Repeated observations are grayed
Page Requests
1: Due to server problems counts from squid logs for December 2009 - March 2010 are too low,
    estimated underreporting 10%-25%. Counts for April - July 2010 have been patched..
2: August : Mobile traffic (401M): 3.0% of total traffic (13367M)
    Trend data for mobile will be added when more history is available.
3: Many projects show peak traffic late 2009: see chart
4: Page requests are now normalized to 30 days (Jan*30/31, Feb*30/28, Mar*30/31, etc)
Site Rank
5: 5th position will be stable for long time: differences with those ranked 4th and 6th are considerable.
Commons Files
6: Tiff uploads increased 5-fold in July 2010, 25-fold in a year.
New Articles Per Day
7: Peak in April and May by massive activity on Aromanian and Waray-Waray Wp's, each by single user.
    In May 20% of all new articles were created on these two small wikis (April 7%, June 11%)
(Very) Active Editors
8: The 6% drop in active editors for all Wikipias in June was relatively large,
    but from a wider perspective still within normal bandwidth, largest drop was in June 2006.
    There might be a seasonal component in fluctuations.
9: Bug fix: in earlier RC editions editors from Commons (6k active editors) were counted double.
    This has been fixed for all months in this RC.
B = billion, M = million, k = thousand
