Determine number of logged-in editors using each skin on a subset of wikis
Open, HighPublic

Description

Background

We would like to re-run the analysis from T180860: Re-run active editors skin statistics, which looks at the number of users for each skin among logged-in editors. We would like to see what number of logged-in editors on enwiki have opted into the new Vector 2022 skin and compare that to the usage of other skins, for individual wikis

Acceptance criteria

Repeat analysis from T316884, T325193: Determine number of logged-in editors using each skin for the list of wikis below

Methodology

The non-default skin status is pulled from user_properties schema for each specific wiki. Additionally, we consider the global preference, which can override the skin setting on a local wiki. The global skin preference is pulled from the global_preferences schema in the centralauth database.

Both skin preference and global preference reflect the status as of the data collection date, which is April 15, 2024.

Editors are pulled from wmf.mediawiki_history schema. We focus on the non-bot users who have made a minimum of 1/5/60 content edits on a specific wiki between 2023-04-01 and 2024-03-31.

Please note that none of the three editor groups mentioned here are identical to the active editors group that we use for measuring core product metrics. The product core metric for active editors is defined as the number of registered users who have made at least 5 content edits across all projects in the given month. (ref: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Product/Data_glossary). For this analysis, edits are counted exclusively for the specific wiki.
