Summary Reports for all Wikimedia Wikis

These weeks I am performing long overdue maintenance on Wikistats. This includes fixing bugs (e.g. Wikibooks en Wikiversity reports were broken for many months). This also includes automation, removing manual steps from the production process. I am also making good a long standing promise to publish summaries for all Wikimedia wikis.

These summaries were originally introduced for the monthly India Report Card, with content and layout suggestions from Wikimedia researcher Mani Pande. Hopefully they serve a wide audience. Hopefully they help to quickly assess fundamentals for any Wikimedia wiki, without getting avalanched by too many details from unwieldy tables.

Where to find these summaries

There are sets of summaries, also known as report cards, per project: Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikiquote, Wikiversity, Wikisource and Other Projects.

For Wikipedia there are also sets of summaries per region: Africa, America’s, Asia, Europe, India, Oceania, and also for Artificial Languages.

Finally for every wiki there is also a new ‘Summary’ link in the project sitemaps: Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikiquote, Wikiversity, Wikisource and Other Projects.

I am open to suggestions what to include further into these summaries. Yet their very purpose is to offer a quick at a glance overview, so this puts some restraints on which information to add.

Update 27 Sep: I added extra charts and metrics for Commons.
