Hyperstructure maintenance costs in large-scale wikis
Abstract Wiki systems have developed over the past Wiki systems have developed over the past years as lightweight, community-editable, web-based hypertext systems. With the emergence of Semantic Wikis, these collections of interlinked documents have also gained a dual role as adhoc RDF [8] graphs. However, their roots lie at the limited hypertext capabilities of the World Wide Web [1]: embedded links, without support for composite objects or transclusion. In this paper, we present experimental evidence that hyperstructure changes, as opposed to content changes, form a substantial proportion of editing effort on a large-scale wiki. The experiment is set in the wider context of a study of how the technologies developed during decades of hypertext research may be applied to improve management of wiki document structure and, with semantic wikis, knowledge structure. with semantic wikis, knowledge structure.
