Thanks for reporting this, @Urbanecm. Although we didn't intend to release this feature, now that it's out, I think it's not urgent to pull it back because my brief analysis doesn't make it seem like it's impacting users negatively. I think we can use this opportunity to look at whether the updated email seems to be having any effect.

@Theklan -- our team talked about this some more, and we've changed our minds! We now think we should deploy to all Basque newcomers, and not do an A/B test. The reason is that (1) Basque Wikipedia gets few enough new accounts that they won't make a big difference in our experiment analysis (2) since you plan to run in-person programs, this will make things smoother, since all newcomers will have the feature by default.

I just changed the description to say that we will deploy to all new users, not in an A/B test. That's because Basque Wikipedia gets new accounts slowly enough that the experiment would take too long to run. Perhaps @Theklan and company can keep an eye out for whether it seems like the welcome survey causes fewer new users to finish creating their accounts.

MMiller_WMF moved T233063: Deploy welcome survey to Basque Wikipedia from Incoming to Ready for Development on the Growth-Team (Current Sprint) board.

This is ready for development, but should not be deployed until we have the survey privacy statement upload by Legal, and the appropriate link for putting into the survey.

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T232400: Newcomer tasks: welcome survey changes.

@nettrom_WMF -- I think it is possible that these lines affect a user's motivation, but I don't know whether it will decrease or increase it. On the one hand, it sounds like a less altruistic motivation (to help yourself instead of others), but on the other hand it sounds like there's more in it for you. Given that I'm not sure which way it would go, I think it's better to try to make these statements cleave as closely as possible to the reality of how we're using the responses.

I received a good note from @ppelberg today -- when we first wrote the welcome survey, we weren't using it to personalize the new user's experience. So the survey doesn't say in any of its language that it will be beneficial to the user taking it. Now that we will be personalizing their experience, we can use clearer language to them so that they understanding.
