In Nov last year I analyzed the user contributions on our Wiki. 4 months past, so I did it again:
-2186 Users were active during the past 3 month
-72.3% did less than 10 edits/3 months
-97% did less than 100 edits/3 months
-only 34 users did over 150 edits/3 months
So I have to say nothing significant changed :(
But it's you we need! A wiki is only useful when it's alive, when outdated content got replaced and everybody does just a bit of this job.
A wiki is OUR library and not a collection of articles that is owned by the authors. So please help us doing one of the following things:
You found a page where you know it's last edit is years ago? Check if it's still true what the content says. You might want to ask the editor if it's ok if you edit the page, but this is a wiki, you don't have to cause everything can be undone.
Labeling bad pages
Not the time to update the page? At least mark them for others! Just add one of the following statements to the text.
Find lost pages
You can use this wikipages to find uncategorized and lonely pages. Now add
- [[MyCategory]] at the end of the page for corresponding category
- [[wikipage]] on words you know there are wikipages for
Everything you do can help! There is a preview on your edit, so don't be afraid you damage anything. Any troubles? Contact the wikiteam, you are not alone!
