Call for participation in a task-based online experiment

Kholoudsaa (talkcontribs)

Dear Tom Morris,

I hope you are doing good,

I am Kholoud, a researcher at King's College London, and I work on a project as part of my PhD research, in which I have developed a personalised recommender system that suggests Wikidata items for the editors based on their past edits. I am collaborating on this project with Elena Simperl and Miaojing Shi.

I am inviting you to a task-based study that will ask you to provide your judgments about the relevance of the items suggested by our system based on your previous edits.

Participation is completely voluntary, and your cooperation will enable us to evaluate the accuracy of the recommender system in suggesting relevant items to you. We will analyse the results anonymised, and they will be published to a research venue.

The study will start in late January 2022 or early February 2022, and it should take no more than 30 minutes.

If you agree to participate in this study, please either contact me at kholoud.alghamdi@kcl.ac.uk or use this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSees9WzFXR0Vl3mHLkZCaByeFHRrBy51kBca53euq9nt3XWog/viewform?usp=sf_link

I will contact you with the link to start the study.

For more information about the study, please read this post: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Kholoudsaa

In case you have further questions or require more information, don't hesitate to contact me through my mentioned email.

Thank you for considering taking part in this research.

Hello from across the city! Are personal name variants effectively imported into WD? what are the options for [variant of], and do we have enough options?

Tom Morris (talkcontribs)

I don't really know anything about handling of names, I'm afraid. We've got the "said to be the same as" property, and on name objects, this is used to declare a certain "popular equivalence" relation - from Anthony to Antonin and Antonio and so on.

How's OR mentoring coming? Let's catch up soon please :)

Hi @Sj. I just stumbled across your note by happenstance when I saw @Tom Morris in the edit history for a page and was curious if he was still active. He lives across the pond, not across the city, so you probably confused him (and I never saw your note until now). I'd love to catch up! Drop me an email.

(I love when things like this make sense, even if it takes a while.)

Hey Tom Morris, please try to make a bulk request when you found more than one item so that WD:RfD does not get flooded. Thank you!

Tom Morris (talkcontribs)

Yep, will try to. Sorry for the flood.

Like some other community members, you are using Flow.

An increasing number of communities now use Flow or are considering it. Although Flow itself is not scheduled for major development during 2016 fiscal year, the Collaboration Team remains interested in the project and in providing an improved system for structured discussions.

You can help us make decisions about the way forward in this area by sharing your thoughts about Flow — what works, doesn't work or should be improved?

Please fill out this survey (available in multiple languages), which is administered by a third-party service. It will not require an email or your username. See our privacy statement.

Thanks for your ideas and opinions about Flow!

Thanks for letting me know. I'm having to manually copy the links over for each individual language version and have made a mistake. There's only about another twenty that need fixing so I'm hoping I'll crank through them when I have an hour or two spare. (Then I need to find the ones that are linked to other language versions. Then hopefully it'll all be done.)

Hi Tom. Thanks for your message. It was not one of my modifications you undid. In fact I did the same as you. Seems some stupid people are having fun vandalizing this item.

Tom Morris (talkcontribs)

Ah, sorry about that. Probably needs some protection. Will ask an admin for it shortly.
