Grants:IdeaLab/Measure number of active editors
What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating?
Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
Numbers of active editors over time.
Describe your idea. How might it be implemented?
There are active editor statistics already for some of the Wikimedia Projects. More is needed. See:
Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project?
If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
More subcategories here:
How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions?
After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
Many more people will see the need to keep and retain editors. And most importantly, not to dismiss their demands, requests, and suggestions.
Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?
Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
Help compile the statistics and charts. Pass on the stats to those who can post them via charts, etc..
