Hey folks,

I'd like to offer a new request for subject recruitment for your review: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Understanding_Wikipedia_Coordination_Spaces_and_Costs

I think this project is ready, so I need your input.  I'd like to close the discussion by Monday, May 14th.  

  • Researcher: Jodi Schneider from the Digital Enterprise Research Institute
  • Recruitment: 10 new participants in AfD discussions (via 40 Special:EmailUser invitations)
  • Study: 1 on 1 interviews
  • Primary RQ: Where are newcomers having trouble participating in AfD discussions?

Looks good to me. Jodi has conducted interviews with community members in the past, and has always done a sterling job. I commented to point out that Maryana and I recently got brief Q&A data about AFD and PROD from about 40 editors,[1] though our questions were more about the user talk notifications for those processes.
