Thank you for enabling it again. I had read about the blind tests in <
before but I see some major changes in the graphs, which are a bit hard to
1) In "Daily moderation actions
(percentage)" there's a huge spike of
helpful/unhelpful after C (July), did those flags even exist before? Or did
helpfulness increase after wider usage according to the finding «the
average page receives higher quality feedback than pages picked for their
popularity/controversial topic»? (There's no change between 5 and 10 %
*They did; the spike is most probably caused by a deployment from 0.6
percent of articles to 5 percent of articles, with a resulting "ooh, shiny!
Lets take a look" reaction.
2) "Unique daily articles with feedback moderated" shows a spike and then a
stabilization, but I don't know what the graphs
actually is about. For
instance, can feedback be moderated per article ("feedback semi/full
protection" or so) or only per item, etc. Do you know if moderation happens
on the same articles and if stricter moderation increases helpfulness of
feedback also on non-moderated articles?
*So, I *believe* it means "the number of distinct articles which have had
feedback moderated that day", regardless of whether people use the
article-specific page or the centralised page, but I'm not sure - some
clarification from Dario would be awesome :). Ditto your other questions,
particularly on the distribution of articles.
