Just noting here that I'm looking forward to seeing the results from this
year's program evaluation reporting, since this information will be useful
for setting goals for projects and campaigns.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Quarterly reviews of high priority WMF initiatives

 Hi folks,

 to increase accountability and create more opportunities for course
 corrections and resourcing adjustments as necessary, Sue's asked me
 and Howie Fung to set up a quarterly project evaluation process,
 starting with our highest priority initiatives. These are, according
 to Sue's narrowing focus recommendations which were approved by the
 Board [1]:

 - Visual Editor
 - Mobile (mobile contributions + Wikipedia Zero)
 - Editor Engagement (also known as the E2 and E3 teams)
 - Funds Dissemination Committe and expanded grant-making capacity

 I'm proposing the following initial schedule:

 January:
 - Editor Engagement Experiments

 February:
 - Visual Editor
 - Mobile (Contribs + Zero)

 March:
 - Editor Engagement Features (Echo, Flow projects)
 - Funds Dissemination Committee

 We’ll try doing this on the same day or adjacent to the monthly
 metrics meetings [2], since the team(s) will give a presentation on
 their recent progress, which will help set some context that would
 otherwise need to be covered in the quarterly review itself. This will
 also create open opportunities for feedback and questions.

 My goal is to do this in a manner where even though the quarterly
 review meetings themselves are internal, the outcomes are captured as
 meeting minutes and shared publicly, which is why I'm starting this
 discussion on a public list as well. I've created a wiki page here
 which we can use to discuss the concept further:

 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Metrics_and_activities_meetings/Quarterly_reviews

 The internal review will, at minimum, include:

 Sue Gardner
 myself
 Howie Fung
 Team members and relevant director(s)
 Designated minute-taker

 So for example, for Visual Editor, the review team would be the Visual
 Editor / Parsoid teams, Sue, me, Howie, Terry, and a minute-taker.

 I imagine the structure of the review roughly as follows, with a
 duration of about 2 1/2 hours divided into 25-30 minute blocks:

 - Brief team intro and recap of team's activities through the quarter,
 compared with goals
 - Drill into goals and targets: Did we achieve what we said we would?
 - Review of challenges, blockers and successes
 - Discussion of proposed changes (e.g. resourcing, targets) and other
 action items
 - Buffer time, debriefing

 Once again, the primary purpose of these reviews is to create improved
 structures for internal accountability, escalation points in cases
 where serious changes are necessary, and transparency to the world.

 In addition to these priority initiatives, my recommendation would be
 to conduct quarterly reviews for any activity that requires more than
 a set amount of resources (people/dollars). These additional reviews
 may however be conducted in a more lightweight manner and internally
 to the departments. We’re slowly getting into that habit in
 engineering.

 As we pilot this process, the format of the high priority reviews can
 help inform and support reviews across the organization.

 Feedback and questions are appreciated.

 All best,
 Erik

[Wikimedia-l] Draft structure for the new WMF quarterly reports (feedback welcome)

2015-02-05 Thread Tilman Bayer
Hi everyone,

as detailed by Erik earlier [1], the Foundation is changing its
reporting from the monthly cycle that has been in place since 2008 to
a quarterly rhythm. A main reason being to better align it with the
quarterly planning and goalsetting process that has been extended to
the entire organization since Lila took the helm. The first of these
new quarterly reports is set to come out on February 15, and while the
content is being filled out over the next week, we wanted to provide
an opportunity for the entire community to comment on the planned
structure.

The main objectives and design principles for this report are:

* Accountability: Help our movement and our supporters understand how
we spend our effort, and what we accomplish.
* Learning together: Highlight important internal  external data,
trends and lessons.
* Presentable: Anyone, from volunteer to the executive director,
should be able to present the work of the WMF using this report.
* Reasonable effort: Pull as much as possible from existing sources,
e.g., quarterly review slide decks  minutes.

