Study of editor behavior on the Teahouse Q&A board. Collaboration between @Capt_Swing and @Flipover. Goal is to understand how the behavior of Teahouse guests and hosts has changed over time. Findings can inform the design of new editor support tools and yield insights into the motivations of new editors and the challenges they face,community projects.
- Insights into the quality of service provided at the Teahouse can help us understand the long-term sustainability and effectiveness of Teahouse-like community-driven new editor support forums.
- Insights into the kinds of questions new editors ask at the Teahouse can help us understand the primary issues that new editors face, and perhaps even yield a sense of priority/proportionality between (for example) technical issues vs interpersonal struggles vs policy issues... and strategies for supporting new editors better.to the extent that these things can ever be separated on wiki ;)
