The Analytics Dashboard is a feature available on all Gamepedia wikis that provides analytics information for that wiki. The Dashboard is accessible to administrators and Wiki Guardians through the Special:Analytics page, which is also listed in Special pages.

Why Analytics for Admins?

The information we gather through our various systems can give a lot of insight into how each wiki is being used. We feel that information such as Top Pages and Most Viewed Images can help our admins and top editors choose the best ways to focus their efforts on content creation as well as learn more about the types of users who are accessing the wiki for content.

This feature was very highly requested in the 2017 Gamepedia Editor Survey, and so we decided to focus our efforts on creating it for the community.

Data Usage Policy and Examples

All of the data provided in the Analytics Dashboard is considered to be private and should not be widely shared or distributed. It is shared as a courtesy to help our admins and editors gain insight into their individual wikis. Therefore, we ask that you consider how you share this data with any non-administrators. It is our intent that data can and should be shared within communities, but generally in a manner that maintains some level of care.
