Vandalism and conflict resolution in wikipedia. An empirical analysis on how a large-scale web-based community deals with breaches of the online peace is a 2011 conference paper written in English by Roessing T. and published in Proceedings of the IADIS International Conferences - Web Based Communities and Social Media 2011, Social Media 2011, Internet Applications and Research 2011, Part of the IADIS, MCCSIS 2011.

[edit] Abstract

The paper discusses the proceedings on the anti-vandalism page of the German language version of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. Research questions address the structure of vandalism reports, the distribution over time of day and the relationship between conflict potential and conflict resolution. A quantitative analysis of 500 vandalism reports reveals that the anti-vandalism page is a good indicator for conflicts within the community and its deficits in dealing with them.
