Please give feedback here on the Version 0.7 offline release. This will help us make things better for Version 0.8. Thanks! Walkerma (talk) 06:47, 23 October 2009 (UTC)


Any news on how this is doing? Dottydotdot (talk) 12:02, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Currently I'm trying to work through >20,000 possible cases of vandalism; this has been very slow because of my "real life" work commitments. That is why I've been working on the same task for several months - pretty much on my own - no one else seems interested in such a tedious task! Starting this weekend, I now have much more time to work on this task, and I expect to (finally!) finish it in less than a month, if I can work on it for a couple of hours each day. Meanwhile, the publisher (who is writing the offline user interface) has made an alpha version available, but the software is very "buggy" - quite a few internal links cause it to crash completely. I have done a pretty thorough test of it, and reported the errors to the publisher. If you'd like to help, please let me know. Walkerma (talk) 19:03, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
I don't know if I'll be able to help but I'm a bit confused about how you remove them-are you removing them from the live Wikipedia or from a dump? Dottydotdot (talk) 19:10, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
From this dump, which is the current online iteration of Version 0.7. Walkerma (talk) 03:22, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Is it available yet?Edit

Has 0.7 been released? If so, how do I download it? Axl ¤ [Talk] 09:37, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Please refer to: Wikipedia talk:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Version 0.7 - should FINALLY be published soon!... Ivan Akira (talk) 11:35, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, should be in the next few days - I'm discussing the official launch date with Linterweb at the moment. Walkerma (talk) 15:28, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
Any update on the release date? Kaldari (talk) 18:59, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
They told me February 1st, but it they were a bit vague about that! I just had an email today, indicating that the Iraq index was fixed. The release version is already unofficially available here. I also heard from the WikiTrust people tonight, they are actively working on a tool to allow us to select unvandalised article versions. Once that works (may be a few months), we'll start work on Version 0.8 soon afterwards, with the expectation that we can produce that release MUCH faster! Walkerma (talk) 06:58, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
The Windows and Linux versions seem OK, but the Mac version had some bugs, so we're still waiting on that before we make the announcement. Walkerma (talk) 06:14, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Pageview statsEdit

After a recent request, I added Version 0.7 to the list of projects to compile monthly pageview stats for. The data is the same used by but the program is different, and includes the aggregate views from all redirects to each page. The stats are at Wikipedia:Version 0.7/Popular pages.

The page will be updated monthly with new data. The edits aren't marked as bot edits, so they will show up in watchlists. You can view more results, request a new project be added to the list, or request a configuration change for this project using the toolserver tool. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know. Thanks! Mr.Z-man 03:32, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Very nice results! Now the new 1.0 bot is live, it'll be interesting to compare data. Thank you, Walkerma (talk) 05:55, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Indexing problemEdit

I have installed Kiwix and I can search without problems. However, when I click on the indexes, nothing happens —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:17, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

OK, I'll mention this to User:Kelson, who handles that. Can you tell us what sort of operating system you're using? BTW, we're preparing Version 0.8 this week, and hope to have a Kiwix version available by October. Thanks, Walkerma (talk) 16:54, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Windows XP. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:46, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Kiwix vs. OkawixEdit

Under what circumstances would I want upload one versus the other? I have Windows 7 if that helps. Marcus Qwertyus 03:35, 15 November 2010 (UTC)


Why The Córvus-Córvǐx is it called "Evolution and intelligent design"??! It should just be "Evolution". ID is mere lies, and should not be in "Natural science".75* 16:39, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

if no-one objects, I will put the ID articles under religion and fix it.75* 17:26, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Popular pages tool updateEdit

As of January, the popular pages tool has moved from the Toolserver to Wikimedia Tool Labs. The code has changed significantly from the Toolserver version, but users should notice few differences. Please take a moment to look over your project's list for any anomalies, such as pages that you expect to see that are missing or pages that seem to have more views than expected. Note that unlike other tools, this tool aggregates all views from redirects, which means it will typically have higher numbers. (For January 2014 specifically, 35 hours of data is missing from the WMF data, which was approximated from other dates. For most articles, this should yield a more accurate number. However, a few articles, like ones featured on the Main Page, may be off).

Web tools, to replace the ones at tools:~alexz/pop, will become available over the next few weeks at toollabs:popularpages. All of the historical data (back to July 2009 for some projects) has been copied over. The tool to view historical data is currently partially available (assessment data and a few projects may not be available at the moment). The tool to add new projects to the bot's list is also available now (editing the configuration of current projects coming soon). Unlike the previous tool, all changes will be effective immediately. OAuth is used to authenticate users, allowing only regular users to make changes to prevent abuse. A visible history of configuration additions and changes is coming soon. Once tools become fully available, their toolserver versions will redirect to Labs.

If you have any questions, want to report any bugs, or there are any features you would like to see that aren't currently available on the Toolserver tools, see the updated FAQ or contact me on my talk page. Mr.Z-bot (talk) (for Mr.Z-man) 05:32, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Popular pages reportEdit

We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)! You're receiving this message because your WikiProject or task force is signed up to receive the popular pages report. Every month, Community Tech bot will post at Wikipedia:Version 0.7/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of Version 0.7.

We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:

  • The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
  • The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
  • The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).

We're grateful to Mr.Z-man for his original Mr.Z-bot, and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of Version 0.7, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at m:User talk:Community Tech bot.

Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:15, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
