recent updates to Mediaviews, no. If you're saying this worked before, it sounds like a regression in the pageviews API. At any rate, the right people are now aware of it so it should be fixed in due time. MusikAnimal talk 19:18, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Question about Mediaview on Commons :) edit

I'm trying to understand where views are coming from on Commons; just a few hundred categories seem to capture most of the top 10k media? across a wide range of daily views. Almost all logos (I get they are embedded) and bodies, from 10M views down to 500/month. And the results seem quite different from wmcloud views (some examples at task T353892)

I'm curious if you have 5 minutes to chat about the methodology sometime + what we could learn about the distribution of users / sessions / potential sources of traffic. Warmly, –SJ talk  01:50, 22 December 2023 (UTC)Reply

Hi! Mediaviews uses the mediarequests per-day API endpoint as provided by the Data Engineering team. There's not much more magic going on under the hood than simply plotting out the data given by the API. I've replied at phab:T353892#9425720 with my findings. Hope this helps.

MusikBot for HeWiki abuse-log? edit

Could you please add HeWiki to MusikBot as an abuse-log supported project?

<MusikBot> '' is an invalid project or is currently unsupported.

It will be very helpful.

Wikimedians for Sustainable Development - December 2023 Newsletter edit

This is our twenty-seventh newsletter, a sort of year-in-review for 2023.

Dear Wikimedians for Sustainable Development,

As we bid farewell to 2023, we reflect on a year that has been an uneven year for our user group. While the journey has been marked by some truly inspiring events, most of our efforts have been largely uncoordinated and the user group hasn't been the support it could have been. Yet, there's a glimmer of hope and a world of potential for 2024.

Highlights of 2023:

Newsletters Galore
We kicked off the year with zeal, sharing updates and inspiration through four newsletters. The number of things happening in the movement is astounding, but we need to rethink the format of the newsletter going into the next year.
Growing Strong
The Wikimedians for Sustainable Development family welcomed 33 new members in 2023. Your passion and dedication continue to inspire us, and we look forward to nurturing this community spirit in the year ahead.
Wikimania Talks
Our voices echoed far and wide at Wikimania, where several members of our community took the virtual stage to share insights and ideas about everything from Wikipedians-in-Residence's to open data. Your contributions showcased our commitment to sustainable development on a global scale.
Content Creation Magic
Throughout the year, our extended community demonstrated incredible dedication to expanding the knowledge base on Wikipedia. Countless hours were spent creating and curating content that aligns with our mission, contributing to a more sustainable digital ecosystem.
Campaigning hard
We saw a large variety of campaigns, from writing challenges to editathons. The willingness to experiment with new formats and partners, as well as learning from past efforts, shows great promise for the future.

Acknowledging Challenges:

While we celebrate these achievements, we acknowledge that 2023 presented its fair share of challenges. A lack of global coordination reminded us that the road to sustainable development is not always linear. However, it is precisely these challenges that fuel our determination to work together more cohesively in the coming year and proof that the user group is needed.

Hopeful Anticipation for 2024:

As we turn the page to 2024, let's carry forward the lessons learned and the successes celebrated. We are optimistic that, with renewed energy and a collective commitment, we will overcome obstacles and create an even more impactful and connected Wikimedians for Sustainable Development community.

Here's to a year of collaboration, growth, and making a lasting impact on the world through our shared passion for sustainability. Together, we can turn challenges into opportunities and pave the way for a brighter future.

Wishing you all a joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Warm regards, User:Ainali, User:Daniel Mietchen

PS. We have started writing our yearly report, please add your activities to it.

short global search Oauth edit

Hi. The Oauth for "global search" is getting very short again. I am having to login daily, and have had to do it twice today within six hours. It had been longer some time ago, and I am not understanding why we have it such a low value for this tool. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:32, 25 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

I'm not sure what this could be, as I haven't changed anything recently. My guess is Global Search is seeing more usage. I cleared the cache and restarted, and I saw my login stuck for something like ~20 hours, but I wasn't running any queries. Anyway, thanks for phab:T350521. I'll look into it soon.
