Growth team - Mentor audit - OCt. 2020 edition
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Ambassadors to check the mentors activity.

  • Step 1: look through all the list of mentors, and note down whether they are (a) active on wiki, (b) answering newbie questions
  • Step 2: report the findings in this task as a comment
  • Step 3: check if there is a trend on communities concerning mentors' involvement.

Decision to remove inactive mentors would be left to communities, after a possible communication in the Growth team newsletter.

Event Timeline

Trizek-WMF moved this task from Inbox to Q2 2019-20 on the Growth-Team board.

Report from Arwiki;

  • 13 mentors in totally,
  • One mentor is back after one month of inactivity (added his name by himself),
  • One mentor is active but didn't reply to questions since September 27,
  • One mentor also admin is protecting (since August) his talkpage from edits by newcomers. So I asked him if the abusefilter solution from @Urbanecm_WMF will be convenient in order to remove the protection.
  • All other mentors are active and are replying to questions.

Hi, so in viwiki:

  • 12 mentors total
  • Keo010122: the lastest 2 questions are unanswered
  • Q.khải: a lot of questions unanswered, but he did answer few questions.
  • Mạnh An: most of the questions are answered
  • All mentors are active. Mentors not mentioned above answered all mentee's questions.

We have an user changed his name. Should it be changed in the mentor list too?

Yes. Otherwise, I think the tool won't work. Let me ask, but the change should be made in the meantime, just in case.

@Urbanecm -- could you please include your audit?

Oh, sure, I forgot to post it here. I just re-ran the script to re-generate https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gV4gKuJI21KXzP5WMq5sFoS8OdETTLHhRSubnEjH5Rc/edit?usp=sharing, and the mentor activity seems to be in order.

Thank you for checking!

Overall, it appears that mentors take good care of their mentees.

I don't think there is a particular action to take there. However, I'll add a line, as a community tip, in the next newsletter, inviting people to check on mentors and advertising again on special:ClaimMentees.
