About 'Number of editors who contribute 1 edit per month?'
I'm hoping we're not going that use that number for our next fundraiser ;-)
The more inclusive our numbers are, the less meaningful, bordering on alternative facts.
A person with one edit in any given month is as much an editor as a person who looks at the night sky a few times a year is an astronomer.
We have billions of those on this planet!

Subject: Re: [Analytics] Fwd: follow-up on editors
Funny story: I noticed that Aaron's graph has the 1-month new editor retention on enwiki at about 7%, while I had recently done some queries that put it a little under 4%.
It turns out I made an error in my Unix timestamp math, and I was looking at the 12 hour new editor retention rate. It'll be interesting to see if the ranking of wikis by retention changes significantly when I correct that.
