[EPIC] "Add an image" Iteration 1
Open, HighPublic

Description

Structured tasks are meant to break down editing tasks into step-by-step workflows that make sense for newcomers and make sense on mobile devices. The Growth team believes that introducing these new kinds of editing workflows will allow more new people to begin participating on Wikipedia, some of whom will learn to do more substantial edits and get involved with their communities. After discussing the idea of structured tasks with communities, we decided to build the first structured task: T252822: [EPIC] Growth: "add a link" structured task 1.0

As we were building “add a link”, we were planning the next task around images. We hypothesize that adding images to articles will be a visually engaging task that newcomers would enjoy, which would also add substantial value to the wikis. Through a series of user tests, algorithm evaluations, and the Android MVP of this task, we decided to move forward.

We hypothesize that this task will cause new kinds of people to enjoy editing, and lead them to continue editing and learning. But we go into this with many open questions, and this is the first iteration of the Growth team's work, meant to help us learn quickly.
