Editor engagement experiments
The purpose of the Editor engagement experiments (E3) team is to find ways to attract and retain new Wikipedia editors. Rather than spending resources building products on a large scale, we test the effectiveness of our ideas using short term experiments. The team launched on April 16, 2012, and is hiring several full-time engineering positions for this team. Also see the other editor engagement projects.
The following pages hold the methodology, experimental design and results of each experiment. For technical information and UX design documentation please view our E3 hub on MediaWiki.org. For a short overview of the results of completed experiments check out this page.
