First congrats for the overall success of WLM 2012, and also for the awesome
stats at http://toolserver.org/~emijrp/wlm/stats.php


Here are some extra stats about uploaders, with focus on new vs experienced

These data are provisional, while we vet input further (last chart seems to
indicate there is still some anomaly), see at '==>'


This chart shows how the three WLM event lead to increasingly large peaks in
new editors (on any project).



Same chart with logarithmic  y axis. This shows that numbers of old hands
contributing to WLM is non-negligible.



For completeness sake, similar linear and log charts where only WLM 2012 is
taken into account. 




Following bar chart shows experienced vs new uploaders to each WLM event.



Last chart is similar as first chart, now with remaining Commons
contributors to namespace 6 plotted as second line.

Surprisingly there is still a big leap in non WLM editors in Sep 2012 



==> (hmmm, seems too coincidental, are we missing WML participants ?, in
other words should some users still move from red to blue line ?)


Also updated is monthly Wikistats report:


Note that there was no time after closure of month to produce and process
full archive dump. That will happen in coming week, and  overall article
counts and too much lesser degree editor activity counts will drop a few
percent, but it should not affect uploader counts.  (reason: for stub dump
we cannot apply all official criteria for proper articles, as page content
is not available: no check for internal or category link).


Also noteworthy: you can see which people are most active on the mailing
list: http://www.infodisiac.com/Wikipedia/ScanMail/WikiLovesMonuments.html




Some more details: 


Each year I get a list of user names of people who contribute to WLM. 

In 2010 the list contained 201 names, in 2011 there were 5462 names and this
year 14994. 

That is 25 less than the 15019 mentioned on


I found edits for 14737 out of the list of 14994 that was provided, that may
need further scrutiny (maybe some unicode names got mixed up) 



If we restrict to valid submissions:

> time sql commonswiki_p "SELECT DISTINCT user_name FROM
u_platonides_wlm_p.wlm2012 JOIN user ON (user_id=wlm_author) WHERE
wlm_source = 'commons' AND wlm_status='Participating';" >
