Title: Newcomer-friendly edit-review tools: help imagine what that looks like
None [none of the official ones, anyway. If you need a topic, how about "The Future of Edit Review"
==Type of activity:==
Edit Review Improvements (ERI) is a Collaboration Team project seeking to improve the edit-review process generally and, in particular, to provide a more supportive process for good-faith newcomers—a group with special needs, according to research. So far, ERI has focused on helping reviewers find struggling but good-faith newcomers, using ORES and other tools. But what then? How can we capitalize on this new capability?What tools would make supporting newcomers during edit review easier and more satisfying? What are the challenges—what’s missing? What best practices can people who support newcomers at Tea House or Help Desk contribute? Should we adapt current tools, like Twinkle and Huggle, or build something new? These are the questions we'll be asking as we plan ERI's next phase.
Input from patrollers, the developer community and everyone with experience coaching new users will inform our next round of research and design.
Current status of the discussion
The planning process of ERI phase II is just beginning, but we've done a series of interviews with patrollers, Teahouse hosts and others. This research forms a good foundation for this next round of expoloration.
