DarTar updated subscribers of T213969: Citation Usage: run third round of data collection.

@bmansurov thanks for the detailed explanation. I defer to @tizianopiccardi and @Miriam on the best strategy to check for potential regressions from a data consumer perspective (it might be tricky to reproduce the various workflows that may trigger errors locally). @EBernhardson if there's anything I can do to help make a case for expediting this, let me know (bribe_mode="on").

DarTar added a comment to T213969: Citation Usage: run third round of data collection.

@bmansurov thanks for announcing the timeline. Is it unrealistic to have the patch reviewed and a deployment scheduled before All Hands week? This would gave our collaborators two more weeks to start the analysis.

Regarding "a reference for the signed MOU/NDA", the process we've followed so far is to use the tracker maintained by @RStallman-legalteam called "NDA and MOU: Volunteer accounts with Server and LDAP-level access", which is the authoritative source of information.

DarTar added a comment to T193969: track percentage of articles making use of data from Wikidata.

Please expand in the report what's meant by "Wikidata usage", it's ambiguous and could be interpreted as items linked vs statement-level data reused via templates.

DarTar added a comment to T205325: Remove broken campaign=leftNavSignup code.

Regarding the results, this was reported and discussed internally and apparently we didn't do the due diligence to complete the final report on Meta (I remember this was one of the last experiments the team ran before a change in product ownership). I can try and dig up the analysis in the coming days if that's helpful for future experiments.

DarTar added a comment to T97566: Provide another way to surface usage instructions besides tacking them onto descriptions.

I think the way to solve the issue is to use P2559. For this to happen, it seems to be we need:

  • A way for wbsearchentity to return P2559 (which implies, to return any additional data, configurable as P2559 for Wikidata). We may want to use T189744: Add hints parameter to wbsearchentities here or any other way to ask for it from client-side, or configure it server-side.
  • An UI acommodation to display usage instructions. Here some UX specialist help would be useful.

I think so, thanks @Neil_P._Quinn_WMF. I've been thinking of a minimal template we could use to populate individual cards about research ideas and make them more user-story-ish (there's the work @Capt_Swing has done with the IdeaLab that one could draw inspiration from, for starters). Without overengineering this (which would defy the purpose), do you think it would be useful to structure these cards using 3 simple questions:
