I like this because it's an quantifier of interest, but I worry that if we're too fixated on simple metrics we might miss the broader picture. That is, while doubling our membership would probably be a good thing, if the additional members are "silent partners" in the community it won't really help us.

I'm not sure how one would measure the metric, nor precisely what constitutes participation - perhaps it's best if it's left as a vague thing, but we could also use quarterly surveys to find out both how people want to help the community, and how they have.
