 On svwp there has over the years been 45 individuals who have each made
 more then 38000 edits.
 Of these 45, 44 are still active, only one has  left (in 2009) making
 97,7 still around. For the users with less then 38 000 edits, only
 about
 6 out of 10 is still active.

 Is this a global valid number, that when you have made 38000 edits you
 are fully addicted to Wikipedia (until death do us part)?

2015-03-05 Thread Anders Wennersten
I deeply apologize. It is not easy with wordings when you are non native 
English. I meant to use a word meaning member of an order if now Order 
means the same in English as in Swedish. Or member in a collective group 
which share some common insights/experiences.


Of the 45 I mention 6 are female (13%) (yes of course we know each other 
so well). And of course these are just as active, respected etc as the men

It will not be possible in the same way if you are 1144, but probably for

The fraternity  thinking has now for us also been extended into that no

On the English language Wikipedia we definitely have a phenomenon that
editors with high edit counts will stay until a major event drives them
away.

But the the threshold may not be 38,000 edits, we have 1,444 editor
accounts that have achieved that, and that may no longer be enough to
commit you to the site.

The 14 editors with 500,000 or more edits are all currently active, some
are still among the most active editors on the site. Though the active
definition on [[:en:WP:EDITS]] is merely one or more edits in the last 30
days.

Of the 215 most active editors, 32 are inactive for various reasons and 7
have anonymised themselves on the list of most active editors (though they
may be active). So 80-85% of our most active editors are still around.
Possibly more when you allow for the fact that at least one of those 32 has
closed that account and now edits from another one.

Sadly our admins have not been so likely to stay with us, only 579 are
still active as admins, though of the 1500 or so former admins quite a few
still edit.

Of course the length of tenure for both groups is likely to be unusual.
The vast majority of en wiki admins were appointed more than 7 years ago
and it takes time to accumulate a really high edit count. Though we have
fewer editors with over 100,000 edits than we have active admins, at
current rates that will change in 2016, in recent months we are seeing more
editors  do their 100,000th edit than become admins. I suspect one of our
problems is that we have fewer ways for newish editors to feel they have
become an established member of the community. To some extent GLAM, the
chapters and the education program do this, and of course the good and
Featured article processes. But we shouldn't be surprised that fewer people
are staying on after their 100th or 1000th edit, as that is the stage in
their wiki career where they are likely to think that they will never
become a full member of the community.

Of these 45, 44 are still active, only one has  left (in 2009) making 
97,7 still around. For the users with less then 38 000 edits, only 
about 6 out of 10 is still active.


Is this a global valid number, that when you have made 38000 edits you 
are fully addicted to Wikipedia (until death do us part)?

Hoi,
I hope not.. If it were I am a basket case. Hmmm not Wikipedia ... does
Wikidata count ? What number of edits would be sufficient ??
Thanks,

uy!  I have 77617. Can I excuse myself by saying that much of that is combined 
with my work as a teacher using WP with students?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Ciritical level for addiction to Wikipedia

2015-03-04 Thread Pine W
Pinging Analytics to ask about editor longevity data (:

My understanding is that newbies (= 10 edits) are more likely to disappear
early in their careers than they were 5 years ago, but that editors that
have been active for years are likely to remain active for years.

It would be interesting, as part of the strategic plan process, to work on
improving editor retention. I believe that this may be related to our
treatment and training of newcomers (onboarding, civility, NPP, Teahouse,
etc.) in addition to external changes in our environment (e.g. the rise of
Facebook).
