Iteration[edit]

Nice. The proposed names were all very technical, but you got some more suggestions of names from the participants, so you can repeat the survey asking about those names too now. --Nemo 06:47, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed while documenting this. Indeed some answers could work for a future iteration. Lets see how this could be planned during beta. --Melamrawy (WMF) (talk) 09:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Participants[edit]

I don't see a question about being a WMF employee or wikitech-l reader. People exposed to this conversation before should have been excluded. --Nemo 06:47, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Could be a valid concern @Nemo_bis: Let me check with research team how we can add more details on participants, without breaching privacy. However, in any case, the research team works with external volunteers (definitely not WMF staff), and their work process needs more documentation, like the other documentation needed on other details of all projects..:). Thanks for the comments, Nemo. --Melamrawy (WMF) (talk) 09:52, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Ok. --Nemo 07:14, 5 April 2015 (UTC)

Should have offered "Favorites"[edit]

I think favorites is a much better description of this feature - because it highlights the fact that this is user-specific, POV list. --Yurik (talk) 17:53, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

In fact two participants suggested this name.
If users see this feature as «it creates a collection of article thumbnails», maybe it can be called "album" (in trading card/figurine sense). Or "personal gallery". Related words according to my analogical dictionary are "binder" and "holder". --Nemo 07:14, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
