Questions about your ideaEdit

Hi there Rotideypoc41352 - thanks for submitting your idea for the Inspire Campaign! I just have some questions I'd like to ask about your idea:

  1. Do you have any ideas on how to develop this idea into a research project?
  2. Do you think your idea will require funding from a Wikimedia Foundation grant, or do you think this task could be performed by volunteers?
  3. Do you think you will need technical support for this project (bots, scripts, etc.)?

You may want to consider asking others who work on the AfC process on the English Wikipedia for their expertise; I think this could be something they'd be rather interested in. Folks who work on that process might also have opinions on how this kind of research could be implemented. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 23:23, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

I'm thinking it depends on the scope. I may be able to, for example, pull thirty random articles that've passed AFC, run the DKYCheck on the version five days after mainspace publication, evaluate the other criteria, and compile the stats. But I'm wondering if it would be possible to evaluate, say, every article that's passed AfC before 23:59, 14 September 2018 (UTC) in a timely fashion. In which case I would need a script for the project. I think this task could be performed by volunteers in any case. I've never done anything like this before, on- or offline, so please feel free to let me know what you think. Thank you for waiting for my extremely belated reply.
