Neil_P._Quinn_WMF added a comment to T183955: Be able to choose an appropriate response format for a microsurvey question.

Because of the costs. As soon as you say "Here's an empty field, and you can type whatever you want in it", then you have to either keep the data hidden (which is not transparent) or you have to spend time removing personally identifying information (which is expensive – volunteer time, especially for people who understand privacy, is extremely valuable).

The burden created by free-form fields is one of the reasons that http://mediawiki.org/wiki/AFTv5 was killed.

Neil_P._Quinn_WMF added a comment to T159750: E-mail for people in different OIT LDAP object unit .

@bbogaert, there are multiple uses for a limited-access OU (strategy contractors, other temporary contractors with different situations, Qualtrics email sending), so I think it makes more sense to have a generic OU and deal with changing situations by moving accounts between OUs. That way, we don't ask Ops to replicate a new OU every time a new use case comes up.

It's also a bit hard to claim that the reliability of the underlying data doesn't matter to your analysis

The underlying data is the user preferences that are actually operational now, which these queries will accurately reflect. If you think more remediation for the preferences corruption needs to be done, you can take that discussion to the engineers and ops folks who work in that area. As far as I can tell, they disagree with you, and to be honest I trust them more.

Yep, those queries would still work if you wanted to do it yourself. A few notes:

  • The query for creating the intermediate table pulls from my editor-month table. I'm still keeping that updated, so that's not an issue.
  • You'd need to install the multiquery package.
  • I took the multiquery output and manually adjusted it in a spreadsheet to total across wikis and assign users with deactivated skins set to Vector. If I were doing it again, I'd automate that and put it in a Jupyter notebook so it was trival to rerun.
