Including statistics with weekly updates

There appears to be some interest in having statistics as part of the teams weekly update, so a new post to gather asynchronous input will be created to move this forward.

  • Post comparison between themes, plugins, and general global forums
  • Amount of users blocked in a given time frame
  • Amount of reported topics handled
  • Amount of resolved thread within the given time frame
