Greetings, everyone!

As promised at the end of the community review period, the weekly reports would become monthly reports. Below are the stats from August 2022.

For the month of August, the Forum had 280 active users, of which 80% (or 224 users) were non-WMF. “Active users” as defined by Discourse is “all users visited and read at least one topic in the given time interval.”

The graph below compares the # of users from June onwards (June is the first full month we had data for).

  • New Users: new account registrations
  • Daily Engaged Users: number of users who have posted or reacted to a post during that time
  • New Contributors: users who posted for the first time
