Nice to hear about you working for WMF. --Nemo 20:58, 28 April 2018 (UTC)Reply


This is a gentle nudge to say that I'd love to have an updated version of Research:Screening WikiProject Medicine articles for quality/Stub prediction table. WhatamIdoing (talk) 17:05, 11 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

I’ve updated the table with the most recent predictions. To keep the list shorter, I limited it to those where the “not a stub” probability is more than 50%. Although that doesn’t remove ‘'all’’ the stubs, it does reduce the list considerably. Let me know how it works, I can also update my code to be a little smarter next time around and instead only show articles that are predicted to be C-class or higher. Nettrom (talk) 14:03, 12 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
It's working pretty well, with the expected problems (e.g., ORES' reliance on the number of bytes instead of readable prose). Thank you for removing the less certain ones; the list is already huge. I'm focusing on the C-class and higher ones to start.
The GA folks updated their rules earlier this year to essentially demand an inline citation at the end of each paragraph (excepting the usual ==Plot summary== sections and paragraphs that summarize the rest of the article, especially the introduction). This means that the data for GAs is outdated, though I might not suggest refreshing that for another year, so that more GAs can get adopted under the new standard and others will get de-listed because of it, and you'll have a more useful dataset (assuming that ORES is worth updating, given its place in the software life cycle). I'm hoping that B-class will consequently stabilize on a standard of at least one citation per ==Section==, though there are raters who have pushed for years to have B-class follow the (new) GA standard of one citation per paragraph. For my purpose today, none of this matters, because all "B-class and higher" ratings are just B-class at best, because that's the highest that a single editor can rate anything, but it might be something worth looking at.
BTW, if you are keeping a list of research projects that could be fun if you stumbled across a handful of spare grad students, then comparing the use of inline citations at enwiki, dewiki, and frwiki (=the three biggest Wikipedias) might produce interesting results. The German-language Wikipedia is much more sparing with citations than enwiki. WhatamIdoing (talk) 01:18, 13 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
