Meeting minutes from Collab Team coordination

Meeting notes 2017/07/24

Present: JMatazzoni, AWight

  • Adam is thrilled with the new preferences design.  Basic/Legacy ORES prefs will now live on a “Monitoring Changes” tab, in a context that makes sense and should be easy to find.  The preferences themselves will be the same controls we currently display on both the Watchlist and Recent Changes tabs.
  • Joe will revisit the noscript case, but it’s probably going to be the same as the “Users who don’t have the new UX at all” (case #3) in the draft preferences design, where the user has chosen to forgo the new RC filters and instead use the “basic” versions of the filtering UI.
  • We discussed qualifying the Revision Scoring field group with an adjective like “Basic”, and explaining in the description text that a whole new interface is available, these prefs only apply to the old-school UI.
  • Looked over T167911 together and agreed to the “Current agreements”.
  • We discussed the configuration to enable Extension:ORES UI separate from the infrastructure.  We thought it would make sense for this config to also control the legacy ORES elements, so from the user’s perspective, nothing changes when we deploy the extension in pure infrastructure mode.  T167908
  • Once this quarter ends, Collaboration’s position on maintenance is something like:
    • Bugfixes are budgeted into the team’s nominal 50% reserve capacity for tech debt, and will get onto their workboard.  As an example, deploying a new type of model which would require new filters could  fit into the maintenance category.
    • Other new features for the ORES UX are not planned at this time. But Collab Team would be very happy to talk about them and, if they are not too sizeable, may be able to work them in.
    • If there are big new ideas that would require substantial development, the Collaboration team would be honored to have a conversation to figure out what to do.  They would have to schedule big stuff in the Annual Plan (process underway now).

Collaboration is planning to help with the Wiki Labels upload next quarter, but it’s only on the unofficial roadmap.  No other ORES work is on their roadmap.

Join my Reddit AMA about ORES

Hey folks, I'm doing an experimental Reddit AMA ("ask me anything") in r/IAmA on June 1st at 21:00 UTC. For those who don't know, I create artificial intelligences that support the volunteers who edit Wikipedia like ORES. I've been studying the ways that crowds of volunteers build massive, high quality information resources like Wikipedia for over ten years.

This AMA will allow me to channel that for new audiences in a different (for us) way. I'll be talking about the work I'm doing with the ethics and transparency of the design of AI, how we think about artificial intelligence on Wikipedia, and ways we’re working to counteract vandalism. I'd love to have your feedback, comments, and questions—preferably when the AMA begins, but also on the ORES flow board.

If you'd like to know more about what I do, see my WMF staff user page, this Wired piece about my work or my paper, "The Rise and Decline of an Open Collaboration System: How Wikipedia’s reaction to popularity is causing its decline"

The team hasn't officially started yet, but I'm working to get the docs in place anyway.
