agreed. Admittedly the stats look pretty bad, user numbers have been dropping constantly since 2012, in 2015 there were 24000 PL2 users, 2016: 14700, 2017 10000, 2018 6400, 2019 4900 and 2020 only 2500 so far, but I am willing to believe that these are mostly long term and hardcore contributors, and 2500 is no big money for the OpenStreetMap-Foundation, so it may be worth the effort. At least you can be sure that in  these 9,7 million edits no imports are hiding ;-) and this number makes it 4th for performed edits.

Cheers Martin
