Pick Metrics > 4. Threshold

Threshold = Whether editors made a minimum number of edits from the period between registration to the specified threshold hours. Also computes the time it took to reach the threshold in hours.

Number of Edits Minimum number of edits made by new users
Threshold Hours Number of hours selected
Namespaces Number of hours after Survival hours to measure if user is still editing

For each user, the Output file will display:

1 = True
User made a minimum number of edits during the specified threshold time (see below).
0 = False
User did not make the minimum number of edits during the threshold time.
-1 = Undefined
User likely has not yet been registered long enough to meet the threshold time (?).

Note: To help you distinguish how Threshold and Survival differ, this tutorial switches the order of how these appear in Wikimetrics.
