Abstract
This presentation will focus on our work on WikiProject X, a project funded by a Wikimedia Foundation Individual Engagement Grant to research and improve the WikiProject experience on the English Wikipedia, where WikiProjects are community spaces dedicated to specific subjects or goals.
This will partially be a rehash of the wikimania presentation we did, but with more conclusions on account of this part of the project actually being concluded at this point, as well as, on account of it probably being only the designer presenting this time, a much heavier emphasis on the design process and how horrible it all was.
To sum it all up in a nice list, because we all like lists:
  • Our research on the existing state of WikiProjects
  • Stories, pilot project volunteers, etc
  • Mockups
  • Horrible reality - scripts, hacks, initial pilot, bots, wikidata stuff
  • More mockups!
  • Pilot projects and lessons learned from initial iteration
  • AGH THE HORROR WHY WOULD YOU EVEN DO THAT?!
  • Why didn't it occur to us sooner to actually use a workflow manager for a project about improving workflows?
  • Second batch of pilot projects
  • Wrap up and things to explore and work on in the future
Length of presentation
30 min or so
