I've noticed that you've subscribed your home wiki to get updates about Growth team projects. Thank you!
We are considering new features to build, that could retain new editors in mid-size Wikipedias. We will be testing new ideas in Czech and Korean Wikipedias, and then we'll talk to more communities (especially yours!) about adopting the ideas that work well.
"Declined Declined data is stale. Feel free to re-file with new accounts if needed --Alaa :)..! 12:45, 12 September 2018 (UTC)" .
Does this mean that Check User cannot be performed at all? What is "fresh data"? I didnt know that data can decay just as vegetables... What kind of fresh data would you need? user:Skylax30 is active on en.WP and you can have some data from over there. I am disappointed the check-user was not performed. Heavy blocks have been implemented, just because the humor of two users (Skylax30 and user:Exspell) is the same. Can I file a new request for checking users Skylax30 and Exspell? Can we work out a solution? I 'd like to tag @Chalk19 and Glucken123:. Thanks. Τζερόνυμο (talk) 20:17, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Dear steward, Please read my explanation thoroughly. It is about an inexorable situation in the Georgian Wikipedia, the long-established. Every attempt to solve the problem locally fails again and again. So, please, do not be indifferent.
The requests are extraordinary, so I do not write on a general page, but personally.
Best regards, Deu. 17:59, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Welcome to the second newsletter for the new Growth team!
The Growth Team's objective is to work on software changes that help retain new contributors in mid-size Wikimedia projects.
Our plan for the next quarter is ready
After consulting with many communities on the best ways to increase retention, we will focus during the next 3 months on these projects:
Understanding first day: to see what new editors do right after creating their accounts. We will be careful with user privacy, and we hope to share initial results in December.
Personalized first day: this idea will also help us learn a lot about new editors by adding some optional questions to the new editor’s registration process. We hope to share initial results in December.
Focus on help desk: we plan to invite or redirect people to the local help desks where they can ask questions to help them make their first edits. We hope to have an initial experiment running in December.
