1) I'm confused: first you ask about community
initiatives then you list
activities by chapters and the like. "Community initiative" makes me think
of edit drives, custom tools and scripts, processes, guidelines,
Sorry for the confusion. I'm open to hearing about any non-WMF activity,
but I assumed that people would be most knowledgeable
about initiatives that came from chapters or other parts of the community.
2) Are you interested in last year or all our
Let's say since about 2011, with more recent being of primary interest.
3) Is it really impossible to look for the impact on
(assuming you're speaking of eiting activity) and then ask what caused the
impact? How much big but indetected/undetectable impact is there? (There
must be contrasting forces for that.) Are you interested in impact that
can't be even seen in statistics?
We're also looking at which projects are growing, so as you say, looking at
the stats and then asking what caused it. If you are aware of a editor
recruitment or retention activity that measured, I'd also be interested in
hearing about that, even if it didn't necessarily make some kind of visible
jump in the total active editors of a project.
P.S. Thanks to the folks who reached out off-list with examples.
