Hi, I requested administrator access for permanently, not only for 6 months in Zazaki Wikipedia. The community voted it as permanently, achieved consensus to make me admin permanently. Because there is no active admin in Zazaki Wikipedia. May you correct it please?. Best regards. Vuzorg (talk) 10:10, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello @Vuzorg:. I can't found any things about permanent/temporary on your nomination, and we don't give permanent adminship in communities with less than 50 active users and 2 sysops (inactive). Also, it's your first nomination --Alaa :)..! 13:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, but as you say there is a little community in Zazaki Wikipedia and there are two inactive sysops, so there needs to be an active sysop. The period of 6 months is really short to gather all users again to vote on sysopship. It may be 1 year at least. Can't i get it for one year at least? Vuzorg (talk) 20:43, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello Alaa, I am from zhwiki and I see that account was globally locked by you and enwiki sysop told me you may have run a xwiki checkuser on him. For another sock of IGBA was found at zhwiki, I come here to ask if you could give me some information about IGBA, thanks.--Hamish 19:11, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
@Hamish: I think Alaa should have done that global lock due to my SRG report here. Since one more sock is being found, I think a sleeper check will be worthwhile should more locks be needed. I think I'll file a SRCU request and could Alaa respond there. Thanks very much. --Cohaf (talk) 19:21, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
The Growth team's objective is to work on software changes that help retain new contributors in mid-size Wikimedia projects.
Growth team features are now fully deployed in Arabic Wikipedia and Basque Wikipedia (along with Czech, Korean, and Vietnamese Wikipedias). If your community is enthusiastic about welcoming newcomers, we encourage you to contact us so that we can verify together if your wiki is eligible. Then, go through the checklist to start the process of configuring the features.
We have deployed features that help newcomers find their newcomer homepage. These features were successful, and more than doubled the number of newcomers who find their homepage. In Czech Wikipedia, 72% of newcomers visit their homepage and in Korean Wikipedia, 49% of newcomers visit their homepage.
Several members of the Growth team attended Wikimania in Stockholm. We helped organize a conference track around Community Growth, presented about our team's work, and had many conversations with community members from around the world.
How to match to interests? Research shows that users are more likely to work on articles that are related to their interests. We are currently prototyping methods to ask newcomers their interests and then find articles that match.
How to guide the newcomer? Once a newcomer has selected a recommended article, they will need guidance on how to complete the edit. We have decided to use the help panel to provide that guidance while the newcomer edits.
We are currently engineering on this feature, and we recently published notes from user tests that give mostly positive feedback.
You can explore the design for newcomer tasks in these interactive mockups. We hope to hear from you about your thoughts on the project talk page. Do you think this could be helpful for newcomers? What are we missing?
