Here's something that I'd like to know, updated periodically (once a month? few times a year?):
How many registered editors at the larger Wikipedias are using VisualEditor?
Ways of answering this question might include:
- At en, de, es, and nl: How many currently active editors have opted in via Beta Features? (The cumulative number of people opted in is published, but it includes some people who made one edit in 2013 and have never come back.)
- At each of the top 10 Wikipedias, how many registered editors actually saved an edit in VisualEditor during the last month (or quarter?)?
- What percentage of currently active registered editors at each Wikipedia saved an edit in VisualEditor (Ever? Last quarter? Last month? I think that "last month" might be the most relevant choice for a product that is still in active development.)
- Bonus points: It might also be interesting to sub-divide those overall numbers according to some set of normal categories about user experience, e.g., percentage for new accounts vs percentage for autoconfirmed or admins or people with >1,000 edits.
I'm not looking for hourly or daily metrics, which are available at http://ee-dashboard.wmflabs.org/dashboards/enwiki-metrics I want something that feels more like "X% of editors in this community have used VisualEditor recently enough to know what it's like" or "In the month before ____ happened, 3% of registered editors used it, and in the month afterwards, 4% did."
