Growth team projects on Hungarian Wikipedia

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello Bencemac!

While Hungarian Wikipedia is part of the wikis Growth team is targeting, your community feedback is particularly valued!

Can you help us? If so, we are looking for someone to share the considered ideas with the Hungarian community (by translating the key ideas for instance) and collecting feedback. Would that interest you?

@Trizek (WMF) Sorry for the late answer. I wrote a post and asked my community to share their ideas too.

Hello Bencemac

Thank you for your help. Any updates?

@Trizek (WMF) Only those comments which are about the project.

  • One user wrote about her/his bad experiences (en:Wikipedia:Civility could be a solution) as an experienced editor. Furthermore she/he mentioned that "advices" (e.g. warnings about missing sources) scare the new users at their first days.
  • The next editor wrote that new users should learn our rules step by step, help desks/pages are open for their questions (they have not had any unsolvable questions till now, which is true).

@Texaner thinks that this project is a nice "white elephant". Your answer would be appreciated if you have time for that.

Thank you for that feedback. I'm gathering it with others. :)

I also note that, beyond Texaner's white elephant opinion, there is his opinion (if I have understood it correctly): not just keep new people busy with tasks, but make them real community members. Am I correct?

In any case, a project like that can't be achieved without community help. I've seen that on my wiki (French Wikipedia), where initiatives about newbies have been successful when the majority of the active community has started to get involved.

Texaner was saying that keeping old editors and cooperating with them would be more important then forcing them to leave. Reszelésük means that we slowly file them like a cheese (reduce their number).

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I see. The goal is not to show the edit to old editors but to keep it open (with guidances) to new ones.
