Hi! My "Mounth counts" chart has one problem: 2011-08 is so exceptional by the huge total of edits that it messes all the other months of all the other years. They look like nothing. How can I hide 2011-08 so my chart can work normally?

There is phab:T177658 which is about introducing a logarithmic scale to the charts. That would help here, too. In the meantime, since you primarily edited the mainspace during the month of 2011-08, you can hide the mainspace from the view and the bars for the other namespaces will be more visible. To do this, use the × icon when hovering over the rows in the namespace table.

Thanks for the tip! It is a really good one.

It would be much simpler to implement, and have much more satisfactory results, if each year count/month count had an "X" too to be hidden, and the graph recalculated on-time, like on the Namespace Table.

The logarithmic scale probably would be more difficult to implement, as it is already tooking some years to be replied to on Phabricator.

What do you think?

Logarithmic scale shouldn't be too difficult. We have a similar option in the Pageviews Analysis tool, which uses the same charting library. I just didn't see a demand for it other than the sole request back in 2017, so I never gave it much thought. You asking for it gives it a bit more priority :)

Adding × links for each month would actually be considerably harder. That I don't think I'd be able to implement anytime soon, I'm afraid.
