- Workshops ranged from 1 to 24 hours, and the average workshop was 4 hours long.
Event length was reported for 45 workshops (32%) included in this report. Workshop length ranged from 1.0 to 24.0 hours and averaged 4.0 hours. As the graph below shows, workshops were fairly evenly distributed between 1-2 (27%), 3-4 (24%), 5-6 (24%), and over 6 hour windows (24%).
Most workshops lasted between 3 and 6 hours. For this chart, categories were rounded to the nearest full hour. (Eg, an event that was 2.5 hours long falls in the 3-4 hour range while an event that was 2.4 hours falls in the 1-2 hour range).
- Participant counts of the 77% of editing workshops that reported attendance data (108 workshops) ranged from 3 to 2,500 and averaged 18.
The participant counts were obtained for 77% of workshops included in this report (108 workshops). Number of participants ranged from 3 to 2,500 and averaged 18. In these workshops, there were 97 new users (1.7% of participants) and 182 (3.2%) existing users. Of the existing users, 2.8% (161 participants) were existing active users. Many reported workshops did not include usernames, so the user type could not be determined for 5,380 (95.1%) of participants.

Input hours, participants, and new users
High organizers hours input tends to be associated with more participants. Furthermore, there is a positive relationship between the number of new users and organizer hours, suggesting that either new users take more time to organize or that new users are more likely to attend workshops that take more time to organize.
