Interview questions about Wikipedia gender gapEdit

Hi Sitush, this is Bowen here. Thank you for your interest in our project again. My colleague, Sensiblekoala and Modestabcd, mentioned here will post our interview questions to you here shortly. Please let us know if you have any questions. Bobo.03 (talk) 03:40, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Hi Sitush! I'm Caitlin here with Modestabcd. Thank you for participating in our interview. I want to give you a brief introduction before our interview begins as follows:
We are working on an AI tool to promote gender diversity in Wikipedia contents. It will create personalized recommendation to editors, specifically targeting the contents that has less coverage due to the gender gap on Wikipedia.
We want to gain input from you, as a community member, in building this tool.
The interview will consist of three groups of questions. Do we have your permission to utilize the messages from this interview in our research? We will keep all information anonymized and only use them in this research project. If you have any concerns, please avoid using names or identifying information during your interview.
Do you have any questions or concerns before we begin? Sensiblekoala (talk) 16:09, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't see how you can anonymise but conduct this on an open forum. - Sitush (talk) 09:32, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Anonymizing the data would involve excluding from publication any usernames or identifying information involved in the interview, as well as excluding the usernames of the accounts we are using to conduct the research and excluding any direct quotes. Another option is to correspond over email if this would be preferred for you. Let us know if you have any further concerns. Sensiblekoala (talk) 15:50, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

ReadingEdit

You are not writing, of course. I thought that you might like a little reading, though. Uncle G (talk) 18:07, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

  • WP:DICDEF comes to mind. In nominating a Jat related article, you're dealing with arguably one of the two persistently most disruptive and self-glorifying groups in the Indian caste system vis-a-vis Wikipedia, the other being the Rajputs. - Sitush (talk) 19:57, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
    • Well we also have Rajpasi (AfD discussion) (2nd discussion), but that already points to a page of yours, and is not such good reading as a discussion where the sources being waved around as reliable and in-depth coverage do not contain any facts about the subject at all if one actually reads them, not even the purported introductory definition of the article. Uncle G (talk) 07:18, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
      • Rajpasi = Raj Pasi = subcaste of Pasi (caste). There isn't much said about the subcaste but the main community has a reputation for glorification - they're untouchables who want to be recognised as having been degraded etc. In India, if you believe the hype, every community were kings. - Sitush (talk) 08:02, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Kurmi casteEdit

Sir, isn't the mention of race/physical features not allowed in Indian caste article? Shouldn't we remove mention of Risley's races from the Kurmi article? - Fylindfotberserk (talk) 11:37, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Yes, remove it. H. H. Risley was the archetypal scientific racist of the British Raj. - Sitush (talk) 12:17, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Sarcasm?Edit

Now that's sarcasm :) ——SerialNumber54129 16:25, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
