Sam Oyeyele[edit]

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - Hi! I'm on the Foundation's Communications team, primarily tasked with running the Wikimedia Blog. We'd like to showcase a profile we published about Wikipedia editor Sam Oyeyele, targeted to a suitably low percentage of anonymous users/casual readers. We see this as a way of educating these people on how the Wikimedia movement is run by volunteers, putting a human face on some of the changes being made every day, and hope to run more banners of this variety (to, again, low percentages of readers) in the future should this prove successful.

Metrics - This is a first experiment, so we don't yet have target metrics, but we'll be keeping an eye on pageviews that come via the banner. We're hoping that this trial will allow us to come up with target metrics for future banners of this type. (Or it may not—these sorts of banners will be targeted to different geographical areas, and so they may not end up being directly comparable. We'll see.)

What banner(s) will you use? What will be your landing page?[edit]

Banners - The banners will A/B test two different wordings:
  • Meet an editor: Sam Oyeyele writes Nigerian cinema into Wikipedia (65)
  • Meet Sam. He writes about Nigerian cinema on Wikipedia. (56)

I'm working with other members of the Foundation's Communications team and Joe Seddon on the exact design, which we're hoping to standardize to ease overhead.

Romaine will set up the banner. The traffic of the banner will be limited to maximum of 5 shows per visitor. Romaine (talk) 05:13, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

@Romaine: is this meant to run for five months? That is extremely long. Even with limiting impressions per user thats an excessively long campaign. Would you be intending to run the campaign at a lower traffic percentage? Seddon (WMF) (talk) 12:21, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
The photo contest runs for a long time (not my decision). I intend to have maximum of 5 shows per visitor, as that would mean anyone can learn about the contest and after that they do not see the banner any more. Romaine (talk) 13:53, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Given that people often use at least three devices (work pc, home pc, a phone), sometimes more, the number of shows per person would actually be bigger. Would it be possible to limit it by the traffic %? I personally think that low impression diet plus low traffic percentage, e.g. 10% is good enough to make a several months banner campaign bearable, but we must understand that this is still strictly speaking a violation of banner usage guidelines and is just a smaller evil comparing to other ways to put a banner like SiteNotice is. Another option I see is to put traffic even lower for most of the campaign, e.g. 5% or so, but provide several time spans of like 3 days each of high traffic percentage synchronised in time with usage of other means of communication, e.g. Facebook ads, posts by from the Flemish government media resources, TV interview broadcasts, etc. --Base (talk) 23:13, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Or alternatively running higher one week stints through out the period? Run for a week at like 50%. Bring down for a week and repeat? Seddon (WMF) (talk) 11:27, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

We can use the banner from last year (r2) or we build completly a new one. --Steinsplitter (talk) 06:24, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

@Sahaquiel9102: - Currently I am inclined to decline this request. This is a very niche topic for such a large campaign and not appropriate for central notice. You need to:

  • Consider other outreach methods such as talk page messages, mailing list posts. Partnering with other chapters to tap into their member bases etc.
  • Start discussions on all target language projects.
  • Provide location lists similar to that of Wiki Loves Monuments for a start.
  • Only target countries where you have a list of targets.

Regards Seddon (WMF) (talk) 22:58, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Seddon! We do have a list of monuments Commons:Wiki_Loves_ZEOs_2018/Listaro. As you can see, the targets are all over the world (and in some cases even beyond it, in space). Start a discussion in other language projects wouldn't be so effective. We also are seeking for new people not engaged with the movement to invite them join us. That's why I find your options not so good for us. Sahaquiel9102 (talk) 00:51, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Approved Approved for eo.wiki only. For other languages, there must be coordination with both the languages communities and local affiliates. Seddon (WMF) (talk) 04:43, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
