Tracking participation in WikiProjects


Metrics to track for new editors who are invited to WikiProject Medicina.

data point description notes
user name the name of the user
user id the id of the user
user registration datetime when the user created an account
invite datetime the date and time that the invitation was sent
user editcount at invite date how many edits the user had made at the time they were invited this is not necessary, but is much easier collect it from the user_editcount column in the user table at the time you send the invitation than to try to calculate it later.
first revision to WikiProject Medicina article revision id of the edit the user made that caused them to be automatically invited this will be useful later for answering questions like What Medicine articles do new users edit? and Do new editors go back and edit the same Medicine articles after they join the project?
