What is the problem?
In FY2020-21/Q4 we plan to deploy a notification which will notify editors when they become eligible for the Wikipedia Library program (T132084). When this deployment happens, any editors who already qualify will receive the notification. We estimate this number to be approximately 20,000-30,000 users (more accurate number pending - T271962). Though we are planning a gradual rollout (T271921), this is still a substantial number of users to invite to the library, most of whom won't be familiar with it, and many of whom will find the platform defaulting to English rather than their native language due to a lack of translation. We're not sure we've assessed all the non-technical risks with this, and might find hands-on support at the time of deployment valuable.
How can we help you?
I'd like to discuss this to figure out what makes most sense, the following two topics are top of mind:
- Assessing risks and anticipating community questions/concerns
- Providing hands-on support around the time of deployment to field questions and respond to issues
What does success look like?
A smooth notification deployment with no drama :)
What is your deadline?
We expect to deploy the notification mid-Q4.
