Thanks a lot for pulling up the data so fast, Frank.
So, it appears that, Tamil Wiki has a similar percentage as the Hindi Wiki.
Just wanted a minor clarification: does this take the automatically-created
global accounts into account?
"That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."

> Hi All,
> I just gathered the data for the Tamil Wikipedia:
> * In August 2010, 807 people created a new user account on the Tamil

> * Out of these 807 new user accounts, 82 have made an edit within the
> first 10 days after account creation (about 10%).
> * Between August 1 and 15, 30 new accounts have been used for editing
