|Visualizing author contribution statistics in Wikis using an edit significance metric||Peter Kin-Fong Fong
Robert P. Biuk-Aghai
|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.||0||0|
|What Did They Do? Deriving High-Level Edit Histories in Wikis||Peter Kin-Fong Fong
Robert P. Biuk-Aghai
|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||0|

|Studying cooperation and conflict between authors with history flow visualizations||Fernanda B. Viégas
|CHI||English||2004||The Internet has fostered an unconventional and powerful style of collaboration: “wiki” web sites, where every visitor has the power to become an editor. In this paper we investigate the dynamics of Wikipedia, a prominent, thriving wiki. We make three contributions. First, we introduce a new exploratory data analysis tool, the history flow visualization, which is effective in revealing patterns within the wiki context and which we believe will be useful in other collaborative situations as well. Second, we discuss several collaboration patterns highlighted by this visualization tool and corroborate them with statistical analysis. Third, we discuss the implications of these patterns for the design and governance of online collaborative social spaces. We focus on the relevance of authorship, the value of community surveillance in ameliorating antisocial behavior, and how authors with competing perspectives negotiate their differences.||3||17|
