Rationale
  • We should keep this questionaire as short as possible, to make sure as many as possible answer it
  • We should include questions that are interesting for the new users' life on Wikipedia, such as bias, knowledge background and experience with Wikipedia
  • The relatively simple code is an attempt to make sure that as many as people answer it.
  • This template can be categorized, to make it easier to find those new users who may need assistance.

Notes[edit]

  • This would be a template like we tried in a previous test on English Wikipedia, namely this template with this page as the introduction
  • It would be very good if we could make these answers as text fields that are variables, which could then be loaded into the real user page - complete with the tabs below.
  • The important thing here is to make it easy for the new user to see that there are others who care about Wikipedia, that there are people to connect with, and that the new user is never alone.
  • Something about one's bias, perhaps?
