This month we celebrate the first birthday of Web Platform Docs!

So, naturally there will be a blog post. Maybe several. One of them should
talk about what we've accomplished since last October.

A major component of this is analytics: new members, total pages edited,
new content developed, and so forth. Can we get a year's worth of data from
Piwik?

Also, though, we've accomplished a lot that doesn't show up in our metrics.
For these things, we need narratives, and for those narratives we need you!

What have you been working on for WPD? What was challenging about it? How
did it improve WPD and the web?

I'll start us off with an example:

Thanks to the invaluable efforts of Dave Gash, Mike Sierra, Lance Leonard,
and many others, we reorganized the API
Reference<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/apis>,
updating 9 imported documents and adding 13 new documents, in over 730
pages. This provides the web with an excellent reference for many of the
main HTML5 APIs, including a few that are documented nowhere else.

See? What could be easier? The essential bits:

   - The people
   - Numbers
   - Actions
   - Results
   - Something unique

It doesn't have to be a lot, just salient. Facts play better than
superlatives, but use both.

Let's start listing our accomplishments here. Write up as many as you can
think of. Go!
