Importantly if you collect UserNames at an in-person event you MUST take care to protect that document and information.
Legalese – Three versions of the opt-in language –
Long Form - You can use this as your main opt-in form, or if you chose to use the Medium Form or Short Form and just make sure you keep a copy of the long form accessible (i.e., printed out, projected, or linked) to show participants when requested.
Opt-in at in-person events is required – Usernames suffice
An option to also opt-out at a later date will also be made available within cohort management capabilities that will be built into the tool.
Creating CSV file
A CSV file is simply a Comma Separated Value file that can be made as a text or spreadsheet file and saved in the CSV format
Wiki Metrics accepts Username or UserId and project code specifications:
Frank Schulenburg, meta
JAnstee (WMF), meta
If you do not enter project code in CSV file you must enter project name in the upload cohort screen or system defaults to enwiki

Most Users Do Not Have Underscores In Their Names; If_This_Fails, try replacing underscores with spaces -> If This Fails.
Also, the system will sometimes invalidate a username if there are trailing spaces, please be sure to trim any trailing spaces (i.e. extra spaces in the text field following the username)
