Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Background

We want to help effective communication between users in the Wikipedia Android app to improve Wikipedia. Our goal is to create a simple and better communication interface to lower barriers for working with other Wikipedians and increase confidence while improving the wikis.

Research questions
  • When do users want to communicate with other users on Wikipedia?
  • What other tools do people use to communicate outside of Wikipedia?
  • How do users prefer to access user talk pages?
  • How do users prefer to access article talk pages?
  • Do users desire to look up other users on Wikipedia?
  • How can edits discussions be made more efficiently for users?
Test format

The usability survey will be posted as a new page MediaWiki and responses will be submitted via new subjects on its talk page.

Audience

The snackbar will be targeted to:

  • English Wikipedia users/editors in India and Nigeria
  • Arabic and French Wikipedia users/editors from Morocco, Egypt, DR Congo and Mali
  • Hindi Wikipedia users/editors
  • Indonesian Wikipedia users/editors
  • Japanese Wikipedia

The English survey has been translated into Arabic, French, Hindi, [Indonesian](https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Apps/Team/An
