Hi all, I wanted to start a conversation on ways we can measure participation and engagement on Discourse with whatever tools or metrics are available to us.
Elsewhere, I made an (unfortunately) biased evaluation of engagement based on metrics immediately available to me (number of threads, number of posters, number of replies). These metrics are helpful, but on their own, they can be biased (e.g. if a specific topic explodes in popularity one month, but all other months are quiet). I wanted to see if other people had ideas on strategies we could use to collect metrics here.
