Do you track new users or any measurements that indicate user gains/losses? A single year’s data wouldn’t be meaningful but trends over time might be.

Yes, definitely. Discourse tracks some things (although it’s gains — it doesn’t have a report specifically on people who have left). We’re up quite a bit year over year. (I posted the details in The Lounge (see Trust levels on Ask Fedora (from newbie to super-hero!)) as a kind of easter egg for the site regulars, but it’s not really a secret. Here’s the summary:

  1. Page views from anonymous + logged in users is for the last three months of each year has almost exactly doubled . (And that ratio holds true for both logged in and anonymous).
  2. Signups are up 12%, and new contributors — first posters, not just new accounts — up 6%.
  3. New topics up 40%
  4. Number of posts (that’s topics and replies) up 54% (nice!)
  5. The daily logged-in users to monthly-logged-in users is up slightly — this is a value that we’d expect to be lower than for many sites because of the Q&A nature, so 16% seems good to me even though the guidance is 30%.
  6. Daily Engaged users up 37% — and an average of 10 people a day.

… but I’ll leave the charts and exact numbers in the Lounge. :classic_smiley:

For Fedora overall, we’re trying to do similar things, but it’s kind of a work in progress right now. (See Fedora in 2025: what do we want, and how will we get there? - Fedora Discussion if you’re interested!)

(Also — welcome!)

Thanks! Congrats to the mods, staff, contributors, and users for supporting a helpful and healthy/growing site.

Greg.
