The fundraising analytics team is working with the rest of the fundraising teams this quarter to put together our yearly fundraising report for FY1920. [here is last year's report for reference].
We are reaching out to you as we have two questions regarding stats that we'd highly appreciate your team's input on:
#1. In the opening paragraph of the report, we'd like to reference the number of edits made every second on Wikipedia, or another good metric that captures Wikipedia's growth in real time. Our fundraising copywriter used 1.9 edits per second, which was taken from this page, but I am not sure this is really the number we should be using, and I wouldn't want to send people to this static page. Could you please advise on what the best number would be to use here and include the source? Given that this report may generate some traffic, I want to be mindful of where we send people and see if there are any numbers that your team may want to highlight, from this page or somewhere else.
#2. In the last part of the opening paragraph, Sam Lien from comms suggested we add some pageview data, which I think could be a great idea. Do you have a recommendation for a number to highlight and the source?
I am really sorry to ask you for a quick turnaround on this, as I imagine you have a lot on your plate. That said, we are hoping to wrap up the edits in our doc by the end of the week, to move into the production phase of the report. Would you be able to have a look and advice on this before the end of the week you think?
