Admins recently received this message:

Hullo! For every wiki at Wikia, we generate statistics that track the number of new editors, the number of articles, and various other information important to the life-cycle of a wiki. These stats are much more detailed than the in-built MediaWiki statistics page found at Special:Statistics.

As Wikia has grown we have tried to improve our statistics package to our users more robust data. As part of our latest update, each wiki has received a special page where any logged in user can view detailed statistical information about their wiki. In addition, a number of the statistics have had their methods of calculation updated to be more accurate. We hope this will aid users in deciding where to focus their efforts.

The new Wikia statistics pages can be found at Special:WikiaStats on each wiki. (Previously the information could be found on In addition, there will soon be a central WikiaStats page which allows you to look up any wiki's stats, at Special:WikiaStats on Central Wikia.

You can find out more about the new stats page at Help:WikiaStats on Wikia Help. If you have any feedback, please leave it on this Central Wikia forum thread. This message has gone out to all admins - please do announce to your users if you wish.
