Italian Wikipedia (itwiki) experiment analysis
Open, LowPublic


Some members of the itwiki community have decided to test mobile anonymous editing on Italian Wikipedia for 2 months (November-December 2014).

They haven't really thought about how they're going to evaluate this test at all. Nothing immediately actionable here, but it's worth monitoring.

There's renewed interest in updating this analysis because of the rollout of anon editing on all wikis.

Awesome – thanks, @Halfak! I wonder what the quality of these contribs is... not a huge priority, but if you get bored and wanna look into revert rates in your spare time, it would be super fascinating :)

  1. Halfak 2015-01-05:

Updated my analysis here:

Looks like we're still seeing substantial growth in mobile anonymous editing. It looks like a recent change reducing the number of clicks separating an anon from the edit pane may be to blame for recent growth.

Preliminary analysis here:

As I said, it's not currently actionable. Just putting it here as a reminder; not sure what else to do to keep it on our radar.

@DarTar @maryanapinchuk I'm not sure about the significance of this card. It's very low on the priority list -- how much do we care?

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
