Thanks! The most interesting datum I've noticed so far is the rate of
active editor (5+ edits/month) retention among new contributors after six
months, which is about 0.4%.
That (along with the easy-to-measure and already known sheer quanities of
photos generated) seems to me to be the most robust number to use in
evaluating WLM (and comparable) funding requests. 0.4% may be considered
worthwhile or not enough, depending on local contexts, so I'm not drawing a
universal conclusion from it, just noting it.
(just thinking out loud here.)
