Ask the eswiki community whether we can run the performance perception survey there
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The study has progressed a lot in recent months, there's a (currently embargoed) research paper that came out of it. As a follow-up we've identified the need to collect more data, in order to attempt using deep learning (neural networks) to make a better prediction of user opinion about page performance.

Spanish Wikipedia is particularly interesting because it gets traffic from very diverse countries, and it's a high traffic wiki.

The format of the survey hasn't changed since T188503: Identify two wikis to run a research study and get approval from their respective communities

The fact that this is assigned to Sherry makes me think this is a request for support, but I am unsure of several details, hence:

  • What is the problem?
  • How can we help you?
  • What does success look like?
  • What is your deadline?
  • We need to ask the eswiki community's permission before running the perceived performance microsurvey on that wiki.
  • You can help me by interfacing with that community in the form appropriate to them to make that formal request.
  • Success looks like the eswiki agreeing to have that microsurvey run on their wiki :)
  • There's no deadline. "The sooner the better" in terms of data collection.

@Gilles have you found a good balance between the information you need to get and a ratio that seems to make sense for most people? (I saw the comments at

I think so, I'm going to apply a different sampling ratio to readers and editors, so that it doesn't get annoying for editors who view hundreds of pages daily.

Sure, let's say it would start on February 18?

I'll post a note, and I'll ping you in it, so you'll see it the next time you're on wiki.
