You are mistakken 49 is the rank not the number of changes or pages these were ) and there is quite some difference between 9 and over 50.

OK, but your actual statistics is not 50 but over 70,000. Still my comment remains valid: the statistics are not computed all the time continuously but with batches running periodically, so it's normal that it can ignore your most recent edits over the last shortest period. As well, the results depend on the activity of the job queue (which is very active on this wiki even if there's few edits, as the longest jobs are those created for SemanticWiki, some of them running for hours may lock temporarily not just some pages but also the updates of related statistics (which will be deferred). These statistics are not intended to be actualized in real time, they are just estimates. Computing them has a huge cost on the server, so they cannot be refreshed instantly, even if this is based on a live SQL request (which is already costly and quite long to reply for this page, because it has to lookup all existing users to sort them and then extract about 50 of them in each "top list"; the statistics however are quite accurate for least frequent users, but must frequent users are only roughly sorted, especially for the shortest period of 7 days). Note also that the computed statistics do not show the actual period of dates on which they were computed: the period may be off by more time than what you expect, and the "last 7 days" may be 7 days before the last run of statistics offline jobs which may have occured up to 7 days ago (possibly more of the database had long job lists, with some jobs taking several days to complete and deferring other pending Statistics jobs to run that, most probably, have lower priority than Semantic jobs and regular jobs built in MediaWiki).

This statistics page is not certainly the one to consult if you want to get your own personal edit statistics, that you can get using the live Mediawiki API:
For example: https://translatewiki.net/w/api.php?action=query&list=users&usprop=editcount&ususers=Robby
The same for Joe Taras: https://translatewiki.net/w/api.php?action=query&list=users&usprop=editcount&ususers=Joetaras (note: you must use the actual username, like in your user page, not the displayed username in your signature, and URL-encode it if needed in the URL) This gives a total on all periods. Computing this over a period is much more complex as it requires scanning your history, so this cannot be done directly with the live API. Doing that on all existing users (just to get the Top 50 lists) is even more complicate and costly.

Ok for me. Usually I've checked my stats and I've seen updated. Maybe there's a lot of traffic. No problem. Thank you for your reply

Dear, I must return on this issue. I've understood the performance is important but, if we can't see the updated information about edit count and other, please remove some functionality from Translatewiki, as follow:

The page SupportedLanguages is unuseful because if I check information about an user the information are not update, as the following image:

User activity detail.png

The page Contribution scores is unuseful because is not update, as the following image:

Contribution scores detail.png

And these widgets

Widget on edit count.png

I'll wait for your response.

Have a nice day

It's hard in your examples to know what you want to exhibit or what is the problem. I cannot reply further because I don't know the exact details about how these statistics are computed or if they are even correlated and indicate the same thing. Only the site owner/maintainer can help explain what they really display, and probably the interface is not precise enough or confusive (notably it acks an indicator about the date fo the last database snapshot on which they were computed, so it's hard to determine on which data they are based; even your images will not help more) I suggest you consider eah of the 3 images as separate cases and then try to explain each one. But for me all these are just estimates based on some unspecified snapshot at unknown dates, and there's no link at all in these 3 fragments to a page explaining what is their source and how they are maintained.

Hi, I don't know how these features can be computed or which sources have been used.

I try to explain better:

The first image (SupportedLanguage): In the detail, for each user you have the "current" (????) edit count, and when the last edit has been done. (The image tells 63 days ago, but every day I add translations).

The second image (Contribution socres): In the detail, you have a list of all users contributions about the last 7 days, last 30 days and overall. You can see empty the first and the second grid, the third is not update.

The third image (Widget in user page): In the detail, you have current contribution score (the same of the Contribution scores page in the third grid), the current edits count (new pages + edit existing pages), the current edits (only changes in the existing pages).

Until 2 months ago these information were always updated. I don't dispute if the team has stopped this counter, but, after this stop, IMHO, these information become unuseful, so can be deleted from the site.

I don't know who can reply instead of you, but I suppose if an active user wants to know some information, the team can reply to clarify its position.

Thank you for your reply, have a nice day
