RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $4200Goal: $6000

RationalWiki:Pages by popularity

Shortcut:

These logs are very imperfect, but will give you a rough idea what's up with this.

The number is the number of pageviews coming in via the /wiki form of the URL. (Other forms are not counted, e.g. diffs, in-MediaWiki redirections, etc. So some pages with a popular redirect might need to be hand-merged if you cared a lot about the count.)

  • [1] (4,941,847 bytes)
  • [2] (6,917,870 bytes)
  • [3] (5,714,253 bytes)

Raw pagehit logs[edit]

These are the month's log from squid1 concatenated with the log from squid2 (which is why the timestamp appears to restart half way through). Note: These links automatically download the file.

  • [4] (326,711,908 bytes, expands to 6,594,965,830 bytes)
  • [5] (353,310,816 bytes, expands to 7,131,549,181 bytes)
  • [6] (358,071,400 bytes, expands to 7,235,593,627 bytes)

How this was made[edit]

The shell script is:

#!/bin/bash
grep -oP "wiki\/.*" $1 | grep -v "wiki\/.*\/" | grep -v "\?" | grep -o "\/.*" | sed -e 's/%20/_/g' | sed -e "s/%27/'/g" | sed -e 's/%28/(/g' | sed -e 's/%29/)/g' | sed -e 's/%3F/?/g' | sort | uniq -c| sort -nr

Here's the first thirty lines of the pagehits log from 201510.pagehits.xz:

The aim of the script is to get only requests starting http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/ and not any other hits. The script probably needs more than a few tweaks.

If anyone feels up to setting up the code from Wikimedia Toolforge - Pageviews for RW purposes, we have pagehits logs back to late 2012 on hand.
