[edit] Abstract

In this paper, we describe a study-in-progress aimed at evaluating and improving the quality of online deliberation. We analyze the use of rationales in article deletion discussions on Wikipedia. Our preliminary findings suggest that the majority of participants in these discussions were concerned with the notability and credibility of the topics, and for the most part presented cogent rationales based on established site policies.
