Description

The goal of this feature is to have an immediate view of last changes made by assigned mentors. Details would be provided using the filter built by T239241: Create a filter for mentors so that they can monitor their mentees' activity in watchlist and RecentChanges.

Event Timeline

@Iniquity shared the following with me:

[on Russian Wikipedia] There are some very unconstructive, inexperienced users who make a positive contribution to Wikipedia, but do not know how to communicate well. They are assigned "forced mentoring" by our administrators. That is, all their edits are strictly moderated by mentors, or in general, are published only by mentors. [...] And I think that it would be useful for such mentors to be able to monitor who they have as charges.

This is something to consider, but it shouldn't become a free stalking tool.

This feature can also provide insight into why many newbies go missing after answering. And after what questions they continue to edit.

This is something to consider, but it shouldn't become a free stalking tool.

I agree, this should be clearly discussed and controlled. For example, edits are shown only for those who ask questions to the mentor, and also only for a month, for example.

But for "forced mentors" my idea above is bad.
