I need to gather all the edits to the talkpages of the 14K users in this sample, made between the time the user registered and when the bot invited some of them. Aaron and I will use these data to explore what kind of messages these users received before they were invited to the Teahouse, and maybe identify some factors that make users more likely to seek help.

First, build out the th_retention_sample table to include talkpages.
get all the talkpages for the users whose talkpage can be found
update th_retention_sample trs join enwiki.page p on REPLACE(trs.user_name, " ", "_") = p.page_title set trs.user_talk_id = p.page_id, trs.ut_is_redirect = p.page_is_redirect where p.page_namespace = 3;
#13735 rows

13735/14766=0.9302 or 93% of the total. Some of those that remain (in the control group) never had talkpages. How many?

select count(user_id) from th_retention_sample where user_talk_id IS NULL and sample_group = "control";
#1013

So 13735+1013=14748 , which means that only 18 of these pages are otherwise unaccounted for (tho some of the control users may have also had their talkpages deleted.

next, let's get the ids of the pages that are redirects
I assume most of these were redirected because of a user name change (tho we don't know this for certain). We'll try to control for that by only looking for new page ids that are still in the user_talk namespace
update th_retention_sample trs join enwiki.redirect r on trs.user_talk_id = r.rd_from join enwiki.page p on r.rd_title = p.page_title set trs.ut_new_id = p.page_id where trs.ut_is_redirect = 1 and r.rd_namespace = 3 and p.page_namespace = 3;
#50 rows updated

A couple of people's user talkpages redirect to content space. We'll ignore those.

select * from th_retention_sample where ut_is_redirect = 1 and ut_new_id is null;
#Jaspreet singh mankoo
#Nasranilokam


now, get the ids of any deleted talkpages from the archive table
add them in here, and set the page_is_deleted flag so we can find them later

first, set page_is_deleted = 0 for everything that has a page

update th_retention_sample trs set ut_is_deleted = 0 where user_talk_id is not null;
#13735 rows updated

how many invited users don't have talkpages?

	
select * from th_retention_sample where sample_group = "invited" and user_talk_id is null;
#18

Let's get the ids of the deleted ones, redirect or no

		
update jmorgan.th_retention_sample trs join enwiki.archive a on REPLACE(trs.user_name, " ", "_") = a.ar_title set trs.user_talk_id = a.ar_page_id, ut_is_deleted = 1 where a.ar_timestamp > 20141001000000 and trs.user_talk_id is null and trs.ut_is_deleted is null and a.ar_namespace = 3;
#11 pages updated

We have about 10 users left who are lised as "invited" but don't have a talkpage. Several of these are SUL finalization moves that didn't do a redirect. For example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Hocngo

At least two are is a mystery. Looks like this invite was never delivered:

Let's get the new page ids for the SUL condition ones, from the log table.

		
update jmorgan.th_retention_sample trs join enwiki.logging l on REPLACE(trs.user_name, " ", "_") = l.log_title set trs.ut_new_id = l.log_page, trs.ut_is_deleted = 1 where trs.ut_is_redirect is null and trs.ut_new_id is null and l.log_namespace = 3 and l.log_action = "move" and l.log_type = "move" and l.log_timestamp > 20141001000000;
#9 rows updated

Are there any deleted user pages for control users that we need to account for?

		
select * from jmorgan.th_retention_sample trst join enwiki.logging l on REPLACE(trst.user_name, " ", "_") = l.log_title where l.log_namespace = 3 and l.log_action = "move" and l.log_type = "move" and l.log_timestamp > 20141001000000;
#78 rows returned

Yes, looks like there are a variety of edge cases to account for here. Mostly, people who were moved without redirects.

finally, update the new page ids
for those last control users whose pages were deleted after moving
		
update jmorgan.th_retention_sample trs join enwiki.logging l on REPLACE(trs.user_name, " ", "_") = l.log_title set trs.ut_new_id = l.log_page, trs.ut_is_deleted = 1 where l.log_namespace = 3 and trs.sample_group = "control" and l.log_timestamp > 20141001000000 and log_action in ("delete") and trs.user_talk_id != l.log_page;
#3 rows
Alright! Now let's create a table to hold all the edits.

first, everyone who has a non-deleted talkpage that isn't a redirect. the most straightforward case, and the largest number of users

		
create table th_retention_sample_preinvite_talkpage_edits select rev_id, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_page, rev_comment, rev_timestamp, rev_minor_edit, rev_deleted, rev_len from enwiki.revision r join jmorgan.th_retention_sample t on r.rev_page = t.user_talk_id where r.rev_timestamp between t.user_registration and DATE_FORMAT(t.sample_date, '%Y%m%d%H%i%s') and t.ut_is_redirect = 0 and t.ut_is_deleted = 0;
#14857

now, for users whose talkpage redirects to another page, and we have the other page, but that page is not deleted, give me edits to that page

		
insert ignore into th_retention_sample_preinvite_talkpage_edits (rev_id, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_page, rev_comment, rev_timestamp, rev_minor_edit, rev_deleted, rev_len) select rev_id, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_page, rev_comment, rev_timestamp, rev_minor_edit, rev_deleted, rev_len from enwiki.revision r join jmorgan.th_retention_sample t on r.rev_page = t.ut_new_id where r.rev_timestamp between t.user_registration and DATE_FORMAT(t.sample_date, '%Y%m%d%H%i%s') and t.ut_is_redirect = 1;
#49

now for edits to deleted pages, using the original id (non-redirects)

			
insert ignore into th_retention_sample_preinvite_talkpage_edits (rev_id, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_page, rev_comment, rev_timestamp, rev_minor_edit, rev_deleted, rev_len, ut_is_deleted) select ar_rev_id, ar_user, ar_user_text, ar_page_id, ar_comment, ar_timestamp, ar_minor_edit, ar_deleted, ar_len, ut_is_deleted from enwiki.archive a join jmorgan.th_retention_sample t on a.ar_page_id = t.user_talk_id where a.ar_timestamp between t.user_registration and DATE_FORMAT(t.sample_date, '%Y%m%d%H%i%s') and t.ut_is_deleted = 1;
#20 rows

now for edits to deleted pages, using the new id (redirects)

			
insert ignore into th_retention_sample_preinvite_talkpage_edits (rev_id, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_page, rev_comment, rev_timestamp, rev_minor_edit, rev_deleted, rev_len, ut_is_deleted) select ar_rev_id, ar_user, ar_user_text, ar_page_id, ar_comment, ar_timestamp, ar_minor_edit, ar_deleted, ar_len, ut_is_deleted from enwiki.archive a join jmorgan.th_retention_sample t on a.ar_page_id = t.ut_new_id where a.ar_timestamp between t.user_registration and DATE_FORMAT(t.sample_date, '%Y%m%d%H%i%s') and t.ut_is_deleted = 1;
#11 rows

Sanity checkEdit

we should have around as many pre-invite revisions between these two groups. taking the largest subset (those whose talkpage wasn't redirected

			
select avg(revs) from (select count(rev_id) as revs from th_retention_sample_preinvite_talkpage_edits tt join th_retention_sample t on t.user_talk_id = tt.rev_page where t.sample_group = "control" and t.ut_is_redirect = 0 and t.ut_is_deleted = 0 group by t.user_talk_id) a;
#control average = 2.1519
#invited average = 2.0886

Looks good!
