@T Cells: Can we translate this page? --ToprakM 09:53, 17 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

@ToprakM:, I have to do the proofreading based on a review together with User:T Cells. I expect this will be within the day, possibly only tomorrow. Watch for an update when the translation source will be approved. -- Deborahjay (talk) 12:46, 17 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Reviewed per participating communities[edit]

After comparing this page with the presently signed-up Participating Communities for 2021, the following require resolution:

Participating community name mismatch for same hashtag mismatch
  • 42 - Tamazight (Algeria) has hashtag #WPWPDZ
  • The same hashtag #WPWPDZ is listed for Algeria on this page, Line 20
Signed up in Participating Communities, missing hashtag
  • 27 - Papiamentu (possibly as the Caribbean UG?) #WPWPWGC
  • 36 - Sundanese (independent of Indonesia)#WPWPSUN
  • 39 - Balinese #WPWPBAN

Hello User:Deborahjay and thanks for this information. We have not received any response from the contact persons from Javanese and Sundanese communities. They signed up without providing any contact details and I have left a message on their talk page but no response yet. I included in the table the hashtags for participants in 2020 but who have not signed up this year because they may still sign up before or during the campaign. All other issues have now been resolved. I apologize for the slow response. T CellsTalk 14:02, 21 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Also tag when bad images are removed[edit]

En.wikipedia has had a rash of unsuitable images added: either images that don't show the subject (e.g., a still of a director's movie), images that duplicate content already on the page, or images that violate the Manual of Style (e.g., placement above the infobox). Does it skew the metrics if the reverts are also tagged? C.Fred (talk) 20:58, 25 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Yeah, this is insane seeing images barely related to the topic. I would be for asking moderation of these types of edits as it seems to be (sadly) mostly disruptive editing. I would want to suggest a complete revamp of this campaign for future years. The Grid (talk) 22:47, 26 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
Hello colleagues (User:C.Fred and User:The Grid) and thanks for the feedback. They are really helpful. We acknowledge that new campaigns that attract new editors could be very problematic. From what we could see, a vast majority of users who are being disruptive are new users. The English Wikipedia is a high traffic Wikipedia and we agreed that contributions from new editors should be moderated in some ways. We are supportive of ProcrastinatingReader's recommendations and we strongly believe that if the recommendations are implemented, it would be a net positive. Before the start of the campaign, we asked local organizers to help with patrolling recent changes and do cleanup but they might not be doing that daily. We will send another reminder to them this week. We have so much respect for the English Wikipedia community and we will continue to use your feedback to improve the campaign. To answer Fred's question directly; the number of reversed contributions for a particular user is visible but it may be difficult to know the actual pages where the revision occurred. Since it's reversed, it may not be necessary to check the actual pages where the revision occurred as reversed contributions do not count. Best regards. T CellsTalk 06:15, 29 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
UPDATE from the organizing team (Communities coordinator with Coordinator User:T Cells) following an international brainstorming session on the post-campaign review process: due to the unprecedented volume of edits, possible further steps to ensure quality were suggested:
  • Extending the date of jury reviewing (15 December), then tabulating and announcing the campaign results (31 December).
  • Focused review of the ten (20, 50) most active participants and ten (20, 50) communities or language projects by hashtag receiving the most new content. This will be carried out by jury volunteers aided by a "text team" (see below)
  • Creating the hashtag #WPWPFIX for use by reviewers in edit summaries, e.g.:
    • #WPWPFIX photo rejected
    • #WPWPFIX caption texts
  • Recruiting a "text team" of reviewers in the WP language projects with most activity (by tabulated hashtags) to focus on captions: presence vs absence, and use of local language.
Within days of this writing, the participating community heads will be notified by email of these improved guidelines and relevant content added to the Meta page for WPWP2021. Immediate follow-up involves engaging with the campaign jurors and forming the text teams for the review process. We see all these steps as addressing the need to ensure quality of content for the campaign, and that this justifies the additional time and volunteer engagement we seek. -- Deborahjay (talk) 13:45, 8 October 2021 (UTC)Reply
