w:Wikipedia:Expert help[edit]

So I recently created w:Wikipedia:Expert help which aims to provide help with networking experts and Wikipedians seeking experts. Content of the page (especially the "Ways to improve the help requester<->expert interface" section) is probably relevant here (and vice-versa).

I'm not sure if this should be moved to the /Meta page. Anyways I'd be interested to hear what you think of it and whether some content of it might be, in some shape or form, be relevant here...

For instance there might be specific methods to implement the "ways to improve the help requester<->expert interface" that might be relevant here. Or there could be some GUI overlays, notification systems or alike for the already existing relevant category systems described there.

@Fixuture: I think this project page and some of your suggested improvements are a really good fit for the campaign-- connecting contributors to experts can be a really productive way to improve the quality of article content, for instance. Do you need help moving the idea into the campaign? I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 20:48, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Wrap up of "external knowledge networks" grant review period[edit]

There was an Inspire campaign in February 2017 called "external knowledge networks". There was a schedule posted somewhere, but now that I look, I cannot find it. I thought it was due to report results last week. Is that the case? It seems like grades are not yet posted. Is there an update? Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 15:22, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
