Next Steps (Dec 5)[edit]

Data collection & analysis[edit]

  • Get missing wikis:
    • Salt will use wikiList.3.csv to find which wikis we don't have.
    • Salt will email Mako the list, and he will ask the Spaniards whether they have them
    • Collect any others we need (Salt, Mako)
  • By Dec 6: Gather data for all wikis that made the switch within the first wave of migrations to msg walls (including re-running wikiq, new wikilist, and so on.) (Nate)
    • Partition Danny Horn csv into train and test sets (Nate) [done]
  • Write down preliminary inclusion criteria for analysis (Sneha, Nate) [done]
  • By Dec 12: Implement current inclusion criteria for analysis on training set [done]
    • Update existing READMEs, and write codebook describing all variables in detail (Sneha) [done]
  • By Jan 25 - Debug editweeks code/identify source of pre-cutoff edits (Nate)
  • By Jan 25 - Start writing analysis code
  • By Feb 15 - Get initial results, make headway on written draft


  • Early April - run analysis on test set

Writing[edit]

  • By Dec 15 - Convert draft of framing, literature review and methodology sections to ACM format (Sneha)
  • Week of Jan 8 - Check-in meeting to discuss preliminary results (Sneha)
  • By Jan 15 - Draft results section of the paper, identify changes to be made to framing/intro based on results (Sneha)
  • By Jan 31 - Complete first draft of paper (Sneha)
  • April 16 - CSCW abstract + metadata deadline
  • April 19 - CSCW submission deadline

Next Steps (Nov 30)[edit]

  • (Nate) Update code diagram to say we're using wikiList.3.csv
  • (Nate) Write python code to create training set
  • (Nate and Salt) Link missing dumps to online dump sources
  • (Sneha) Write R code for analyzing data at the edit weeks level


Next Steps (Oct 5)[edit]

  • (Salt) Verify which dumps are good
  • (Nate, Salt) Make sure Sneha gets a path to the tsv files from wikiq output
  • (Sneha) Run inclusion criteria code
  • (Sneha) Update code diagram

Next Steps (Sept 28)[edit]

  • (Nate) Finish refactoring build wiki list code (DONE)
  • (Nate) Make code architecture diagram (DONE)
  • (Nate) Continue work on bot and admin scraper (DONE)
  • (Nate, from last week) Convert dates to lubridate (DONE)
  • (Sneha) Contact Danny Horn to get information on message wall rollouts
  • (Sneha) Determine inclusion criteria for wikis, and write python code to subset the ones we want

Next Steps (Sept 20)[edit]

  • (Nate) Convert all dates to lubridate

Next Steps (Aug 24)[edit]

  • (Sneha) Add list of variables to build to the wiki
  • (Salt) Verify whether the wiki dumps are solid
  • (Nate) Generate 'contributor experience' variables for every edit in the dataset
  • (Nate) Generate bot and admin data for the larger wiki dataset

Next Steps (Aug 15)[edit]

  • (Salt) Edit build wikilist code to map filenames with message wall transition dates
  • (Sneha) Continue preliminary analysis with 25 wikis
  • (Nate) Continue investigating what dumps we can get from wikiteam

Next Steps (Aug 1)[edit]

  • (Salt) Make file with mapping between urls and the newly scraped dumps.
  • (Nate with Mako's help) Figure out what's going on in the wiki mapping code
  • (Sneha) Plan for visit in September

  • (Sneha) create list of subsetting characteristics (inclusion criteria for Wikis) for study.
  • (Sneha) create exploratory plots for a larger set of wikis of different sizes.
  • (Sneha) Request new dumps for missing wikis.
