Okay then, let me ask how do you intend to measure "start them editing"? Raw
edit counts? Over what period of time? Will what namespace matter?
Frankly I'm not as interested in getting new people *started* editing as I
am I in *keeping* them editing. Many new editors get frustrated because they
don't understand basic rules like proper sourcing and citation. Many are not
good at reading our written rules - that's why I was excited to see those
tutorial videos. I really think they can bridge the gap for the majority of
people who don't do well with just RTFM. That's why I say that at least a
link to those videos should be on *every* version of that landing page.
