> 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%.
> Is "active editor retention" a metric defined somewhere?

>> >>Yes -

>>Thank you for asking, and mentioning that it is not linked in the
section.  I will reference that link there.  I would like to point out that
the overview page to the set of reports does contain a lot of important
information about how things were defined and are reported in each programs
evaluation report.

> 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.
> >>>>I find the return rate for the next event even more interesting!

>>>>Yes, it is important to remember that there are many other potential
outcomes that have not been measured and are not included in this first
round of evaluation reporting.
