The Munkapedia Statistical Report is an annual report, released by Munkapedia's administration, documenting stats about the activity of the wiki for community discussion in hopes of establishing long-term trends to better show where there is strength and where there is need for improvement. Our first report was released last year containing a few areas of interest. Over the last year, these areas were expanded to include five new charts, one of which utilizes some of last year's data.
Views & Edits
The first graph shows daily total wiki views and edits from April 1st, 2015 to March 31st, 2016. Views are graphed as the top line while edits are the bottom line. The gradient from red-yellow-green indicates what might be considered poor-average-great for the wiki. The black lines are regression lines to help determine whether views and edits have been increasing or decreasing over the last year. The slopes for these lines are both positive showing that views and edits of wiki pages have increased overall.
The two graphs directly below the main graph show the same information but over different time intervals. Instead of daily points, these look over weeks and months to see longer term trends. Since months are of variable lengths, the data was normalized to a 30 day month as indicated by the green lines. This is done by calculating the average views and edits over the month and multiplying by 30. So if every month had 30 days, the green line is likely what would be seen.
The first new graph for this year is the view multiplier. The multiplier means that views any day from the previous year can be multiplied by the multiplier to get this year's views. So numbers larger than one (the green) mean that the wiki had more views on that day than the previous year, in essence showing growth of the audience. Less than one (the red) tells us the audience has decreased as compared to that day last year.
- During this period, there were 51 days with more than 10,000 daily views.
- December was just shy of a third of a million views.
- There were 123 days in which views doubled or more than doubled from that day the year before.
The final graph from last year shows the total number of main namespace articles as they were created daily. Over the last twelve months, nearly 300 articles have been added to the wiki. As a result, we smashed our 1,000 page goal midway through the year. Even so, article creation has slowed over the last few months.
WAM is a relatively new Wikia ranking system that offers scores, out of 100, to the top 5,000 Wikia wikis as an indication to the wiki's activity, reaction to everyday events (ie. increased editing and viewers due to ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip), and momentum over time. Other rankings list wikis in numerical order, with one being the top, for position relative to all wikis, wikis in a vertical (related group of wikis such as television wikis), and the peak rank. Over the last year, Munkapedia has averaged a WAM score of 85.85, Wikia 587, and Vertical 128 (Peak 57).
Twitter data was planned to be included within last year's report, but data reports stopped unexpectedly. They returned allowing for two additional graphs about Twitter activity, which both show the relationship between tweets and followers as well as impressions and profile visits.
If you have any questions/concerns/inquiries or suggestions in which the wiki might benefit in these and other regards, please feel free to discuss below or add to the wiki's suggestions board. Happy editing!
