The MediaWiki Stakeholders' User Group wants to improve MediaWiki and advocates the needs of MediaWiki users outside Wikimedia Foundation-supported projects.

But who is using MediaWiki? In an effort to answer this question the MediaWiki Stakeholders’ Group organized a survey during the summer of 2015 and asked people using MediaWiki to respond. The result is a sampling of over 100 responses from people using MediaWiki around the world. The results were interesting. Folks from all sorts of communities and industries use MediaWiki - from organizations like NASA, THE LGBT History Project, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and more.

We even discovered an interesting trend in download of MediaWiki from China.

Combined with some statistics we were able to obtain with help from individuals a the WMF, and the results of the survey we have completed our MediaWiki Usage Report for 2015. This report provides insight into the various ways MediaWiki is being used - How people upgrade, what extensions are their 'must have's", what they enjoy about the software, their concerns, and more.

Combined with existing collaboration around request features and responses from one particular survey question, "What would you like to see most improved in MediaWiki the software?" we created a priorities 'wishlist' of MediaWiki features.
