Wednesday, April 2nd[edit]

I got myself an avulsion injury of the ulnar aspect carpal yesterday, so I'm going to try to minimize typing.

I've been gathering revert rates for newcomers first edits. I'm planning to compare 1st edits made with GS to those made outside of GS. To do this, I gathered all edits that newcomers made in their first 24h and write a python script to grab the first revision (flagged GS edits) and checked whether it was reverted.

Here's some preliminary results.
