> The complete reports on WMF research on AFT5 can be found here:
> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Article_feedback
> The tool is currently deployed on a random 10% sample of English Wikipedia articles so it's not surprising most readers/editors don't see it very often. We are currently collecting about 4K unique feedback messages per day: http://toolserver.org/~dartar/aft5
> As for the quality of feedback – as judged by community members and readers – we have some preliminary usage data coming from the FeedbackPage: http://toolserver.org/~dartar/fp/ as well as results based on blind assessment by Wikipedians that we ran during the early stages of AFT5 research (see the "Quality assessment" sections in the research reports above).

Graphs are empty for me there, is it just me?

> We will be publishing shortly an update on FeedbackPage data, but as the feature is not rolled out on the entire project and not many editors or readers know how to find the FeedbackPage (i.e. the only place where comments can be filtered, flagged and moderated), these results should not be taken as conclusive.
> A full roll out of AFT5 on the entire English Wikipedia is scheduled for Q4 2012.
