Well, it's always going to be upwards, since it's counting first
uploads and not active uploaders, that would be extremely difficult
and arbitrary to measure.  Regardless of that, yes, we keep having new
uploaders, and that's good.

At some point I had planned to mail all the non-DD first uploaders, to
find out if they have some opinion to share about their experience,
and how things could be improved, but I never did it.  I'm going to do
that now, since I think it'd be useful in order to get some new fresh

I think it's pretty clear, that the DW project cause an important
increase in participation which later led to an increase in more women
becoming DDs.  Obviously not all cases are related, but I think that
it's pretty evident that the original effort had a very immediate
result, while nowadays we are almost having no results, and I'd like
to do something about it.
