Pageviews analysis of articles on Sappho poemsEdit

I was idly curious on how many views the Sappho articles were getting so I punched them in here: [1] No major surprises but I still found the table interesting to look at. Haukur (talk) 10:50, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Yes, I don't think there's anything that surprising there: Ode to Aphrodite and Sappho 31 are, as expected, decidedly the most popular.
What is interesting is this version of the chart: you can clearly see the spike in pageviews for Frr. 1 and 31 from August-September 2017, coinciding with Sappho being listed as a GA and appearing on the front page. (If you remove those two and Sappho 2, which was only created around the time Sappho hit GA, you can see similar spikes for Brothers Poem, Sappho 16 and Sappho 44 become clear.) If you look at the individual page data for Ode to Aphrodite and Sappho 31, you can also clearly see that those spikes aren't temporary: there is a distinct before/after difference. (The same is true for Sappho herself: since she hit GA, she's averaged something over 6000 more views-per-month.)

Brothers PoemEdit

Congratulations on the promotion! Deserved recognition for some very thorough work. Haukur (talk) 11:28, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

@Haukurth: Thanks very much! My next Sappho project is likely to be bringing Ode to Aphrodite to GA, but I think there's enough material on Tithonus poem that with a bit of work that could be a fairly respectable featured article some day... And of course gallons of scholarly ink have been spilt on Sappho 31, to the point that bringing that to FA is intimidating more from the sheer volume of sources I would have to work through! Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 11:52, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
I love the Ode to Aphrodite and fondly remember writing an essay on it back in undergrad. It would be a great subject for an FA. Haukur (talk) 11:59, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

@SchroCat: You are most welcome – I always enjoy seeing your (and Tim riley's!) work cross my watchlist, and Grigson is a fine successor to your previous English cookery writer FACs. Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 11:51, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Barnstar of Greece
Even though I have mostly left Wikipedia and I am no longer writing articles, I still pop over here now and then to see what is going on. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate and admire all the excellent work you have done and continue to do for Wikipedia. Your articles about ancient Greece and Rome are among the best Wikipedia has. I was saddened when I saw you had left and I am so glad you have decided to come back. —Katolophyromai (talk) 00:40, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

@Katolophyromai: Thank you! I am sorry to hear that you have largely left wikipedia. I continue to appreciate your work here, especially to ancient Greek literature – there's plenty more where that came from if you ever feel like making a return! Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 08:23, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

I am still writing obsessively, but I am no longer writing on Wikipedia nearly as much as I used to. Nowadays I mostly write answers on Quora and articles on my personal website. Here is a link to my Quora profile and here is a link to my personal website. As I said, I still log on to Wikipedia every so often to see what is going on and occasionally make minor edits and changes. I am more active than you were while you were gone.
I am actually rather dissatisfied with the article "ancient Greek literature" since that was the first article I ever worked on that I tried to bring up to GA status and, at the time I was writing it, I did not know how writing articles on Wikipedia worked. Most of the citations in that article I just copied from other articles here on Wikipedia, thinking that was acceptable. If figured that, if they were good enough to support similar statements in other articles, then they were good enough for the article "ancient Greek literature." Obviously that is not acceptable and I was foolish for thinking that it was, but I mostly worked on that article while I was in my junior year of high school and I just did not know any better. Now that I am a sophomore in college, I know better than to do stupid and lazy things like that. The articles "Athena," "Inanna," "Hypatia," and "Aphrodite" were the first ones I wrote that I actually did in the proper way by actually finding all my own sources. The articles I worked on closer to the end of my time on Wikipedia, such as "satyr," "Library of Alexandria," "Epicurus," and "Pythagoras" are all much better in my opinion. —Katolophyromai (talk) 11:33, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
Well, all of us (we hope!) get better at writing wikipedia articles with practice. It may not be up to your standards today, but when you look back at what it looked like before you started editing it, you will realise that you did massively improve ancient Greek literature. Skimming through the articles on Hypatia and Library of Alexandria, they do indeed look like excellent work. Caeciliusinhorto-public (talk) 13:33, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
