We should get a proper sample from *readers*, not only active contributors who happen to
be reading this list. We should not use such a non-wiki medium as Google Hangouts which is
a participation barrier. We should not force people to do surveys.
I suggest we put a small feedback textbox in the sidebar of all Wikimedia projects, below
everything above the langs list, and analyse output from that.

The Wikimedia Foundation's Design Research team, Abbey Ripstra and Daisy
Chen, are looking for people to participate in research about editing.
They want to talk with both experienced editors and new editors to better
understand what you do, how you do it, what is difficult and what works
well with editing tools.
Currently, they're doing some hour-long research interviews over Google
In the future, there will be other types of research programs, probably
including a card sorting task to determine how editing tools and tasks
could be organized to suit you best.
If you would like to hear about opportunities to participate in user-based
research, please sign up here:
This is a small survey to fill out so the research team knows a little bit
about your experience level and how to contact you to invite you to
research. You can always opt out again, and signing up does not obligate
you to participate.
Please pass this along. Thank you!
