Analyze the effect of blocking IP edits on Portuguese Wikipedia
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Since October 5, 2020, Portuguese Wikipedia has redirected all IP users who try to edit to the account creation page. We should analyze what effect this has on:

  • Rate of editing
  • Rate of reverting
  • Rate of “good edits” (this is probably the most important)
  • Rate of new account creation

If the effects turn out to be negligible or positive (which is unlikely), we should consider Portuguese Wikipedia's approach as an alternative to IP masking.
