Per Woodwalker. Metrics we could develop include:
- Crudely measuring things like user tags, word to cite ratios, stability, and the like.
- Reporting user feedback.
- Setting standards for articles (newly created | baseline quality | good | featured) and measuring time taken and progression rates between these.
These aren't bad by themselves. But I'm not aware of any way to calculate useful metrics for genuine quality aside from those things.
