Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
Contributor retention is an important topic for any community project.

Why and how Wikipedia editors stay or leave is continuously debated; when polled, there are as many theories as there are respondents.

Leaving qualitative (the "why") research aside, this presentation focuses on the quantitative ("how much"), aspects of editor retention.Statisticaly speaking, how do edit patterns differ between those who stay and those who go?
