Hi Jaime.
Your inline replying format highly confuses me, but I tried to 
reconstruct what you meant to say and I believe it's what below.

I know what an "active editor" is, you'll see in the history that I 
contributed to the section you linked. I asked about the "rate of active 
editor retention" as Asaf called it, or... "Six-month follow-up Active 
second quarter of retention follow-up" (??) as mentioned in the page.
Apart from the confusing terminology, you'll note that it doesn't match 
with the (draft?) definition 
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Surviving_new_editor> even 
with non-standard n=1, m=15, t_2=90 days and t_1 < 0 unless you 
arbitrarily pose T = end of September. You may want to align definitions 
a bit.

If you mean 
it doesn't contain any definition for the metric.
