Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This task is about learning how Senior Contributors currently find out when their input is needed/valued in a conversation.

Background

Senior Contributors are often involved and/or interested in a variety of conversations at any given moment. For example, they might be:

  • Talking with a Junior Contributor on their user talk page about the edit(s) a Junior Contributor recently made: https://w.wiki/epo & https://w.wiki/epp
  • Talking with a Junior Contributor on an article talk page about an edit they would like to make/see made: https://w.wiki/epq

We are interested in knowing how Senior Contributors go about keeping track of these conversations that exist across different pages.

  • 2. Of the "different ways" Senior Contributors come to know when their input is needed/valued in a conversation, which do they find to be most effective?
  • 3. What challenges/issues do Senior Contributors encounter when trying to track the conversations their input is needed/valued in?

Done

  • All "Research questions" above are answered
