The formula I mentioned is not right to get 100%. You formula is:

    eff2 = valid_edits/total_edits

But we need to get stats about active users to see that new rule
is not an impediment. We can either count active users before and

    active_users = registered_users - users_who_made_valid_edits

And compare that to the same stats from the previous period.
