Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fundraising testing

2013-02-27 Thread Megan Hernandez
Hi all,

We have another update on fundraising testing.  We have been testing at low
levels for almost three weeks.  We are preparing to increase the percentage
for a 24-hour test so all anonymous readers in the countries and languages
where we are running campaigns will see a banner (just 1 banner
impression).  If a reader has already seen one banner over the past three
weeks of testing, they should not see another banner during the 24-hour
test.  The test is set to start at 18:00 UTC on Wednesday, February 27 and
will run worldwide, excluding the countries where banners already ran in
December 2012 (US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France,
Switzerland).

Again, hiding banners from readers who have already seen a banner is new
for us and our goal is to minimize the number of banners our users see.  If
you read Wikipedia anonymously and see more than one banner, please let us
know on the fundraising meta talk page:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Fundraising_2013

We are also testing out new translations and donation pages in many many
countries, so if you see any errors or have any feedback, it'd really help
us out if you'd send it to us:

Thanks everyone,

Megan

 Hi everyone,

 We've been testing banners at a low level for about two weeks now.  We've
 been showing just one banner impression to 5% of anonymous users (excluding
 the 5 countries where banners ran in December: US, UK, Canada, Australia,
 and New Zealand).

 Hiding banners after one impression is new for us, and any feedback we can
 get on how it's working will really help us. We are trying to minimize the
 number of banners our users see each year.

 If you visit Wikipedia anonymously (and you're outside of the 5 English
 countries), have you seen any fundraising banners in the last two weeks?
  If so, how many times have you seen a banner?

 Thanks for your help!

 Megan

 Hi all,

 We wanted to let you know the fundraising team is starting up testing in
 February.  We're starting at low levels, so most people will not even
 notice banners to start with.  5% of anonymous users will see a banner just
 one time.  We are not showing any banners to logged in users.

 There was an announcement in November about us splitting up the
 fundraiser this year.  Just a very quick recap: We ran the end-of-year
 campaign in November and December in the top 5 English-speaking countries
 (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand).  The campaign was successful
 and we were able to take the banners down a few weeks ahead of schedule:

 We are now working on starting up testing in countries that were not
 included in the end-of-year campaign.  We'll be working on translations and
 optimizing our donation pages in many countries over the coming months.

 We will post a report of the year-end campaign with much more detailed
 information and will send a note to this mailing list when it's available.

 We always need help making improvements in different countries and
 languages.  If you have any suggestions, please do leave us a note on the
 fundraising meta discussion page:
 http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Fundraising_2013

 Thanks!

 Megan

James,

It hasn't been deleted; it's just broken and we haven't had time to fix it.
If you'd like I can provide a dump of the aggregated data that went into
creating it. Ideally we would be providing the data via Limn, but that
hasn't happened yet due to where the data lives.

I saved a copy of the graph, and would much rather see the results of
this year's testing first.
