T293946: Enable talk for mobile users on enwiki will make it so people who are logged out visiting English Wikipedia on a mobile device will see a link to talk pages on the articles they're viewing.
This task is about identifying what metrics we would like to calculate in order to evaluate the impacts said change is having on talk pages and the people who depend on them.
- Review metrics and research questions proposed in https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wCI5SxwlTt0GTFzCW3H3wMFx_-FiTtBuW4WlNbQU9_M/edit?usp=chrome_omnibox&ouid=111587476130020861920 and identify the following:
- are we currently instrumenting this
- does the current instrumentation allow for the following dimensions:
- logged-in status
- (nice to have) page
- Use the above to begin draft of instrumentation spec
Questions we want to answer
- How does this change affect the amount of vandalism and other non-relevant content on talk pages?
- How does this change affect the communication between anonymous and logged-in editors?
- Does this change affect the overall number of IP editors blocked from editing?
- Does this change affect the number of unreverted edits made by IP editors (split by namespace)?
- Does exposing readers to talk pages decrease their overall trust in Wikipedia?
- Do readers understand the purpose of the talk page and how to interact with it?
- Do they spend any substantial amount of time on talk pages (definition of substantial TBD)?
- Do they leave the site entirely after visiting the talk page?
From initial description:
This section will contain the metrics we would like to calculate and what – if any – new instrumentation would need to be implemented to do so.
