Homepage: Impact module - make users aware that asking mentor or help desk questions are also counted as contributions
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Problem

Currently, when a new question is asked by the user to either their mentor or the help desk, the "number of edits to other kinds of pages" counter in the impact module does not change in real-time.
The counter is *not* updated unless the user refreshes the homepage or returns later, making it unclear that the edit 'counts' as an other page edit.

User job story

When I ask a question to either my mentor or the help desk on the newcomer homepage,
I want to see that it counts as an edit on in my "Impact" module,
So that I understand and can feel encouraged that asking questions is a type of contribution.

Proposed solution

TBD - this is a subtask of the Impact module improvements epic T222310.

Hi @Cntlsn, let's put this on hold for now and include it into more wholesale improvements to the Impact module we are considering on T222310

Moving out of our current sprint work (@MMiller_WMF @RHo if you disagree please change it back)

Hi @MMiller_WMF - can we decline this task? It's a very low/no priority for us to improve Talk page contributions and feels distracting from the main objective of increasing content contributions.

This is not a priority.
