I Dare Say...

I really wanted for comixpedia.org to make a big splash next year. I really wanted the wiki to be so much bigger than this year. The project is improving in term of coverage and quality. Next year, I want the entire comixpedia.org community to be stronger and better than it ever was. So we can do amazing things, extradoinary things, and accomplish more than our wildest imagination.

The goals for the comixpedia.org community for next year is......

*Reach the 10,000 articles milestone

*Improve the quality of our work to the highest standard possible (Need to define what is the standard and stuff)

*Build a stronger, more active, and more numberous community.

*two hundred good edits per day

That the goal I outlined. It just need to become the community's goal.

Google Hunting for sites Mentioning Comixpedia.org

There are no reliable way to guage awareness of any sites without some reliable traffic statistics. So I resort to Google, one of my favorite software company of all time. During my search, I found some pretty interesting comments.

*Scott McCloud comments on how Comixpedia lived up to their name. You can find his blog right here. You have to scroll down to 10/27 where he mentioned it at the end of the post.

*Another sites which belong to The Ryans webcomic collective seem obsessed with the name Ryans for reason I don't know. Apperantly, they used Comixpedia.org's search engine to find the name of cartoonists with the name of Ryan in it. Here the link to the site. You have to go all the way down to date December 3.

If I find any more interesting comments from the world of webcomics. I will be galdly reporting to you. Of course, there are lot of comments I havn't mentioned I found during my journey. I promise to tell you about it too, but it may never happen.

Statistics Crazy/Introduction

First, we get to the boring introduction, than the goodies meanful contents!

This blog is intended to give you an inside view of Comixpedia.org, or whatever incorrect name you going to give this wiki. Official name of the wiki is actually Comixpedia but no one care....Also, one quickies...It also talk about webcomics.

Now...here come the goodies stuff!

Statistics...I like statistics and number, especially big, exponetional one. It may serve many useful purposes, but for me, it just interesting. I dug up some pretty interesting statistics around comixpedia.org.

Here one of them.
Now, I don't know how do we even get to more than 2,000 pages. 1,065 articles is really nice for such desperately unadversited site. But 347,010 page views? Holy cow.... Are we really that popular? 11,385 page edits was a pretty impressive number. It not surprising, considering we have a quite active community, but some 3000 edits goes to really active adiminstrators like Tedzees and me (Kiba). That a pretty impressive number if you asked me.

Our alexa.com ranking on the other hand, is terriabley depressing. That because we not that much popluar. Our rank is 123,875. There are two HUGE spikes in the ranking chart right here.
I think that was caused by one of our editor visiting the site a lot to cause this.
