From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

We're building a tool to help article creators and reviewers make better decisions, and we need your help! We're looking for volunteers to decide if sample article topics are notable or not. We'll use these decisions to train an automated classifier that will score new articles based on how notable it thinks they're likely to be. This is part of an Individual Engagement Grant: Grants:IEG/Automated Notability Detection.

If you're interested, please sign up below and take a look at the hand-coding form to get an idea of what you'll be doing. We'll let you know as soon as we're ready for you to start. Comments and suggestions are very welcome!Bluma.Gelley (talk) 07:33, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Hand-Coding Form[edit]

Here's a screenshot of the form we'll be asking you to fill out. We'll give you an article title accompanied by some text from the article, and ask you to answer the two questions on the form.Bluma.Gelley (talk) 01:51, 8 September 2015 (UTC) Wikilabels.screenshot of notability campaign


@Bluma.Gelley: Where is the coding form? JbhTalk 21:29, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Second that. Also, Bluma.Gelley please notify me of updates via my talk page on as I do not visit Meta often. Thanks! VQuakr (talk) 17:56, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
@Jbhunley: I've posted the hand-coding form. Sorry for the delay - we had some technical issues. Thanks! Bluma.Gelley (talk) 01:52, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. This looks like it will be an interesting project! JbhTalk 02:24, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Cool! Can you please add either a "marginal" radio button under the "is this subject notable?" question or give an option to skip the article instance if it is too close to call? VQuakr (talk) 04:02, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
Nice idea. Thanks! Bluma.Gelley (talk) 16:00, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
{{User:VQuakr]], I added the option you suggested to the next version of the form that will be used for the actual coding. Thanks! Bluma.Gelley (talk) 03:27, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
