Articulations of wikiwork: Uncovering valued work in wikipedia through barnstars is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Kriplean T., Beschastnikh I., McDonald D.W. and published in Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work, CSCW.
Successful online communities have complex cooperative arrangements, articulations of work, and integration practices. They require technical infrastructure to support a broad division of labor. Yet the research literature lacks empirical studies that detail which types of work are valued by participants in an online community. A content analysis of Wikipedia barnstars - personalized tokens of appreciation given to participants - reveals a wide range of valued work extending far beyond simple editing to include social support, administrative actions, and types of articulation work. Our analysis develops a theoretical lens for understanding how wiki software supports the creation of articulations of work. We give implications of our results for communities engaged in large-scale collaborations. Copyright 2008 ACM.
