Remove CiviCRM install count from dashboard
It was said at the 2019 Summit/Sprint that a requirement to get CiviCRM listed in the Wordpress plugins directory was to turn off statistics pingback on new installs by default - and this happened a few months ago (can anyone confirm? @cividesk?). As a result all new installs of CiviCRM are not pinging stats collection so the total site count appears to have fallen in the same period from near 11,000 six months ago to around 10,000 today:
Perhaps there is is another cause, but is it time to just remove this stat from the main CiviCRM dashboard? This was a post-it proposal put to the UX/UI group during the sprint as the notice seems to be giving a false impression of the project being in decline. Not sure what this would entail but it appears linked to this template: templates/CRM/Dashlet/Page/GettingStarted.tpl & this file: CRM/Dashlet/Page/GettingStarted.php.
