I would ask wikia to please give us our traffic numbers back. And then compare them to pre-warning days. If they are so far down that it is obvious that the warning page was a mistake, please then remove the warning page and free this site at least that much. That page is just stupid, and Jimbo Wales isn't making wikipedia put up a warning page. Numbers please.

I can give an admin access, and they can pass on more info -- sannse@fandom (talk) 21:22, January 15, 2013 (UTC)
Good, thanks. Romartus or Chief should have a good look around. Aleister Let our people go!
I have been begging for the traffic numbers for nearly two years. PLEAAAAAAASE give us our traffice numbers. Pretty pretty pleaaaaaaaaase!!!!!!!!!! --ShabiDOO 00:37, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
I'm happy to have a look if sannse is able to let me in to the wikia numbers vault. I assume the numbers are stored in a vault, that's where I'd keep them. --ChiefjusticeGameCube 06:43, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
Yep, it's a vault. A big one that sits in the middle of the office. Which is a bit annoying really, because my desk is supposed to be there and I'm fed up of all the people standing around it trying to remember what the damn combination is.
Oh well, we can always use Quantcast instead. Chief, please can you make an account there, and email me to confirm the address you used. Ta -- sannse@fandom (talk) 21:10, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
Done. --ChiefjusticeGameCube 21:47, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Traffic numbers

I've had a look at the traffic numbers, as far as I can see there was absolutely no appreciable impact on our traffic numbers. The warning was introduced back in May where we had approx 60,000 people visiting the site, there is no change to this until mid-June where traffic drops down to the region of 40,000 where it has remained ever since, with a dip over the Christmas period to around 30,000. Indeed the beginning of 2012 was one of the busiest periods for the site on record with 219,000 people visiting the wiki on February 1st 2012. At present we average 420 thousand visitors per month in the US, 978 thousand per month globally. Following the split and the forking there has been no appreciable change in traffic either.

I don't think the content warning has had anything to do with a decrease since June, they go a whole month before steadily declining to 40,000 over the course of June and July.

As far as I can see numbers have remained fairly consistent, in January 2011 we had 50,000 visits per day, this January it has hovered around 40,000. If anyone wants anything more specific by all means ask. --ChiefjusticeGameCube 08:06, January 17, 2013 (UTC)

By people visiting that means unique visitors? p.s. thanks --ShabiDOO 08:08, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
When was the pink and kitteny version of the content warning added? If that was around the time of the drop, then it might be a sign that a simple and clear notice is less confusing and more likely to get people to click though (which would be my guess) -- sannse@fandom (talk) 19:19, January 17, 2013 (UTC)
A one-fifth to one-third drop is pretty significant. Good question, Sannse, if the drop-off can be traced to that specific event then that should be discussed. Thanks for looking Chief. Those are fairly good numbers, especially with little to no publicity (have we ever had a major media outlet do a story on us?). With a good publicity campaign in terms of attracting feature writers from major newspapers, magazines, and on-line sites, these could increase several fold (seriously). Aleister lopg 20:52 17-1-'13
