Mentor dashboard coming soon to your wiki[çavkaniyê biguhêre]

Hello Balyozxane, Bikarhêner and Penaber49

Sorry to use English, Please help translate to your language.

Starting tomorrow, you will have access to Special:MentorDashboard.

This special page will list the newcomers who are assigned to you so that you can check if they do some edits or if the need help. This tool is still a work in progress. Some bugs may appear, please let me know if you find something strange.

Also, a new filter will be available for mentors. Mentors can monitor their mentees' activity in Watchlist and RecentChanges, so they can help support their mentees' work. For privacy reasons, this filter can't be accessed by someone else than the mentor itself. This filter only filters mentees assigned to the mentor. This filter is not visible for people who are not listed as mentors

In the future, we will add more functions to this Mentor page.

Please ping me if you have questions! Trizek (WMF) (gotûbêj) 14:06, 26 çiriya pêşîn 2021 (UTC)Bersiv bide[bersiv bide]

Silav Trizek (WMF), Thank you for your interest. I will try to get to know the tool. Thanks on behalf of the Kurdish Wikipedia community. Penaber49 (gotûbêj) 17:09, 26 çiriya pêşîn 2021 (UTC)Bersiv bide[bersiv bide]

Have you recently checked if all mentors are active?[çavkaniyê biguhêre]

Hello!

Sorry to use English. Please help translate to your language.

One of the goals of the Growth features is to create a connexion between newcomers and experienced users. This way, you can help promising newcomers to become more active users, but you can also discourage spammers to edit. :) As a consequence, it is important to have active mentors. We encourage your community to check if mentors are currently active. If they are not active, please consider to remove them from the list.

You have access to Special:MentorDashboard, to check on how the mentees assigned to you are going. Soon, we will provide anew module on this page. This new module will allow you to set yourself as away (for instance when you go on vacation), or to define the number of newcomers you want to take care of.

We have recently found some mentor descriptions that were not working. Please also check if the descriptions on the mentor list exceed 240 characters, or if they include HTML, CSS or wikitext. If it is the case, please note that these descriptions won't work. This may not apply to your wiki.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please post them below (don't forget to ping me, please), or directly at the Growth team page (in any language). You can also subscribe to the Growth newsletter, or check on our FAQ.

Please share this message with all mentors.

Thank you for your help! And thank you for being mentors. :) Trizek (WMF) (gotûbêj) 17:51, 14 sibat 2022 (UTC)Bersiv bide[bersiv bide]

An important update regarding the list of mentors[çavkaniyê biguhêre]

Hello

This is an important information about the list of mentors. Sorry to use English. Please help translate to your language.

Starting October 26, 2022, the list of mentors will be upgraded. The mentorship system will continue to work as it does now.

Why this change?

At the moment, the mentor list is a simple page anyone can edit, unless it’s protected.

We have observed some cases where mentors were not following the instructions, which generated some mistakes. The old syntax [[user:Name]]|Description is confusing and won't be used anymore.

Also, this new system will make the development of new features for mentors much easier.

What will change?

We will add a new special page to your wiki: Special:ManageMentors.

The page where mentors are currently listed will be edited. The list of mentors will be replaced by {{Special:ManageMentors}}, the rest of the page will not be changed.

If your wiki has a separate list of mentors for workshop mentors, this list will be converted as well.

What are the new features?

After the upgrade, new mentors will signup by visiting Special:MentorDashboard. At this page, mentors can change the number of mentees they take care of, mark themselves as away or quit.

The new system prevents users who made less than 500 edits and who created their account less than 30 days ago to become mentors. These values can be changed by the community on special:EditGrowthConfig.

Special:ManageMentors will list all mentors, and the last time they edited. It will look like a table (example). This special page can be transcluded to any page (example).

Mentors will edit their description and settings directly at Special:MentorDashboard. Administrators will be able to edit any mentor's description and settings at Special:ManageMentors, or remove a mentor from the list of mentors. This will reassign all newcomers the mentor has to other mentors.

What mentors have to do?

No action is needed regarding your inscription to the mentors list.

You will have to update the description of the list of mentors, to remove the old instructions and explain the new sign-up process to become a mentor.

When will it happen?

The deployment will happen starting October 26, after 13:00 UTC. The change will be made by Martin Urbanec (WMF).

How can we know more about it?

The project page, documentation and FAQ have been updated. These pages can be translated.

Of course, if you have any question about this upgrade, please ping me!

Thank you. Trizek (WMF) (gotûbêj) 19:05, 19 çiriya pêşîn 2022 (UTC)Bersiv bide[bersiv bide]
