Scale: deploy to "add an image" to second round of wikis
Open, In Progress, MediumPublic

Description

On Nov 29, we deployed "add an image" to Arabic, Czech, and Bengali Wikipedias. During February 2022, we will be deploying to Spanish Wikipedia (T301276).

Though our early data shows low usage, our leading indicators do not show problematically high revert rates. We also have not heard complaints from communities about the feature.

Therefore, we are ready to deploy the feature to more Wikipedias. This will generate data and community reactions faster to facilitate our learning.

Any wiki is eligible for the next round, as we will benefit from a new API that virtually cover all languages. The next deployment will happen mid-June 2022.

Selected wikis (list to be completed):

RSVP list

  • ru (said yes, but let's wait for now)
  • ht (contacted)
  • eo (contacted)
  • ko (contacted)

The deployment to more wikis is stalled as we wait for the new API.

We would be ready in June. We need to have a list of wikis, that I will define. The API will expand the list of possible candidate to all Wikipedias.

I informed the communities about the deployment in September.
