Create conversion metrics
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We want to reduce the abandonment rate of our Wikibases (empty+deleted total to 50% of our user base), and understand why this is happening, and thus want to monitor:

Weekly report to Wikibase Cloud team (To find if there are any patterns and see if we should reach out to anyone):

  • Average time to engage (Wiki created -> First action (action=any data created))
  • When do people abandon their Wikibase? Abandon=more than 90 days inactivity. What was the average activity before that? E.g. I created a Wiki, played with it for 1 week, then abandoned it. 90 days later we observe my abandonment of my Wiki. We register the abandon time = 1 week.
  • Average number of active editors per Wiki-> As to understand how community oriented these are and if it's individuals managing/testing things. Active editor=performed an action in the last 30 days)

Note from refinement: Make it a Public API
UPDATE: Ignore - we've decided to make it a report instead of part of the dashboard. Making this kind of data public will be addressed separately.

Fring moved this task from Doing to In Review on the Wikibase Cloud (Kanban board Q3 2023) board.
Fring subscribed. is now deployed which means all wikis will have a first_edited and last_edited property in their WikiLifeCycleEvents. In case such a value is null, it means it has never been edited.

We're imagining that a new endpoint will return something like a CSV; and optionally a JSON representation. That looks like this below:


Note from a chat:
PM would love to have both the calculated stats as well as the raw data
