We need to clearly define and represent the words we are using in our metrics.
These words and definitions should ultimately be represented here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk_pages_project/Glossary
This task is about agreeing upon the initial set of definitions being used in tasks like: T233888
=== Definitions ===
|//Number// | //Term// | //Definition// |//Defined: Y/N//|
| 1. | **Junior contributors** | Contributors who have made <100 cumulative contributions to Wikipedia | ✅ Yes
| 2. | **Participating on talk pages** | Successfully contributed to any Wikipedia talk page that results in a diff | ✅ Yes |
| 3. | **Talk pages** | For the purposes of calculating our baseline metrics, we will include all [16 Wikipedia talk page namespaces](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Namespace). | ✅ Yes |
| 4. | **Retention** | Contributors who come back to make an edit in any one of Wikipedia's [16 talk page namespaces](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Namespace) within 30 days of the 24 hours following their first edit. See: T234046#5578128 |✅ |
| 5. |**Productive contributions to article pages**| For purposes of calculating baselines: edits to Wikipedia articles that are not reverted | ✅ Yes |
| 6. | **Article pages** | Namespace 0 or "Main/Article" namespace| ✅ Yes |
|7. | ~~**Talk page features**~~| We are removing this definition and instead using the "Participating on talk pages" as part of our definition of retention. See: T233888 |✅ Yes |
|8. | **Contributions to Wikipedia**| | |
| 9. | **Contribution to talk page**| making any kind of change that results in a diff. | |
| 10. | **Senior contributors**| | |
=== "Done" ===
- [ ] The terms listed in "Definitions" above have been defined
- [ ] The "Definitions" written above are published on MediaWiki: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk_pages_project/Glossary
The retention period will start 24 hours after a contributor has been "activated."
Where "activated" / "activation" is defined as an edit to any of Wikipedia's 16 talk page namespaces.
