This is really great data, esp considering our baseline for 1 ns0 edit within 24 hours is ~25%.  This type of data helps push our understanding of how users come into the system.

When Dario gets back, we should take a look at these anon account creators to see what their  UMAPI stats are -- I'm expecting their edits in 24 hours would be very high, like maybe 90%.

This is a good opportunity for me to play around with uploading cohorts and running metrics on UMAPI, if I can. 

In the meantime, I took a look at edit counts as stored in the enwiki user table, so across all namespaces. So far 65% of the signups via the anonymous editor notice have made an edit, and 7% have crossed the 5+ threshold, again all namespaces. 

This slightly overestimates compared to what we get from UMAPI, because that is limited to just article edits. It also slightly underestimates, because I haven't given an entire 24 hours after the last signup, like we usually do to give a normalized minimum timespan for every account.
