This information is an argument in favor of a probable correlation between a start of donation campaign with site-notice and the beginning of the participation and retention decline of small contributors. This situation for contributors has not changed since the beginning of 2007 (graph B), while profits linked to the site-notice campaign have continued to increase (graph C).
The community growth space could probably spend time to evaluate this first analysis, think about how to consolidate it.
In a second step, it would also be possible to think about future actions that would take into account a likely influence between the donation of money and the donation of time.
