User:Kleuske/Huang Xianfan

On Sunday August 15th user ErikvanB nominated two pages, nl:Huang Xianfan and nl:Zhuangstudie for deletion, citing poor use of language and the sheer wikipedia precence. Simular articles exist on (according to the nominator) 160 wiki's. Contributors to these pages are usually quite singleminded and contrubute to (virtually) nothing else. As evidence for his claim, ErikvanB provided the following excerpt of his findings

The same user, also alerted me to a few interesting remarks, zuch as user Xiyang being blocked for sockpuppetry and the discussion on Huang Xianfan, where people wondered how Huang Xianfan appears on more wikipedia projects than Mao Zedong. Which is remarkable, to say the least. The discussion of whether or not these are automatic translations also yields some interesting information:

  • [1] Bulgarians are asking questions and think the language of the article is indicative of a machine translation
  • [2] In japan, the language is called funny japanese.
  • [3] Latvians also have these doubts.

Anonymous contributionsEdit

Given the subject matter, it is not unexpected that a majority of anonymous contributors comes from china. What is a bit weird, and telling, is that all of them come from two networks: Hurricane Electric, Inc. and CHINANET Guangxi. If this person were as wellknown as the spread of the articles on wikipedia suggests, i would expect to see more providers hosting anonymous contributors. Instead, there's only 2.


These are the finding as provided by nl:Gebruiker:ErikvanB.

The following is a breakdown of contributions by user. Users who have contributed to only one project were omitted, as were (most of the) bots, at least, those i could confirm were actual bots. The table was composed by a tool called Droopy, which i constructed for the occasion...

Usernames in red denote users who's only contributions (worldwide) are to the article in question or related matters uzhc as creating categories to hold the article, inserting it into list of anthropologists, etc. The green usernames denote those that were detected, but contribute to a wide range of subjects.
