When the members of Women in Red write a new article for wikipedia.org they insert it to a list of newly created articles, by hand. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Women/Women_in_Red/Metrics
This can be automated. Options for automatically generated lists:
- You start with a list of redlinks, and as articles on the list are created, a counter goes up and a newly created articles list is updated.
- When a WikiProject member creates an article, it is added to a list of new articles created by WikiProject members
- When a new article is tagged by a WikiProject,ey use AlexNewArtBot to come up with list of new pages in the category; it shows up in a list of new articles created under the scope of the WikiProject (also useful as a curation tool)they need to sort who is a woman and who isn't
TheseThis list generation should be automated. The lists would feed toward a metrics report (hence the /Metrics subpage name). These metrics reports can be simple counters that increment as more work is done, or they can measure progress toward a certain goal.
Strategy: Use Category:Women and subcategories to determine scope (join categorylinks + revision) and to see what pages are created in what month. Have a daily new article bot report that gets list of possible new articles about women. Have users add categories to those articles and allow them to remove false positives from the list (also have articles since categorized removed from the list). If possible we should have this metric retroactively; or they can measure progress toward a certain goalI want to see if Women in Red had an impact on the rate of article creation.
So basically what we need is an automated metrics report + productized new article bot for WikiProject triaging purposes.
