Growth team IP editors research: page creation and edit queries
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Contact: @MRaishWMF

Research question 1: when IP editors create useful new pages, do they do so at a different rate than registered users? How does the size of those pages compare to those of registered users?

Query: on a per-wiki, per-month basis, split it by namespace and identify if the namespace is a "content" namespace: count the number of pages created by IPs and registered users, and the average (median? geometric average?) page length. Filter out pages that are "immediately" deleted (might require identifying what "immediately" means on a per-wiki basis).

Research Question 2: When IP editors make constructive edits (not reverted w/i 48 hours of being made), do they do so at a different rate than registered users?
(similar query as above, but aggregate edits)

Research question 3: Which of the Wikipedias in the list below have a user group equivalent to the English Wikipedia's "autopatroller" group.

Wikipedias we're querying data for: Arabic (ar), Bengali (bn), Czech (cs), English (en), Spanish (es), Persian (fa), French (fr), Japanese (ja), Dutch (nl), Polish (pl), Portuguese (pt), Russian (ru), Turkish (tr)
Time range for data query: 3 years back
Data format: CSV/TSV
User groups to exclude: bots

@nettrom_WMF , are you still planning to work on this task any time soon?

I'm going to decline this for now as we 1) haven't gotten around to it, and 2) there hasn't been any new developments indicating that we need to prioritize it. If this changes @MRaishWMF , please let me know and we'll pick it up and schedule it.
