: I’m not an analytics expert, but I play one on TV.  Actually, I literally sit next to one at work. I will ask him about this, but would you ever consider adding some kind of analytics to the new site if it could be anonymized?  Although we would love to know who uses the site, we really just need to know what they are doing.  It would really help you to understand how the site is used, what works, what doesn’t work, etc.  It’s much easier to make decisions and set priorities about what to work on when you have this kind of data.  It’s might be clear to some what goes in the MVP, but after that you run the risk of spending limited resources on things that don’t matter as much.

The goal of the data collection is to collect the minimum possible. Assume
someone cracks the servers and leaks the log files. In a perfect world. we
don't log anything. We don't want any identifying info stored in the logs.
