Grants:IdeaLab/What's wrong with Wikipedia?
Project idea edit
What Wikimedia project(s) and specific areas will you be evaluating? edit
Is this project measuring a specific space on a project (e.g. deletion discussions), or the project as a whole?
Describe your idea. How might it be implemented? edit
- The idea behind this project is to run a survey that can reach at least 100 persons from Kisangani city (East of DRC). So, for that we need a small team of 5 volunteers with whom we are going to prepare a questionnaire and collect data. When we have the result of our "research" we'd like to publish it on the wm blog. It will take us around 2 months.
Are there experienced Wikimedians who can help implement this project? edit
If applicable, please list groups or usernames of individuals who you can work with on this project, and what kind of work they will do.
- Yes, of course.
- Answers from our questionnaires
How would your measurement idea help your community make better decisions? edit
After you are finished measuring or evaluating your Wikimedia project, how do you expect that information to be used to benefit the project?
- The stats would visualize to the community how they compare to other communities in this respect.
Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need? edit
Do you need people with specific skills to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? If you can’t implement this project, can you scale down your project so it is doable?
- Yes, we have skills to run this project. But we are open to receive any other remarks or suggestions.
