MMiller_WMF moved T309975: Deploy Notifications for 2022 Board of Trustees election from Needs Discussion/Analysis to Triaged on the Growth-Team board.

After talking about this with @Keegan and scoping it with the Growth team, we've decided that we can't do this task for the coming year. The Growth team's bandwidth has been limited by being down one engineer, and since Echo is not currently built for one-off notifications, sending this particular notification would be a hack that would be difficult for the team to manage. @Mh-3110, thank you for filing this task and discussing it with us. I'm sorry we couldn't help. I leave this task with you to move it or resolve it as you see fit.

MMiller_WMF updated subscribers of T311347: Mark freshly undeleted articles as unreviewed automatically.

Hi @Kudpung -- thanks for following up on this. A volunteer wrote a patch to make this fix, and an engineer from the Growth team reviewed and merged it, so I believe this should be fixed on the wiki by Friday of next week! Please let us know if you see differently. Although the Growth team isn't always able to fit in work on PageTriage, we definitely try, and especially try to prioritize reviewing volunteer patches. Happily, that's what happened here.

Hello @Mh-3110. Thank you for filing this task. I want to ask some questions because creating one-off notifications is something that has been done only rarely. I think I remember that CentralNotice is usually used to notify editors about Board elections. Is this a new idea this year -- to send notifications? Will there also be CentralNotice?

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T308543: Allow communities to define quality gate threshold in Special:EditGrowthConfig.

I'm moving this to QA for now, but note there are other values that can be configured for add a link. Here's a list of configuration options we can easily add to the form – the current/default value for each of the options is in square brackets.

  • desired task pool size (per topic) [500]
  • minimum number of links for a task to be valid [2]
  • minimum link confidence score returned by the suggestion algorithm for a suggestion to be valid [50 %]
  • minimum time that needs to pass since last edit on the article for it to be suggested [1 day]
  • minimum/maximum size of article for it to be suggested [no restrictions].

I'm not sure whether any of those numbers is also considered quality gate-related. @Trizek-WMF @Dyolf77_WMF @KStoller-WMF @MMiller_WMF – should we include any of the above-mentioned fields to the form?

We want to prioritize this task because of multiple communities feeling overwhelmed with patrolling link edits. We want them to be able to easily control the volume.

@Sgs @Etonkovidova @Tgr -- I noticed something strange as I was testing these landing pages. I noticed that when I use a desktop browser to create an account from the mobile site, I get to the following page after account creation. This was on English Wikipedia, where I know the landing pages are not yet present. I did just by going to en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:CreateAccount without including our landing URLs. But when I went to create an account from my actual mobile device, it did not happen and things were normal. What do you make of this?

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T307902: Assess database requirements for link recommendations reading entry point.

But if we wanted to suggest people link recommendation tasks about the article they are reading at the moment (the project name for this is "entry point in reading experience"), we'd need this data for all articles.

An alternative to caching recommendations for all articles would be to fetch data on the fly. Especially when limiting the max recommendations to a value of 2 (the minimum on most wikis), getting the data is something like ~2 seconds. Presumably anything less than 10 seconds would work from a product perspective, where a user is actually reading/skimming an article before seeing that there are possible changes to make?

Also, given that this would be shown to logged-in newcomers only (who would probably also be able to opt out of this feature, I imagine), the traffic should be manageable.

MMiller_WMF moved T305097: Newcomer tasks: Copy and UI improvements the AND selection of interest topics from Incoming to Ready for Development on the Growth-Team (Current Sprint) board.

@Sgs talked about how it would be good to move this feature set to all users so that they can get the benefits, and so that we can remove code that reserves it only for campaigns. Therefore, this task is now Ready for Development. We need to make these changes first, and then we can move on to T305399, in which we'll deploy to all users in our pilot wikis. Then we'll do the analysis in T305406, and then deploy to all users in all wikis.

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T301603: Newcomer tasks: increased flexibility at post-edit dialog.

@kostajh -- thank you for checking, but there is not a concern around that. The change will happen to the treatment and control groups at the same time, so it won't affect the experiment. We'll just want to know exactly what day the change is in place so we can see whether the funnel analysis changes after.

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T304747: Newcomer task tags are not visible in Special:RecentChanges feed after VisualEditor edits.

After the fix is in production, we'll start seeing the tags in RecentChanges, but we won't see tags for edits made while this was broken, unless we run, rebuildrecentchanges.php for that time period. I can ask around to see if it is feasible to do that, but because it is potentially a huge amount of rows to update, I am not sure if it is going to be a popular idea.

As it is limited to RCs, I think we are good to let things as they are.
At big wikis, the feed is too big: no one would (or can) filter out edits being a while ago. At smaller wikis, checking RCs is more likely done entry by entry. And they are other ways to check on recent edits: watchlists, Special:Contributions, etc.

MMiller_WMF closed T305003: [testwiki-wmf.5] After Add image edit submitted, post-edit dialog suggests only Add image tasks as Invalid.

@Etonkovidova @kostajh -- thank you for bringing this up. On this ticket, we did explicitly require that the next task should be an image task. We did this because if you are in the images treatment group, we want you to intensively be using "add an image" so we can build up data. It also makes sense to me that we relaxed that requirement for "add a link", because "add a link" is no longer in an experiment, so we want it to behave like all the other tasks.

@kostajh -- just for our information, when this is fixed, will the diffs from the "bug era" show up in RecentChanges retroactively, or will it only apply for diffs made after the fix?
