13:37:54 <Aguyintobooks> does this apply to small Wikipedias as well?
13:40:47 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: The research was done with two medium sized wikis for now.
13:41:17 <arrbee> Czech and Korean
13:41:29 <Aguyintobooks> I see
13:42:04 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: You can ping AbbeyRipstra or neilpquinn for more information.
13:42:33 <Aguyintobooks> Is there an equivalent research program, or one that is planned or completed, for the smaller size wikipedias?
13:42:42 <arrbee> The research document (on that page) is pretty extensive too
13:43:20 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: I don't think so. But Abbey and Neil would know more. Did you have any particular language/wiki in mind?
13:45:28 <Aguyintobooks> yes my local one:
13:47:02 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: ahh ok. But sorry, we don't know for sure.
13:48:50 <Aguyintobooks> Ok, well thanks anyway
13:49:55 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: in case you are interested there was an earlier research for readers that had more variety in terms of the wikis that were covered

13:50:14 <arrbee> Aguyintobooks: ^^
13:50:25 <Aguyintobooks> I will check it out
13:54:07 <Aguyintobooks> I am mainly asking after noticing the disparity between the different Wikipedia. For example, I live in Launceston, which is in Cornwall, the Cornish language being that of the kw-wiki.
13:54:22 <mojaam> Hi, can I read the research done on Nigeria?
13:55:06 <Aguyintobooks> its en-wiki page is pretty good:,_Cornwall. the corresponding kw-wiki page is a stub:
13:57:58 <kart_> mojaam: AbbeyRipstra can help in that.
13:58:27 <mojaam> @kart_ thanks, I've checked the logs and found it.
