Comments from I JethroBT (WMF)[edit]

Hi Qono, thanks for this submission. Is this idea something you are considering working on? The notion of using ORES to evaluate improvements in article quality is an interesting approach to looking at community health; contributors should be able to work productively in a healthy project, and improvements in article quality at a broad scale can be one way to assess that. I understand that you'll need to have a organized team to conduct this work. Have you started to reach out to some of the people you mentioned in this idea? Also, would you consider applying for funding through a Rapid Grant to support this work, or do you think funding will not be necessary? I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 27 September 2018 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I JethroBT (WMF). Sorry for not getting back to you before now, I hadn't seen your comment. I would love to make this proposal happen, but I don't really know where to start. I don't have any coding experience, so my contributions would be limited to a coordination role. I would be interested in applying for funding if I had a better sense of how to move forward, but I'm honestly not sure what I should do to move this ahead. Your advice here is welcome. Thanks for your consideration. Qono (talk) 20:20, 25 July 2019 (UTC)Reply
@Qono: Hey Qono, thanks for your repsonse. To start, I'd suggest contacting the people you named in the Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project? section to see if they are interested in supporting this work and what skills they may be able to offer. This way you'll know what kind of team you can build and what skills you might still need from others. I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 15:29, 29 July 2019 (UTC)Reply
