[Epic] Teahouse Q&A dynamics
Open, NormalPublic

Description

A study of editor behavior on the Teahouse Q&A board.

Collaboration between @Capt_Swing and @Flipover. Goal is to understand how the behavior of Teahouse guests and hosts has changed over time. Findings can inform the design of new editor support tools and community projects.

  • Insights into the quality of service provided at the Teahouse can help us understand the long-term sustainability and effectiveness of Teahouse-like community-driven new editor support forums.
  • Insights into the kinds of questions new editors ask at the Teahouse can help us understand the primary issues that new editors face, and perhaps even yield a sense of priority/proportionality between (for example) technical issues vs interpersonal struggles vs policy issues... to the extent that these things can ever be separated on wiki ;)

Timeline (from April 1 2018):
Reviewers have noted that the limitations of the study could be ameliorated by including interview data to contextualize and support the conclusions. 4 interviews have already been completed; we need to perform at least 2-3 more before submitting to CSCW 2018.

  • send invites to 8 more Teahouse hosts
  • draft updated interview protocol
  • interview hosts
  • update manuscript with new interview findings
  • submit abstract to CSCW 2018 (deadline: April 16)
  • submit manuscript to CSCW 2018 (deadline: April 19)
