Content for various help boxes:

How are downloads counted?
Download counts are updated at the end of every day (<abbr title="Greenwich Mean Time">GMT</abbr>) with the number of new add-on downloads from that day. Automatic updates to already-installed add-ons are not included in this total.

How are daily users counted?
Add-ons downloaded from this website check for updates once per day, and the total number of these update pings is known as Active Daily Users. Active Daily Users (ADU) can be broken down by add-on version, operating system, add-on status, application, and locale.

How can I track my own download sources?
By simply adding a tracking code to add-on links from your own websites, you can see how many daily downloads came from each of your custom sources. [Learn how to track external sources]

We should then link to a new static-ish page with this content, passing in the add-on id from which the user clicked:

Tracking External Download Sources

If you link to an add-on's details page or file from an external site, such as a blog or website, you can append a parameter to be tracked as an additional download source in the add-on's Statistics Dashboard (link to that add-on's stats dashboard if the add-on id is set). For example, the following links would appear as sourced by a blog:

    * Add-on Details Page -
    * Direct File Link -

(those links should be the add-on id if it is set, otherwise replace with [YOUR ADD-ON ID]) Only src parameters that begin with "external-" and are less than 70 total characters will be tracked. Any text after "external-" can be used to describe the source, such as "external-blog", "external-sidebar", "external-campaign225", etc. All letters are numbers are valid characters, as well as the following: - . _ ~ + %
Target Milestone: 5.7 → 5.8
Target Milestone: 5.8 → 5.9
Assignee: smccammon → nobody
Priority: P1 → P3
Target Milestone: 5.9 → 4.x (triaged)
Assignee: nobody → thepotch
At Potch's request: a loading overlay for slower dashboard updates.
Target Milestone: 4.x (triaged) → 5.11.4
[qa-]; you'll get your own "have your way with" bug for verifying this
Whiteboard: [z] → [z][qa-]
Target Milestone: 5.11.4 → 5.11.5
I'm calling this fixed since the majority of the work is done - any other issues can go in their own bugs.  Thanks!
