@JKatzWMF et al., please let me know if we are missing something we should provide. If we can start the survey on Thursday morning, that'd be great. There is a slight chance we need to stop the survey on Thursday afternoon. it would be great if we can be ready for that. If things go as expected in the first hours after the test is live on Thursday, we will leave the test run until Monday morning.

@leila what's different about this survey besides targeting mobile? If it's the link, has the enwiki key been updated with the new link? If it's nothing, are we just running the exact same survey again, but this time on mobile?

@jhobs: we're running the exact same survey on mobile, and with a different sampling rate. I expect all the keys to stay the same.

@leila @atgo owns the answers to these questions -- I was just creating the ticket. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but it is definitely for the best :)

Working on the answers. @jhobs is checking if we can do deployments at all in this window - apparently it's been marked as "high priority SWATs only"

If you look at this page, it looks like if we tried to run a survey tomorrow, we wouldn't be able to bring it down until Monday the 30th... I'm trying to get clarity on what qualifies as a "high priority SWAT," but I highly doubt this does.

I'll follow up with Megan Hernandez (off phab) about this timing with the
campaign and get back to you. Maybe @greg can weigh in on the deployment

For loop-closedness, I've emailed @MeganHernandez_WMF and @greg and asked them to follow up here:

Hey team-

Reading/Research would like to run another round of quicksurvey before the campaign goes live if possible. It requires a SWAT deploy to go up and down.

There's discussion in this ticket:

2 questions:
- Can we take it down during the end of next week (thanksgiving) with someone who's not US based?
- Would taking it down Monday 11/30 be OK from a campaign perspective?

If neither of these are possible, we'll table it. Could you follow up on the phab task?

2 questions:

  • Can we take it down during the end of next week (thanksgiving) with someone who's not US based?

Can you do it on Wednesday? That's mostly OK with me (turning something off is less risky than turning it on, usually).
@K4-713: that ok with you?

  • Would taking it down Monday 11/30 be OK from a campaign perspective?

This is an even better solution in my mind :)

Hi, what's the chance there could be a problem with the deployment once the survey ends? Could we end the survey on Wednesday before Thanksgiving so that we're not dealing with any potential issues with the deployment the day before the fundraiser launch? Or when people are traveling? That would be great!

We will be running full traffic tests and banners at a low level while the survey is set to run. I understand the percentage of people who will see the survey is very very low the overlap will be minimal. In general, I think it could be better not to run more notices/call to actions before a big campaign. In this case, it sounds like the traffic will be so low it should not have an impact on the fundraiser.

I would check in with Comms to give them a heads up in case they get questions about the survey and because they are aiming to run a banner next Tuesday. Thanks!

@MeganHernandez_WMF, @jhobs @atgo

To help us move forward: Research needs the survey to run until Monday, Nov. 23. We won't need more data to run it another extra two days.

The survey is now live. I'll schedule a deployment for the 23rd to take it down. Would you prefer I leave it through the day on Monday and do an evening SWAT, or disable it during the monring?

Let's start using the same config in our description that we'll use in the code to avoid hiccups like today's sampling rate issue. I've updated the description to reflect this.

@jhobs thanks for taking care of this today. Disabling the survey on Monday morning would work well. Thanks!
