MMiller_WMF updated subscribers of T216674: NewPagesFeed not working when sorted oldest first.

@SBisson @kostajh @Catrope -- I am able to reproduce this issue. I'm tagging you in case the problem and solution are immediately obvious to you. We can discuss this in an upcoming team meeting.

@SBisson -- I think that having those two separate checkboxes could be okay. If we do it like that, I think I would want the language for the two to be:

MMiller_WMF added a project to T216672: EditorJourney and Welcome Survey: second report: Product-Analytics.

Now that the help panel has been deployed for five weeks, we should have enough data to run the analysis for the activation experiment. Discussed with @nettrom_WMF today that this is a current priority.

@nettrom_WMF -- EditorJourney was deployed in Vietnamese on Jan 16 and the welcome survey was deployed on Jan 24. Could we use the period in between to get a sense of the abandonment rate of users who don't get a survey (even though it's not a real A/B test because of the temporal change?)

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T215666: Help panel: deploy on Vietnamese Wikipedia.

@Trizek-WMF -- where did you list the five help links supplied by the community? I don't see it on this task -- maybe it is listed somewhere else?

MMiller_WMF added a comment to T215665: Emailability: Improve verification email.

Thanks, @Catrope. It's been so long since I created my English Wikipedia and Mediawiki.org accounts that I forgot that those confirmation emails are different. Since the technology exists for customizing the content, and since those two wikis don't include any mention of IP addresses, I think that makes it seem like we wouldn't be missing anything major by doing the work in this task.

Wed, Feb 20, 11:53 PM · Growth-Team (Current Sprint)
MMiller_WMF added a comment to T159837: Introduce confirmation step if user tries to register without email.

Thanks, @Izno. Enough time has passed since my comment that our team agrees -- there's no reason not to ask for email in multiple places (unless it gets to the point where it is annoying to the user). It turns out, though, in our welcome survey that few users actually add their emails.

@kostajh -- I think it would be fine to redact instead of obfuscate. I don't imagine that we will care to know whether a newcomer is repeatedly opening the help panel on the same page. We would also be letting go of knowing on which help pages the newcomers open the help panel -- but we can use EditorJourney to know that for the first 24 hours. @nettrom_WMF, what do you think?
