> Hi all,
> Join the Research Team at the Wikimedia Foundation  for their monthly
> Office hours on 2020-12-01 at 17:00-18:00 PM UTC (9am PT/6pm CET).
> To participate, join the video-call via this Wikimedia-meet link .
> There is no set agenda - feel free to add your item to the list of topics
> in the etherpad  (You can do this after you join the meeting, too.),
> otherwise you are welcome to also just hang out. More detailed information
> (e.g. about how to attend) can be found here .
> Through these office hours, we aim to make ourselves more available to
> answer some of the research related questions that you as Wikimedia
> volunteer editors, organizers, affiliates, staff, and researchers face in
> your projects and initiatives. Some example cases we hope to be able to
> support you in:
>You have a specific research related question that you suspect you
>should be able to answer with the publicly available data and you don’t
>know how to find an answer for it, or you just need some more help with it.
>For example, how can I compute the ratio of anonymous to registered editors
>in my wiki?
>You run into repetitive or very manual work as part of your Wikimedia
>contributions and you wish to find out if there are ways to use machines to
>improve your workflows. These types of conversations can sometimes be
>harder to find an answer for during an office hour, however, discussing
>them can help us understand your challenges better and we may find ways to
>work with each other to support you in addressing it in the future.
>You want to learn what the Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation
>does and how we can potentially support you. Specifically for affiliates:
>if you are interested in building relationships with the academic
>institutions in your country, we would love to talk with you and learn
>more. We have a series of programs that aim to expand the network of
>Wikimedia researchers globally and we would love to collaborate with those
>of you interested more closely in this space.
>You want to talk with us about one of our existing programs .
> Hope to see many of you,
> Martin (WMF Research Team)
