Welcome to the Timelines Wiki!

Introduction

This wiki has a Facebook group where you can check out new timelines and give feedback.

Issa Rice hosts this wiki.

Table of timelines

The "Creation month" refers to the month when the first round of work on a timeline was completed.

The "Number of rows" counts only rows in the "full timeline" section of the page.

The "Total payment" column below counts only task-specific payments. If the timeline was written under a stipend, the actual cost could be higher. Funding information is taken from Vipul Naik's contract work portal.

The "Monthly pageviews" comes from Google Analytics and reports the total pageviews from the past 30 (or possibly 31) days regardless of when a page was created. Once Issa learns how to work the Google Analytics API better, he will probably do something more interesting for this column. These pageviews exclude those from logged in users of the wiki.

The "Monthly pageviews on Wikipedia" only applies to pages that were originally created on Wikipedia. Here the pageviews are calculated from at most 12 months of data (i.e. it is the last min{12, number of months since page creation} months worth of pageviews data) and is normalized to 30 days.

The table was last generated on 2018-02-01.
