Wikibugs: Using template messages in open content collections is a 2009 conference paper written in English by Gaio L., Den Besten M., Rossi A., Dalle J.-M. and published in Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration, WiKiSym 2009.

[edit] Abstract

In the paper we investigate an organizational practice meant to increase the quality of commons-based peer production: the use of template messages in wiki-collections to highlight editorial bugs and call for intervention. In the context of SimpleWiki, an online encyclopedia of the Wikipedia family, we focus on {complex}, a template which is used to flag articles disregarding the overall goals of simplicity and readability. We characterize how this template is placed on and removed from articles and we use survival analysis to study the emergence and successful treatment of these bugs in the collection. Copyright
