Creating, destroying, and restoring value in Wikipedia is astudy on Wikipedia with three research questions:

  • Who contributes to Wikipedia: is it a handful or thousands of people?
  • What is the impact of damage?
  • What type of damages are there?

For their study they use both the revision history as well as the page views statistics.

The paper is a finalist for Wikimedia France Research Award.

[edit] Methods

To examine types of damages they worked with 7 categories/features: Misinformation, mass delete, partial delete, offensive, spam, nonsense and other. These categories was based on the categories presented by Viegas.[1]
