For T190775 is about the experiment documented at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Voice_and_exit_in_a_voluntary_work_environment/Team_work_effect:a_viability_test
Our understanding of what we need:
- Help finalize the list of language(s) the experiment will run in. Currently en, cs, and ko are considered. potentially fa.
- Help us understand if sending emails is okay? Is there any consideration we need to take into account when sending the emails? (beyond option for opt-out, clear foundation address and contact information, and that we probably shouldn't email those who have the box for receiving emails from other users unchecked.)
- Help with translating the text of the survey, community announcement, etc. Research can consider using a professional firm for certain parts of the translation while others will rely on wiki context and are better done by those familiar with the wiki.
- Bring any relevant conversation that you're aware of to the attention of the team as the experiment continues.
- Anything else that you think makes sense and we missed it.
For T190776 we will be testing the system developed in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Voice_and_exit_in_a_voluntary_work_environment/Elicit_new_editor_interests In a nutshell, the system will ask n questions from editor x and then provides a list of m editors that have similar interests to editor x. The system has many applications, for example, to help increase collaboration opportunities or match people when they join the project early on with the editors who have similar interests.
- If languages other than en are considered, we will need help with translation and community discussions.
- The priority should be to test this in enwiki first, but if that doesn't happen, the switching costs to other languages are not major.
