If not, what structure do you think would better organize Wikistats metrics and content?
Topic on Talk:Wikistats 2.0 Design Project/RequestforFeedback/Round1/Site architecture
Do Contributing, Reading, and Content work as top level categories?
Yes, sounds (almost) good. Contributing and Reading might have some interactions however, e.g. I may want to compare # of edits and # of pageviews
Works for me.
Works for me, it makes a lot of sense.
@Milimetric (WMF) - from a WMF teams point of view, I need think about what my goals are/what I would need to come to the stats page for. I typically come here to get a general sense of population statistics about the projects. One of the things that is often missing, for example, is number of editors by country or region. I am not sure if/how that fits into your design?
Another thing I could think about that I would really like to know that is important for our work: How many users are administrators or other special user types? This information is useful for having a high-level understanding of curation/governance side of the projects in terms of community engagement. Each project has a different list of user types as well. If this is data is too granular for stats.wikimedia.org, perhaps we might think of a separate dataset to get this data.
@EGalvez (WMF), the WMF is not one of the primary audiences, to make sure Wikistats keeps its community focus. Editors by country is a sensitive metric because used in combination with other data we provide it could allow de-anonymization attacks.
I think these top level categories are perfectly sensible.
For me, the distinction between "Content" and "Contributing" was not clear initially. It now makes sense, though.