We have decided that this iteration of the new report will appear in
the format of a slide deck suitable for a 90 minute presentation,
which means that it will need to focus on the highest priorities in
each area, linking to the quarterly review documentation and other
material for further detail.

See the mockup (linked below) for the intended structure, which
includes the following sections:
*Key metrics (expanding the Data and Trends section of the previous
monthly reports, adding a red/green/yellow indicator to provide
context on whether each number is seen as concerning, positive or
neutral), and overall insights/takeaways from this quarter
For each priority work area:
*What we said (previously set goals) and what we did (results).
*What we learned (how should the results impact the work going
forward? What insights can the Foundation or the movement take away?)
and concluding with:
*What's next (excerpt of the highest priority goals for the next quarter)

The draft structure (with mocked up content - not the actual report
yet) can be found here:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_Foundation_reports

Please leave comments there. We will try to take them into account
while tweaking the structure further, and of course, this being the
first iteration, we are likely to make many further changes for the
next quarterly report.

Note: This report is going to cover the second quarter of the
Foundation's fiscal year (October-December 2014). The remaining
monthly reports under the old model until September have all been
published by now, you can find them at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_reports .

[Wikimedia-l] Who are the nicest people on our projects ?

2015-02-05 Thread
Hi,

After reading an interesting related discussion on GenderGap, I have
queried the top 10 users of the thanks feature last month, on both the
English Wikipedia and Commons. Snapshot image attached and report link
below.

Perhaps someone might think of a suitable barnstar and award these
folks for being nice? :-)

Link: 
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:F%C3%A6/sandboxoldid=149050523

P.S. This is a long query to run, taking 20 to 30 minutes due to the
nature of the logging tables. However if someone wanted to make a
monthly summary on-wiki somewhere, part of an active be nice
campaign, I would be happy to set up an automated monthly report (if
someone discovers this is already reported somewhere, that's cool we
can use that).

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Education Extension

2015-02-05 Thread Anna Koval
Dear Pine,

Thanks for your question.

I think that the idea of merging Outreach into Meta would probably benefit
from some discussion among the users of both wikis, to see if such a change
would work for them. :)

For instance, the Meta community would need to be comfortable with folding
in functionaries from Outreach -- just as Outreach functionaries would need
to be comfortable with Meta functionaries operating in Outreach space --
unless there is some technical way to restrict administrators to only those
projects for which they were chosen.

Obviously, either way, if such a merger happened, we would need to maintain
many redirects, since printed documents
https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/Brochures refer to specific
pages within Outreach -- and we would have to make sure to maintain those
redirects if pages on Meta were moved.

I don't know all of the history behind why Outreach and Meta are separate,
since it predates my work in the movement. What matters to me, personally,
is best coordination of the work, wherever that happens.

Your thoughts on this are welcome over at the Outreach wiki village pump.

Kind regards,

Anna

   If it works for you, however, it can hopefully scale. I suggest that
 you

 Is there a way to know how many people use Wikipedia per interface
 language?


 No.

  Said in other words, I want to know how many people display the Wikimedia
 project interface in the different version of German and Alemannisch.


 Until https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T58464 is fixed (hopefully in
 this decade), the requests with non-default language are negligible.* What
 makes you think that you need such a level of precision and
 https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesPageViewsMonthlyCombined.htm is not
 enough?

 Once the use case for such precise numbers is clarified, probably we can
 extract exact data with a method similar to https://phabricator.wikimedia.
 org/T65416 after it's fixed (hopefully this year; the bug has made
 localisation and new subdomain requests practically impossible or
 unfeasible in dozens languages, for many months now).

 Nemo

 (*) Even considering the sum of requests with uselang parameter** and of
 registered users with a non-default language choice in preferences.
 (**) Even in Commons, despite all the uselang-specific incoming links and
 the language selection gadget.

This is interesting stuff, Fae - thanks for sharing, and for doing all the

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Who are the nicest people on our projects ?

Who was most thanked?

