Template:DYK talk/Views

View statistics are available starting from 10 December 2007.


The {{DYK talk}} template and the page WP:DYKSTATS record the number of page views an article got during the day it was on the Main Page for Did you know and the day before. These numbers should not be taken as hard evidence for or against the quality of a hook or the editor who wrote it; they are simply there for record-keeping. A large number of factors, which are outside editors' control, may affect how many hits an article gets; some of these factors include the time of day it is shown, what else is on the main page, and random variation. Likewise, most hooks are edited by numerous volunteers before they reach the same page, so the number of hits a given hook receives does not necessarily imply success or failure on the part of the editor who nominated it.
