Activate Growth mentorship at Spanish Wikipedia
Open, HighPublic

Description

One aspect of encouraging donors to create accounts and edit is that we promise them that they will be welcomed by a mentor. However, this mentorship system based on Growth tools is not yet set up at some wikis, including our polit wiki for this experience, Spanish Wikipedia.

There is a mentorship system at Spanish Wikipedia, but it is disconnected from our tools: newcomers have to find their mentor when we automatically assign one.

The goal of this task is to setup a Growth mentorship page.


What are the differences between the two systems?

Welcomers (Growth features)Mentors (Mentoring program)
EncounterAutomatically assigned to new accountsNewcomers have to find their mentor, to work on a specific topic
ScopeTake care of immediate questionsLong-term, conscious collaboration
SpecializationSpecialists of first stepsSpecialists of in-depth topics
Evolutionnewcomers to become “young” editorsHelp young editors to become long-term, experienced editors

Number of mentors
We advise to have one mentor for each batch of 500 newcomers joining each month. On average, es.wp gets 20,000 new accounts per month, which means a need of +40 mentors.

Possible backup solution
Change the Help links module to display the help panel form, that would post on the local help desk.

OK, I'm removing from the current sprint in this case.