 Hi,

 After reading an interesting related discussion on GenderGap, I have
 queried the top 10 users of the thanks feature last month, on both the
 English Wikipedia and Commons. Snapshot image attached and report link
 below.

 Perhaps someone might think of a suitable barnstar and award these
 folks for being nice? :-)

 P.S. This is a long query to run, taking 20 to 30 minutes due to the
 nature of the logging tables. However if someone wanted to make a
 monthly summary on-wiki somewhere, part of an active be nice
 campaign, I would be happy to set up an automated monthly report (if
 someone discovers this is already reported somewhere, that's cool we
 can use that).

A good idea! I think thanks divided by edit count would be nice to see,
too - that way power users and regular users can be compared!

 This is interesting stuff, Fae - thanks for sharing, and for doing all the
 legwork to produce the report.  It's a much more interesting metric than a
 lot of others that get collected!  Perhaps colleagues on other projects
 might want to borrow the script and see the results there.

 I'll admit to sharing Rich's curiosity about who was most thanked.

Luckily we can find out who was thanked too, it takes the same time to
run. Data below and link for updated report (which is on wikitech due
to WMF server outage for main projects at the time of writing).

Extending to other wikis is not a problem, we just use the relevant
wiki-name of the tables, or call on it when we go into MySQL (and then
the script does not need to be edited). It should be possible to do a
nice report that does this for all active wikis; once a month is
enough. I have published the SQL below for those technically minded.
If someone wants to pick this up, that's cool. If left to me it may
take a couple of months to polish off due to my backlog. My other
maintained reports are mostly listed at

Top 10 *most thanked* users in Jan 2015:

27,  Be..anyone
26,  Brackenheim
22,  ArionEstar
21,  Marcus_Cyron

SQL:
// Top 10 thanks givers in a month
SELECT log_user_text, count(log_action)
FROM logging_userindex
WHERE log_action=thank
  AND LEFT(log_timestamp,6)=201501
GROUP BY log_user_text
ORDER BY count(log_action) DESC
LIMIT 10;

// Top 10 thanked people in a month
SELECT log_title, count(log_action)
FROM logging_userindex
WHERE log_action=thank
  AND LEFT(log_timestamp,6)=201501
GROUP BY log_title
ORDER BY count(log_action) DESC
LIMIT 10;

P.S. I would be cautious about interpretation. I am tempted to
automate some thanking, just for my name to float in the top 10 and
surprise everyone. ;-)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Most obnoxious banner yet

Risker, 16/01/2015 18:44:

We now have at least a partial understanding of the reason the fundraising
campaign was extended, which is found in the minutes of the Board of
Trustees meeting of November 2014.[1]

Board members asked Lila and Lisa to consider and evaluate ways to raise
additional revenue to increase the reserve for future needs of the
organization and movement, including the possibility of adjustments in
fundraising methods as appropriate. 

[1]
https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Minutes/2014-11-21#Executive_Update_from_Fundraising


I still don't understand how asking to consider and evaluate can 
override an explicit board resolution which established very different 
targets. What steps were taken exactly, which legally authorised such 
increase in income?

  Is there a way to know how many people use Wikipedia per interface
  language?
 
 
  No.
 
   Said in other words, I want to know how many people display the
 Wikimedia
  project interface in the different version of German and Alemannisch.
 
 
  Until https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T58464 is fixed (hopefully in
  this decade), the requests with non-default language are negligible.*
 What
  makes you think that you need such a level of precision and
  https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesPageViewsMonthlyCombined.htm is not
  enough?
 
  Once the use case for such precise numbers is clarified, probably we can
  extract exact data with a method similar to
 https://phabricator.wikimedia.
  org/T65416 after it's fixed (hopefully this year; the bug has made
  localisation and new subdomain requests practically impossible or
  unfeasible in dozens languages, for many months now).
 
  Nemo
 
  (*) Even considering the sum of requests with uselang parameter** and of
  registered users with a non-default language choice in preferences.
  (**) Even in Commons, despite all the uselang-specific incoming links and
  the language selection gadget.
