Hi Andrea, Do you use the education extension to import usernames to WikiMetrics? And what seems to be the issue with WikiMetrics results? Would you please have a look at these learning patterns on using Wikimetris: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikimetrics_learning_patterns And this

Hi Anna, In the long run I think it would be beneficial to move at least some of the content of Outreach into LPL where it would be easier to search. Perhaps you can enlighten me about the purpose of keeping Outreach separate from Meta. I think the idea is that Outreach is easier to navigate for

Hello everyone, As a user of the Education extension, for both Wikipedia Education Program work and non-WEP work, I would recommend using it for other different purposes. I know many people, including me, who used it to track editathon activity, working groups and many other projects. It seems
