leila added a comment to T305670: Finalize the mission of the team.

@Aklapper thanks for the ping. Can you help us with creating 4 milestones for the team for FY23 (same name format as FY22's). That way I can move this and other tasks to the right lane as well.

@Aklapper thanks for the ping. We have a process now and that's sufficient for closing this task. We will make improvements as we use it.

@KFrancis I'm not sure if this will make a difference in your recommendation, however, please be aware that Ricardo has signed a contract with WMF and I expected (perhaps wrongly) that an NDA is signed through that process.

@EBernhardson I'm prepping access request for Bruno, our search research intern. Question: other than "analytics-privatedata-users", what does he need access to to be able to access search logs or other search related data? ("analytics-privatedata-users" is our go-to request for formal collaborations as that will give access to analytics clusters and webrequest logs.)

leila added a comment to T306466: Create list of current functioning and reliable search instrumentation.

@EBernhardson what about any other source we can get (any) reliable search data from at scale? For example, webrequest logs. I admit that the data in webrequest logs specifically won't be sufficient for the majority of the questions we are considerting, however, I expect it to be reliable, and we may need to pull reliable data from multiple sources and combine to get what we need (at least in the short term), so having the fuller list will be helpful.

weekly update: I participated in the Tech Steering Committee Meeting where the prioritization of requests from Product to Technology takes place. This was the second time I attended the meeting and this time I stress-tested some the (private link) draft process developed for passing Research outputs through the funnel used by the committee. Next steps are for Desiree to do a pass over the process and give her thumbs up or feedback for improvements.

Weekly update: I read the draft of the FY23-AP shared for staff feedback. Miriam did the same. We held one 45-min session and did a deep dive in the first 8 pages of it together: We documented feedback to be shared back with the APP team for this first part. We also discussed how the current draft may affect the way we prioritize work in the coming 12 months. We scheduled another session to follow up in the coming week.

Emily, thanks for the update. Regarding the idea of events in more languages, we can discuss trying another approach to: we co-define a set of standards and we give the name to a local community or organize their local edition. This has some advantages: it focuses on the distributed model of the Movement (instead of WMF Research trying to do more and more, we find ways to enable/support others to do things with us). Related to the previous point: it can scale to many languages more easily.

@Isaac we just finalized the text of the Research Report No. 4. It would be great if you can support us with porting it to the site. It seems to me we should make a decision about how to surface this content in https://research.wikimedia.org/report.html . My suggestion is:

  • Make a subpage for report No 1 called report_no_1.html or some other norm that makes sense to you.
  • Move the content of report 1 to that page.
  • Similar to recent updates in a program page add a section in report.html called past reports and put a blurb/link to Report 1 from there.

leila added a comment to T290387: Conduct research on WLM centralnotice banners.

Update:

  • I heard back from Effeietsanders and they confirmed that the WLM international team has nominated them as the 1 person who will work on the team's questions.
  • MGerlach will be Effeietsanders' point of contact for the duration of their access and research.
  • I have added the Research tag to this task so we don't lose track of it on our team's end.
  • MGerlach is coordinating the next steps with Effeietsanders over email. Sub-tasks may be created for this task to track that work or not. I will leave that decision to MGerlach and Effeietsanders.
  • To all other teams/projects: feel free to remove your tags if this task is no longer of interest to you. I didn't touch existing tags. :)
