Recruiting for T124416

------begin DRAFT email message for direct invites ---------

The Collaboration Team at the Wikimedia Foundation is seeking volunteers to test out new Notifications features.

We would like to speak to experienced editors like you who use Notification on at least one Wikimedia project. If you're interested in participating in this research, please reply to this message with your availability and timezone.

The only requirements for participating in this study are:

  1. you are an active contributor to Wikimedia projects for at least 3 months
  2. you use Firefox or Google Chrome as your primary browser*
  3. you are willing to speak with a WMF researcher (over Google Hangout)

Each study session will be approximately 45-60 minutes in length, and can be scheduled at a time that works best for you. If you haven't used Google Hangouts before, don't worry, we will walk you through it. Your participation will take no preparation, and all you have to do is show up at the Google Hangout with your laptop/desktop ready to go.

If you have any questions about this research, please feel free to send an email to our Research Participant Recruiter,, or simply reply to this message. :)

Thank you for helping us improve Wikimedia notifications!
Sincerely, Samantha Becker and Jonathan Morgan (Wikimedia Design Research)

Thank you, JMo, for writing the intro email. I am removing this line from the invites:

Your participation will take no preparation, and all you have to do is show up at the Google Hangout with your laptop/desktop ready to go.

I have found that when we ask participants to sign the Research Release Form they bring up this line in the introduction emails. It's just easier to leave it out :)

Invites will be going out today: Feb 16th. Hoping to schedule 7 users total.
