Visualizing Activity on Wikipedia with Chromograms
Abstract To investigate how participants in peer prTo investigate how participants in peer production systems allocate their time, we examine editing activity on Wikipedia, the well-known online encyclopedia. To analyze the huge edit histories of the site’s administrators we introduce a [[visualization]] technique, the [[chromogram]], that can display very long textual sequences through a simple color coding scheme. Using chromograms we describe a set of characteristic [[editing patterns]]. In addition to confirming known patterns, such reacting to [[vandalism events]], we identify a distinct class of organized systematic activities. We discuss how both reactive and systematic strategies shed light on self-allocation of effort in Wikipedia, and how they may pertain to other peer-production systems. pertain to other peer-production systems.
