Watch how Wikipedia newbies feel about editing


For the past few months, the “Moodbar” function has invited new users on the English Wikipedia to indicate how they feel about their first editing experiences, and why. Today, the Feedback Dashboard was launched, an experimental live stream displaying these comments. Take a look to find out what makes new editors Happy, Sad, or Confused!

Great initiative! I was wondering what are you going to do with the remarks? I think for newbies Wikipedia is not the easiest way to start. Newbies should start on wikiversity.org instead, it’s much more easier. Cheers Tim.
