If you are going to start gathering individual user activity within the 
QA community.

You need to collect from

Filed reports and bug status changes ( Covers reporting and triaging 
might wanna separated stats for all bug status changes )

Karma points given and probably want to keep positive and negative karma 

Which packages individual gives karma points

Wiki editing ( lines added removed etc )

Track activity ( tickets filed acted upon )

Track activity ( tickets filed, acted upon and code committed )

irc .

#fedora-bugzappers ( The triage team decided to move to their own 
channel because QA was more QE only discussion )

I think that covers all areas QA community members operate in.

I recommend having all those stats graphed, community members that get 
paid for doing this for a living keep separated, head count be kept from 
which country individuals are participating and the option be for 
individuals to be able to opt themselves out if they choose to do so.
