@leila, @Isaac a couple of questions:

  1. Should the free form input be optional, i.e. some surveys can have it, if they want?

@bmansurov in the case of the specific survey we're talking about: we want to always put it as the last option.

@bmansurov correct. currently the first question in the task description. (being able to add an "other" option with a free form text box in front of it where the respondent can enter text in.)

@Miriam, thanks for expanding the analysis in T222078#5216328 . You and I talked about the results you have in this task and what recommendations we can have based on what we have learned from this analysis. I'll summarize them below:

  • We see a significant and sustained lift in Wikipedia unique device count in countries that are served via Singapore data-center after the switch.

@bmansurov it would be great if you can prioritize this task on your end. That can unblock us from achieving the goal we set for this quarter and help us get a better sense of editor gender distributions. :)

@Miriam Thanks for doing this analysis. Based on what we discussed on Thursday, it would be great if you can look at some of the South American countries with internet growths similar to Asia and see if the patterns you see (for unique device growth) can be similarly explained. If the patterns are different, we have a conclusion to make here with some modest signals.
