Isaac added a comment to T228319: Determine important article features with respect to readership.

I'm currently exploring how to expand the ORES drafftopic model to languages besides English. The approach I have taken to this is to build a model that predicts the ~40 categories used by the ORES drafttopic model.

Isaac added a comment to T232525: Repeat demographics surveys for longer time period.

Regarding the sampling rate for Polish Wikipedia, their page views are generally about one third of those to Russian Wikipedia (https://tools.wmflabs.org/siteviews/?platform=all-access&source=pageviews&agent=user&range=this-year&sites=ru.wikipedia.org|pl.wikipedia.org) and unique devices are also a bit under one third (https://stats.wikimedia.org/v2/#/pl.wikipedia.org/reading/unique-devices/normal|line|2-year|~total|monthly). Based on this, I will recommend setting the sampling rate to three times that of Russian Wikipedia.

Thanks for the ping @Elitre -- I'm comfortable with wrapping up this task if @Trizek-WMF is. There shouldn't be any further community relations support until we start sharing out results, but we can open a new task then if it is deemed necessary.

Isaac added a comment to T228319: Determine important article features with respect to readership.

My first attempt at building a language-independent means of representing article topic -- i.e. grouping article page views into categories regardless of which Wikipedia language edition that article was read in -- was to map each page view to its Wikidata item and then represent the item based on its instance-of / subclass-of properties. An example of how this might work is below [1]. The goal is to build a set of higher-level categories to which any Wikidata item with an instance-of property can be mapped to. This is similar to the 14 categories in the Wikidata Concepts Monitor but ideally with no overlap and full coverage -- i.e. all items map deterministically to a single category.

Isaac closed T212448: Prepare demographics survey data for analysis as Resolved.

Debiasing complete.

  • See reader behavior features under T228285 for features that were used in debiasing.
  • It was determined that a GradientBoostingClassifier performed best with respect to making the average features -- e.g., average pages viewed per session) for the survey respondents match the general population for the wiki -- though LogisticRegression also worked quite well in many cases.
  • Wikidata instance-of ended up being relatively uninformative so I might revisit that with drafttopic categories.
  • As part of this work, a few changes were required:
    • African and Worldwide surveys (english/french) were separated because I realized that weights from debiasing would not be comparable if they came from two separate models (if a single model was used for english or french, country was a very strong predictor of whether someone took the survey or not)
    • I trimmed the control sessions to exactly match the survey session timespan because the survey was launched / ended mid-day and that meant without careful control, that day of week became a strong predictor of whether someone took the survey or not.

Isaac added a comment to T228091: Community relations support for editor gender surveys.

Yes, I've been compiling the feedback and will make sure to include some recommendations regarding the functionality of QuickSurveys for this type of survey. In particular:

  • Ability to remove survey without responding explicitly. This should be a relatively straightforward UI fix but would require someone to do the work obviously.
  • Ability to opt out completely from surveys like this. This would likely be more complicated as it would have to be a change to the user settings, databases, etc. and we would have to determine if it only applied to QuickSurveys or other extensions as well.
  • Confusion around survey re-appearing in new browsers (or the same browser if cookies are deleted). This is how the sampling works but this is not at all evident to respondents, so there can be confusion when someone responds and then sees the survey again. I don't believe we can change the sampling strategy to be aware of whether a user account has already taken the survey in a different browser without compromising privacy, but we should consider having a better explanation of this within the survey to head off concerns for any future deployments.
  • General frustration/anger with the presence of the survey (in some part tied to the difficulty of opting out from it).

Thanks @Trizek-WMF ! Just an FYI that one of the pages I created (https://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Editor-gender-1-privacy), which contains the privacy policy link that is shown to survey takers in Bokmål, was nominated for deletion. It happened over the weekend so I just responded with more context and hopefully it will resolve itself, but we will need this page to run the survey. So if it is deleted, we will need to work with the community to resolve that.

In the task description, concerning "Obtaining translations for village pump conversations", what does it mean precisely? Do you need to get the translations of the message (included kin the request to translators) or do you need help to translate the replies? I may be lost in translations here. :)

@Trizek-WMF : yeah, we're looking for translations of the message included in the translation docs (The Wikimedia Foundation [[mw:Wikimedia_Research|Research]] and ...) so that it can be posted in the editing community's language. for any replies, we might need support, but i suspect that Google Translate etc. will be good enough for getting the gist if the responses are in Norwegian / Arabic.

Isaac added a comment to T215825: Prepare modeling task for outside competition.

While this is still desired and we may move forward with it (specifically around language switching), it's being put on hold for the foreseeable future while other tasks are worked out.

Closing this task as I move to the analysis component (T212448). See the configuration subtask (T226273) for final count of responses from each language. See the meta talk page for more details on future survey rounds.

Isaac closed T226273: Demographic Surveys Configurations as Resolved.

surveys finished deployment. description updated w/ final counts of survey responses for each language edition. note that these counts include responses under 18, which was between 10% (german) and 35% (hebrew) of all survey responses. respondents under 18 did not respond to other questions though, so they will not be included in any other analyses.

I updated the nutshell template at the top of the page that indicated it was a legacy page to the historical template to make it more clear that this page is obsolete.
