Bug report (flickering diagrams in Chrome / Firefox)[edit]

Hi, I experience a problem with the Pageview analysis tool. I first had the problem when accessing this site The diagram is flickering / vibrating in constant high speed, as if it is constantly reloading. As soon as I check one of the boxes above the diagram, e.g. "Show values" or "logarithmic scale" the site is shown correct, even if I untick the box again. After reloading the site, the problem appears again. I use Google Chrome (Version 61.0.3163.91, 64-Bit) @ Windows 7 SP1. The problem also appears in Mozilla Firefox, but not in Internet Explorer. I use the Pageview analysis tool since years in Mozilla but never had that problem until last week. Note: I installed a new graphic card last week but hadn't any issues on other websites, so I assume this is not an hardware issue. Best regards, --NiTenIchiRyu (talk) 15:45, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

I thought this issue was fixed... guess not :( It's your browser/monitor size that's causing this. My bet is if you reduce the width of the browser window, the flickering will go away. I will try to look into this more, but unfortunately it's not easy as I do not own a Windows device. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 14:49, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. Yes, reducing the browser window's width stopped the flickering. Same with checking a box, etc. Thanks for looking into the issue. Best regards, --NiTenIchiRyu (talk) 15:37, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Passing variables by _GET and giving values out of a "human" range. Example: pass to "latest" 250000.[edit]

Hi. Taken for example a link like If you pass a value to "latest" var, out of tolerance for analyisis, eg "250000", page slows terribly down until it breaks showing blank body. Variables on the server-side should be filtered. On the contrary, imho system risks performance issues.

We can enforce that the "latest" value not exceed the max range (since July 1, 2015). I'll look into this MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 14:47, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Bug report[edit]

The statistics graphs do not work with French articles, as above with the IP address. 2A01:CB14:1E0:9900:71E0:45F7:707E:E979 12:40, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Are you also using IE 11? Does it work in another browser or device? Does it work for projects other than French Wikipedia (e.g. [1])? MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 14:46, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal (WMF):. Yes I use IE11 (with windows 8). No, it does not work for the English Wikipedia. In fact, it's weird, I saw it work once in French a few days ago, and that's all. 2A01:CB14:1E0:9900:C5AB:ED6C:7EDD:CC0A 08:30, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

Error question[edit]

Hi there - wondering if anyone can help me. When I did a query for subpages using massviews, I got the following message for several of the pages: "Error querying Pageviews API - Not found." Here is the permalink for the query. We recently moved pages from a namespace to the article namespace. I'm wondering if that might have something to do with the error. Thanks! --EGalvez (WMF) (talk) 17:46, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

@EGalvez (WMF): It looks like maybe you need to update the page to link to the new locations and not to the redirects. This is because redirects are not followed. E.g. instead of linking to Talk:Learning and Evaluation/Learning modules/1Edits link to Talk:Learning and Evaluation/Archive/Learning modules. Note that pageviews are also counted for the redirects themselves. Here you're not getting any numbers probably because the data hasn't populated yet, or not one has actually viewed those redirects yet. There's some more info in the FAQ. Hope this helps!

@MusikAnimal (WMF): Thanks for that info - that answers my question! --EGalvez (WMF) (talk) 18:31, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

problem in mass view[edit]

I got stuck with mass view including subcategories, if the interconnection between categories produces too many datasets (in my case more than 15,000 pages). Is it possible to exclude some subcategories? in my case the cathegory for astronomy includes earth, but then earth is of course interconnected to a very wide field of countries and people. If I could exclude a subcategory it would help. Kipala (talk) 10:44, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

"Unique editors" column[edit]

In my opinion, this long title (and too wide column) could be shorten to simply Editors, which itself is clear enough. Russian translation Уникальные редакторы is not good, and is too bulky; Редакторы would be quite sufficient.
