Visualizing author contribution statistics in Wikis using an edit significance metric Wikipedia

WikiSym English 2011 Wiki articles tend to be edited multiple times by multiple authors. This makes it difficult to identify individual authors’ contributions by human observation alone. We calculate an edit significance metric, using different weights for different types of edits, which reflect the different value placed on them by wiki community members. We then aggregate edit significance values and present them as visualizations to the user to aid in perceiving extent and patterns of contributions. 4 0

Edit significance
WikiSym English 2010 Wikis have become a popular online collaboration platform. Their open nature can, and indeed does, lead to a large number of editors of their articles, who create a large number of revisions. These editors make various types of edits on an article, from minor ones such as spelling correction and text formatting, to major revisions such as new content introduction, whole article re-structuring, etc. Given the enormous number of revisions, it is difficult to identify the type of contributions made in these revisions through human observation alone. Moreover, different types of edits imply different edit significance. A revision that introduces new content is arguably more significant than a revision making a few spelling corrections. By taking edit types into account, better measurements of edit significance can be produced. This paper proposes a method for categorizing and presenting edits in an intuitive way and with a flexible measure of significance of each individual editor’s contributions. 11 2
