WoGue Stats

I’ll go fast on this to save your time -and my time :)

The first day we had 24 visits, the second 26 and by the end of first week we managed ~400 visits.


We have a bit more than ~100.000 page views by approximately ~50000 visitors which ~30000 of them are unique and it seems that we grow every day!

We are realistic and we know that we haven’t the best Open Source page out there, but the way I see it we have the best topic …we do Gnome and Gnome only :)

Thank you for your support!

And one small note: When we review a Theme or anything from an indie developer/author is nice if you like it to push it in G+ or Twitter of Facebook.  By doing this, you don’t support us but the people who spend their free time to contribute to Open Source. Just encourage them to continue!


  We can't watch comments unless G+ provides an API or if you send a notification, e.g +World Of Gnome
     Sometimes is better to place your questions on GNOME Community
